March 21 is National Fragrance Day

March 21st, 2015 by

PetitTrinonBottle&DaylilyWeb

I love this weekend!  We have just experienced an eclipse, Vernal Equinox – the First Day of Spring, and a New Moon.  The fun continues…today is National Fragrance Day!  Where would we be without fragrance in our lives?

For most of us our day begins with a scented soap in the shower, fragrance in our shampoo and conditioner, and scented lotion and body oil.  Then we apply or anoint ourselves with a natural parfum or spray on a eau de toilette or eau de parfum. We are surrounded by the scents we have applied. It is so very important that our fragrance smells good to us…and if it has benefits that is so much better.

JoAnne Bassett natural perfumes have aromatherapy benefits…uplifting, centering, grounding, raising self esteem, supporting on many levels, emotional and physical.  You can feel more confident, more alive, energized…and on and on.  Would you like your fragrance to support you in addition to smelling good?

I use the most energetic and expensive raw materials I can find.  It is really about the quality and how it makes you feel. When people come into “your space” 2 to 3 feet away from you they can smell you.

Too many people have asthma, allergies, or are chemically sensitive due to the cheap synthetic chemicals found in department store and mainstream fragrances.  Some artisan perfumers choose to use chemicals derived from petroleum and others.

Make a healthy choice.  Your natural perfume can last 6 hours or more with one application.  Reapplying your perfume is a ritual even with a synthetic niche fragrance.

Enjoy your fragrance today..and be aware of what you are using on your largest organ of your body…your skin. You eat organic food and would not eat GMO’s if you were aware they are in your food and drink.  Why would you put harmful chemicals on your skin?  It does not make sense.

I invite you to read over the ingredients used in my 100% natural perfumes.  Make a healthy choice today and purchase a sample pack of JoAnne Bassett natural fragrances.  Do it for yourself and your loved ones.  They will thank you and their nose will thank you.  Enjoy!


Spring at JoAnne Bassett Natural Perfumes

March 20th, 2015 by

JB-125x125-ad

A refreshing spray of Le Voyage eau de toilette will take you on a journey. Float away on a cloud of citrus and revel in the white rose heart. Start your creative juices with the pink lotus hydro distilled essential oil…and dive deep. Frolic in the jasmine sambac and linden blossom. Play all out and then go inside yourself…with the frankincense and vintage Mysore sandalwood powder…softening. You will be transported!

Do you love the smell of orange blossoms?  Walking under the trees when the sun is shining bright and the breeze picks up? It is heavenly. My Opulence parfum feels like that to me. Take the dauber and anoint yourself with a drop of this parfum… your reward is the immediate blossom of the neroli and orange blossom absolute.  It quickly morphs into a plethora of soft roses, moving through a distinct note of ambergris. The powdery dry down of the vintage Mysore sandalwood make you want to swoon. Be prepared to smile and melt into its floral goodness.

Floral – A beautiful floral created from neroli, Vintage Bulgarian white rose otto -“the flower of light”, vintage Mysore sandalwood, orange blossom absolute, Bulgarian rose damask concrete, rare ambergris, and others.

If the parfum in organic jojoba oil is not your style…a spray of the Opulence eau de parfum will create a light cloud around you that will uplift you.  Enjoy!

Walk through fields of flowers with JoAnne’s 100% natural perfumes.  You will be glad you did!
