New Moon, New Beginnings, New You

February 17th, 2015 by

On the New Moon each month I choose to create Magic for my discerning clients. They insist on the finest ingredients, a one of a kind special Custom Couture Parfum just for them. My Gold Customs are created with my vintage essential oils and absolutes. These are rare and extremely precious, natural oils created from flowers and plants. You have never smelled any thing like them!

Luscious Roses hi res

You deserve to have the very finest and most opulent perfume available. You know you want it and now.  Why wait 6 months or more to have a Perfumer in France or elsewhere create a perfume with synthetic oils that are created in a laboratory?  They also charge $50,000 or more for them. They may use some natural raw materials but they specialize in synthetic perfumes.

I am a Custom Couture Perfumer and Master Perfumer creating magnificent perfumes that can be ready to use in approximately 2 weeks. Why wait?

Order your perfume today!  The New Moon is tomorrow and this is a splendid way to begin this new cycle.

Review of Sybarite eau de parfum

February 10th, 2015 by

FEBRUARY 10, 2015

From the CaFleurebon blog:

New Fragrance Review: JoAnne Bassett Perfumes Sybarite + A Voyage with Audrey Hepburn Draw

JoAnne Bassett  Natural perfumer

California luxury botanical perfumer, JoAnne Bassett has created an ultimatum; the aroma of a sybarite. The word is defined as, “someone dedicated to luxury and pleasure.”  Somewhat of an anthem for any perfume, JoAnne follows through in her work, using a stock of oils she collected in her global travels in the 80’s and 90’s. The name Sybarite arrived by coming across the term in Conde Nast magazine, and finding it fitting for herself, JoAnne naturally turned this term into an olfactory concept. While available in many options, JoAnne works with a local glass blower who makes artisan bottles for her collections, in this case a blue bottle the color of churning, bubbling seawater encased inside a book box complete with hand sewn pillow, involving yet another local artisan.

Not that I am overly familiar with such things, but somehow Sybarite is the inside of a Louis Vuitton steamer trunk- bought for Audrey Hepburn and ready to be filled for the voyage across the sea. There is a self-proclaiming sophistication about Sybarite’s opening, a body of Bulgarian rosa damascena v. alba purchased in 1999 (white rose otto-  JoAnne refers to this as the “flower of Light”) and Egyptian rose otto hobnob with neroli, orange blossom and osmanthus.  A botanical Hermes scarf with apricot osmanthus jam criss-crossing and encircling orange blossoms. Already, there can be no mistake- this is an aroma of refinement. While mellow and approachable- nothing has been spared Sybarite’s gilded presence.

Sybarites find ways to support their indulgences and the perfume supports itself upon, what else? More luxury. Poised upon botanical musk and oud, finally it’s revealed where the steam trunk illusion came from and it makes for a not quite leather but born to be spilled into fine leather handbags aroma. Oud is certainly carrying the osmanthus fruit hint and the musk is proof positive of worn clothes tossed casually for the jaunt. This expensive base accord gives Sybarite longevity and projection with a “look but don’t touch” perimeter. Cistus has been added to keep anything musk well-groomed and frankincense to remind one of good manners and a lightness which Sybarite carries.

A collection of notes which calls for beauty, Sybarite is the classic refinement which fulfills the homage of it’s name. Notes: Bulgarian white rose otto, orange blossom absolute, osmanthus absolute, neroli oil, Damask rose absolute (Egypt), hydro-distilled frankincense, oud-agarwood, natural musk, and cistus.

Warm for Winter Discovery Set of Natural Perfume

January 30th, 2015 by

Warm for Winter Discovery Set

Put away your hot weather citrus and floral scents. Bring out your heavy scents with oud, amber, woods, resins and floral orientals for those crisp days and nights. After the Winter Solstice we have short days and cold nights…revel in the woods and deep parfums.

Try these winter scents in a 8 piece sample pack. It includes 1 ml glass vials of eau de parfums of Camille, Colette, Italian Smoke, Vert, Intimacy, Timeless, Venus Amber, and Sensual Embrace.

1. Camille – An earthy, iris aroma which turns quickly into a fruity, leathery osmanthus. The jasmine and tuberose are sheer and not too exotic with an amber base. It is a great floral and friendly for work environments. A Chypre style. Notes: Osmanthus, Iris Root from Italy, Mimosa, Tuberose, vintage Jasmine sambac, Lavender Seville, Galbanum, Ginger, Bergamot, and others
2. Colette – A gourmand with mushrooms and cognac. Great combo!
Notes: Cepes and White Cognac from France, various citrus essences, and others
3. Intimacy – Intimacy is a very old vintage type chypre (like the original Coty Chypre of 1917) with oakmoss, Italian bergamot, vintage grandifolium jasmine, vintage Mysore sandalwood, vintage iris root, vanilla absolute, vintage patchouli, natural musk, labdanum, Bulgarian damask rose otto, Rose de Mai, balsam, others. The true oakmoss lover’s consummate bliss. Vintage is rich and voluptuous.  This is dark, deep, complex and alluring. Intimacy eau de parfum is a 2013 Indie FiFi nominee!
4. Italian Smoke – Italian Smoke eau de parfum is created from tobacco, neroli – orange blossoms, orange, vintage jasmine grandifolium, vanilla absolute, and vintage Mysore sandalwood. This is my impression of an Italian Gentleman. A golden tobacco note full of the Italian sun
5. Sensual Embrace – We all long for a sensual embrace. We yearn for a lover to hold us, to love us, and to accept us. This musky, sexy juice will fire up the lover within you. Your life will be forever changed and you will be held in an angelic breath of love. Sensual Embrace eau de perfume is a sultry, sexy musk 100% natural fragrance that sizzles with intrique. This stunning, mysterious, seductive blend captures the essence of a sensuous embrace. A unisex parfum. Notes: citrus notes clementine, floral notes of Rose de Mai oil – the May rose of France, vintage jasmine, tuberose, orange blossoms, musky notes of ambrette seed, amber accord, smoky notes of tobacco, sensuous woody notes of smooth vintage Mysore sandalwood, dark patchouli, and others.
6. Timeless – It is an anointing oil with healing energy. Its purpose is to help you surrender.This incense, balsamic, and woody parfum contains vetiver, cassie, balsam fir, spikenard, frankincense, Egyptian damask rose, angelica, and others. Sixteen oils made their way into my bottle.
7. Venus Amber – There are 25 distinctly different essential oils and absolutes that comprise this natural perfume. It has a musky, spicy, amber accord. The soft powdery, dry down of the vanilla and benzoin gives way to the musky, ambrette seed and frankincense, cedarwood, cistus, and labdanum classic goodness. Bay rum plays with rosewood, sage, cinnamon, and cardamon…to create a spicy melange. 
The citrus notes of bergamot, blood orange, lemon,and yuzu add that extra lift, zing, and sparkle. The wonderfully sensuous jasmine and rose de mai accord play with your heart. The other special oils form a bond that holds it all together.  Be touched by the love of Venus.  A unisex fragrance.
8. Vert – Vert is an herbal scent created from herbs from Provence. Marjoram, lavender, cypress, Bulgarian damask rose otto, vanilla, green mandarin, cistus, angelica, black currant, verbena, grapefruit, cocoa, balsam, others. Provençal paradise, plus cocoa.
 
8 Warm for Winter sample pack $30.00.  That means you get 10 samples for $30.00!
