Is there no bigger post-holiday hangover than a post-holiday…day? With bloated bellies and heavy hearts, we trudge back into those short winter days just a bit less twinkly. After all, Santa has come and gone, along with those cheery retro holiday tunes, long-lost relatives, and too-short vacation days. But what if there was a way to retain some of our holiday twinkle; a way to prolong that ephemeral magic – or at least, re-start it? There is! It’s called the Demeter scent library. The brainchild collection of Christopher Brosius and Christopher Gable, Demeter bottles are filled not merely with scents, but with memories. Holiday brunch is never further than a drizzle, (or spritz) away with the sweet, welcoming scent of Maple Syrup; perfectly spiced (and spiked) Egg Nog is available year-round here (incidentally, splashing yourself with it is not only allowed, but encouraged). You can even warm up to the smoky, spirited clove concoction that is Fireplace – especially perfect should you be wearing Demeter’s award-winning winter classic, Snow (or, should you live, say, in Florida, and miss the white stuff). There’s even a way to relive Christmas in New York, and recall the sweet toasty scent of roasted sidewalk chesnuts – any time you desire. Available online at
