It’s been awhile since I’ve had a Demeter Fragrance review, but I was lucky enough to just receive another batch of products from them, so you can expect a few more reviews as I test out each of the fragrances, which mainly have a wintery feel to them. Of course, I had to start with one of the weirdest ones, because Demeter Fragrance Frozen Pond* was just too strange not to test out first.
“Remember that winter’s day when you first went down to the local pond, hoping it froze overnight so you could skate? No adults, no supervision, just that specialness of being a kid, in all its glory. Frozen Pond captures that unique time and elemental character: water, earth and cold. Dazzling and transparent, Frozen Pond is a lovely year round scent evoking the quiet chill of a Winter morning just before dawn.”
To me, personally, Demeter Fragrance Frozen Pond smells watery and cool and clean. It’s something fresh and aquatic, and it’s the kind of scent that despite its name would be easy to wear year-round. I can definitely smell ice and water, but there’s also something else more complex behind the scent, like being outside when it’s slightly damp out.
The lasting power on Demeter Fragrance Frozen Pond is not great, on my skin it lasts a couple hours tops and then I have to reapply. I do find, in general, that these sorts of clean, cool, scents don’t last as long, but if you’re wearing this (you can also easily use it as a room spray and I think it would really freshen up a room) you’ll probably want to take it with you to reapply. The good thing is that the Demeter containers are really compact so you don’t really need to decant it if you’re putting it in your purse.
Overall, I’d say it’s nice to be back to reviewing Demeter Fragrances. They have such a cool mix of scents, and this is no exception. Demeter Fragrance Frozen Pond is a refreshing scent that somehow manages to smell exactly like what its name says.
What does a frozen pond smell like to you? Are you interested in more Demeter reviews? I have some strange and tasty fragrances lined up (Fireplace, Vanilla Cookie Dough, Green Tea).
