OH...hehe I thought I was going to be the first one to say that this smells worse than my grandmother's old perfumes but it seems that there is a common sense on basenotes about Ginger Musk... just avoid it!
I get no ginger, no musk, and for a fraction of the cost, Rare Gold by Avon smells just like it. Almost has me wondering if sample is mislabeled.
Sickening sweet abomination. Loud, exhausting and even a tad vulgar. MEH.

Excessively sweet musk, a touch of berry, but little evidence of ginger. Definitely feminine, but not one that I would recommend.
Bright and fruity, indeed. Far too sharp and feminine for my taste, and with far too little ginger. Excellent quality ingredients, though (as with most if not all Montales), and masterful blending. Just not MY taste.
Montale really should market this one as a berry frag, and should take off the unisex appellation -- unless they're marketing it to drag queens, that is.
