Reviews of Gingembre

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.

I usually don’t care for a strong ginger note in fragrances. I love the use of ginger in Eau de Gengembre. It is gentle and refreshing. The opening is light and citrusy with a pleasant element of Japanese ginger: Apparently the whole plant – leaves, flowers, and root – is used for the ginger note. The ginger strength does get a bit stronger with the heart, and it is sweetened a tiny bit by ambrette: This heart accord is as balanced, refined, and delicate as the opening. For the drydown, the ginger is almost exhausted, but it does leave a sharpness that wouldn’t be there if there were no ginger. The drydown is almost sweet, musky, and short lasting. I love the refreshingly light ginger ambiance of this fragrance. It is especially welcome on those muggy days that are so prevalent here. Of course, since it is an Eau, so it doesn’t last very long, but its reasonable price allows for frequent touch ups. I love this one.

Fragrance notes: citrus, ginger, “oriental flowers”, musk
This is an attractive eau de cologne, very much in the R&G style. In my opinion, that means a somewhat under-rated performer, quite competent if not brilliant. R&G’s in my experience don’t have a lot of initial flash but with a couple of sturdy applications they quietly maintain well all day. The florals here are lovely and so is the musk dry-down. There is nothing so pretty or sweet here that keeps me from wearing it. My one caveat is that there is nothing “gingery” about this scent. No spice, no crisply acidic tones or tangy wood notes that are found in freshly-sliced ginger. I think that is a hard note to render in a scent but it would be great to find.
