Serendipity is a perfume in JoAnne Bassett’s More Life Collection, a line of all-natural parfums.
Serendipity opens with a hay-like rose and sliced cucumbers. With time I get a spicy neroli and mimosa that’s almost salty – French florals touched by sea. The dry-down is warm with vanilla and incense woods. Serendipity starts out bright and dries down to something more sultry or like “evening” wear.
Serendipity is one of those fragrances that needs some heat. I’m not talking about warm weather necessarily, but it needs to be on skin that “runs warmer” than mine. On a warm day on my skin, it blooms. I prefer wearing it on a warm day. *I’m sampling the parfum oil not the EDP.
Notes listed include Rose de Mai, tuberose, cassie, cardamom, tangerine, neroli, vanilla, balsam wood, frankincense, agarwood, and sandalwood. Launched 2012. PERFUMER – JoAnne Bassett
Give Serendipity a try if you like balsamic florals. Or if you like perfumes like Ayala Moriel Les Nuages de Joie Jaune, L’Occitane Eau d’Azur, Aftelier Honey Blossom and/or Roxana Illuminated Perfumes Gracing the Dawn . I perceive this to be unisex. It does smell natural so I think you need to be a fan of naturals to like this one.
Serendipity is a parfum so it wears closely to the skin. Being an all-natural perfume, it has below average longevity for a parfum.
The 1 oz EDP retails for $190 at JoAnne Bassett. There are parfums in handmade art bottles (pictured) and prices vary. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – French seaside floral – from day to night – like French Riviera in the 20’s. Like the rest of the JoAnne Bassett line, worth trying if you like naturals.
