Ninja Shooting Star
"Zeste de Gingembre" by Heeley is another (full) hit from the brand, buying amazing new sharp and spicy facets to the citrusy Summergame.

Ginger rarely ends up in my shopping basket, and only very sparingly in food. Also at the Sushiband I always leave it out. Fragrances, however, the tangy, dominant and very own root plant can give a distinct spicy kick. And "Zeste de Gingembre" is probably the lone reference for that as of now. Because too often the tuber or its smell doesn't find its way into fragrances anyway. "Dior Homme Sport" from 2012 or Guerlain's "Ginger Piccante" mentioned as exceptions. "Zeste de Gingembre" is but almost a league of its own in its ginger expression.

Combined with a sparkling lime, a green-sunny cocktail vibe spreads that I find hard to resist. Clears the nose and rounds the soul, makes worries small and personal weather beautiful. Spicy, special, slightly mentholated or minty, soothing tea-like, yet refreshing to no end. Very different from its citrus competitors on the market. Heeley has once again done a great job.

Flacon: minimalist stylish
Durability: 6 hours are good for a citrusy summer freshener.
Sillage: narrow and without riverbank

Verdict: a tangy lime cocktail with zing, bite and fizz. The ginger is here just delicious - even if you are otherwise rather skeptical of him!

not a standout among ginger-citrus scents
This is a pretty and well-balanced ginger-citrus, but ginger-citrus scents are in a crowded field. I find it a bit masculine -- could be the black pepper. There's also a note I can't place that reminds me of old-fashioned (and lovely) Palmolive soap. It fades significantly after an hour.

As a woman, I don't find this to be worth it when the Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante is so much cheaper (USD $60 or so for 125 ml on eBay vs. $180 for 100 ml at Luckyscent) and I find it more elegant and lively. I guess this may be more of interest for men who find other ginger-citrus scents too feminine or for those who only want to buy niche scents.

Mr McSauber in the ballet with light-hearted spice
The balanced composition, which Heeley is quite used to, exists from the beginning.

The nose says, hmm, interesting note with clean, partly light tones, I arrange the composition in terms of colour with clear to white, but not pure white and linear but decorated with a veil, pastel tones interspersed with spicy aromas.

After a few minutes it becomes spicier, slightly spicier. The ginger enters the parquet floor. However, the appearance is not a fulminant one, Mr McIngwer is rather British, one may assume a certain peculiarity in the interplay with other fine aromas, but no fulminance or even dominance.

This was the first prank, the next one is observed, says the nose, classical radio lounge sounds greet from the ear and I lean back on the November sofa.

With Heeley, on first spray I often think "too simple" but then find myself coming back again & again. Clarity of ideas. Quality ingredients

Citrius open that surprisingly connect very well with the ginger on the heart. High quality ingredients, perfect for hot weather.
