Dandelions, fireflies, wet flowers after a summer squall, fresh basil…these are the uniquely-scented memories of summer and all part of the extensive, impressive Demeter Fragrance Collection.

To celebrate summer and Mother Nature, spritz on a cloud of fresh Dandelion or Grass after you step into your sun dress, or add a dash of Wet Garden to a party on a rainy summer day. Basil is ideal for getting into the spirit of gardening, and Firefly (which really does somehow capture the smell of dirt, bottles and fireflies) is ideal for late-evening drinks on a summery, moonlit evening.

Other summer fragrances from Demeter include Geranium, New Leaf, Ivy, Gardenia, Cucumber, Beet Root and Iris. The kinky among you may appreciate, and perhaps even savor, Mushroom, Lettuce, Laundromat Mildew, Dirt and Sushi.

If you or a friend are celebrating an August birthday, try Birthday Cake or one of the fragrances from the Virtual Cocktail Party line, such as Martini or Mojito. You’ll be the life of the party…people will tend to follow you around in the most curious fashion. Such is the power of scent!

Affordable and thoroughly fun, Demeter fragrances are available at and Sephora , Ulta and Anthropologie stores. Visit the fragrance library online and choose your own personal trip down memory lane.
