Demeter Fragrance is known for making one note scents that smell like pretty much anything you can think of, from pizza to dirt to a gin and tonic.

Beyonce’s not done, y’all. In addition to blessing the world with the best Christmas gift ever just a week ago, Bey — or should we call her Yonce now? — is releasing her third fragrance, called Rise, inspired by her favorite Maya Angelou poem.

I’ve been on the hunt for my signature scent ever since Ami became my perfume mentor, and I think I just found it: Pumpkin Pie Cologne from Demeter Fragrance Library.

Perfume Q&A: How Do I Find My Signature Scent?

Something you may not know about Ami is that she is a perfume junkie.

This Is The Terrifying New Fragrance From Nicki Minaj

What does Nicki Minaj smell like? Pizza, coconuts, daisies and sunshine, we bet. Whatever the smell, Nicki’s gone and unleashed a new perfume on us.

A Fragrance That’s Floral & Fancy Free!

As someone who suffers from migraine headaches, I have to be careful about what fragrances I choose to wear. To sweet and cloying, and a headache can pop up in minutes.

Wes Anderson And Roman Coppola Make Short Films For Prada

Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola are something of a movie-making dream team, and they’ve taken their quirky, manic-pixie-dream-film aesthetic and lent it to Prada for a series of advertorial vignettes.

The Scent Of Despair

I wouldn’t mind smelling like I sat around in a Paris cafe chain smoking, drinking coffee and wine and writing the most important novel of the century.

Adam Levine Launches Eponymous Fragrance Line, Boldly Compares Himself To Tom Ford

Say what you will about him, but Adam Levine has always given me a crippling case of the skeeves.
