I’ve been exploring perfume lately. I haven’t worn fragrance in years and years, and I’m having fun getting samples of shi-shi stuff from The Perfumed Court.
But I’ve noticed that I like simpler scents, and things that don’t smell traditionally “perfumey.” So I’m looking at Demeter stuff. I reckon if I like L’Humaniste, only I wish it smelled even more of a real gin & tonic, maybe I should just try “Gin & Tonic” from Demeter.
I’m also wondering if people combine Demeter scents. I’m thinking you could mix Almond, Incense or Pipe Tobacco, and Play-Doh, and wind up smelling much like my current favorite Luctor et Emergo (but you’d pay $30 instead of $150, and have the option to wear them separately too). Even expensive scents don’t seem to last terribly long on me, so I’m not concerned that cheaper stuff would wear out sooner.
And damn it, just smelling like pink grapefruit or lilac would be nice some days. No elaboration needed!
What is your impression of Demeter stuff? What “flavors” do you like, and how do you use them?
