in the air

different scents can trigger the tiniest memories. demeter bottles these scents, from dirt to croquembouche, each inspired by everyday objects and experiences. i've been a fan of demeter cologne for nearly 10 years, from the time i bought a 10 oz bottle of laundromat spray from their new york store, while visiting my sister in 2002. here are a few spring/summer inspired fragrances that might make me think of warmer days, even in the dead of winter.

i hope you have a wonderful weekend!
