Reviews of Snow

Light, earthy, floral scent with something of a menthol feel to it for a cooling effect. Smells like something an older lady might wear or smell like.

Decent projection.

I don't know how Demeter does it, but Snow really does smell just like the air before a snowfall. That wet, sort of floral smell, that smells of earth and moisture and...air? I like it! A couple of stars off for longevity. When I spray, I might get an hour or two before it fades.

I am fascinated by Demeter and collect them as I find them...and Snow is a goodie!

There are some features of snow on a wool coat in this blend, but only briefly. For most of the time this is a slightly earthy and clear impression, that has whiffs of gently spicy undertones towards the end.

I get soft sillage, limited projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

Not a bad scent for warmer winter days, nicely conceptualised but a bit generic. The opening blast is nice. 2.5/5.

It reminds me of when I say to my brother, after he spends a day out in winter, in the countryside or the woods: "you smell like cold!" It's very spot on. It also makes me think of "not a parfume". Sillage shouldn't be greater (its weak though), but longevity should be. Ironically, it makes a good, fresh summer scent.
Like some other Demeter fragrances, it's very oily and can ruin your clothes.

Moldy, old cellar. Dirt notes. Old library book smell. Not for me...

The smell of the cold air clinging to people's coats when they enter a warm house on a snowy evening. For me, this isn't quite the smell of snow. It comes awfully close, but it's not quite there. I detect a cloth or wool note in here, which makes it smell to me far more like those snow-dusted coats than like the snow itself. All the same, it is marvelous.

I grew up in the northeastern part of the United States, New England, but for nearly twenty years now I have lived in Portland Oregon, in the Pacific Northwest. I do not miss the hot humid summers of the northeast one bit, nor the slushy muddy springs, but I can sometimes become extremely homesick for New England's cool crisp autumns, and also for its cold and snowy winters. This fragrance is therefore a kind of comfort scent for me. I tend to break it out in the rainy wintertime, whenever I start feeling homesick for what I still secretly think of as "a PROPER winter," by which I mean one that is freezing cold and blanketed in snow.

Demeter sells this fragrance as a room/linen spray as well as a cologne (and a bath gel, and a lotion, and a massage oil, and etc.), and while I purchased the cologne, I've since found that I like it much better as an environmental scent than as something to wear on my skin. If I had it to do over again, I'd just go with the room spray to start out with...although at this price point, it's hardly extravagant to be liberal with spraying it about anyway.
