About Us â€“ The Library of Fragrance
Scents are now created by Demeter's CEO, Mark Crames, who has been running fragrance companies since 1986.
His creations include the top-selling Baby Powder, Pure Soap and Clean Skin and he continues to travel the world looking for inspiration for great, new Demeter experiences.
Mark Crames, Demeter ...
Mark Crames, Demeter Fragrance Library CEO, explains that the company's singular scents "are the notes and accords perfumers use to create the more complex designer and prestige fragrances.
He explains that blending them is "like using a palette of paints to paint a picture.
Another perk to using singular scents like these, says Crames, "is that they express their nature immediately and do not change over time.
A complex fragrance takes time to evolve and can change drastically as its base notes develop and its top notes fade.
A combination that smells divine at first might be less desirable hours later.
"Anything more intense is going to take longer to fully express itself," he says.
is quick to point out that layering a single-note scent with a complex fragrance is something people, himself included, do all the time.
"I like adding Demeter's Patchouli or Black Pepper to accent Halston Z-14," he
"A favourite single note, like citrus, with a complex fragrance can create an entirely new fragrance."
As for a strategy that a fragrance layering rookie should keep in mind, Crames
advises sticking to a single fragrance family, or related families.
"Blending three different vanilla scents is easier than a vanilla, a flower, and a wood," he
says, but quickly adds that "citrus, fruit or vanilla scents work well with most florals, green notes, and woods, while animalistic ones, like leather, present greater challenges."
First and foremost, Crames
advises choosing only smells that we love.

When I was introduced to Mark Crames, founder of Demeter Fragrance, I was intrigued by his business and unique vision.
With scents such as Vanilla Cake Batter, Grass, Rain, Dirt, Fresh Linen, Chocolate and Bubblegum, Demeter's philosophy was to maximize the bond between scent and sense memory.
If scent can make you smile…then Demeter's fragrances surely achieved that goal.
This was a perfume business very different than any I had ever worked with and whose success excited me.
Mark's career path is unusual and one that I found quite interesting.
Mark is an attorney who worked as a District Attorney for Janet Reno.
