There’s nothing quite like that certain scent that reminds you of a moment in time. My husband gets all warm and fuzzy from the fresh Ivory Snow scent of newborns in warm clean sleepers and always comments about how it brings him back to when our boys were wee little babies – Oh! All the memories from those early, sleepless days…and nights!
I instantly think of the beach when I smell coconut and that feeling of calmness washes over me as I recall back a few weeks when I was sitting on the beach watching the kids play in the ocean. Sigh. Or then there’s the scent of orange blossoms that take me back to when we vacationed in Italy and walked around the Aventine Hill.
And I know the one fragrance that will bring back many memories when I’m older will be the scent from Linden trees. There’s a massive one on our front lawn and every spring it blossoms and this incredibly beautiful fresh scent surrounds our home. I see people stop in front of our house and just breathe it in. It’s heavenly!
Demeter Fragrance Library is a company that offers over 250 single note scents inspired by smells that surround us every day. Not fussy fragrances just simple clear scents and they are quite popular.
In fact the top ten selling Demeter scents in Canada are…
1. Pure Soap
2. Baby Powder
4. Cherry Blossom
5. Clean Skin
6. Wet Garden
7. Gin & Tonic
9. Hello Kitty
Um…Gin & Tonic??? You lushes!
But there are a few scents that are reminiscent of my childhood (and probably yours) like Playdough! Dirt! Crayons! Fun for sure…although I’m not quite sure I’d wear these on date night!
You can see the names are great! I already have Dragon Fruit which is a sweet scent and there are a few others that I’m interested in like Jasmine, Earl Grey Tea, and Frozen Margarita.
I also spotted Paperback, Cannabis Flower, Snow, Salt Air and Sex on the Beach? I’m curious as to what these smell like. There’s also a Fuzzy Navel scent..which would totally bring me back to my first date with my hubby. *smirk*
It’s fun to discover all the different scents in the library.
