Pope Reviews: DemeterFragrance.com

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 27, 2014, 6:25 PM
Everyone who knows me can pretty much describe me as a perfume hound.  I have tons of it, thanks in part to my relationship with the son of a perfume shop owner.  (And yes, we obviously broke up, because anyone who has known me knows I'm the girlfriend of Puppetcancer.  That being said, however, Kurt and I have remained good friends since the breakup.  We were better off as buddies, you know?)  But the point of that was that I got a great deal of perfume from Kurt's dad, and I appreciate them like no one would believe.

One of my favorite fragrance companies is a little gang of close knit perfumers at DemeterFragrance.com.  They have simple, singular note fragrances (such as Lychee, Dark Chocolate, Lavender) as well as more complex ones ( think Elvira's Black Roses, Vamp and Zombie).  The whole point of Demeter's lineup is this; scent is our sense most powerfully tied to our memories.  Example being, if I smell warm leather, I instantly am reminded of my honey, the aforementioned Puppetcancer, who has a very pleasant natural scent that's a mix of vanilla, brown sugar and leather, and it's amazing, by the way.  I'm instantly comforted (and sometimes get, um, "other feelings") from those scents, alone or in any combination of the three, that remind me in milliseconds of the man I love.  That is how strongly tied my memory is to scent; even a hint of any of those aromas make my heart flutter like only a girl's in love can.

The other scent memory comes from my bestie, Crowmamma.  I bought her a bottle of Elvira's Black Roses from DemeterFragrance.com as a bonding thing; we're far apart, but we can smell the same, and something about that just brings us a little bit closer.  I smell Black Roses as well as another Demeter perfume, Lychee, the other bottle I gave her, and think of my dear friend and partner in crime...  and artwork.  Those are the scents my brain ties to Jericca, and when I wear Black Roses, I think of nothing else but her.  (One could argue I am always only thinking of her anyway, but hey, let's pretend in order to make a point.)

What scent is tied to me?  TONS, LOL!  I have so many bottles, mainly small sample sizes because I enjoy a good variety.  The ones I wear most frequently are Pistachio Ice Cream (as Pistachio pudding is my favorite treat on this Earth), Daffodil, Snow, Moonbeam, Cherry Cream and their new line, Musk Studio in Musks #7, #9 and #15.

One thing Demeter does VERY well is sweet fragrances, and I'm talking about food related sweets.  I have a small handful of full bottles, sample bottles and rollerball perfume oils of Dark Chocolate, Hershey's Kisses, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Junior Mints, Saltwater Taffy and Butterscotch, though I've misplaced the last one.  I love smelling sweet like that, the edible sort, and some might argue it's juvenile, but you can argue all you want, I am still spritzing the stuff on my pulse points and smelling good while you're busy coming up with your arguments.  :)

They have a handful of scent collections such as Musk Studio and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark inspired scents, the latter are all based on dark floral notes like Bulgarian Rose, Dracula Orchid, Davana Blossom, Red Poppy and Poisonous Belladonna.  The Elvira line is my favorite, I think, as I've always been a fan of hers as well as...  they're just so unique, I've never smelled anything like them in my thirty-one years here on Earth.  Furthermore, they are SO unique that I cannot properly describe them in such a way that you'd know what I was talking about.  These are scents you need to experience.  You can't be told about them or read about them.

They have a brand new fragrance, Aloe Vera, that I'm getting a sample sized half ounce bottle of tomorrow.  I'll let you know what I think of that addition to my Demeter collection tomorrow after I bust into that package.


God love you as much as I do, my Possums.  Don't forget to stop and smell the roses, and all the other beautiful fragrances that Demeter puts out.
