Thread: favorite ginger scent...
As I spritzed on Mona di Orio's Vetyver this morning I was hit as always by the most delicious wet ginger smell. What fragrances do you enjoy that have ginger as a prominent note?
Gucci Envy for Men
Serge Lutens Five O'clock Au Gingembre
Noir by Christian Lacroix
Ginger by Gorilla Perfumes.

Dior Homme Sport.
Cartier Declaration Cologne
I haven't tried enough which is a shame as it is a favourite note of mine. I'd probably give it to Dior Homme Sport 2008. Gucci Envy isn't bad and also Beckham Homme has a nice ginger note.
L'Homme and Dior Homme Sport
I would go with Burberry Brit as well.
Another for Dior Homme Sport.
Ted Baker Endurance. Extremely hard to find right now, but I think that makes it that much more lovely.
+1 Serge Lutens Five O'clock Au Gingembre
Canadians: I would like to trade for a decant of The 3rd Man by Caron. PM me.
Dior Homme Sport

ELDO Like This.
Garner James Cathedral in Flames
+1 Demeter Gingerale, slight but fun, with fizz and citrus on a ginger topnote (and not much else).
Also check out Roger et Gallet, Gingembre, my favorite ginger cologne.
Another fragrance with a very nice ginger note is Chillum by Abdessalaam.
Ginger is good.
Sans parfum, la peau est muette.

Chanel Bois des Iles.
Dior Homme Sport.
My very favourite is Five O'clock Au Gingembre, but I have Declaration Cologne and Brit, want Envy, and like Origins Ginger Essence and Kenzo Homme Sport. L'Homme is pleasant but not all that interesting. DHS is not as good as the Cartier or the Kenzo.
