The Library of Fragrance products are produced by New York-based company, Demeter Fragrance Library Inc.
Originally established in 1996, Demeter set out to create fragrances that captured all the wonderful smells that surround us every day, but are too often under appreciated in our busy, pressured, multi-tasking world. The first three scents belonging to the collection – Dirt, Grass and Tomato – were launched at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. With the brand quickly gathering a loyal cult following, the concept soon expanded to include an even broader range of smells – no matter how odd or unusual – and scents such as Gin & Tonic, Baby Powder and even Play-Doh began to populate the library.
Today, Demeter’s head office remains in Greater New York, whilst the 20,000 square foot factory is located in central Pennsylvania. Everything the company sells is made in this factory, enabling the brand to continue to specialise in unique fragrances and the kind of labour-intensive, short-run, hand-bottled production that makes it possible to carry such a diverse ‘library’ of products.
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.
Today, Demeter’s products are sold in over 35 countries – from Paris, to Moscow, to Hong Kong. There are over 300 unique fragrances in The Library of Fragrance collection – 101 of these are available in the UK via this website, with a carefully curated selection of favourites available exclusively at Boots.
We are always keen to hear from you; get in touch with us via this page, our Facebook page, or Twitter to tell us which scent you would like to see available in the UK next. Let your imagination run wild, and then tell us where it’s been.
