I am so excited to share with you my reactions to DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY ~ Simple, Subtle, Singular Scents, Each Day, Everywhere You are living your life, going about your daily routine, wherever that daily path takes you. Whether it is sitting in an office, or walking your dog, or perhaps running errands, as we go about our daily business we encounter and experience sounds and scents that evoke and awake our senses. So what if I told you there is a company that has bottled up fragrances that compliment those scents that at some point in our daily lives we have enjoyed and buried in our memories and they have brought those scents to life again for us in the form of fragrance!! Over 250 of them to be exact! Now that I have your attention, let me introduce this most innovative and amazing company to you!!


Grass. Mojito. Angel Food… A little Sex on the Beach. Demeter’s true-to-life fragrances excite the senses and stir up great memories. One of the most innovative and imaginative fragrance brands available, Demeter’s amazing ability to capture the familiar scents of everyday experiences provides a fresh approach and perspective to fragrance. Demeter - the alternative… a true treat for your senses. Mix them. Match them. Enjoy them. A Philosophy of Scent Expanding the accessibility and daily usage of fragrance in and for everyday living is the core mission of the Demeter Fragrance Library. At Demeter, we believe that single note and single experience fragrances encourage everyday use. A person’s fragrance “wardrobe” should include more than just designer or classic perfumes. Having a fragrance wardrobe of just designer perfumes is like having a wardrobe of nothing but evening clothes - beautiful but not what you might want for everyday life. You need the comfortable clothes as well. We Believe Scent Should Be Fun Our mission is to make the pleasure and luxury of fine fragrance, fun and easy to afford. Fragrance should make you smile every time you smell it. It should mean something special to you. Scent can make you remember what you like best and take you places you’d rather be no matter where you are or what’s happening around you. Demeter Fragrance Library Recreates Memories We create scents that are drawn from memories. Demeter Fragrance Library, the first company to recognize scent as your memory’s best friend, stands out from the designer fragrance crowd. We bottle down-to-earth scents that evoke pleasant memories and experiences of everyday life. Demeter Fragrances are Linear While not all Demeter Fragrance Library fragrances are single note or accords, they are all linear in their construction. Demeter fragrances do not have the traditional top, middle and bottom note pyramid associated with designer or prestige fragrances. Our fragrances express their nature directly and immediately, and do not change over time.


The  DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY  consists of over 250 fragrances inspired by everyday objects and experiences, how amazing is that! They are the olfactory version of "stopping to smell the roses". This concept is so innovative to me! They isolate and highlight the beautiful scents that surround us every day, creating wearable formats of them. It is a unique perspective, both because they are able to find beautiful scents in the everyday, and because choosing a DEMETER fragrance is a personal choice that is all about the wearer, not an expression of the designer.

I am very aware of my carbon footprint as I am sure many of you are as well.  I love the fact that the DEMETER FRAGRANCES ARE:


- Alcohol naturally fermented from corn

- NO artificial colors

- NO phthalates

- NO extra packaging to discard

The folks over at THE DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY were gracious enought to send me four of their lovely fragrances to review. 

Price: 1 fl oz. Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray $20 {Other sizes and Variations are available}

Description: Experience paradise. Fresh from the vine, Dragon Fruit is created with leafy green notes intertwined with juicy Dragon Fruit, citrus zest and soft floral and wood hints. Dazzling and appealing, Dragon Fruit from Demeter, is an interesting fruit and a wonderful fragrance.

Price: 1 fl oz. Cologne Spray $20 {Other sizes and Variations are available}

A fascinating and unique "foody floral" that opens with Vanilla and Chocolate, then combines with green leaves, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Amber and precious Woods, Demeter’s Moonbeam captures the dual nature of the moonbeam, reflecting elements of both the innocence of light and the passion of night. Inspired by the poetry of Shelley, Moonbeam in a study in the contrasts between light and dark: See! the mountains kiss high heaven, And the waves clasp one another; No sister flower would be forgiven, If it disdained it's brother; And the sunlight clasps the earth, And the moonbeams kiss the sea;-- What are all these kissings worth, If thou kiss not me? Love's Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1803-1822)

Price: 1 fl oz. Cologne Spray $20 {Other sizes and Variations are available}

Black Ginger is a rare variation on Ginger with black leaves so shiny and smooth that they appear lacquered. Demeter's Black Ginger is an invigorating spicy ginger scent, with touches of eastern spice and ginger flowers. It is unique and unusual, in a manner that is classically Demeter.

BLUE AGAVE {Will be available on the website soon!}
Price: 1 fl oz. Cologne Spray $20 {Other sizes and Variations are available}
Refreshing, sensual and sparkling, our Blue Agave is enlivened with dewy aloe and crisp orange notes making an unexpected and surprisingly harmonious scent.  Very fresh and uplifting.  The Blue Agave cactus thrives in the volcanic soils of Southern Mexico and is best recognized as the plant from which Tequila is made.
The four fragrances I tried were all fresh, invigorating, deliciously lucious to the senses,and for me, truly captured the essence of the fragrance they were representing.  Each one was truly unique and paid tribute to their subject.  I received compliments each and every time I wore one of the scents out.  I found myself wanting to respray each scent throughout the day, not only to re-kindle the aroma, but also to uplift myself, because that is my reaction to all the fragrances, they uplift my spirits and put me in that happy mode!
I also had some fun combining the scents together, and pretty much mixed and matched each scent at one time or another with each other.  I love the fact that you can blend the fragrances together to create your own unique scents, how cool is that?!
The DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY website is so fun to browse around.  You can visit there everyday and I guarantee each time you do you will discover something new, learn about a new scent, and will be reminded of great memories of your past through the names of each fragrance.
This concludes my review.
A very special THANK YOU to the folks over at DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY for providing me with the samples to use for my review.
