Hey beauties! It’s been FOREVER, this I know. So I’m really excited to share with you this new scent by Demeter! Introducing:
If you’ve ever wondered what Moet Chandon would smell like as a perfume, wonder no more. Champagne Brut, let’s you know. I was very eager to give this a go, as Champagne is one of my favorite things to sip on. (Yes, I know. It’s an expensive habit. Don’t judge.)
Not quite in time for New Years, but just in time for my weekend trip to Revel, Champagne Brut was in my weekender for a few spritz. Friday night finally came and with it, my hot pink short dress and black heels, and a few pumps of the new scent. Surely wearing Champagne to a club was appropriate, yes?
I asked a few of the girls if they wanted to give it a try too. They didn’t have to know I was reviewing this product and would spill their opinions! (anonymously of course!)
Instantly the room filled with a scent I knew all too well. One girl smiled and said “Oh this smells just like champagne!” I gave a smirk, with a bit of a chuckle, explained Demeter’s purpose and listened to a bit of a 5 minute ramble about how she wonders what STEAK would smell like as a scent. She was quickly dismissed with a “I’m sure you’ll find out over dinner.”
Two friends both inhaled the scent going “mmmm,” sprayed on some more and hoped it would last all night or at the very least, increase as the body temperature did the same. (That’s what happens when yourub up on a guy all nightdance)
I wondered as well, so I put on a little more. Remember, it is winter and your skin is a little tougher this season, so spraying on extra for a long-lasting wear is in order! Who needs the cold taking away a layer or two of your perfume?!
We headed out the door and on to the dance floor. This is where my observation began.
I noticed by the time I got to the club (which was only 2 floors down) my Champagne Brut had lost its fizz. Dare I say, gone flat?! YOWZA!!! No bueno.
I was NOT a happy camper. But maybe not all hope was lost. I decided to ask the girls by the end of the night how their spritzes were holding up. Their responses:
1. “It wore off after the first song!”
2. “It’s not long lasting enough for such a strong scent.”
3. “The dude I made out with liked the scent.” (This received the side eye followed by my proclaiming ‘that dude would of said he liked your perfume if you dabbed tuna behind the ears. He just wanted to
get in your pants kiss you.)
4. “It doesn’t have any staying power. I’d have to keep the bottle on me to reapply throughout the night.”
Well, who wants to tote a bottle of perfume everywhere?
After a few laughs and some sips of real champagne, we polished off the night with a couple of rounds of “ring and run” on random floors (the room doors had doorbells) then went to bed.
With all this said, let me get to the meat and potatoes of this review. Here it is, straight and to the point:
Perfume: 2.5 out of 5 sugar cubes
Scent Match to Champagne: 4 out of 5 sugar cubes
Longevity: 0.5 out of 5 sugar cubes
Packaging: 4 out of 5 sugar cubes
Buy as a gift: no
Suggest to a friend: no
With all due respect, from a perfume lover… go back to the drawing board with this one. If Demeter could nail the longevity with scents like Lavender, Lilac, Jasmine and Red Poppies, even something as light as their Clean Soap, then this Champagne Brut should be no exception.
