The Perfect Holiday Scent: Demeter Fragrances

With the holidays wrapping up in just a few days, I’ve found myself scrambling to cram in as much Christmas cheer as possible, whether it’s blasting Santa, Baby or wrapping up gifts for those I didn’t get to see over the holidays.

Because the scent is quite strong, it’s not something I prefer to wear as a personal fragrance, but I’ve been spritzing it all over my apartment  throughout December. It’s almost as good as a real tree!  Read more
