Reviews of Five O'Clock Au Gingembre

From my shallow simple guy reviews:

This smells like bubbled out cocacola.

Take a can of Cola, drink most of it - leave the rest on the sun, and smell it after half hour - that's it! :)
...pretty cool.
Longevity is moderate. Definitely unisex.

A warm cashmere hug at teatime in winter. Love it.

It smells like a sweet ginger and lemon tea. It doesn’t smell bad, of course, but it’s not good enough for the price. An eau de Cologne with a twist. A bit too simple, especially for the price. Demeter makes the same.

First freeze? Trees giving up their leaves? Wanna take a break from your BFF leathery mossy chypres? Well then, it's time for tea! Yep, a little tea with your ginger.

Tea, cinnamon, ginger, and honeyed amber with a slight dash of pepper. The ginger eventually bows and leaves the light but not the stage, so if you have problems with ginger...

Turn that SL calendar page and you'll find Serge Noire. Apply some chapstick and enjoy a clove cigarette. Similarities abound.

I cannot warm up to Serge Luten's take on tea and ginger, because of a couple of points - 1) The candied ginger note overpowers others and causes an imbalance in my experience, and 2) It is too sweet for me, considering its style. I would have preferred a stronger focus on tea, which is absent. My overall impression is of a sweet ginger scent. Now, I always associate and love ginger in fresh scents, which is not the case here. I don't particularly get any prominent patchouli, but more of a woody-musky accord that hints at amber and patchouli. Another issue I have with it is that the second half of its lifespan is unreasonably dull compared to what came before. Sillage is low key but persistent, and duration is adequate at about five to six hours.

Yes, it is perhaps one of the nicer abstract gourmands, but Five O'Clock Au Gingembre simply doesn't click personally, and I also rate several other abstract gourmands ahead of it, including Borneo 1834 from Serge Lutens.
