Hello to everyone out there! I hope your days are filled with good cheer, a full spirit and magical moments this Holiday Season!
Thanksgiving is soon upon us and this fine year is coming to a close. I want to say a few things and remind everyone about shipping dates , domestic and international.
I am wishing a wonderful Thanksgiving to all of our Family, Friends and Clients from Angel Blue Perfume!
A sincere thank you to all who have supported me in my dream to create some of the finest “Victorian inspired & holistic perfumes and colognes on the market today! I am truly grateful beyond words.
It has been a fine year with many domestic and international sales. I have had the good fortune to sell my fine perfume in several independent retailers, too! With this being said, I have been extremely busy, learning so much in the laboratory. I have quite a few new scents in the works and will be excited to unveil them in 2018, including our very own harvested and distilled honeysuckle.
I love the Winter Season and the spirit of love, gratitude, baking, gift giving, joy and time spent with Family and Friends! To me, it does not get better than that.
Decorating my home with a tree, garland for the fireplace mantel, the lighting of candles, with their wishes and prayers, wrapping gifts for my loved ones and baking is pure heaven. I love to see the joy and smiles we all give to one another when we give of our time.
Be good, be kind to yourself and to others and remember to create magic and joy by decorating your place with love and cheer!!

“I hope each and everyone of you enjoy this Season with Family and loved ones near! Raise a glass of cheer, to you, yours and neighbors far and dear…”
Autumn is perfect for Angel Blue Perfume; holistic, sensual, plant essence perfume and cologne that you can enjoy without toxins and chemicals!
Gorgeous scent creations and names such as Antique Slip, Summer Midnights, Lady Scarlett, Angel Blue, WildChild County, DragonSlayer and more!
Each scent is ‘Victorian’ inspired and reveals an intimate story upon the skin of its bearer!
The days set slow in Early Town where shadows arrange in mysterious shapes under hazy trees of late summer.
I walk along a dry path; a dusting of cinnamon shimmer rises and settles in a traveling breeze across the field of milkweed and yarrow.
The path I travel finds its place along Gum Creek Cemetery and the house of the old carnival lady.
Time seems limpid and very still at the old wooden house. Her treasures are all within…the carnival stories told over again on porch swings during hot summer nights, only when children are dreaming. The tarnished charms, intimate letters wrapped in faded ribbon and dried lavender, dead flowers from a long ago lover, carnival posters, moth eaten lace dress slips and secrets….
These things live high in her house among the attic walls.
On moon bright midnights, broken shards of attic window glass shine on wood board floor, like geometric shaped jewels from a strange faraway place.
When the storms come dressed with the “whistling winds “as the old lady calls them, they will rattle the carnival parchment posters from yesteryear.
This sound reminds me of the frantic dying moth stuck inside a small wooden box.
I smile and ask her for a story that was new once, long moments ago.
She speaks to me “The secrets are not for sharing, they are for finding.”
We share…only yarrow tea and moments of silence….
One autumn afternoon, when the yarrow is long and milky white in the field, illumined by a hot sun, I will return to the path past Gum Creek Cemetery, all shadows and silent wildflowers…and settle upon the vine covered porch of the old carnival woman’s house.
An old envelope, showing signs of dust and time I find as I enter through the door, upon the first step of the stairs. Small and neat are the words “For You My Child, Seeker of Secrets” and inside was a clean paper and pen with a small note attached at the top…
“We are receivers of this presence, we are like secrets finding, unfolding unto the light.
The manifested thought is our creation alone. Guide it; nurture it from a place of true wonderment…”
Autumn,… well it has always been the season dearest to my heart when it came to creating, writing, painting or doing just about anything in the great outdoors!
I love the rich scents that evoke the Autumn season, such as wood smoke, hot chocolate, coffee, caramel apples, cinnamon pastries, pumpkin bread, black walnuts, anise and clove. There are so many special scents that inspire me and my perfume creations at Angel Blue!
I believe every person has wonderful memories from childhood that they can relate to a particular scent or occasion.
Enjoy the moments, large and small whatever they may be…for they are yours alone-

“My dream has been to create something truly special, distinctive and lovely from nature… the scent, that when adorned, would evoke the story and mood of the carefully selected notes and essences that were chosen for each artisan crafted perfume and cologne.
I believe in the power of weaving a story out of nature’s own roots, flowers, leaves, wood, spices and fruits…”
I am Tommie Flannery Baskis and I love to create a story, mood and memories with wild crafted, natural and distilled oil, root, leaf, flower and spice essences to bring you truly distinctive, holistic and elegant scents that are the dreams of “Angel Blue Perfume” and its many fragrant note combinations.
As a child I had a fascination with the trees, edible wild plants and flowers I would find on my woodland journeys and camping trips. In my time, my Father taught me about “growing things” and I took it upon myself to research and study the plants I would find in the forest and countryside.
Through the years, my love and admiration grew for the plant, resin, spice and wood properties that made up essential oils and essences. Angel Blue started to evolve from my dreams into a successful reality!
I am excited to share our newest line of natural perfume and cologne! I am proud to offer you some of the finest choices in perfume from natural, wild crafted plant essences and oils without petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, mineral oil, sulfates, parabens and phthalates.

“He would be able to create a scent that was not merely human, but super human, an angels scent, so indescribably good and vital that who ever smelt it would be enchanted and with his whole heart would have to love him.” ― Patrick Süskind
“Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.” –Patrick Suskind
“The Power of Olfaction from oil, root, leaf, flower and spice plant essence energy are brought forth from their depths to radiate a pure and sensual memory that shines so bright” ___Tommie Flannery Baskis
“When nothing else subsists from the past, after the people are dead, after the things are broken and scattered…the smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, like souls…bearing resiliently, on tiny and almost impalpable drops of their essence, the immense edifice of memory” —Marcel Proust
― “I can’t over-emphasize how important an exquisite perfume is, to be wrapped and cradled in an enchanting scent upon your skin is a magic all on its own! The notes in that precious liquid will remind you that you love yourself and will tell other people that they ought to love you because you know that you’re worth it. The love affair created by a good perfume between you and other people, you and nature, you and yourself, you and your memories and anticipations and hopes and dreams; it is all too beautiful a thing!”
― C. JoyBell C.
Experience holistic and sensual Angel Blue Perfume that is ‘Victorian’ inspired, true plant essence perfume and cologne without toxins, chemicals and aldehydes.
Late Summer at Dripping Springs
Late Summer days linger in hazy dreams before the door of Autumn. I find in Dripping Springs an old forgotten rose bush by the white clapboard home, abandoned many, many summers ago.
The rotten bird house still clings to a post at the Pickett cemetery where many children went to dreamin’, laughing and sleepin’ in another place and time.
Wind moves through the dry poke weed, whistling a tune that sounds like flames cracking.
Poke berries, make the prettiest stain…for my aged gingham dress
Deepest magenta, I imagine, will stain my hands
Barn, gone to the trees, sees no one now…not even secret lovers
Hay bales, heavy and sweet smelling, sit fat awaiting the autumn damp and mice.
Summer will leave soon…it will find its way back here again after cold winter moons grow tired.
