I’m really picky with my fragrances, I normally wear the same one or two perfumes for like 3 years. I cannot wear heavy musks or florals as they give me a huge headache very quickly. With my small number of perfumes, mixing them sounded crazy when I first received the information about Demeter Foolproof mixing kits. Demeter does offer a number of mixing duos, and trios. The Foolproof Blending Duo’s come with two 1oz sprays, a refillable bottle with label, 4 droppers, and a fannel. I got the Clean Skin, and Sunshine Duo. Clean skin smells like a shower, I cannot really place any of the notes that Demeter list in their notes, but I think I’m in the minority of not likely this scent. Sunshine is my least favorite, as the heavy cotton note in this, turns to smelling like wet dirt on me. I have weird biochemistry. Sadly I can not wear this on their own, as both have floral notes, and the scents turns very heavy on my skin. Dam biochemistry. But I do enjoy Clean skin mixed with all three of the scents in the Demeter Foolproof Blending Trio in Vanilla.
I love this set as it has different styles of vanilla. Hawaiin Vanilla is a floral vanilla, Angel food is the sweet vanilla, and gingerbread is the spicy vanilla. Out of the three, Gingerbread is my favorite as it can act as both a base for other perfumes, or a top notes, or is just amazing on its own.
I have not mixed a perfume in the empty bottle, but I enjoy mixing them on my skin, as I have more control of how much of the base, and top note are in the fragrance. I spray the base scent first on my waist, then the middle scent, and lastly the top notes, and rub my waist together to mix the scents together, and then apply to my neck.
Demeter was very nice and included a USB key with information about mixing fragrances, and a key ring size of laundry. I love laundry, due it smelling like gain laundry soap(which is not cruelty free), which I love from working in a second hand clothing store. I have not put it on my keyring as I’m afraid of losing it. Dam I’m weird. XD
