I tested 4 fragrances from Demeter over the weekend. I have no detailed reviews here, as there is only so much you can say — Demeter specializes in capturing a particular smell, and while they are frequently successful, these are not complex perfumes. Here is what I tried:
Grass: Like many of the fragrances in the line, it is short-lived on the skin, but for the time that it lasts, it smells pretty much like a freshly mown lawn. It is perhaps a little sweeter…this must have been a lawn with a few flowers here and there, or perhaps it is a particular kind of sweet grass.
Greenhouse: Starts a little sweet, but fades to a pretty floral that also captures the rest of the greenhouse: green leaves, humidity, soil. Nicely done, and lasted considerably longer than the others listed here.
Christmas Tree: This one was particularly fleeting, but while it lasted, it smelled just like the sap oozing from a freshly cut pine tree.
Condensed Milk: I wish I had a tin of condensed milk in the house to compare to this fragrance. It is a very sweet milky scent, but it also smells like eggs — in fact, it smells very much like a flan I used to make back in the day when I used to cook. This is very much a foody-comfort fragrance.
Demeter fragrances are presented in relatively simple packaging. They are very reasonably priced; most of the fragrances are $18 for an ounce of cologne. They can be found at Ulta or Sephora, and a google search will probably turn up other possibilities as well.
