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.
