    Default Eau de Sisley 3 (does the red ginger note stay)?

    Hi I was testing this fragrance yesterday and loved the opening top notes, especially the red ginger. However as the time wore on I only detected this scent coming and going at intervals. Does anyone else have problems discerning this delicious note continuously?

    In my opinion its the best part of the scent but whether or not it stays will determine whether I make a future purchase.

    Posts here at BN state that these scents are fleeting. "Too light for my tastes", "Very light for the price", "overpriced for what they are", etc.

    Well it is marketed as a cologne, which inherently are fleeting and light - right?

    No 3 is the one from the trio that has excellent longevity on me (7 hours).
    Its reminds me of L'eau Bleue d'Issey.
    I personally have no trouble with this ginger note or discerning it. I would probably snag a bottle if they weren't 850 Danish kroner a pop!

    No 3 is my favourite of the three, it had good staying power but I remember that after the heart notes , the only lingering build of the fragrance left consisted of a lemonyish citrusy drydown which was pleasing but where was the red ginger!!! When I first sniffed the scent, that note stuck with me giving the fragrance an ethereal oriental twist with the already citrusy back drop. Awesome. Maybe I should give it another full on test before buying it.
