REFLECTIONS PARFUM by JOANNE BASSETT

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 08 May, 2011

                                              REFLECTIONS


             The Parfum of the Golden Sunsets

  The time from when the sun begins to the onset of total darkness becomes the most beautiful warm glow of light golden rays.


  In the twinkling of an eye, that effervescent glow of the sunset is gone and there is nothing anyone can do about it. You have only the memory to hold on to, but it is not tangible, but alas I know the perfect solution.


  It comes in an exquisite hand blown glass perfume bottle and inside there is natural perfume with 36% fragrance strength in an organic base of golden jojoba.


  The tint of this liquid gem of the ocean and the hand blown glass perfume bottle is to help replicate the colors of the sunset over the ocean, followed by majestic colors of pinks, reds, blues, purples and yellows merging into one reflection.


  REFLECTIONS PARFUM by JoAnne Bassett is a floral oriental fragrance that surrounds you with a flirtatious floral scent, but it adds a twist of fresh citrus to liven the moment.


  This LIMITED EDITION possesses some of the most exotic and most expensive ingredients such as centifolia rose otto, rare oud boronia, tuberose, Neroli (orange blossoms), vanilla, absolute vintage Mysore Sandalwood and other citrus and floral added.


  Hold the bottle up to the sunlight and see the magnificent golden color of REFLECTIONS PARFUM. It twinkles with determination and the scent glides onto the skin and holding it firmly that stays on for several hours.


  REFLECTIONS PARFUM is truly one of a kind. It is the fragrance that works with nature.


JoAnne Bassett
  I corresponded with JoAnne on more about REFLECTIONS PARFUM and she shared her thoughts with me in an EXCLUSIVE interview.






  INTERVIEW

1. JoAnne, what inspired you to create REFLECTIONS PARFUM?
 

It all started with the exquisite, hand blown glass bottle. I was inspired with the bottle.
2. The hand-blown bottle is a work of art! Why did you choose this type of
bottle to showcase
REFLECTIONS PARFUM?

The Reflections parfum bottle started with a sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
Living in Southern California we get gorgeous sunsets over the ocean. The
pinks, reds, blues, purples, and yellows merge together to become a
reflection on the ocean. So with the idea of a reflection of the sunset on
the water I created the parfum reflection.
3. REFLECTIONS PARFUM is to replicate a "sunset over the ocean". JoAnne is REFLECTIONS PARFUM about a moment, time or place that took place near the
ocean?

The bottle replicates a sunset over the ocean. The Reflections parfum is not about an event that took place near the ocean. The bottle is an exotic,
colorful piece of fine art. The bottle deserved an expensive, exclusive fragrance. My muse for creating the parfum was the enchanting bottle so it
had to hold a very exotic and beautiful fragrance. I
then created a natural parfum with boronia and agarwood and some of the most expensive and sought
after perfume ingredients. I designed a parfum that would be a perfect match with this fantastic, hand blown perfume bottle with dauber. 
Both elements were designed and created by master artisan.You can tell by the energy of the bottle and the parfum.
4. REFLECTIONS PARFUM is a Limited Edition, why is this?
A Limited Edition is necessary when creating parfums with ingredients like
rare agarwood, vintage Mysore sandalwood, and costly boronia. These are the
finest materials money can buy and at some point I will not have them
available to me. I also will run out of my supply of
vintage natural ingredients like my 10 year old jasmines, Bulgarian white rose otto, Mysore sandalwood, and others.
 
When you use all natural ingredients, essential
oils, absolutes, macerations, and tinctures of flowers
from your garden you
have to make them Limited Editions. When the material is no longer available then the edition is complete. I tincture roses, gardenias, citrus tree flowers, and other flowers from my garden to use in my Limited Editions and my Custom Bespoke Perfumes.
I am introducing another Limited Edition this year. It will launch this summer.

5. JoAnne, do you consider REFLECTIONS PARFUM as a spring scent for women?

It certainly can be a Spring and Summer scent.
 
Also, is this a day or evening scent?Because it has a 36% fragrance strength in an organic base of golden jojoba oil, I would wear it for evening.I believe that fragrance is a part of our wardrobe. They are to be worn daily and I do not say for women or men. When a person is drawn to wearing Reflections they should do so without question.

Thank you very much, JoAnne for your time and Congratulations on the launch of REFLECTIONS PARFUM!

 Thank you so much, Felicia

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
