Have you ever wanted to smell like Play-Doh, Dirt, or a Funeral Home? Ok, me neither, but this really weird/cool fragrance company called Demeter Fragrance makes all of those scents, and dozens more—some are delicious and some are downright bizarre, but most of them are uncanny in how spot-on they are.
There’s cotton candy, fresh laundry, and basil. There’s condensed milk, black pepper, celery, and “clean windows.” I could go on, but you might want to just check out the website for yourself. Let’s just say, there’s a scent for everyone. The best thing about Demeter is that it’s affordable, so you can buy a couple of strange or “once in a while” scents and it’s not a big deal. The other cool thing about them is how they’ve managed to A) come up with some of the strangest scent ideas ever, and B) make them so realistic that they will take you down a memory rabbit hole like you wouldn’t believe. The Play-Doh scent, for example? You’re suddenly five years old again. Fresh Hay, Bonfire, and Christmas Tree might also bring back fun memories….there are also a lot of alcohol-based scents too, incase you want to smell like bourbon, a margarita, or champagne.
For my inaugural purchase, I went with Pumpkin Pie (because of course; I am one of those people who likes to smell like dessert, don’t judge me) and one called Prickly Pear, which is more mild, not so sweet, and definitely smells like pear. It’s cool, different, but not as weird as say, the Dirt-scented one I could’ve bought.
Whether this company totally grosses you out or not, you have to give it to them: most companies market based on the idea that they’re “different and unique” when they usually aren’t. Demeter definitely is.
