Pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, a touch of ginger and hint of cloves - and there it is, the perfect pumpkin pie, as only Demeter can deliver it. What thanksgiving would be complete without pumpkin pie? Memories of the laughter in the air, and the smells coming from the kitchen, dominate our thoughts. When it comes to thanksgiving we all have special and fond memories, whether it is of a special guest, the origin of a family tradition, or a particular reason to be thankful. And then, of course, there is the rest of the story. According to a study at the Monel institute in Philadelphia, the smell of pumpkin pie increases the arousal level in men by 40%. Maybe our mothers and grandmothers intuitively knew this as truth, as the farm journal's complete pie cookbook, circa 1965, says: 'Men love pie’.
Demeter was conceived in 1996, with a unique and ever expanding perspective on fragrance. The original mission was to capture the beautiful smells of the garden and nature in wearable form. The Demeter name itself was inspired by the Greek Goddess of Agriculture. The first three fragrances were Dirt, Grass and Tomato, and were sold in a few stores in NYC.
Today, with fragrances from Baby Powder and Pure Soap to Gin & Tonic, Play-Doh, Vanilla Cake Batter and even Pizza, we have radically expanded our olfactory goals and geographic reach. Not only can you now buy Demeter fragrances from Apple Blossom to Zombie, but you can buy them from New York to Beijing, and from Moscow to London.
