Demeter, which is a reference in terms of realistic scents aiming to recapture the familiar or not so familiar smells that are part of our world, each composition being like an olfactory snapshot of reality, has come up with a new fragrance for its Fragrance Library called Crayon. After Play-Doh and the Jelly Bean series, this is another fun and nostalgic, for some, perfume dedicated to the world of childhood,
Demeter’s Crayon smells just like that new box of Crayolas® you opened on your first day of school........
Invented by cousins, Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith, Crayola® brand’s first box of eight Crayons made its debut in 1903. Crayons were sold for a nickel and were available in only a limited variety of colors. Today, there are over 64 colors and more than 100 types of crayons being made.
Crayola® also makes crayons that smell like flowers, so it only seems appropriate that Demeter make cologne that smells like crayons!
The scent is described as a woody floral musk and comes in a range of ancillary products from calming lotion to room spray. You can also very conveniently sample the perfume first thanks to 1/2 oz mini splash bottles retailing for $5.
