Our most emblematic fragrance, Demeter's dirt was made to smell exactly like the dirt from the fields around the Pennsylvania fami...ly farm belonging to our founding perfumer.

Lullaby and goodnight. This scent says chill out. Demeter's lavender is powdery, soft and enveloping. Like most Demeter florals, i...t is inspired by the living plant, and is not some reductive, perfumed version of lavender. Lavender is a shrubby plant indigenous to the mountainous regions of the countries bordering the western half of the Mediterranean, and cultivated extensively for its aromatic flowers in various parts of France, in Italy and in England and even as far north as Norway. It is also now being grown as a perfume plant in Australia. The fragrant oil to which the odor of lavender flowers is due is widely used in perfumery, and to a lesser extent in medicine. The fine aromatic smell is found in all parts of the shrub, but the essential oil is only produced from the flowers and flower-stalks. read more

Rocky, rich, deep and green, Demeter's clover is a celebration of not just the clover, but the rugged and untamed nature of the Ir...ish countryside. The three-leaf clover, or shamrock, is a symbol closely associated with Ireland, but it is the rare four-leaf clover we seek for luck. It has been estimated that there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. By legend, each leaflet represents something: The first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck. We hope that our clover will bring you all four. read more

Demeter's frankincense is a full, rich, woody, spicy expression of a classic fragrance note. So classic, that the bible mentions i...t as one of the three types of gifts the wise men gave to the baby Jesus. Frankincense is tapped from the scraggly but hardy boswellia sacra trees by slashing the bark, which is called striping, and allowing the exuded resin to bleed out and harden. There are several species and varieties of frankincense trees, each producing a slightly different type of resin. Differences in soil and climate create even more diversity of the resin, even within the same species. read more

Demeter's incense is a warm, deep, rich blend of exotic notes. It is inviting and enveloping, the kind of scent that is both simpl...e and complex at the same time. There is no effort needed to appreciate it, yet every time you experience incense from Demeter you will find new depth and nuance. Demeter's incense is centered on a unique core of copal. Copal is a type of resin produced by plant or tree secretions, particularly identified with the forms of aromatic tree resins used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as a ceremonially burned incense, as well as for a number of other purposes. More generically, the term copal is now also used to describe resinous substances in an intermediate stage of polymerization and hardening between more viscous and 'gummy' resins and amber. read more
Demeter's caramel perfectly captures the essence of the candy. It is deep, rich, sweet, syrupy and sensual.
