Demeter Fragrances Recreates Memories

It is more than mere coincidence that Demeter Fragrances takes its name from the Greek goddess of agriculture. Well known for its cutting edge fragrances like Dirt, Tomato and Grass, the fragrance house stands out by bottling down-to-earth scents that evoke pleasant memories and the experiences of everyday life.

“We create scents that are drawn from memories” explains Christopher Gable, co-founder of Demeter Fragrances. “We want each scent to take people to a special place or time. For instance, Tomato brings me back to my grandfather’s farm, where I’d play in the dirt and sniff the vines of his tomato plants.”

Demeter Fragrances has made familiar and comfortable scents ranging from woods, greens and grasses, to fruits, vegetables and florals. But there are more, including those that capture aromas that don’t come straight from the earth, like Foods or even the Weather. Think of the scent of new-fallen Snow, winner of two Fragrance Foundation Awards, the Oscars of the fragrance industry, in June 2000. In June 2001, Sugar Cane equaled the success of Snow, receiving two Fifi’s.

In all, Demeter Fragrances offer more than 160 single-note scents that have quickly become favorites of celebrities like Samaire Armstrong, Tyra Banks, Drew Barrymore, Alan Cumming, Courteney Cox, Sofia Coppola, Jeane Garofalo, Shalom Harlow, Kirsty Hume, Nathan Lane, Stella McCartney, Kate Moss, Todd Oldham, Ru Paul, Sharon Stone and Uma Thurman.

Demeter Fragrances’ mission is to make the pleasure and luxury of fine fragrance fun and easy to afford. “We don’t want our fragrances to be treated like a ball-gown or tuxedo that is worn only for special occasions,” adds Gable. “We’d rather see them worn everyday, like a comfortable pair of jeans or sensible pants.”

Demeter Fragrances are available in Sephora, Anthropologie, Ulta and Pure Beauty stores, online at, or by calling 1.800.482.0422 Posted by Picasa
