DEMETER FRAGRANCE REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!!!




I am really excited about this review and giveaway. I even mentioned Demeter Fragrances in my profile random question! Demeter's fragrance library is extensive. Really extensive. Nearly every scent you can think of- they have it.


Scent has a strong connection with memory. My most recent experience with this was at a department store. I was in the cosmetic area and I smelled a familiar scent. It was almost like deja vu. I couldn't figure out where I knew this scent from. It was driving me nuts. Later that night at home, I could still recall that smell, even though I was away from it. Finally it came to me that it was the smell of a facial cleanser my Mother had used when I was very small. Memories I didn't even know I had came flooding back to me. I remembered what the bathroom looked like and that I was sitting on the floor watching my Mom scrub her face in the mirror. I even remember a little vase that sat by the sink. Ha! That smell triggered all of that - I had no idea I even remembered those things!
With scents like Birthday Cake, Bonfire, Christmas Tree, Crayon, Dandelion, Pipe Tobacco and for me the familiar smell of the incense of a Catholic Church - Holy Smoke. These are the singular scents that take your memories back to a certain place or time.

They generous people at Demeter gave me the privilege of trying three of their newest scents -

Mahogany:

A deep, rich, full bodied exotic wood scent, with a touch of spice.Pretty much what a man should smell like.


Hershey's Special Dark:

An absolutely sensual and indulgent chocolate fragrance. Deep, rich and exotic.


White Bouquet :

The beautiful scent of our White Bouquet was inspired by the softest and most delicate white flowers we could find.An utterly romantic white floral scent for anyone who likes the scent or memories created by freshly cut white flowers.



Demeter's fragrances are natural, they subscribe to the philosophy that says that their products should be as natural and as sustainable as possible. This means :


*No secondary packaging that you rip apart and then throw out
*No artificial colors
*No binders
*No emulsifiers


As you know - that's important to me :))


Now being the generous people that they are, they are offering another set of the three fragrances I tried, to give away to my readers. So, because I think more is better, I am going to have three winners.


WIN IT!!

You tell me which scent you'd like to try out of the three that I reviewed, and I'll pick a winner for each scent. How about that! This entry must be done first!

EXTRAS:

*Head over to Demeter Fragrance Library- browse through their selection of scents. There are over 200, but it's so much fun. Comment here on which scent you'd most like to try. It Will be tough!

*Tell me where they get their name sake from


*Follow my blog


* Blog it & leave the link


*Add my button to your side bar :))



Giveaway will end on April 2, at 11:59 pm EST. Winner will be selected using Random .org. I will email the winner & you will have 48 hours to reply back before I draw a new winner . Please remember to leave me your email address if it is not visible on your profile so that I can contact you if you win. Good luck to everyone :)))

I'd love to try "Baby Powder", it would remind me of when my children were babies..I love the scent of baby powder.

Although there really is nothing like the smell of a fresh can of "Play Doh", I can't believe they have a scent for it.

Demeter in Greek mythology, is the Goddess of grain and fertility, the pure. Nourisher of the youth and the green earth, the health-giving cycle of life and death, and preserver of marriage and the sacred law. In the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, dated to about the seventh century BC.[3] she is invoked as the "bringer of seasons", a subtle sign that she was worshipped long before she was made one of the Olympians.

I'd love to smell Bonfire!

Brooke said...

The Greek earth goddess par excellence, who brings forth the fruits of the earth, particularly the various grains. She taught mankind the art of sowing and ploughing so they could end their nomadic existence. As such, Demeter was also the goddess of planned society. She was very popular with the rural population. As a fertility goddess she is sometimes identified with Rhea and Gaia.
