    Default ginger fragrances

    When I got up this morning, I grabbed my Mona di Orio Vetyver to wear. It got me thinking, I really like her use of ginger in it. It dries the juicy vetiver down. Any other fragrances that make good use of ginger?

    Dior Homme Sport - not a thing like the original and not my cup of tea, but well put together and BIG on the ginger.

    There's a nice touch of fresh ginger in amongst the verbena / lemongrass accord in Mito EDP (Vero Kern) that reminds me of a terrific Thai drink that uses these ingredients. It's set in a predominantly green backdrop, one of the best new releases of this last year IMO.

    I also get a sense of freshly sliced ginger (which can be quite sweet and tart at the same time) in Myrrhe et Delires (Guerlain) and Interlude Woman (Amouage) - the two are quite similar to me, I wore them both a lot last summer and they work well in tropical heat - but whether you or anyone else would perceive it as ginger is anybody's guess

    I really like ELdO's Like This, a very dry ginger/immortelle with a neroli opening. Some describe it as having a pumpkin note, which I don't really get, although there is a spicy vetiver that might account for the rooty/spice thing. Anyway, an unusual perfume altogether and a really nice ginger.

    Maitre Parfumeur's Eau pour le jeune Homme Extravagante (a flanker to the traditional Jeune Homme) features a very realistic and dominant ginger note all through its development.

    Is there a scent which keeps the initial opening of YSL L'Homme Gingembre throughout? I love the opening but it quickly disappears into a nondescript ozonic fragrance.

    If you want "dessert" Ginger, cannot beat 5 O'clock au Gingembre

    For sharp, tangy refreshing Ginger, Declaration Cologne beats Dior Homme Sport hands down.

    This sounds great. How's the longevity on this?
