This fragrance is way, way more than the sum of its parts. Grapefruity? Yes. Gingery? Yes. But in addition, there's a musky, woody drydown that's absolutely to die for, and that lives on long after the grapefruit and ginger are but fond memories. This blend begins with sparkling green notes coupled with tart pink grapefruit, leading to a middle of ginger, rose, plum, lily, and lavender. The unusual bottom complex of white musk and fruitwood rounds the fragrance out beautifully and has amazing staying power.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would have to give this fragrance a 27! Sophisticated and upscale, yet totally likable and most definitely addictive -- I would put this fragrance up against anything even the priciest boutique brands have to offer -- yes, it's that good. Don't judge this one out of the bottle, though -- it really comes alive when you put it to use. Our Grapefruit Ginger fragrance is lovely in shampoo, shower gel, and M&P soap; pretty good in CP soap; and mind-blowingly fantastic in stay-on-the-skin applications like lotion, body butter, and perfume (haven't tried it in candles, yet, but it's most definitely compatible with wax). Flashpoint: 146º F.
