Just received Beeswax and Honey from Demeter in the mail as I am searching for the perfect honey/beeswax scent. I already reviewed Beeswax and I am sad to say that my feelings for Beeswax are mirrored in my feelings for Honey. They both miss the mark, perhaps Beeswax is a bit more far off but I feel that Honey is just not right. It’s initial spray was overwhelmingly synthetic but it has settled a bit and it is beginning to ooze more of a natural sweetness. I do feel though that the base of the fragrance is just too round and toffee-like for my tastes. Its overall texture, I would say, is a hardening drop of wax that has a powdery touch. It is both chewy and a touch powdery. I see why some people find this honey to be accurate but it isn’t what I was hoping for.

If Hedonist and Miel de Bois are at one end of the honey spectrum, this is the goody-two-shoes at the other end. I absolutely adore this scent. Light and true with a hint of clover, a lot like Prairie Nymph but better. Everything a honey scent should be. Two thumbs way up.

Eh.. Not really life-like and has this musky tone that I don’t care for. It’s not bad though.

For me this one is too creamy. It has it s own fragrance world, but it is not my taste.

I was a tad bit hesitant that it’d smell too floral, but I’m glad I went again & got it anyway because it’s NOT in the least bit just pure honey scent!!
Ever so seductive in the sweetest sense, easy to layer with a variety of others & so I also bought the matching lotion. It’s silage also gives it that sensual feel as it stays close to the skin but lightly projects..
If you’re considering it, go ahead & buy it. You won’t regret it!

I was afraid to try this, so many things claim to smell like ‘Honey’, but what they really mean is cloyingly sweet flowers with a powder note. I shouldn’t have been.
This is very much a true raw honey scent. Smells sexy as all get-out on man or woman. A touch powdery on the drydown and lightly floral on the opening, this pairs very naturally with orange blossom/neroli based scents.

Smells. Like. Honey.
That’s it. Warm, rich, and sweet. No powder, no flowers, no pollen. Just honey.
Synthetic at first splash/spritz, but within moments it’ll mellow into a natural golden aroma you can nearly taste.
Sillage and longevity are significantly better than Demeter’s average.
(I actually prefer the subtlety of Demeter’s Beeswax, with its touches of blossoms and pollen. That said, if you want a straightforward honey scent, stick with Honey.)

I love this scent, I layer it over Kim Kardashians Pure Honey. And a touch of orange blossom behind the neck.

This is quite a dirty honey, in the best possible way. It has a very sensual and intimate vibe that reminds me of Tabu. It is floral in a way, but that doesn’t make it an exclusively feminine scent. Indeed I am a man and I wear it just fine. It is very sexy without being slutty, it is dirty without being grubby, natural and organic smelling without being hippy or unrefined. I should inmagine layering this over/under other more complex compositions will be an interesting experience and bring out interesting qualities in these.

I am new to Demeter fragrances (only my second review on Fragrantica) and I’ve been testing them out for the past 3 weeks. I have been on the hunt for a Honey fragrance because I am almost out of my favorite limited edition honey-fragrance MAC Creations Hue: Naked Honey. I would categorize Demeter’s Honey as a floral gourmand.
Demeter’s Honey is one if my top favorite fragrances from Demeter. It opens up very sweet, a tiny bit synthetic (from the alcohol) but this fades fast. The longer I wear this, a slight creaminess comes through which I love (this is where I begin to feel the similarity to MAC Naked Honey). A white floral peeks through making it light, a bit floral. Then the honey fades a little more (unfortunately) as the floral becomes more dominant. I am not a floral lover as most of them give me a headache. The lasting power isn’t very good and I have to reapply more than I’d like to. There isn’t much depth to it, it’s very simple and easy.
My new obsession is mixing Demeter’s fragrances! Honey pairs well with Demeter’s Patchouli. It also pairs well with Demeter’s Sandalwood. Mixing these gives Honey a more earthy/woodsy note to such a gourmand/sweet fragrance. Or should i say mixing honey into Patchouli and Sandalwood gives them a lovely sweetness. Also, if you mix the fragrances, they seems to last longer than on their own.
