Reviews of Gingembre

On its own, ginger oil smells flat and dry, not so much like the root and not very interesting, so Jacques Cavallier built on this core material by extending it in a variety of ways.

Gingembre is called an eau but it isn't a citrus - its no heat busting fresh cologne. It is however, warm, balsamic and lightly spiced which makes it feel like an old fashioned Eau de Cologne Ambrée given a make over.

Not bad but it doesn't last.

Light neroli that starts out slightly soapy upon initial spray. Very little ginger in this one folks. This will rock in the summer though. A hint of florals and light musk make for a decent fragrance. Projection and longevity are below average. 7/10

Ginger symphony

The ginger notes are elegant, light and fresh - helped by bergamot and neroli - but sufficiently complex with some development on my skin. The base is dull and boring though. A light scent for ginger lovers with the ginger being well done. Limited image and projection with three hours of longevity. For warmer weather this is a nice composition.

In agreement with the 5 previous reviewers that this is a pleasing wearable scent. Eau de Gingembre conjures up no foody visions of little men decorated with jelly drops, but it does have a certain crispness in its spicy warmth that makes it very refreshing on a hot day and has enough body to last 2-3 hours on my skin (which is better than some very highly priced Eaux) Totally unisex.

I don't get much ginger and what I do get is a fresh ginger (as opposed to a warm ginger biscuit scent, for example), but it is very nice. I can smell a warm orangey citrus and the drydown reminds me of orange butter icing!

i love this scent. high quality, clean, crisp, ginger citrus with hints of musk at the drydown. truly enjoyable and wearable by all.
i wish this lasted longer, like summer.
