“ Brand: Lush / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette „
I love perfumes and I love Lush so I have been trying to sample all their perfumes and luckily online you can still purchase the back catalogue of perfumes that aren't available in stores anymore. I have tried most of them now with I think only one to go and the majority of them have been fabulous.
My favourite way to sample them is with the solid perfumes. I find these offer the best value. If I really really like a perfume from Lush then I will buy the spray but because these are quite expensive I save that for only my very favourites and use the solid perfume to try them out.
Ginger is one that I have tried as a solid perfume and although I thought it was nice it wasn't one that I liked enough to buy as a perfume spray as it just wasn't as nice as some of the other perfumes available from Lush but this is purely because I am not as keen on the fragrance of this one and it doesn't have anything to do with the quality which is just as good as the rest of the perfumes.
Ginger is not one of my favourite smells so I was hesitant to try this but as I had made it my mission to try all the perfumes I had to get it to try.
The perfume has ginger as its main base ingredient but it also has loads of other ingredients to offset the ginger such as rose, mimosa, jasmine, ylang ylang and geranium.
The ginger smell is the most dominant but you can also smell the florals which is actually a nice combination. The spiciness is further offset by some sweetness and it is lovely. I applied this in the usual way of putting it on my wrists and neck pulse points and it was fragrant for a few hours at a time. The solid perfume is a great way of using the perfume as it is stronger than you might think but it is also subtle enough to be enjoyed without being over powering. I enjoyed using this as a solid perfume but I think that the spray would be too strong for me and the ginger might be a bit more overpowering which is why I wouldn't purchase it.
If you like ginger then this is the one for you as it is really good quality and the ginger is less artificial than some other ginger smells in products I have smelt. It isn't the perfume for me but that doesn't mean I don't think it is good as it is and is actually a nice fragrance where all the ingredients work well to complement each other.
