From Goodreads: Like Charlotte Gilman's Herland or Joanna Russ's The Female Man, The Demeter Flower is the story of a female utopia. Singer imagines an entire society created and governed by women who have survived the violent collapse of late-twentieth-century patriarchal society by withdrawing to their own village and guarding their newly-discovered secret of parthenogenesis/5(12). A first novel about a lesbian paradise—which, short on imagination, reads a lot like overheard random conversations in a gay bar. The demeter flower dried and brewed as tea induces pregnancy and female offspring, thus enabling the women of the hidden valley of Demeter (in California northeast of Berkeley) to keep their civilization going through parthenogenesis.

I sing of rich-haired Demeter, lady of the glorious fruits, Of her and her trim-ankled daughter Persephone First of all to travel the roads of the Bardos to the land of death and back. Persephone was playing with the deep-bosomed daughters of Oceanus And gathering flowers over a .   Demeter's Basic Story: Persephone is snatched by Hades; Demeter searches for her but can't find her, and finally stops all life from growing on the earth.

I recognize those sharp, alto-resinous, wild-green notes – they smell very relaxing to me. And since this is a review of a Demeter fragrance, that’s about the only point there is to discuss.
