Mystery Cologne/Perfume and Giveaway!

Hello readers!

Exciting news: I will be doing a mystery cologne/perfume giveaway with this blog post, as described in the title, “Mystery Cologne/Perfume an Giveaway”.

You are probably wondering now…

“why is this cologne/perfume a mystery?” – to be discussed below.

“is this another beauty product that required a lick test?” – no, not this time…can’t fool me twice.

“is Lucy still single?” – yes, very much so.

The mystery behind the Mountain Air fragrance from Demeter is that it doesn’t really smell like mountain air.


I gathered a panel of experts, and asked them for their opinion but we couldn’t reach a consensus. Here’s some background info on the panelists I have carefully selected:

Lucy Y: a babe magnet. Sometimes drools in her sleep. Currently upset that her watch ran out of batteries. Has yet to replace the batteries.

Tori G: Matt’s friend and ex-roommate (more on Matt below) who comes to visit every so often. Can be seen buried under a mound of pillows and covers, while reading or napping on our couch during various weekends. Common conversation topics with Tori include whether she can get away with not wearing a bra in public without anyone noticing (usually no), and Caffrey, our favourite hamster. Tori also brought me and Matt a free tub of sherbet!


This deserved its own (very blurry, dark and poorly taken) photo.

Stephanie L: beauty expert and my peer review partner for mock accounting exams. Interests include Charles (her bae), Charles’s butt (also one of my interests), and daily two-hour naps. Steph has a rigorous, potentially unparalleled, napping regime.

Lisa H: she refused to give me a description of her interests, on the basis that we’ve been friends for five years. Wears a lot of black. Likes to eat pizza. Has flat feet.

Matt L: my roommate. Diet consists of Soylent and protein powder, spinach, chicken breast seasoned with Montreal style spice, Greek yogurt, and popcorn. Can be found lifting heavy things at the gym, coding or playing computer games. Other interests include girls, the Office and frisbees. Spotted in his natural environment wearing plaid pajama pants and a t-shirt, or plaid pajama pants and no shirt. Has a habit of leaving his alcohol at various people’s apartments when we go out to socialize.

And here are our thoughts on Mountain Air, from Demeter:

Lucy Y: kind of like outdoors. But musky.

Tori G: Hmm….flowers and laundry detergent.

Steph L: It used to smell bad [in her first smell test], but now it smells clean [second smell test].

Lisa H: Eww, that’s what smells so bad around here. It smells like a sweaty man.

Matt G:  …I don’t know. *looks at label*. Smells like Mountain Air.

So there you have it. Our collective recommendation is if you want to smell like a sweaty man who does his laundry regularly, and also spends a lot of time outdoors tending to flowers in the mountains, the Mountain Air fragrance from Demeter is for you!

Now for the give-away part. The first person who likes this post, comments on this post indicating they would like to receive the cologne/perfume and is able to meet me in Waterloo can receive the 1.0 fl oz (30 ml), almost completely full container of Mountain Air for free! I usually don’t wear scents, and when I do, I prefer to smell like warm cotton. Clean laundry is my favourite scent 🙂

*edit: after reading this blog post, Matt gave me an ultimatum and said “it’s either Charles’s butt or my butt. You have to decide.” More to come on my decision in future blog posts.*
