Demeter perfume arrived in Taiwan from New York to the great anticipation of many fans. The brand started back in 1994 developing perfumes with unique fragrances, and is headed by former Kiehl perfumer, Christoper Brosius, and his friend, Christopher Gable. Their goal is to provide simply-packaged fragrances that suit individual characteristics, connecting people to things that happen around them daily through the memory of smell.
Demeter also brands itself as a "fragrance library", containing any singular fragrance that you are looking for, whether you are in Tokyo, Taichung or any other Asian cities this business expands to in the future.
Ingredients used in their perfumes are all natural. Plant-based fragrances are derived using a combination of traditional, hands-on techniques and more modern extraction methods. You can literally smell the freshness of their Bulgarian Rose perfume or the earthy flavors in their Tomato perfume. Demeter also provides a series of frangrance selections for cocktails, including Lavender Martini or Gin & Tonic. If the fragrance is not enough, you can even make your own cocktails with a recipe attached to the perfume bottle.
