I’ve been very slow at reviewing my Demeter fragrances this time around, by which I mean I’ve only reviewed one, but here’s what happened guys– I got sick and lost my sense of smell! Very hard to review perfume when that’s the case, but now it’s back and I’m going to do my best to stay on track, starting with the delicious Demeter Fragrance Vanilla Cookie Dough.*
Oh I knew that I would love Demeter Fragrance Vanilla Cookie Dough before I even took off the cap to spray it for the first time, but I admit it wasn’t a hundred percent what I expected. I thought it would be a full-on sweet scent, like Demeter Fragrance Sugar Cookie, but it’s actually a bit more complex than that. It’s almost like if you took vanilla and cookie dough and added in some amaretto. As the scent develops, I do think it ends up being more strictly vanilla cookie dough, but the initial amaretto notes means it avoids being overly syrupy sweet.
On my skin, Demeter Fragrance Vanilla Cookie Dough lasted 5-6 hours, which is pretty good wear for a product simply described as a “cologne spray”. Because this doesn’t strictly smell like cookies, I think it could definitely be worn as a perfume. However, because of the type of scent it is, and because I have a ton of perfume already, I will be using my Demeter Fragrance Vanilla Cookie Dough as a room spray instead. I’m happy that it lasted so long my skin though because that means it will hang around in the air for awhile, making my apartment smell delicious.
It wasn’t exactly what I expected, but Demeter Fragrance Vanilla Cookie Dough was definitely a success for me and I think it’s very delicious. Once I finish using up Sugar Cookie, this will probably be the next room spray I use in my apartment!
What’s your favourite bakery scent? Demeter does a ton, and I’m lusting over quite a few others, for example, Apple Pie, Brownie, and Vanilla Cake Batter all sound delicious!
