Demeter Lychee by Demeter Perfume. Demeter Lychee is a 2007 unisex fragrance featuring a single lychee note.
This delicate fruit comes from a subtropical tree that first grew in southern China over two millennia ago. Chinese emperors loved the fruit for its lightweight sweetness. In this fragrance, lychee lends its citrus, rosy and aquatic note with vanilla-like undertones.
Demeter Fragrance Library was established in 1993 by perfumer Christopher Brosius and marketing exec Christopher Gable.
The pair’s mission was to craft fragrances inspired by nature and everyday life. This ethos resulted in almost 400 fragrances by 2021, ranging from conventional varieties to artfully bizarre scents. The brand’s many successes led to opening a European division, the Library of Fragrance, in 2015. Celebrities such as Zooey Deschanel and RuPaul have their favorites: Deschanel wears Birthday Cake and RuPaul’s favorite is Carrot. Other popular fragrances include Fresh Brewed Coffee, Gin & Tonic, Salt Air, Cannabis Flower, Crayon and Morocco.
