I have so many scent memories associated with apple cider, so when the Canadian Beauty Bloggers decided to celebrate December with the brand Demeter, I instantly reached for my bottle of Demeter Mulled Cider*.
I actually have an extra special attachment to cider now that I’m currently doing my PhD on apples, but what I am reminded of when I smell Demeter Mulled Cider is actually childhood memories. When I was a little kid my mom used to make apple cider on the stove with cinnamon sticks in it, and this fragrance perfectly captures that sweet and spicy mix, a warming smell with cloves and apples. At first the scent is stronger on apples, but as it dries down the mulling spices strengthen. My siblings and I would often have the drink after playing outside in the cold, coming in with red faces and warming our hands on the hot mugs of cider.
Demeter Mulled Cider lasts several hours as a fragrance, and also works well as a room spray. As much as I love it, I’m honestly too lazy to make mulled cider so this fragrance is a great way to get my apartment smelling like it instead. Maybe next time I’m home my mom will make some cider for me to drink!
