The opening notes are floral in nature, with jasmin and a touch of geranium, with a slightly leafy green undertone. Soon a nigh-ozonic aroma develops in the drydown, which is adding the after-the-rain fell quite well.

Later down the track, an earthy impression leads into the base, reminding me of wet soil.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring daytime scent is not without an original side and is well crafted. No match to great masterpieces, like Apres l’Ondee for instance, in subtlety and quality of ingredients, but on a more pedestrian level it holds its own. 3.25/5.

This is one of those fragrances that are named exactly how they smell. It's a very floral scent, but not pretty. It smells like you have been picking lots of different flower petals with some leaves here and there for a green and vegetal touch and mixed them with dirt after a heavy rain.

This opens with a sharp burst of aldehydes, underscored by a sweetish floral accord, mainly jasmine, to my nose. Five minutes in it turns vaguely aquatic, but rather than an impression of freshness as l expected, l get a strange sort of mustiness here. lt's as if some old plastic garden furniture, or maybe a paddling pool, has been left out in this wet garden a little too long. This impression is stronger when sniffing up close, but from a distance it's much less noticeable, & l do get wafts of damp flowers when l move. The base is softly powdery, fading out after around five hours.
l expected to love this one & am more than a little disappointed, but l guess l shouldn't be surprised that the true scent of a wet garden is so difficult to replicate. Perhaps if l layer it with Dirt it just might hit the spot...

A real wet garden after rain. Very green and very watery. It is not a sofisticated scent but a simple reconstrution of its title. As other Demeters has an acid note that I don't like but for the rest is very nice and fresh. Not for everybody.
Perhaps a good product for layering.

You know when you bring home a big bunch of flowers and set about cutting them up, picking off leaves and arranging them into big vases of water? That smell? Well that is exactly what Wet Garden smells like to me. Real plants and blooms in water. Its actually quite lovely with a very realistic fresh earthy note, but this is more than a Demeter ‘novelty’ fragrance, it feels like a genuine scent! And it certainly has more longevity than the rest of the line.
Despite being full and rounded it is rather linear but here is a tip – layer this with white or green florals and it’ll turn those icy, creamy or herbal blooms into something rather more luscious, dirty and well, wet… in fact pop this little gem over the top of Fracas and you have a rather good (cut price) version of Carnal Flower.

Could you wear it with a hangover? Most certainly, nothing like burying your nose deep in a freshly cut flower to awaken the senses.

This is an hard frangrance to describe
it smells a cross between Lettuce
from a sandwitch and a the after rain
from a forest it's sweet and it does
get a bit overwhelming at times
this may not be my favorite but
it's unique if someone wants to have
something different from the conventional Perfume
