This time the perfume is amicable all along. It opens with a complex aromatic bouquet that says "I am not a middle-of-the-road boring perfume'. The Jamaican ginger is nicely outlined, quite tonic and sweetened by the mimosa, jasmine, rose, and geranium. The drydown finally evokes the softeness and sweeteness of honey. There are woodsy undertones to the honey and a light tea-like aroma. It is a very nice, aromatic scent. Staying power is a tad disatisfying. It feels natural. I see it as a kind of affluent middle-class hippie scent...
I think the difference here might be due to the fact that this time I tested from a bottle that was almost empty, that is, the alcohol content had evaporated somewhat and was less harsh than with a spritz coming out from a full, new bottle which is exactly what I had the last time I tested it.
It reminds me of the Ginger perfume by Origins, except this one is more complex, spicier and more aromatic. Ginger has tonic properties and so if you need to feel invigorated this is a good option, especially so since the scent is chock-full of essential oils. The perfume is composed of, " Ginger Oil (Zingiber officinale), Mimosa Absolute (Mimosa tenuiflora), Rose Oil (Rosa centifolia), Geranium Oil (Pelargonium crispum), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Juniperberry Oil (Juniperus communis), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata)."
On the Lush site, Ginger Fragrance retails for $54 for a 1.5 oz flacon.
Lush also has a Ginger Soap for $9.50, also full of essential oils, a bomb, and a powder.
