I agree with others on how realistic this fragrance is. Its very aptly named. I realize that while its admirable such a complex array of scents can be duplicated so well, I don't want to smell like a wet garden.
With several fragrances in this line I feel the same way. Spot on and yet, I don't want to smell like Dirt for ex. There are many scents in life that are enjoyable to experince; I love how onions smell when carmelizing on the stovetop, or garlic wafting from the kitchen through the air. But while I enjoy those scents and that of a wet garden too, while i appreciate the labor and artistry that went into creating Wet Garden, ultimately I don't want to smell like one.
Btw, fragrances never last on me but this lingers eternally! Maybe its me but I would never call this scent short lived.

If you miss Laura Ashley No. 1 edt, try this, I find it very similar.

this is really expensive in the UK compared to buying it in the states. it is a lovely, fresh, green floral that really does smell like wet greenery for about a nano second. Currently using it as an expensive room spray as it lasts longer in the air - 5 seconds! Also do not get on your nails as it takes the polish right off. A complete waste of money, pity as it does smell pretty.

I love this one. It doesn't last at all though.

Would I buy this again? Maybe. I haven't made up my mind on it yet. The first few times I sprayed it, it really does smell like wet, earthy flowers with green stems full of water and slightly dirty. Lovely. But, the last two times I sprayed it it smells like a cheap, synthetic floral. I will give this more chances, as it can be sooo lovely.

This smells like hyacinth or pansies, with green stems and wet earth. Really wonderful.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Goes on as a true hyacinth fragrance, complete with dirt and stems and grass. Lovely lovely fragrance. Dries down eventually to hyacinth scented soap. Then it goes away. Never bad, but the opening is so beautiful, I wish it would last.

I love this scent, but my fav is gingerale.

This is a grassy green floral with lots of fresh flowers soaked in summer rain. It's not awfully complex, but that's Demeter for you. It is what it says it is... a wet garden. I appreciate its simplicity and find it charming and refreshing . I have actually only tested this fragrance, but am planning to purchase.

I thought this would be a fairly interesting floral scent and it is. However, it smells like the perfect floral for a guy because in addition to wet flowers, you also smell wet stems and wet ground. DH has been using the soap in the shower and I haven't heard any complaints, so he must be at least moderately happy with it. I have used it and the soap is of good quality, but I just don't like my florals to be unisex. Glad I didn't buy it in the PMU, because it would've gone BAAACK.

Out of the 20 or so Demeters that I tried for the first time, Wet Garden is the one that came home with me. (Ginger Ale was tempting, though.)
This sent is dead on, exactly evoking memories of lush green and floral gardens almost at the point of being over-ripe. It's a scent that wasn't even on my wish list, but captured the garden essence so perfectly I had to have it. Lasting power is an hour and a half or so on me but I don't care. It's my own Secret Garden!

Unlike a few other reviewers, I LOVE the floral notes in this fragrance. If all this fragrance was was the flower notes I would be spraying this on myself all day. Unfortunately, this dries down to a VERY masculine scent. I can't really place what the note is, but it smells exactly like my grandfather's cologne. Not exactly sexy!
Definitely will not be wearing this again. Maybe it would be ok as a room spray, though.

This is my first Dementer cologne. It smells of flower (rather muted) but what amazed me is it smells exactly when you stepped on those brown fallen leaves that started to decompose a bit in autumn after a rainfall. Good for self-indulgence, not for going out though.

ok, I was so curious about Demeter scents after reading so much about them on MUA. I am currently trying out several of the 1/2 oz bottles. I was so excited about this one. I love the name. Hmmm. I just don't know. As someone says below, it smells EXACTLY like a flower shop refrigerator, like where roses are kept. Which is not exactly a bad thing. I think if you ever worked in a flower shop and had good memories of it, then you would LOVE this smell - me, I never did and I am not so sure. I kept sniffing wrist - wanting so much to love this. I don't hate or love it, I am just rying to think of one good reason I would want to smell like this. I keep thinking, if I were young and dating, would I want to wear this on a date? I think it would really go in one direction or another - the guy would love it or he would think you were really strange. Let me get back to you on this. Right now, I am just confused about my feelings for this smell!

This does smell like a wet garden, a garden with mostly flowers with a little green, after it rains, or when it's dewy in the real early morning. It's a light green flowery scent like new spring plants, and some how clean smelling. I don't usually go for too many flowery scents but I like this one, it's a comforting scent.
Like all Demeter's it disappears on the skin pretty fast, but if you spray your clothes it lasts for hours.

This is one of my least favorite demeters. I expected it to be more grassy and have some vegetable notes in it, but it's mostly floral. I also detected an underlying note of what to me smells like bark mulch. I love weird woody scents like bark mulch, but I hate the floral main notes.

I was expecting a greener, fresher smell, this is too floral for my taste. Smells like a wet garden all right, but a garden packed with strongly smelling flowers :) Did not fade fast on my skin, and actually smelled better after a couple of hours when the floral notes were not so dominant.

Blech! This scent turns on me and smells like unwashed armpits. And unlike other Demeter scents, this one lingers and lingers and lingers and (you get the picture) Who wants to smell like B.O. all day? Not me.

This is my favorite Demeter fragrance so far. Smells so fresh and natural. Great for Spring! Not really long lasting, but it's cheap enough to spritz on throughout the day.

This came to mind since I just wrote reviews on a couple of "dirt" frags: Dzing and Jazz Funeral. Wet Garden is similar to Jazz Funeral without being so morbid and depressing. Wet Garden is just as oppressive though; I mean, the temperate zone garden this scent seems to evoke is so laden with fresh rain that you can feel the weight of that water! You can even smell the fresh mud on the ground. You want to get out of that weighty mud too.
I won't wear or buy it, but it's great showmanship. I can't fit these novelty scents into my frag life. Wet Garden sure is interesting, but there's just too many beautiful yet interesting scents out there, and I like repetition. But - I can see how these scents would make great, and sometimes humorous and touching, gifts. This might make a great gift for a gardener, especially if they're from the Pacific NW, NE, or Europe. And come to think of it, I did get a bottle of Demeter Kahala Papaya for my mom because she loved the smell of papayas. I also got a Liberty Fizz for her since it has tomato notes and she loved tomatoes. She wouldn't wear them though!
