The Demeter Fragrance Library

Among the smells I love the most, I would have to list; rain, movie theatre popcorn,my babys sweaty head ,the backstage of my highschool theatre,and sweet things being baked.Of all the senses ,the one that transports me to another place and time the fastest is the sense of smell. Summer Mimosa ,I am tree climbing in my childhood back yard.Watermelon,I am at the 4th of July in my grandmas backyard.Tar, I'm waiting in line for the log-flume ride at 6 Flags Over Texas.
There is such a place online for you to re-visit those childhood smells that take you back. The Demeter Fragrance Librarycan give you this time-machine experience. It is also the go to fragrance folk for that signature unseen style element.Grapefruit tea,Turpentine,Thunderstorm,Ginger Cookie,Laundromat,Caramel,Funeral home(what the heck must that smell like),and in a limited edition for its 50th anniversary ,Playdoh.Bannana Flambe is my present obsession,but for the Fall ,I'm wishing for Pumkin Pie and Mulled Cider.For those who wish to walk in the room and smell like NO other,this is the site for you to explore.

It seems cruel to have an online fragrance gallery when the internet is so inadequate in the olfactory department. I actually felt a craving for the scent of Play-Doh (although I don't know that I would want to smell like it myself).
You have the most fabulous vintage stuff - I love the figures and the clutch.

Recently I found a bottle of Liz Claiborne perfume at a yard sale for .25 cents. I don't use perfume now unless it is essential oil, but I still bought this bottle. I stuck it in my sock drawer. When I'm happy to take a stroll back down to my early 20's I just take the cap off and take a whiff.

The Demeter scents are amazing...I just had to have my family smell "dirt" and various others. They certainly capture the true smell, instead of the sickly sweet, fake smells often associated with items, such as watermelon (which is why I cannot stand watermelon candy...I find no resemblance to the original!).

This sounds amazing. I, like you, am very moved by smells.

Sadly, most man-made scents give me headaches. So I may have to pass on Demeter.
