One Way Ticket to Sweetsville with DEMETER
For the last few days I have been posting reviews of designer brand fragrances and I am thrilled to be jumping off that treadmill for a moment to tell you about some fragrances that are just plain and simple fun for the nose.
It is very easy to get sucked into the Demeter Fragrance Library. These two next fragrances are more of a curiosity than anything else. A fragrance worth talking about is one that creates a mood or triggers memories of places, events or people.
With Chocolate Covered Cherries, the trigger is instant. I am 9 or 10 at the local convenience store buying a Cherry Blossom (a chocolate covered cherry treat). It’s big, inviting and screaming to be bitten into. Next comes that sweet cherry juice that made a mess and finally the cherry reward inside. The accuracy of the scent is mesmerizing.
Now as a fragrance on an adult man…It’s interesting, but perhaps confusing as you might assume that this would be better suited to a young woman. I’ll say that it works as it could be taken as a sweet chocolate flavored tobacco, but you might not want to do that every day. I would also suggest that this will perform best in cold weather as we are naturally seeking warmth and sweetness.
The Caramel is also something I got out of sheer curiosity. And again was blown away by the direct flight to my childhood days eating caramel squares. It is unbelievably accurate!
Now as a fragrance for an adult man, this works considerably better since caramel is in the same space as oud, and to some extent; wood. This is rich, deep and warm. Again, a cold weather candidate.
Now here is the kicker. Because DEMETER fragrances are an exact and single scent, the door to layering presents itself. You can essentially create your own arrangement on the fly. A shot of caramel with 2 shots of oud and 1 of sweet tobacco for example.
The creative freedom being offered here is literally hours of fun! And all of that at prices that us little people can afford.
Get lost in the DEMETER Fragrance Library. A quick and easy way to put a smile on your face and those lucky enough to be around you.
