The Journey of Aromatic Journeys Has Ended


It has been a fun ride but the time has come to post a final farewell.  It has been a sweet, fragrant journey that at times was floral and others was more citrus and light. The archives will remain here but there will  not be any new posts.

My Natural Perfumes Blog  is where I will be posting updates and all new fragrance offerings. Please sign up to receive an email in your inbox or reader. I look forward to seeing you there!

Come and visit my JoAnne Bassett website to view any special monthly sales or new natural perfume workshops offered.

This photo is from May 15, 2003 in Beverly Hills for the American Heart Association charity event. I had a table selling JoAnne Bassett natural perfumes.

I have participated in my charity events with silent auctions and also with a table of my perfumes for sale. I am also available for consultations for Custom Couture Bespoke natural perfumes for the guests.

A few of the charities I have worked with are the American Heart Association, Del Mar Auxiliary “Hats off to Children”, Orange County Cancer Association, and the American Liver Foundation.

I have also participated in various churches, garden clubs, fundraisers, and private charity events. Send me an email if you would like me to participate.  A percentage of my perfume sales is donated to the cause.

JoAnne Bassett’s Intuitive Bespoke Natural Perfumes©

I have created Custom Bespoke Natural Perfumes for over 20 years. People are always asking me “How did you know that I love gardenia”? How did you know that I like ….fill in the blank.  It is because I am clairvoyant and I can tap into your energy and receive the information I need to make your perfume that you will love!  Yes I create beautiful custom perfumes that you will love.  This is true for men and women.


There are two ways I work : the first is I create a perfume that is purely for your enjoyment!  You love to wear it and feel very special doing so.  It is your signature scent…no one else on the planet has one like this.  It makes you feel confident and beautiful.  The second is I create a bespoke perfume that will help you transform, that can potentially ease any physical or emotional problems. It may not smell perfect to you but you are able to wear it… it will do what your body needs.  It may have more resins or woody smells than what you are used to. This perfume can be worn at night or under clothes and be working with your chemistry.
 
Generally the second perfume will work its magic and in six months or so I get a request for another custom perfume for them.  They are ready to move on to the next level.  Which could mean they are now ready for the perfume that makes them feel like a king or queen..not the prince or princess.  They have stepped up their game and have said yes! That is where I come in to create their next custom.  Usually the second custom will be what you love to wear on all levels. Order yours today!  You new life is waiting for you!  Go here now!

Natural Perfume - Descanso Gardens Rose Festival

Natural Perfume - Descanso Gardens Rose Festival near Los Angeles, California.

I went to the Rose Festival on Sunday, May 25. What a delightful event! Floral artist Alison Franchi and make-up artist Jennifer Aspinall turned a model into a living piece of art decorated with roses, body paint and jewels. An homage to the gardens at Versailles. What a fabulous job! This model would fit right in with my Royal Collection of natural perfumes.

I was so enchanted with the rose garden, the California native gardens, the tall oaks, the water falls, the rhodies and camelias blooming that I forgot to take photos. The natural perfume of the roses in the 80 degree afternoon sun was amazing. The ride on the train past koi ponds and wonderful large trees was fun. The Boddy house was also interesting and the hike through the forest to get there was great.

Create Your Own Perfume Workshop

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.
