    Default Joanne Bassett Leather Collection - Spanish, English, Russian, Tuscan, Arabian

    Some of these sound pretty interesting, $20 for a 1ml sampler of all five:

    "natural perfumes in a base of organic golden jojoba oil and eau de perfumes are in organic grape alcohol from wine grapes."

    But the spray prices are high! $190 for 1 oz? Does anyone have experience with her line? Shes local, Ill have to check these out in person...

    I must say that "leather" and "natural" sounds dubious. But then in the description of English leather there's birch tar, so if she gives the finger to IFRA and uses the real stuff, it could be interesting.

    I tried all her Royal Alchemy line which are all based on Frankincense. They smell nice, obvious quality ingredients but they are all missing that tying dot that rounds up a composition. I know with naturals it's usually an open field with no top, middle or base, but still, they seemed "unfinished" to me.

    She is also an obvious fan of citruses (Orange, blood orange, Yuzu). I mean each one of the Royal alchemy line has a dominant citrus accord one way or another, if not as a top note then in the background, swirling around somewhere in the composition.

    Overall i would say i was honestly neutral, more leaning to underwhelmed with her scents.
    Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....

    Have yet to try any from this house.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
