Ever caught a whiff of something & found yourself transported to another place? Fragrance invokes powerful emotions & nobody understands scent memories better than Demeter. I loved this brand in my youth, Demeter Atmosphere fragrances wafted throughout my home, I gloried in the incredible number of luxurious but affordable perfumes & colognes available in their extensive Fragrance library. Recently, I had the pleasure of rediscovering this iconic brand at the Boombox Network, Bloomers Party in NYC.
The lovely young women from Demeter set up a fragrance bar, we were invited to try the huge variety of perfumes in both spray & roll on form. After applying our scents we were invited to write down our fragrance memories & share them on the whiteboard. There was tons of excitement at the table! Some women excitedly sniffing & chatting, others standing quietly, eyes closed in rapture, transported back in time via scent to a special person or place.
Foodie that I am, I chose to try Birthday Cake, Demeter says this fragrance is ” chocolate cake with butter cream icing and pink icing flowers” At initial application ( you need to give a moment or two for the alcohol to dissipate) I detected the sugary sweetness of the icing, coupled with the richness of butter cream & glorious chocolate … oh my God, I smelled just like a delicious cake! Unlike other fragrances Demeter perfumes do not have top, middle & bottom notes, they are linear by design & express their full scent immediately. You won’t have to wait for hours to decide if a cologne is right for you.
I was so impressed with this company I contacted them upon my return home to Boston & had the pleasure of speaking at length with Blair, daughter of the company’s founder about Demeter philosophy & values, they believe that ” Scent Should Be Fun” & their mission “is to make the pleasure and luxury of fine fragrance, fun and easy to afford.” I would say they’ve succeeded marvelously! I look forward to working with this awesome brand to help all of you create scent memories this fall!
