Happy Bastille Day! Natural Perfume from my French and Royal Collection

July 14th, 2016 by

bastille-day-paris

Having French – Paris origins on my Father’s side..the Bassett name is a good reason for me to celebrate.  I used to go to Paris and look in the Paris phone book and see pages of Bassetts and the French spelling Basset. In my genealogy are French royalty with kings and queens going all the way back to Charlemagne.

Being in Paris for Bastille Day is really a fun thing to do.  The pomp and circumstance is amazing. The French really know how to put on a parade, fireworks, and wonderful French food is everywhere.  Traditionally they served aioli – a garlic mayonaise with bread to the towns people on Bastile Day.  It is a purge of parasites in the bodies using massive amounts of garlic.

1 oz bottles

After being in France I created the French Collection of all natural perfumes and my Royal Collection of French historic places. These collections offer individual perfume samples, 2 ml sample sprayers, 5 ml travel sprayers, 1 oz -30 ml atomizers of eau de parfums, and parfums in coffrets and a 8 ml French flacon.

Marie Antoinette eau de parfum is the scent I choose to wear today to celebrate. This perfume is one of her precious potions. A favorite of my clients.

A lush, spicy floriental – opens your heart chakra and turns on your sexy.

Oriental Floral – Notes: Neroli, Tuberose, vintage rare Bulgarian White Rose Otto, Vintage Jasmine Sambac, Frankincense Noir, Holy Basil, Labdanum, Champa, Lavender, Rhododendron, Ylang Ylang, and others

Have a fun Bastille Day!  I may just watch my movie “Marie Antoinette” again.  Beautiful scenes from the Palace of Versailles.

I also have a 20% off my whole ETSY shop until July 18. The Now price is already marked down 20%.  Please go there now and celebrate the savings.  My all natural perfumes have been compared to Guerlain perfumes from France back in the day.. the classic perfumes.

Perfumes Past.. Natural Perfumes Still Available

May 13th, 2016 by

MadamePompadourphoto&bottle

Madame Pompadour is a great lady.. she was a Mistress of a French King. Now she is a popular choice at JoAnne Bassett Natural Perfumes and a re order eau de parfum bottle for a number of my clients.  Her charm never gets old.  She is a floral oriental.  Her sensual vintage jasmine sambac, neroli, wonderful live gardenia flower infusion, champa, rare vintage Bulgarian white rose otto, make me swoon.  She is a spicy number and that is why the King adored her. With sweet vanilla, happy citrus and soft powdery vintage Mysore sandalwood she is a elegant choice. She is a rare treat and she is still available.

Another great seller is Marie Antoinette.  She was also loved and adored by a French King.  My clients have ordered the eau de parfum for years and it is still one of my favorites to wear.

A lush, spicy floriental that opens your heart chakra and turns on your sexy.

It has feel good neroli – orange blossoms from the bitter orange tree, sexy tuberose, heart opening vintage rare Bulgarian white rose otto, sensual indoles from vintage jasmine sambac, the flower of flowers ylang ylang.. an aphrodisiac brides love.. rhododendron, champa and other amazing oils to charm you.

Do you want to feel like a King’s mistress or a Queen?  I suggest you get yourself some of my exquisite vintage eau de parfums and see what magic you can create!

Respect Mother Earth on Earth Day!

April 22nd, 2016 by

In honor of Earth Day I am asking my readers to become more aware of how you reuse, recycle, and conserve our resources.

When I look at the packaging in a perfume business I cringe.  There are double boxes, the outer box which is the mailer and the inner box which is the beautiful one we throw away, the paper liners, the cellophane overwraps, the tissue, the bows, etc.

We hear over and over how packaging sells the perfume. When we buy the perfume the first thing we do is throw away the layers of packaging and usually just put the pretty bottle on our dresser. Some people save the box if it can be repurposed or if they prefer to have their fragrances all in boxes in a cabinet as a collection.

When I was looking to create more boxes for my collections I thought about my choices. I created a beautiful expensive gift box for my Le Voyage eau de toilette.

As I researched other brands I noticed that they are really almost all the same with different colors and logos. To set my line apart I chose boxes that could be reused.

My perfume boxes are gift boxes in the shape of books.  They are deep enough to store trinkets or other items.  They have a magnetic flap so the box will stay closed.  They are three sizes and house my parfums, eau de parfums, and Limited Edition parfums.  These beautiful boxes have gold foil and beautiful flower patterns with butterflies.  They are unique and also can be stacked or placed on a shelf like a book.  How original!

You can view my collections at this link:  http://joannebassett.com/collections

My Gift Boxes contain 1 oz of eau de parfum and come with a free 5 ml travel sprayer that can be refilled.  If you remove the paper filling you will see the beautiful designs in the bottom of the box. The box can be reused and repurposed. These are ways to reduce our paper waste and not contribute more garbage to the landfills.

I also grow flowers and harvest blossoms, and create tinctures of roses, gardenia, citrus blossoms and others for my Custom Perfumes.  These special tinctures and macerations are only used in my bespoke fragrances.  This is a way to use our bounty and share it with others.

With the New Year comes many changes…

After living in Southern California for 16 years this month, I decided to get an Astrocartography reading to see what area is the most beneficial for me to live.  To my surprise I discover that So Cal is not a beneficial place for me to be living overall.

In contrast a very good place for me to live is Dallas, Texas.  I have traveled there in the 1980’s and also to visit my Sister when she lived there. So I will be moving there December 31 to start the New Year in a better place.

So if you have been waiting to purchase that full bottle, hand blown glass perfume bottle with natural perfume or Custom Bespoke perfume …now is the perfect time. I am having a 25% off Moving Sale to reduce my inventory substantially.
