Foolproof Blending with Demeter Duo and Trio Fragrance Kits

Hi everyone!

I’m back with another Demeter post today! I LOVE Demeter fragrances, they’re all so different and unique from anything else I’ve tried before, and thanks to the Canadian Beauty Bloggers I get to share more with you!

What’s nice about the Demeter fragrances is that you can mix and match them to get even more unique scents that you can be almost 100% sure no one else will have. They have created Duo and Trio Foolproof Blending Kits to get you started on mixing your own fragrance. Today I will be sharing with you the Vanilla Trio kit which includes Hawaiian Vanilla, Angel Food, and Gingerbread, plus a custom Duo kit with Clean Skin and Sunshine.

Trio Foolproof Blending Kit in Vanilla ($45 USD)

The trio kits come with three fragrances (obviously), and some blending strips so you can test different combinations.

Hawaiian Vanilla – this one smells SO GOOD! I find it’s a mild vanilla with a hint of floral. Vanilla scents usually remind me of winter, but this one reminds me of summer and it’s definitely something I’ll be wearing when the warmer weather comes around. It doesn’t quite remind me of Hawaii (I have been before), but there is something tropical to the scent.

Angel Food – this one doesn’t smell really strong, but it’s a very mild and sweet scent just like angel food cake, yum!

Gingerbread – I don’t find this one sweet at all, but not overly spicy either. I really find that it smells like gingerbread cookies though, I just want to eat it up! Adding some Angel Food over it adds in some sweetness, but you need LOTS of Angel Food for it to be noticed, almost a 10:1 ratio!

Custom Duo Foolproof Blending Kit in Clean Skin/Sunshine ($35 USD)

The duo kits come with two fragrances, an empty bottle, a little funnel and four droppers so you can mix your own scent in one bottle instead of spraying it on you from two (or more) bottles all the time.

Clean Skin – This one really smells like you just stepped out of the bath or shower and you smell clean with a hint of lingering soap. It’s a light citrus and sweet scent. I really like it, it’s fresh.

SunshineDemeter says Think of your favorite, most comfortable cotton T-Shirt left outside and warmed by the sun. And honestly that’s exactly what it smells like! There’s this very faint hint of fabric softener, and an outdoors freshness that you can only get by drying your clothes outside on the clothesline. This is another one that is really fresh and I quite enjoy.

My Custom Fragrance

Demeter helps you out by giving you some basics on blending, but basically do what YOU want! :-)

Just don’t do what I did and knock over a bottle. :-(

Alright, the mess is cleaned up so let’s get blending! All I knew is that I did not want Gingerbread in my custom scent because it just didn’t appeal to me.

At first I tried a few combinations on paper strips, then sprayed a combo on each arm. At that point I started mixing in the bottle… then I sprayed the mix on a leg – on the calf (since both arms were already sprayed). It wasn’t quite there yet so I ajusted the mix some more and sprayed the other leg. I looked like a human pretzel making my scent, lol!

I ended up going with:

– 5 parts Hawaiian Vanilla
– 5 parts Angel Food
– 2 parts Clean Skin
(no Sunshine)

And I call my special custom scent Hawaiian Vacation!

That was so much fun! I’ll definitely experiment some more and include the other Demeter fragrances that I have.

I’m not the only one who got to play fragrance master with Demeter, check out all the other reviews and custom blends!

What would your custom fragrance be like?

  • i feel like i should have gone with the sunshine/clean duo instead. this sounds so perfect. like how can you not enjoy fresh cotton. its as foolproof as they say.

    • I really enjoy both Clean Skin and Sunshine! I do find them better on their own too. I think I’ll reach for them a lot this spring and summer because they’re both light and fresh scents.

  • Awesome combination! Love the name you came up with too! I loved mixing my scents… even though I spilled a bunch too… lol

    • Thank you Rebekah!
      I was so bummed that I spilled Hawaiian Vanilla because it’s my favourite of them all. But perfumes always seem to last me sooo long so in the end I’m sure it won’t even make a difference. :-)

  • Your custom scent sounds lovely! Who doesn’t love a Hawaiian vacation? :) Also how did you get that awesome label? Did you make it yourself? #skills

    • Thank you Megan! :-)
      I made the label myself. At first I was going to try writing it and drawing an hibiscus, but then figured it would be best to print it, and I Mod Podged it to the bottle.

  • I love your custom label!! This was such a fun campaign!
