“Garden Smells” Decant Pack

Spring garden in Toronto -

Gwen: “Hi Kay. Thought I’d give you a call to see what you’re up to.”

Kay:    “I’m outside on the deck, watching the garden grow”

Gwen: “Sounds like you’re gonna be awhile.  Want me to call back in a couple of months?”

Kay:    “Ha, ha, ha! The magic is happening, Gwen. It all starts with Spring! Warm days and nights, and lots of gentle showers so everything is greening up! OMG I love the smell of gardens! Tulips, daffodils and hyacinths will start blooming next week. And then there will be a non-stop parade of more gorgeous blooms from May through September! I can’t wait.

Gwen: “Well, there is a way to enjoy garden smells without a garden.”

Kay:    “How so?”

Gwen:  “Garden smells in a bottle. Scents like Dirt, Lilac, Peony, or Chrysanthemum, Wet Garden, or Pruning Shears from the Demeter Fragrance Library

Kay:    “Oh yeah, the New York indie fragrance line started by Christopher Gable and Christopher Brosius.

Gwen “The very one. Christopher Brosius went on to launch the CB I Hate  Perfume line.”

Kay: “I love CB’s Violet EmpireDemeter fragrances are mostly single-note linear scents, aren’t they, not perfumes in the traditional sense? As I recall they don’t really evolve or last long on the skin, which is why we haven’t listed them. I’m looking on their website now – they call their fragrances a “pick me up cologne spray.”

Gwen:            “Yeah, that’s right, but once in a while they throw in a surprise, like Pruning Shears. It was created by Francis Kurkdjian! It’s so evocative – there’s just a hint of metallic shears cutting through the roses. Sure, Demeter fragrances don’t last long, but you’ll enjoy garden smells indoors whenever you want! I dab them up my arm, in this order - dirt, lilac, peony, Chrysanthemum, Pruning shears, wet garden. It’s just a progression that I like.”

Sometime later….

Kay:    “Well, I love the fresh simplicity of every single one of these. I think these Demeter fragrances really deliver the smells of a garden growing and blooming! 

Gwen: I agree! It’s time to share, and offer our readers a Decant Pack of Demeter Garden fragrances so they can try all six and decide for themselves.”
