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. And now to my complete and utter delight, I can work a little Christmas into my beauty regimen, too.

Demeter  has always been one of my go-to sites to scout scents because of their amazing selection of one-note fragrances…and I was psyched to discover they have 2 scents that capture the absolute essence of Christmas – Egg Nog and Christmas Tree.

Egg Nog is a deliciously sweet scent that I now habitually spray at my desk for an instant pick-me-up and a smile. Its creamy, vanilla-nutmeg aroma  will make you immediately want to curl up in your softest sweater with a hot cup of cocoa.

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
