Ambergris is an iconic and historical fragrance note, a natural target for Demeter Fragrance Library.
A whale by-product sometimes referred to as “floating gold”, ambergris is famous for its alluring and sensual musky scent. It has been used in perfumery as far back as the 10th century AD, its rarity making it one of the most sought-after perfume ingredients to this day!
While of course Demeter’s Ambergris is synthetic, it has created a perfect interpretation of that animalic musk smell so unique to the original.
HOW IT WEARS
This Eau de Cologne is musky, salty and a little sweet, capturing the elusive scent of ambergris brilliantly. Complemented by a whisper of vanilla to amplify its creaminess, Ambergris is a wonderful skin scent that gently envelops the wearer for 3-4 hours.
Ambergris is a legendary ingredient in perfume, known not only for its own unique scent but for its ability to amplify other perfume notes and make them shine. This is therefore the perfect layering scent, but also stands up by itself as a sexy your-skin-but-better fragrance too!
ABOUT THE BRAND
Named after the Greek goddess of agriculture, Demeter Fragrance Library was founded in 1996 with a mission to capture the beautiful smells of the garden and nature in the form of wearable fragrance. Their first few scents – Dirt, Grass and Tomato – were immediate hits as they represented such a point of difference in the fragrance market, and still remain cult faves to this day!
Since their debut, Demeter Fragrance Library has expanded to include hundreds of scents. Each of their fragrances draws inspiration from everyday objects and experiences – be it the ones you can find in nature or elsewhere – from Baby Powder to Thunderstorm, from Gin & Tonic to Kitten Fur.
All Demeter fragrances are single note scents, meaning they use the smallest combination of ingredients possible to express an olfactory idea. Notes are linear, which means they express their olfactory nature immediately and do not change over time. Linear is simple, and simple is perfect for every day. This simplicity is what makes Demeter’s fragrances so evocative and transportive – whether they remind you of an at-home creature comfort or a childhood memory, they will always elicit some sort of reaction.
Demeter is now a family-owned and operated business with all their products finished and batched by hand in Pennyslvania, USA. All of their fragrances are at least 95% derived from natural and sustainable sources and are not tested on animals.
