I featured the Demeter Fragrance Mother’s Day Bouquet Set* back when it was actually Mother’s Day in my gift guide, but hadn’t actually reviewed the fragrances yet so it is about time.
Demeter Fragrance Mother’s Day Bouquet Set contains three classic, best-selling scents from the brand that are all realistic florals perfect for spring. Although the set is exclusive to Loblaws, all the scents are available online individually. The scents included are Demeter Fragrance Lavender, Jasmine and Lilac.
Demeter Fragrance Lavender: This is a very strong but realistic lavender fragrance, that I find overpowering at first, however it does dry down to a more calming classic scent. Perhaps because it starts off so strong I find that this scent is the longest-lasting of the three. I think this would be lovely sprayed into the air before you take a bath, or just as a soothing reminder of spring during the winter months.
Demeter Fragrance Jasmine: There’s something pretty spicy about this perfume but the end result is a really classic, pure jasmine scent. All three of the fragrances in the Demeter Fragrance Mother’s Day Bouquet Set could easily be worn as either perfumes or used as room sprays, depending on how floral you to smell. However again, this is pretty strong and I would probably layer it with something else (maybe the Lilac one!) Lasting power is decent at 4 to 5 hours on the skin.
Demeter Fragrance Lilac: This is the most subtle scent of the three, and that’s probably why the wear is the shortest–although still a decent 4 hours. However it’s also my favourite, a lovely lilac that really reminds me of fresh spring flowers. This is not one of the musty, old lady lilacs, instead it is flowers opening, clean and bright.
Overall, the Demeter Fragrance Mother’s Day Bouquet Set is a complete hit with me as all three scents are fantastic and very realistic. They would all make great room sprays or could be worn as perfumes easily, though I do recommend layering with something else. Mother’s Day is over but there’s no reason you can’t grab these fragrances, even if it’s for yourself.
