Ever since I bought my first bottle of Demeter Perfumes a lifetime ago (if my memory serves me right, my first scent was Orange Cream Pop, and I was hooked), I’ve developed a massive crush on their products. Demeter Fragrance Library and I are in love and the love is real girls!! What’s not to love? They have so many different scents, they are really affordable and they are easily available!
When I graciously received a package from the brand, let’s just say that I was beyond happy!! You made a grown-ass woman giggle like a schoolgirl. Truth be told, upon receiving it, I rapidly sprayed all five aromas across my arms. I then realized that maybe I abused a little after a few « mature » ladies looked at me funny, but what the heck, when you are in love, you tend to shout it loudly from the rooftops!! Their reactions made me think: I normally prefer utterly sweet perfumes – smelling like dessert day in, day out is my mission in life. What if those new fragrances were not for me? What if my skin chemistry was rejecting those floral essences? I was intrigued and got scared but… (Drumroll!!), it turns out that all five (not kidding) are out of this world and are perfectly suited for me!!!
Orchid Collection 2016 Limited Edition
The first Orchid Collection Set includes 3 bottles of 1 oz for 35$ (or less). In my frugal book, it’s more than affordable for such fun fragrances! If you are wondering how can these very fair priced fragrances be so good, beats me too but I can assure you that Demeter perfumes smell like the real thing! An Orchid fragrance smells like an Orchid and my Angel Food cologne smells like the real stuff.
Orchids and Mothers are both natures wonders, so nothing seemed simpler than putting the two together for Mother’s Day.
Warm, spicy and sultry, Twilight Orchid is an ideal scent to wear anytime, but designed with Mom’s special evening in mind.
To Yo Ran
Light and lemony, perfect for daytime, or for layering with another fragrance.Aphrodite’s Slipper
With its cinnamon and clove notes, Aphrodite’s Slipper is perfect all day long.
Before trying these, I didn’t have a clue on each perfume basic notes! After extensive nose testing, Twilight became my totally favorite « sweet » scent of the five, even with its notes of spices. Maybe as I get older, I adapt to new aromas and open my sense of smell to other delicious bouquet.
The Orchid Collection also includes 2 other cologne sprays:
Inspired by the velvety texture of fresh calypso orchid petals, this fragrance captures the olfactory impression of these pink colored flowers, creating a unique exotic, and almost tropical effect. We tried to create the experience like “bathing in orchid petals’’, taking a truly a different approach to constructing this fragrance.Calypso Orchid is also known as the Fairy Slipper or Venus Slipper because of its fantastical, whimsical shape.
Cattleya is a slightly sweet and creamy floral with a citrusy top note, but we used patchouli to create a different kind of depth and sophistication.
This “Queen of the Orchids” is named after botanist William Cattleya, who was the first to cultivate the Cattleya, and one of the first botanists to study orchids.

Other great thing to know about the products:
♥ 95% of their ingredients are derived from natural or renewable resources.
♥ No artificial colors. Any color in a Demeter scent is a natural product of the ingredients used to make the scent. This is why most Demeter scents are clear.
♥ No binders or emulsifiers
♥ No phthalates
♥ Alcohol naturally fermented from corn
♥ Never Tested on Animals
Of all the Single Note Scents available at Demeter, this Orchid Collection is designed to please a large number of girls. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it would make a perfect gift for your loved ones!
The only small downside of some Demeter fragrances is that they don’t last all day. Maybe it’s because they normally try to create scents with the combinations of the fewest ingredients possible, that I don’t know, but for a consumer, you always want to get the most bang for your buck. With Demeter, at such affordable prices, you really get a great value for money. I only have praises for this brand: They are fresh, unpretentious and always looking to add to their collection. The brand wants to triggers our strongest emotional response. Choosing and wearing a Demeter fragrance is a personal expression of that emotional response. With collections such as Zombie, Elvira and Zodiac, you are certainly not going to go unnoticed…
To some it up, here is, in their own words, their mission statement and boy do I agree …
Demeter Fragrance Library wants to expand the use of fragrance, each day, everywhere. This is because every time you smell something you love, you smile. And the world needs more smiles. It is just that simple, changing the way people feel, through scent.
Smelling Good Has Never Been This Easy!
