Recently, Canadian Beauty Bloggers got an opportunity to work with Demeter to share our scent memory and experiment with fragrance blending.
Demeter focuses on making single note fragrances that you can blend together to create your customized scent. They also believe that scent evokes some of the strongest memories and I can not agree more!
With the fall/holiday season, I thought Pumpkin Pie would be a fitting choice. Now, I don't talk about my personal life too much on the blog, but I actually just became a Canadian citizen this summer after living here for 15 years! It made me reminisce about my first year in Canada and learning about a weird new holiday-Halloween .
The smell reminds me of going to Superstore to look at all the spooky decorations and the Jack'o'Lanterns outside everyone's house. I recall making Halloween crafts in elementary school and knocking on doors Trick o Treating.
The two scents paired with Pumpkin Pie are Cranberry and Golden Delicious. I'll have a brief description of each scent down below.
Cranberry: Light, sweet and reminds me of Sprite in a funny way.
Pumpkin Pie: Starts off smelling like cinnamon hearts but it melts down to a woodsy smell that will suddenly remind you of a good pumpkin pie.
Golden Delicious: Sparkling, fruity and smells exactly like when you've taken a bite out of a golden delicious apple.
To help with the mixing and creating our perfect scent, Demeter sent three additional scents that are picked by the founder which has scent memory for him.
Rice Paddy: This reminds me of bamboo shoots and the countryside in Bali. It is woodsy but also sweet.
Mountain Air: It is a classic scent for a men's cologne: refreshing and sporty
Vanilla Cake Batter: If you are a fan of sweets, you'll like this one! This is too much for me to wear my body but would imagine it being a great room spray in the kitchen.
I've been enjoying pairing Mountain Air with one of the sweeter scents like Pumpkin Pie and Cranberry. The refreshing smell helps to tone down the sweetness and makes it more wearable. But honestly, I've been enjoying spraying all 6 into one room and surprising my nose with a party of scents.
The fragrance is quite light and only lasts about 2 hours on me. However, the scents are so unique that you are bound to find one that brings you back to childhood. Each bottle is 30mL and retails for $20 online at www.DemeterFragrance.com and for $15 at Superstore.
