When you smell Apple Pie what do you think of? Or when the scent of Rain wafts through the air, how does it make you feel?
Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t melt at the scent of a new born baby or swoon at the smell of pages in a brand new book?


Eggplant & Poppy have been stocking Demeter Fragrances for well over 2 years now & it is a brand that makes us smile.

Because every time you smell something you love, you smile.


And the world needs more smiles.  It is just that simple, and that difficult: we believe people can change the way they feel, through scent. Demeter Fragrances were created to evoke a memory, or a feeling when you smell something.


Starting in 1996 in New York City, Demeter’s original mission was to capture the beautiful smells of the garden and nature in wearable form.

The Demeter name itself was inspired by the Greek Goddess of Agriculture.

So it’s pretty self-explanatory that their first three fragrances were DirtGrass and Tomato, and were sold in a few stores in NYC. 


Today, with over 300 fragrances from 
Play Doh, Blackberry Pie, New Car,
Funeral Home , Pipe Tobacco, Birthday Cake
& Wet Garden

They have radically expanded their range.


With a famous following now there are celebrities all over the world turning to these powerful bottles of memories…

Madonna, Clint Eastwood & Kate Moss all call Dirt  a favourite, Drew Barrymore has been turning to Gin & Tonic as her daily fragrance, Courtney Cox loves Tomato & Tyra Banks Cinnamon Bun.




Not only can you can buy them all over the world from New York to Beijing, and from Moscow to London, you can also buy them from our little old shop, Eggplant + Poppy!

This morning I talked on a local Cairns radio station about these quirky perfumes & how fun they are….

All Demeter fragrances are single note fragrances, meaning they are the smallest combination of ingredients which means they are perfect for layering… which makes this range even more exciting.

Let's Layer + Make Your Own Signature Scent!

You can buy a Condensed Milk & Layer it with Freshly Brewed Coffee for that warm morning hit.



Pumpkin Pie & Cinnamon Bun for a taste of autumn or a sweet memory of grandma’s kitchen.
Dirt& Grass layer REALLY well together & bring that earthy goddess element.
Suntan Lotion & Mojito…. Hello island holiday!
New Baby & Baby Shampoo…. Nothing ever smelt so beautiful.
One of my favourites & daily applied is Tomato& Basil(omg don’t knock it until you try it, and no it doesn’t smell like bruschetta)

Another one of my favourites is Incense & Paperback together – I love lighting incense at home & curling up to read a book, so it’s only natural these evoke a sense of peace & relaxation for me.



There is overwhelming evidence that our strongest emotional responses are to scents, triggered by our sense of smell.  This means choosing a Demeter fragrance is often related to the personal emotional responses already associated with that smell.  And those associations vary wildly from person to person.

The bottom line:  everyone knows what smells are pleasing to themselves.  That simple question - "what kind of smells do you like?" - is the key to choosing your Demeter fragrances.

What is your most favourite smell?
