What scents always remind you of spring? For me it tends to be more nature-based fragrances & that’s where Demeter Fragrance Library really thrives in my opinion. Demeter specializes in simple, singular scents so many of them are tied to specific memories. Today I wanted to share with you some of my personal favorites for spring!Because scents are so closely tied to memories they often evoke certain feelings or recall. When I think of spring I tend to pull out some specific notes found in most fragrances but Demeter really covers the entire spectrum!
Demeter Rain– Scattered showers always make me think of spring! In California we so rarely had any change in weather that rain was always pretty fun! This fragrance really embodies that & for me makes me think of wet cement & dirt which I love.
Demeter Orchid– For those that don’t know, orchids are my favorite flower! I even have them tattooed down my shoulder. This is such a gorgeous floral & makes me think of when my mom & I would attend orchid shows growing up.
Demeter Beeswax– Honey has been a big hit int he fragrance world in the past few years but I’m loving this Beeswax take too! We used to go to honey stands & buy items made from beeswax like candles. Smells just like it!
Demeter First Love– I actually got a trial size of this fragrance & knew I needed a full size! First Love is a light floral combination of lemon zest, jasmine, honeysuckle, water lotus and white rose. This isn’t too sweet or strong- perfect for those that want a more tamed floral.
Demeter Almond– Who doesn’t love almonds? Well…if you don’t I’m sorry. Almonds are totally a thing in our house & we eat them often. We even coat chicken with them- recipe on my blog Home in High Heels here! I love how nutty & sweet this comes off almost like a baking ingredient.
Demeter Giant Sequoia– This scent ties back to my childhood when we would go camping out with the Sequoia trees. I have such amazing memories of those trips & this scent locks that in. To me, this fragrance smells like the air blowing through the trees. Sequoia trees are generally considered the largest living organisms on earth. It is hard to be anything but awed in their presence.
Demeter Wet Garden– I know I’ve talked about this scent before because I reach for this sometimes when I have my winter blues! It smells exactly as promised with notes of wet dirt, greens, & light floral.
Demeter Cucumber– Wow! I can’t believe I didn’t own this before! For me this is dead on. I use cucumber in recipes all the time (check out this Asian salad using them here!) & we regularly stock them as snacks. This has that crisp, cleanness that isn’t overpowering at all.
So tell me- what notes make you think of spring? Do you have any Demeter scents? I’d love to hear what fragrances you’re reaching for at the moment!
