      A lovely summery fresh scent

      This is number 2 of the 5 perfumes my mum picked up for a bargain of £2 each at a boot sale recently, I have already reviewed the pink pepper and grapefruit variant and this is from the same range.

      Price and Availability
      Again these are not widely available in the shops in the UK but you can easily get hold of it online on Amazon. They come in 3 sizes 50ml 75ml and 170ml but I could only find the 50ml and 170ml in stock in this variant. They were priced at £12.95-£15.85 for the 50ml and £18.95-£23.15 for the 170ml.
      You can also get matching Shower gel for £15.46, body oil for £15.85 and hand wash for £11.14. So I think the 170ml cologne is good value but I wouldn't be splashing out on the extras.

      Packaging
      Again this one didn't have the box with it when it was bought but they are meant to come in a box. The bottle is very similar to the Grapefruit and Pink pepper one, it is gorgeous cut glass that's looks really luxurious with a yellow and gold sticker on the front stating that is it 'no 4711 Acqua Colonia Lemon and Ginger and then there are some translation' There is a gold lid and a yellow and gold sticker seal running from the lid to the bottle. I love how simple and classic the bottles are they have a real vintage glamour to them.

      Fragrance
      This is another very light fragrance and is very citrusy and fresh the lemon is clear and crisp when you first put it on and I can't personally smell the ginger until the lemon fades a little then I get a hint of spice. This is something I don't mind as it keeps you being able top smell it as the scent changes. I love how clean these fragrances are they give you such a refreshing feeling when wearing them.

      Strength and longevity
      This is a very mild fragrance that is only noticeable close up but it can be layered well like the grapefruit and pink pepper version to give a stronger scent. The lemon doesn't last all that long maybe an hour or two but the remaining ginger does last a lot longer, probably double around 2-4 hours which I think is ok as you are getting a lot for your money and I am happy to reapply if needed.

      Overall
      Another 4 star for the 4711 range, this is a lovely summery fresh scent and the bottle is beautiful and it is also good value for money, if you want to splash out there are also plenty of extras to go with it.
