Origins – Ginger Essence (Intensified)

Perfume: Ginger Essence (Intensified)
House: Origins
Source: Macy’s, Pentagon City, VA
Size: 4mL rollerball

Notes: Ginger, Bergamot, Lemon, Lime

Date: 3/13/08 Weather: 34 degrees, way too early in the morning

Comments: Starts smelling like ginger/lemon tea. Within 5 minutes, turns sour and bitter. “Infomercial cureall” came to mind (it was obscenely early in the morning). Finally, after 30 minutes, the bitterness disappeared and it went back to ginger/lemon tea. The ginger in this is missing the floral quality that fresh ginger can have. It smells more like powdered ginger that’s been hanging in the cabinet for awhile. Gone after 2 hours.
