July 27th, 2014 by

Blooming Gardenia flowers at JoAnne Bassett’s patio means, I will be creating gardenia tincture in organic grape alcohol from wine grapes for eau de perfumes, gardenia infusion and maceration into organic jojoba oil for natural perfumes, and gardenia powder enfleurage into body powder.  It is so fragrant when I walk out onto the deck with the creamy smell of gardenia.  I have several varieties and some of them are brand new plants.

One of my natural botanical fragrances I use the gardenia in is Madame Pompadour from the Royal Collection.

It is available in this 5 ml travel sprayer that is great for your pocket, purse, brief case or desk.  The 1 oz spray bottle is great for the boudoir.

Happy Bastille Day! Natural Perfume from my Royal Collection

July 14th, 2014 by

Bastille day

With a name like JoAnne Bassett it is not hard to imagine that I am a Francophile with French origins in Paris.

In my genealogy are French royalty with kings and queens going all the way back to Charlemagne.

 

Today for my scent of the day I was reaching for Marie Antoinette eau de parfum

MarieAntoinettephoto&bottle

On second thought I felt this was not the day to wear it..Even though she was their Queen she was executed.

I chose the exquisite Madame Pompadour eau de parfum from my Royal Collection

It is an enchanting, costly, parfum with many precious floral notes.

Notes: Fresh Gardenia flower infusion, Neroli, Champa, rare Bulgarian Alba Rose Otto, Vintage Jasmine Sambac, Clementine, Vanilla, Wild Verbena, Vintage Mysore Sandalwood, and others. 39 magnificent natural oils in this precious fragrance

Celebrate with aioli and baguettes…and cleanse your system…pour a good French wine and toast to all things French.  Sante!

Create Your Own Perfume Workshop

May 15th, 2014 by

L Solomon  5

It was a great time at Lauren Solomon’s birthday party in Newport Beach, California.  Last night there were 18 guests that had the experience of food, fashion, fragrance, and fun.

"Create Your Own Perfume" workshop

During my “Create Your Own Perfume” Workshop everyone was able to learn about the top, middle, and base notes.   I led an “Aromatic Journey” with the essential oils, absolutes, and accords and explained how long they last on the body and the attributes of the oils. Then everyone went into a creative mode and  designed their own natural perfume.

A festive evening ended with many smiles and laughter filling the room.  

I am available for birthday parties, fund raisers, corporate events, bridal parties, etc. Women and men enjoy the experience of mixing their own fragrances. Please call or send an email to inquire for pricing and availability.
