Luxury Meets Charity… Custom, Rare and Limited Edition Perfumes for A CAUSE

December 2nd, 2013 by

JoAnne teaching Ketel One Society workshop1

It’s that time of the year for holiday sales and as a Luxury Custom Intuitive Perfumer, I NEVER offer my perfumes on sale because if you’re a luxury shopper, you know that luxury items never go on sale. When my book “Sacred Scents” hit #1 Amazon best-seller a couple of months ago, the demand for my perfumes and my private workshops were at an all time high!

However, for this holiday season I have decided to make a special offer for my Custom Intuitive Perfumes. This is the FIRST TIME I am doing this because now I have a very good reason to do so.

My good friend Susan Ordona’s home town of Abuyog was devastated with the typhoon in the Philippines. Because of Susan’s cause I want my perfume to reach the hands of as many people as possible because my perfumes – and my loving, positive, intuitive and energetic intentions and artistry infused in them – have been known to transform the lives of so many people. There is a reason why royalty from all over the world as well as Hollywood celebrities and global thought leaders, come to me to create their very own perfumes. They feel absolutely supported, guided and empowered when they wear it. Though my high profile clients have requested me to keep their names in strict confidence, there are some who just become my raving advocates.

Typhoon Haiyan

Emma Tiebens, a powerful lady – Best-selling Author, Speaker and Success Mentor, Inspirational Leader, wife and mother, is one of my favorite success stories. A year ago, I created a Custom Perfume for her as in her own words she “needed more confidence, clarity and empowerment”. Within months of wearing her perfume, she was able to increase what she’s asking for- her programs and services and she started attracting luxury clients who were literally begging to invest in her. She was also able to write her best-selling book in record time and she keeps in touch with me to share her quantum leap milestones with me. She absolutely feels unstoppable! You can Click Here  to watch her video and see other testimonials from people like her.

The potential for my perfume is so astounding! You’ll meet clients who come to me from all walks of life, women and men who are ready for a change. I create perfumes for housewives who want to be more empowered and find more purpose in their lives. Divorced men who are ready for embracing the next chapter in their lives. Entrepreneurs needing a financial breakthrough in their business and even C-Level Executives, Presidents and CEOs looking for more success with significance in their lives. Great opportunities often come to my clients after wearing their Custom Intuitive Perfume. I just recently received this quick Facebook Private Mail from a highly successful high-profile male client:

“Perfume is working – making great gains.”

Testimonial-“JoAnne is without parallel as a designer of couture fragrances. She has the ability to define the most personal attributes of her client and somehow place them in a bottle. She does this with a genuineness, warmth, integrity and style that makes the entire experience a dream. If ever one desired to do something amazing and unique, having JoAnne create a custom fragrance would be it.”  Michael K. B

So, back to the big reason for my decision to do this. I am donating 20% of ALL sales from now until Christmas, Dec. 25, 2013 to my friend Susan’s cause. If you’ve been wanting to donate to this huge devastation in the Philippines, this is your chance to do so and by doing so, you could literally be transforming your life as well.

Again, I NEVER discount my luxury goods and probably never will. This is truly one of the rare opportunities that you will get to have your very own Luxury Custom Perfume – made just for you with your highest and best intentions in mind. I just started a new relationship with some powerful royal families in the Middle East, Europe and Hollywood celebrities and I know the demand will lead me to raising my prices again. With the price of rare and royal oils and the increasing demand for them, chances are I will not offer these prices again so I encourage you to act now.

Below are the perfumes that I have on sale as well as specific “Buy Now Buttons” you won’t find if you order in other pages of my website. If you need more clarification and have specific questions, please feel free to send me an email at and I will do my best to get back with you. I expect this to be a frenzy as I know many people have been asking me for discounts in the past and now they have the opportunity to own their own Luxury Custom Perfume by JoAnne Bassett.

Gold Custom Couture Parfum: A custom-made ½ oz. (15 ml) parfum  and a hand-blown glass bottle in a gold foil box with creamy white silk pillow. Rare, precious,  and vintage essential oils and absolutes are the raw materials used.

Holiday Perfume Sale for A Cause – Typhoon Haiyan Relief Effort

November 22nd, 2013 by


“I was talking to my good friend Emma Tiebens about the devastation in the Philippines and I wondered how I could make a difference. Then I remembered my good friend Susan Ordona  has been so amazing at rallying up people to help her devastated hometown. The result is my “Holiday Perfume Sale for A Cause”.

My Le Voyage eau de toilette and perfume came to mind.  Le Voyage means the journey in French.  I see this as the journey of  the people in the Philippines. I see the perfume as symbolic of hope and rebuilding.  LeVoyage eau de toilette and parfum will be on a Holiday Sale.  20% of the proceeds of Le Voyage sales, all natural perfumes and all offerings on my JoAnne Bassett website  until Christmas will go towards Susan Ordonas’s cause…Click here to buy Le Voyage!

This is a heartfelt message from my good friend Susan Ordona:

A few days ago, one of the strongest typhoon in recorded history hit and devastated the province of Leyte.
As the big relief organizations are not able to reach Abuyog yet, the Abuyognons from Manila, USA and other countries have taken it upon ourselves to help out as much as we can with the limited resources we have. Without food, water, medicines and basic necessities, our town people are in a very tough survival situation.
We have to do something with utmost urgency as lives are at stake.

The generosity and kindness of the Abuyognons and friends are so evident when everyone just gives cash and checks so our groups in the Philippines could start buying supplies and hand deliver these to the people of Abuyog.

It is a big challenge to get those supplies to our town because of the road conditions, some are non-existent and some are barely passable and of course the dangers along the way. Even with those hurdles, the determination to get to Abuyog is there.

I have been receiving private messages and telephone calls from people wanting to help and donate, so I created this site to make it easier for people to do so. This is also for others who want to donate to our cause, no amount is too little…every little bit helps.

100% of all your donations will go to the people of Abuyog….for their immediate needs and beyond that….the rebuilding process as well.

Typhoon Haiyan

More from Susan Ordona:

This devastation of Tacloban is horrible. My hometown is about 50 miles south of Tacloban and was also affected along with the other towns along the road way. Using hashtag #Tacloban #Abuyog #TyphoonHaiyan really helped us get a streamline of information about a those keywords with the hashtags.

Scent-ual Paris by JoAnne Bassett

November 5th, 2013 by

from hotel window


Going to Paris for business and pleasure recently was a great idea.  October is off season and most of the tourists are gone. Looking out my window I am reminded I am in Paris. I love the architecture and the quaint neighborhoods.  Not fond of looking straight down to the street although staying on the top floors is the best for views.  The smells of the neighborhood consisted of fresh bagettes, cigarettes, rain, dry fall leaves, and dog doo on the sidewalk. Fresh caffe au lait was a welcome smell in the early hours.

Saint Chapelle



saint chapelle (2)

Sainte Chapelle is a great example of High Gothic architecture.  This chapel was built between 1242-1248 in accordance of the wishes of King Louis IX.  It was built to house the relics of the Passion of Christ.  It has a splendid upper chapel that was used for the royals and a lower chapel that is also remarkable.  The photo is taken in the upper chapel with amazing 15 stained glass windows that tell “stories”.  This chapel was a part of the Palais de la Cite which was the residence of the royals from the 10th to the 14th centuries.  This chapel is being restored so the smells were of dust and scaffolding, metal and paint smells.




Napoleon apt Louvre

The line at the Louvre museum on Sunday morning was not as long as I thought it may be for this popular day.  It was a cool windy overcast day so it was a perfect day for the Louvre.  You can easily spend one whole day here.  I especially love the old masters paintings and the Napoleon III apartments.  This is a room from Napoleon III’s apartment.  Love the chandelier and the gold gild on the walls, doors, and every surface imaginable.  Very impressive when you are standing in this luxury.  The smells at the Louvre consisted of old, dusty, patina finishes, tapestry, and worn leather.



I also went to the Palace of Versailles, boutiques, perfume boutiques, the Tuileries Gardens in all of their fall splendor, and many rues too many to name. This statue of Napoleon on his horse is at the entrance to the Palace of Versailles.  The Metro and sidewalk cafes contain many smells of  cheese, meat, wine, caffe, and chocolate.  Sweet tarts and pastries were everywhere. Laduree macaroons tempted me more than once.  If I erased the cigarette, cigar smoke and the overheated people in the Metro trains…it would be a pleasant experience.  The smells of rain approaching and leaves falling added to the ambience.

Years ago I created the French Collection and Royal Collection after having been in France.  I feel a new collection coming in! Stay tuned!

My personal facebook page has more photos and some videos I took with my iphone.  Enjoy!
