In my day-to-day life I enjoy smelling like the foods I eat. Or maybe I should say the desserts I eat. I love to eat macaroni and cheese but don't know that I'd want to smell like it, TBH. Anyway, I'm excited to share some delectable scents that smell very much like some of my favorite desserts or gourmand scents as the scent-connoisseurs like to say.
Demeter Fragrance Library has launched a new scent system, if you will:
the Demeter Foolproof Blending Library.
How is it foolproof, you ask? Well, it's foolproof because Demeter offers a Duo or Trio of scents which will absolutely totally always smell great when combined. No matter what proportion or combination. See... foolproof!
Foolproof Blending Duo
Two fragrances that can be combined or blended together in any combination or proportion. Simple, subtle blends for everyday.
The Duo we chose included Jasmine and Lavender.
Foolproof Blending Trio
Three fragrances from a single fragrance category that can be combined or blended together in any combination or proportion. These blends are more complex than the Duos, but still linear and appropriate any day, any time.
The Trio we chose included Hawaiian Vanilla, Gingerbread and Angel Food.
AKA gourmand scent paradise.
In our experience working with these Foolproof Blending Sets, it's much easier and less messy to just spray the scents in whichever combination you desire directly onto the skin, i.e. two spritzes of Hawaiian Vanilla and one spritz of Gingerbread for a warm and sweet but spicy scent all day long. Although you can create a custom scent with the empty bottle provided, the droppers were very flimsy and several broke while trying to transfer the scents to their new bottle. Moreover, once you mix the scents in the new bottle, there's less opportunity to mix it up on a regular basis. But, again, that's just our personal experience. We don't like to commit to any scent for too long so we prefer spritzing as we go. However, it's great to have the option to mix your own bottle if you find your perfect holy grail combo that you want to wear forever and ever.
