    Default 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?

    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.

    The very realistic Demeter Gingerale, complete with fizz.

    +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.

    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.
