Here’s another Demeter PMU Cologne Spray that I thought I reviewed. Well, my thoughts were wrong. I haven’t. On this scorching hot day when I wish I was by the pool, I’m going to review Demeter Suntan Lotion. Demeter Suntan Lotion Cologne is a fun scent for summer or a fun scent to sniff when you long for summer. This isn’t your “typical” suntan perfume. I mean that this isn’t coconuts and piña coladas. This is is old-school suntan lotion. I’m talking about one of my favorite sun products: Bain de Soleil.
So, if you are looking for creamy coconut or something that smells like cocoa butter, then this is not the fragrance for you. This is for those that want a bit of coconut oil mixed with heady white florals like jasmine, orange blossom, and gardenia. The scents of Bain de Soleil Orange Gelee or old school Coppertone. This cologne spray is incredibly “heady”. It’s like the “high pitch” note of fragrance. It’s hissy. These heady florals in an alcohol base are very strong at first. Don’t sniff it immediately or it will knock you down. After a few minutes, the fragrance mellows out. Sniff now. You get orange blossom, jasmine, and manoï. It’s a sexy tropical floral. It’s the perfume you find in those retro tanning lotions. Now we know better than to tan 🙂
I have to admit that I purchased this EDT unsniffed. And I was wanting something that reminded me of a piña colada. I was disappointed. But, not entirely disappointed because I like old school Bain de Soleil and products like it. I like this fragrance but rarely wear it. I guess I feel like if I want to smell like suntan lotion then I’ll wear suntan lotion. Oh, well. But, I admit that I do like this fragrance has a home scent. I can’t slather my home in suntan lotion. This fragrance wears on me for maybe 30 minutes. It’s an orange blossom cologne spray. This is not a recipe for lasting power.
An 1 oz. cologne spray retails for $20. Other sizes are available on Demeter’s website.
FYI: Ughh, today has been so frustrating. It’s 93°, no A/C. My server has been down all day due to an unexpected increase in traffic. My washer overfilled. And I found Frink chewing on the sofa. Well, I’m still hot; however, the server issue has been resolved and I apologize. I am so sorry! I mopped up the water in the basement. And I’ll get Frink the Frug back by giving him a bath. He hates baths. Bahahaha.
