weak imitation of Origins Ginger Essence
Two of my favorite - and most-worn - scents are Origins Ginger Essence (still widely available in the US - $59 for 100 ml at Sephora) and Crabtree & Evelyn Sarawak (long-discontinued - about $100 for 100 ml on eBay). Both combine warm ginger and cool citrus in a beautifully balanced way that I find suitable for almost any time and almost any temperature. (Sarawak is a bit more complex, with notes of rice and ginseng easily detectable.) Compagnia delle Indie's Ginger Dust (Polvere di Zenzero) lists significantly more notes than the other two (10 to GE's 4 and Sarawak's 7), but it smells significantly less balanced and sophisticated than either of them. Ginger Dust also has extremely weak sillage. It's pure ginger, detectable only at 3" for an hour or so. It's cheaper than either of the others (when you can find it in the US), but isn't worth it if you have to pour it on constantly and don't enjoy as good a smell when you do.
