I just got a bottle of this. It's VERY nice! It's a very unique spring/summer fragrance. It's not perfumey in the least bit. It's fresh, citrusy and a little spicy. If I had to give a description of what it smells like, to me it smells like a mix of perfumed spicy froot loops with gingerale. There is just a little bit of a harsh spiciness at the beginning, but it quickly dies down and it's easy to get used to. The dry-down is even better than the initial spray most definitely! I recommend this if you like citrusy scents and something not too heavy or perfumey.
Sensational! I love this too...the citrus gives it a fresh, clean scent...the ginger gives it a bit of a kick...it's fabulous. Perfect for work or going out...
Its a great scent..but I don't get a WOW factor when I smell it...It is the perfect amount of heaviness for a perfume. Not too heavy where the scent follows you around. But not too light where it disappears. It took me a while to get used to it b/c i didn't like it at first...I still don't completely love it though.
Strong, spicy ginger with a bit of lemon. Very true to the smell when you slice the root (more so than the smell of ginger ale, IMO). It's one of those fresh, invigorating, wake-you-up scents. I find it to be unisex, clean, and completely lacking in personality. Perhaps that could be a good thing--it's not likely to offend anyone. In any case, although I love ginger in food, I'm not a big fan of it in fragrance (particularly on its own). What I would really love, actually, is a fragrance that evokes ginger ice cream (which you can find in the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory in New York City's Chinatown). There's something about the sweet creaminess of the ice cream with the spicyness of ginger which is incredibly addicting. Maybe one day I'll scrounge up $500 so that Yosh can make me a customized scent of this. Or not.
I bought the roll-on version of this. I love the fresh scent (although it *is* reminiscent of ginger ale, that's not really a bad thing) and it has good staying power on pulse points. Good stuff!
A bright and warm all-year-round scent with a cheerful lemon top note and a spicy ginger drydown. Not too strong so no need to fear over-spraying. A fragrance I imagine anyone could wear. I got the intensified version and it lasts about 3 or 4 hours on me layered over the ginger body souffle.
MMMM Ginger!!! I like this, smells wonderful, only if used sparingly. Please don't pile this on, it's strong!
I love this scent. I try other things but I go back to this. I think it is fresh and full. It is definitely an all season scent for me.
One of the very few fragrances I can wear without getting headaches or illiciting wretching noises from others. Light, fresh, intriguing...smells like sweet, good soap. So many people, like me, loathe heavy scents. There should be more fragrances like this one.
I love Ginger Essence. This fragrance lasts forever and I don't just mean on the skin. I've had a bottle for a couple of years now and it is still fresh. To me, Ginger Essence is the perfect combination of ginger and citrus (bergamot, lemon, and lime). I agree with the other reviewer that this smells just like Philosophy's Gingerbread Man Scrub (which doesn't smell like gingerbread) but Origins came out with their Ginger Essence line first!
