Origins Ginger Essence
When I woke up yesterday I turned on the news as I headed to make myself a cup of coffee. The t.v. had been on few a few seconds before they cut to the news of the terrorist attack in London. I was filled with so much anger and sorrow all day. Needless to say I didn't feel much like wearing fragrance all day and didn't apply any until I went to bed. I found myself reaching for my comfort scent, Origins Ginger Essence which always makes me feel better.
The notes in Origins Ginger Essence are: Ginger, Bergamot, Lemon and Lime
While the ginger is quite evident in this fragrance, so is the lemon. If you like the scent ofOrigins Ginger Souffle
and are trying to find that scent in a fragrance, this isn't it. For that scent try Origins Ginger Gloss
which has a much stronger ginger fragrance and the citrus is more subtle.
Other items in the ginger line at Origins feature the same scent including Ginger Burst
which has a fabulous scent in the shower but my skin doesn't retain the scent. Ginger Body Scrub
is a great salt scrub but I find leaves an oily film on my skin and Incredible Spreadable Scrub
is a softer sugar predominate scrub which washes away cleaner. I however prefer Philosophy's Gingerbread Man
which washes away very clean and is a softer but still a very effective scrub.
Ginger Essence is my comfort fragrance which is a perfect year round, all day fragrance. To change things up I'll layer it with Dragonfly Blue Amber
Ginger Essence retails for $36/1.7 oz. or $47.50/3.4 oz. at Origins
, during the holidays they come out with gift sets which include other products from the ginger line for around the same price at the fragrance alone - that is when I stock up on this scent!
