    Default Fragrances that smells sweet with a ginger note?

    Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster here

    I sampled Brit the other day and I really liked the sweet and spicy opening but didn't like the powdery feel that it has. I looked up the notes for Brit, along with D&C The one (which I also like), and it turns out that the spicy note that I detect is a ginger note. I was wondering if there are any other fragrances out there with a sweet + ginger, or just sweet and spicy in general, that you guys would recommend?

    Thanks

    My favorites with ginger are Dior Homme Sport for a fresh softer scented ginger and Gucci Pour Homme (2003) for darker woods and incense with strong ginger note.

    They've already been mentioned, but from your descriptions, you are looking for L'Homme and/or Dior Homme Sport. If you are looking for a gingerbread vibe, then check out Five O`Clock Au Gingembre by Serge Lutens.

    Hugo Dark Blue to me has an interesting approach to ginger.

    Definitely Gucci Envy for men that member Ken_Russel already mentioned.
    L'eau Par Kenzo 2 is a nice off the radar scent that might fit the category.
    Lacoste Red

    I like it a lot, but as stated - no ginger - at least that I can smell.
