The opening on this frag was ok, sweet and mellow like a good ginger beer or maybe even crystallised ginger, but nothing like the fiery cut ginger root I was hoping for. Within minutes it had morphed into a dull soapy musk, and an hour later my arm smells very very faintly of bubble gum where I sprayed it. Sillage was non existent from the get-go. I was excited at the thought of a warm, earthy ginger fragrance, but this most certainly is not it. Disappointing.
