Created by Americans Christopher Brosius and Christopher Gable, Demeter Fragrance Library is not so much a perfumery but more a company that produces scents and aromas taken from nature and everyday smells
. They currently have over 200 fragrances inspired by fruits, flowers, food, drinks and other interesting sources which are meant to create or evoke memories.
Unlike classical perfumes which use the pyramid structure of top, middle and base notes to create more...
complex fragrances, Demeter fragrances are based on a linear composition and do not deviate with time. This simple composition also means they tend to last for a fairly short time on the skin when compared to traditional perfumes and as such are referred to by the company as a “pick me up cologne spray” rather than as an “eau de parfum” or “eau de toilette”. As can be surmised, the floral fragrances from Demeter are made from the essence of flowers yet the more intangible scents such as food, beverages and environment are created using their Headspace technology where the air surrounding the scent source is analyzed and the fragrant molecules are determined.
Among the most popular of the pick me up cologne sprays from Demeter Fragrance Library are Pure Soap, Laundromat, Baby Powder, Cherry Blossom and Wet Garden, Brownie and Dirt.
