Would You Wear Perfume that Smelled Like Chocolate?
Demeter Fragrance Library offers a wide variety of scents. But, some aren’t your everyday perfumes and colognes. Demeter offers fragrances that are inspired by real objects and experiences. Demeter Fragrance Library's fragrances include scents like flowers or fruit, and even ones that smell like America's favorite candies, such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or Jelly Belly’s Blueberry Muffin. Some even smell like dirt, lobster, or Play-Doh!
Demeter Fragrance Library recently sent us Play-Doh, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Jelly Belly’s Blueberry Muffin, Apple Pie, Vanilla Ice Cream and Jelly Belly’s Hot Fudge Sundae. We tried them out in this Demeter Fragrance Library product review. Let's just say we smelled rather delicious by the end of our review!
Since Demeter Fragrance Library sent us some wild scents, we decided to test the fun ones first.
- Play-Doh fragrance actually smelled just like Play-Doh! Our panel of moms loved the nostalgic scent, some noting that it reminded them of that all-too-familiar smell of when their kids are playing with Play-Doh.
- Vanilla Ice Cream fragrance was very strong, but did smell like vanilla with a hint of ice cream.
- Jelly Belly’s Hot Fudge Sundae fragrance smelled like chocolate, which reminded our moms of a hot summer day and a trip to the ice cream store.
- Jelly Belly’s Blueberry Muffin fragrance was a favorite amongst our panel of moms. The blueberry smell gave a fresh scent and the "muffiny" hint gave it a yummy aroma too.
- Apple Pie fragrance smelled like apple with a little cinnamon and nutmeg with a warming scent.
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups fragrance smelled wonderful and yummy as well! But, our panel of moms felt it didn’t smell exactly like its label. Our moms felt it smelled more like toffee or pancake syrup (which isn’t a bad thing).
Purchasing Demeter Fragrances
DemeterFragrance.com is the only place where interested buyers can purchase every scent. However, in the New York City area, there are about 30 Duane Reade pharmacy stores that carry 100 different Demeter scents, as well as 12 Walgreens throughout the country. But Mark Crames, CEO of Demeter who’s been running the company for 10 years, says those doors are expanding.
About Demeter Fragrance Library
Demeter Fragrances were introduced to consumers in 1996 and today, Crames says they launch a new fragrance almost every month. “You can mix, match or combine these scents right on the skin to create your own personalized, customized fragrance experience,” says Crames. “The original idea behind Demeter was to capture the smells of nature and the garden. The name itself, Demeter, is taken from the Greek Goddess of Agriculture, and when we launched, the first three fragrances were Dirt, Tomato and Grass,” he says.
Demeter Fragrance Library gets our stamp of approval. What do you think of these fragrances? Would you wear any of these unique scents by Demeter Fragrance Library?
