I admit it, I am a fragrance addict. I have a larger collection than I will ever be able to use, but years of frequent overseas travelling, and having the habit of buying at least one new fragrance on the way out and another one when flying home again, and suddenly it adds up to a few.

Some people believe in having a signature scent - I don't - there as simply too many beautiful scents out there to be explored, so why limit yourself to only one! One of the brands I particularly love is Demeter, which was launched in 1996, and now available here in Australia from MU Australia
Unlike other fragrances, The Demeter Pick-Me-Up scents are single note scents, which means that you can personalise and customise any scent by layering the colognes directly on the skin, and with a huge, and I mean huge selection of different scents in the fragrance library, you can easily create a multitude of unique scents to suit your mood and tastes.

You can go for classics such Jasmine, Freesia, Lavender and Cherry Blossom, but also go for some of the strange scents in the Demeter fragrance library such as Dirt, Dust, Play-Doh , Sushi or Pizza.

If you're a little scared of experimenting, Demeter has created a 'Foolproof Blending Catalogue' with different scents that can be blended in any combination, - you simply pick any three and wear alone or in any combination.
But regardless of what types of scents you prefer, fact is that there are so many different to chose from, and with just a few, you can create your own Fragrance Library and keep mixing, the opportunities are simply endless!

While Demeter does give suggestions on how to mix and match and even has trio packs available, I've decided to go all out, and select three scents that appealed to me; Salt Air, Hawaiian Vanilla, and Ocean.

Demeter Salt Air - Imagine a perfect sea breeze on the perfect beach at your favorite tropical island. Now you have the perfect description of Demeter's Salt Air. There's just no denying it... Demeter's Salt Air will have you thinking of that last vacation and much needed new one. Take off to the land of tranquility where the scent of the sea breeze wakes you up each day and sends you off to dreamland at night. But don't forget to book your airfare early!

Demeter Hawaiian Vanilla - Cultivated on the Hamakua Coast on Big Island of Hawaii this unique orchid grows in the wealthiest soil on earth. Hawaiian heat, sweet rains and mild breezes transform Hawaiian Vanilla blossoms into the richest most aromatic vanilla beans in the world. Demeter's Hawaiian Vanilla is rich in the aromatic scent of the vanilla bean. Warm and wonderful...without it, life would just be "plain vanilla".

Demeter Ocean - Ah, this fragrance is no more or less than "the breath of the sea". Simple: sun, salt, sand............lovely. Oceans cover 65% of the earth so the next time your near one......do a comparison for us. Meanwhile, take our Ocean with you wherever you, as a small reminder every day how invigorating the ocean can be. 

These three scents that individually reminds me of summer, so the perfect scents to use in the midst of winter to reminisce over warm sunny days and the oceans salty breeze.. 

Of these three, Salt Air is by far my favourite, and also the strongest scent and freshest scent, Ocean seems to be the weaker, but mixed with Salt Air it gives a beautiful scent with more depth. Hawaiian Vanilla is my least favourite, and probably not one I would have picked if I had sniffed it first, and that's mainly because, while its supposed to be a vanilla scent, it does remind me of coconut, a scent that I am just not that fond off in too big doses!
