These convenient, unbreakable metal atomizers are a great way to carry your fragrance with you. Natural Perfume Travel Sprayers go any where you want to go! These sprays have a glass bottle inside that can be refilled. Capacity of the glass bottle is 5 ml – 1/6 oz. These 5 ml sprayers are filled to 5 mls and they hold 6 mls. A 5 ml Gourmet Collection fragrance in a royal blue travel sprayer with royal blue organza bag is $20.00.
This collection like the Sacred Alchemy Collection is only available in my JoAnne Bassett ETSY store.
Natural fragrances are not like synthetic, commercial, department store fragrances. They will not last all day. You need to apply the fragrance to your skin or your clothing and re apply them as needed.
They can last from 2 hours to 8 hours or longer depending on the formula and your skin. For extreme self care I ask you to anoint yourself and reapply them. It is like giving yourself a blessing. The perfumes in organic jojoba oil have a higher concentration of the essential oils and absolutes so will last longer than the eau de perfume and eau de toilette in organic grape alcohol.
No synthetics, phthalates, parabens, isolates, or nature identicals.
They are cruelty free with no animal testing.

Why Natural Perfumes?
In the 90s when JoAnne Bassett was creating private label natural product lines for spas, she started formulating natural perfumes for spa owners. She realized that she was most attracted and impassioned by these adventures into this land of scents to heal and uplift.
"The smells sent my nose, brain, body and spirit soaring free," says JoAnne. It was during this time JoAnne learned how all-natural fragrances can be used as a sweet-smelling tool to reach people by tapping into Nature's power to enlighten and empower.
Later, JoAnne studied the ancient French art of handcrafted parfumerie. Using the finest essential oils, absolute essences and botanicals, she trained herself to formulate fine works of "fragrance art."
When available, JoAnne scavenges for wild and organic essences from all over the world. She never uses phthalates, synthetic aroma chemicals, nature identicals, isolates, artificial dyes, parabens, or petroleum products. JoAnne uses organic jojoba oil in her parfums and organic grape alcohol from wine grapes for the eau de toilettes, and eau de parfums. Fractionated coconut oil is also used.
JoAnne Bassett crafts her natural parfums in Dallas, Texas. She is passionate about her company using green products and sustainable materials, so she supports local farmers and distillers. JoAnne also uses refillable bottles and her sturdy, quality perfume boxes can also be reused and even kept as sacred heirlooms.
