Holy Water, Demeter Fragrances
Demeter Fragrance Library's Holy Water - Many of us have wonderful memories of church. The porcelain font, ozone scented water, oak scented pew - all mingled. Lovely, we think. To capture this scent, imagine an old European church, in a small town off the beaten track. This is the scent of the blessed water you might find there in an old stone container.
When Demeter launched their Holy Water scent, NEW YORK MAGAZINE wrote that Madonna had been approached to do a scent with this name. It was, apparently, too sacrilegious even for her.
The use of holy water goes back to the earliest days of the Christian era. It is known that some of the faithful believed that holy water possessed curative properties for certain diseases, and that this was true in a special manner of baptismal water. However, baptismal water was not the only holy water. Some was permanently retained at the entrance to Christian churches where a clerk sprinkled the faithful as they came in.
And as with all things DEMETER, this fabulous scent is just as fitting for your room, or your pillow, as it is for your person!
