Reviews of Ginger

If you like white musks and powdery soapy scents, you may like this, but try it before you buy to see if the ginger smells as synthetic on your skin as it did on mine. If you are looking for a bright clean single note scent, this is not it.

On me, it has a sweet perfumey /synthetic gingery-ness to start then immediately fades to a very cloying scented powder smell. A pleasant, slightly soapy-fizziness kicks in somewhere. After about 10 minutes this smells exactly like those big round containers of perfumed talcum body powder with a giant powder puff that my grandmother used to get from Avon and keep next to the bathtub. Not what I was expecting.

As the other positive reviews state, this is nothing like gingerbread or ginger cake. lt's warm, dry, spicy, aromatic ginger, not the sweet kind. There's just a hint of floral notes to give it a soft sensuality. lt's addictive, has great sillage & longevity, & makes a perfect winter scent.

This is actually not a bad fragrance. It smells a bit hippy, and it's a lot of fun. I wouldn't call it a serious fragrance, nor do I think it is meant to be. The Ginger scented creme is much better smelling than the EDT in my opinion.

Very true, long-lasting, well balanced dry ginger - excellent for days when sweet candy scents won't do, or for when travel or stress have got the better of you. I like to take the dusting powder or lotion with me on trips away; they are grounding and calming somehow.

(P.S. this is available again through Lush Retro in UK at least).

Ginger by Lush is the ultimate fragrance for the retro siren in you. In my opinion not even the description on their own site does it justice. Maybe this is why it was discontinued, because people expected it to smell like gingerbread or fruit, but Ginger is nothing like that. This is a sensual fragrance made to unleash your inner Bardot, Cardinale or other favourite retro beauty.

The scent kicks off with aromatic ginger root (forget about ginger cookies- this is not it) and then morphs into a smoldering pale rose wrapped in a seductive smoke. Ginger is so French/dirty pink/boudoir…. There’s nothing innocent about it, except maybe for the bottle which could use a makeover. This is a beautiful creation and such an addictive fragrance that deserves a big comeback in a pretty, old-fashioned bottle with pump. (think their own Coctail or Love).

If you're not lucky enough to find/win Ginger on ebay, you can always join the race for discontinued products on lush.co.uk. ("retro Lush"). If enough people show interest, Lush is going to make Ginger for all the retro souls out there who order it.... If they dont bring it back, I’m going to get seriously depressed. *le sigh*

PS. Ginger is 100% vegan, and contains a good amount of pure essential oils.

No, not ginger oil - I've tried that!
The ginger note is warmer, more balanced with the juniper berry and rose.
