“I am a fan of ginger in perfume, so was interested to try Ginger Zest de Citron. This fragrance is quite unique, in that it pairs the ginger and citrus with other spices, so it becomes quite gourmand while retaining a fairly transparent quality. The citrus feels more bitter than bright, and is a nice counterpoint to the spicy warmth of the ginger. The sillage is comforting, and I am wafting an air that reminds me of a fragrant curry. However, it isn’t so foody that you wouldn’t want to wear it. If you enjoy that type of spice aroma, this is a good one for you. I’m finding it quite pleasing on a chilly day, but it will be interesting to see what it will do in heat.”  – Tama Blough, CaFleureBon

    To me this one is all about being a ginger-citrus-floral fragrance. I kinda want to eat it.

    The ginger hangs throughout, but the lemon fades somewhere in the middle. Have you ever had a fragrance where the citrus notes at the beginning are still there in the base? I haven’t.

    Sandalwood is my favorite of the woodies, and it comes along in a couple of hours and stays, so when this happens I love it even more.

    It lasted 24 hours on me, projection was average.

    GINGER ZEST DE CITRON, BY PK PERFUMES (by Cassiano Silva – Perfumart)
    Before describing the fragrance, I need to explain to my Brazilian readers the meaning of the word zest. Many people don’t know that the word refers to grated rinds, usually from citrus fruits, and are much used in perfumery.
    On the top of this creation, we can find Ginger and zesty citruses (Kumquat, orange and Kaffir Lime – cited in the review of Zaffran, which is a citrus with origin in Galician lemon), Bergamot Mint, Lemon Eucalyptus and also some spices including a very light dose of curry. In the heart, Mimosa Absolute, Ginger Lily (Hedychium family), Gardenia, Freesia, several Jasmines, Orange Blossom, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Spikenard. At the base, sandalwood, vetiver, musks and leather.
    The output is divine! If you think you will find a citrus fragrance of Italian style, you’re wrong. It’s like a drink made with juices of citrus fruits and semi-sparkling type of drink. The eucalyptus and the Mint mix, with a lot of harmony, with the citrus nuances. But it’s the curry that gives the special touch, no doubt. Shortly thereafter, the mimosa Absolute is, like the name says, absolute. I love this smell! And even though there are various types of jasmine in the composition, they didn’t bother me. On the contrary, they were very soft on my skin. In this part of evolution, the mimosa and the orange flower stood out. After about 2 hours, the fragrance loses the citric acidity and becomes fruity, with a soft base of sandalwood and a note of leather, which is only noticed if subjected to heat.
    But in order to avoid being accused of only compliment the creations of the House, I do a critique: the projection is very weak. This type of scent, so well made and easy to please, deserved a stronger projection, which is common in other creations of Paul Kiler. Putting this part aside, the lasting passes 8 hours, although close to the skin.
    For fans of the aroma and the taste of citrus drinks, here’s the drink that your skin needs.
