I enjoy spraying this anytime of the year.
-As soon as you spray it: it smells like freshly cut lime, orange, lemon and a hint of ginger. Very citrusy.
-About 5 min later: it dries to a soft, clean smell of ginger and a hint of orange. Still citrusy but more soft.
-About 30 min later: Still a soft ginger and orange smell. Not overpowering. Very nice.
-About 4 hours later: Not much of the scent left, when you smell you can tell that you put it where ever (in my case on my wrist). But I can no longer smell it hardly.
One of my favorite fragrances! You can wear it year round. It reminds me of Christmas because it stimulates warmth for me. But it's light enough for summer. I always get compliments on its rich but subtle scent.
I cannot believe there are not more great reviews of this product-I think I'm giving away a secret here, but guys go CRAZY and I mean CRAZY for this scent. Guys have stopped me dead in my tracks to comment on this scent more times than I can count. Guys with girlfriends have asked me several times the name of this to make sure they didn't forget it.
The scent I wore prior to this that guys love and recognize is Michael Kors, but at the least from the 2 guys I know very well-Origins Ginger has surpassed Michael Kors.
Girls, go get this, trust me!
Does smell like Ginger but I got sick of it, too sweet??? Also way overpriced (at least here in NZ)
I had been wanting to sample this, so I went to my local Origins shop to smell it. I sprayed it on my arm which was a huge mistake. Initially, I didn't have any negative feelings about the smell, but about 1 minute later I asked my boyfriend to take a sniff and he hit the nail on the head with his description of Ginger Essence - bathroom cleaner. It was unusual for him since he usually loves every fragrance I happen to sample. This stuff really does smell like lemon scented Pine-Sol upon first application. Fortunately, by the time I got home from shopping, the smell had slightly died down, but was still entirely offensive smelling. They should call this fragrance 'Clean Bathroom' since that is exactly what I smelled like after spraying this.
I love Ginger Essence. It is truly an original fragrance -- it is fresh, yet spicy, warm yet calming. With that said, this scent is the perfect year round everyday fragrance... It is crisp and fresh on a warm sunny day, but it also makes you feel warm and cozy on cold/rainy days. It should be a classic! I love the frosted bottle and the drydown is as divine as the first whiff. I love everything about it! Definitely 5 lippies! And yes I will definitely repurchase.
I like this fragrance as its unusual compared to all of the other perfumes being marketed at this time. It is a soft fragrance and unfortunately doesn't last all that long, but I don't really care for overpowering scents. An original ginger scented fragrance, definitely worth trying if that is your thing.
This smell is just amazing. The SA sprayed a bit on me when I was getting makeup, and I kept smelling a light breeze of it in the afternoon and could not get enough! I had to go back the next day and buy the bottle plus the roll-on. It's amazing- heavenly, light, fresh and I adore it! Smells so natural, and she said it's meant to bring out your own natural scent and it does.
Another 5 stars!
I love this fragrance! I am disappointed that there is not an Origins counter within in reasonable driving distance, but when I was out there today I purchased this. I usually have difficulty with fragrances and migraines, but this one did not bother me. It is a nice, clean scent, one that would be great for work as it does not appear to be offensive. I purchased the rollerball, as it will be easy to throw in my bag. I will repurchase!
While watching QVC early this morning getting ready for work, they offered a 1.7 oz. of GE spray. I have this, I thought, and immediately opened my not-used-in-a-while scent dresser drawer which I created to hold my enormous collection of fragrances. There it was, my very own GE. It was perfect for a slightly warm November day with thoughts of Thanksgiving next week. GE has that "heaviness" of ginger and spice but is actually quite light. I just can't see wearing this during the dog days of summer though.
I just love it when I see something I already own, especially on QVC.
