Creating Your Signature Scent With @DemeterCEO

I've been a fan of Demeter fragrances for years! I was invited to make my own custom blend for my major red carpet moments this month and new blog on Latina.com. Here is my scent story & how I created it. All captured with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

If you're not familiar with Demeter... 

Demeter scents are standalone fragrances, they are beautiful in their own right. Because they are notes and accords, they can also be used to build a personalized and customized fragrance. By mixing, matching and layering Demeter fragrance on the skin, you can create a new scent, unlike any other. Obviously changing the relative amounts of each fragrance used in creating the combination will change the scent, but even adjusting the order that the scents or applied will modify the final scent.

I met with Mark Crames and sat with him and his collection of fragrances both classic and new! 

Each are single note fragrances, meaning they are the smallest combination of ingredients that express a single, identifiable smell or idea. These notes or accords are the building blocks master perfumers use to create complex prestige fragrances. Notes and accords are also linear, which means that they express their nature and character immediately, and do not change over time. Complex prestige scents are made up of numerous notes and accords, and their smell changes over time because different notes express themselves over different periods of time. The concept of top, middle and bottom notes is a shorthand method of saying which order the elements of a designer fragrance will express themselves.

Notes are the building blocks that perfumers use to create fragrances. The top, middle and bottom notes are a method of saying the order the elements of a designer fragrance develop.

I told Mark about some of types of scents I like, and we started pairing things together. Here's my final blend — called Le'Aura On The Red Carpet!  

After smelling, mixing, matching and layering different Demeter fragrances I created a new unique scent.

My final sent "LeAura On The Red Carpet" is: 

  • 4 parts Asian Pear
  • 2 parts Beeswax
  • 1 part Vetiver
  • 1 part Between the Sheets
