I love to cook with ginger and basically love everything ginger. This is why I decided to give this particular fragrance a try. From the bottle I got an overwhelming note of ginger which I thought was promising. This fragrance is not perfumed and has a true to life scent of ginger. It contains other notes to make the fragrance more complex, but overall ginger is the dominate note. I really enjoyed this fragrance. I smell the candles and it reminds of making Thai food and enjoying summer. I kind of what to eat my candles.
