A New Twist on an Old Favourite: Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge

Hey Ladies,

I hope you're all well. Today's post is a new offering from a brand favourite of mine, Roger & Gallet. It's no secret to you all that I just adore R&G, I really believe that when it comes to the fine art of fragrance, they can do no wrong. Gingembre Rouge is no exception!

It's hard to believe that the original Gingembre has been around for eleven years. Gingembre is definitely one of my all time favourites from the Roger & Gallet range. I cannot count the amount of people I have bought it for as a gift or recommended to someone. Everyone seems to love it and with good reason! When I heard that R&G were launching a new version of an old favourite, I just new I'd love it, no questions asked, and happily, I do!

To me, if the original Gingembre and Gucci II EDP had a baby, you would get Gingembre Rouge. Not a bad combo right? Top notes in this beauty are ginger, mandarin, and pomegranate, middle notes of litchi, mandarin blossom, and ginger blossom, and base notes of cedar, candied ginger and white musk. So you have the holy trinity of ginger, mixed with some fabulously citrus notes, and what you get is the most exquisite explosion on your sense of smell, which allows you to envision yourself strolling aimlessly through a spice souk on a warm day somewhere far far away.

Really what Roger & Gallet have given us here, is a perfect re-invention of the original, which I was convinced, could not be improved upon. Of course I still love the original, it will always have a special place in my heart, but there is something so uniquely beautiful about this scent which allows you to appreciate that sometimes, perfection can be improved upon. Roger & Gallet are consistent in giving us these beautiful fragrances, there really is something for everyone, a tried and true testament to that is the fact that my father, who has never worn or owned an aftershave in his life, is now an R&G convert, shower gels and fragrances. I know I've said it before but this is one of the only brands that I truly look forward to seeing whats coming next. It never disappoints, and that is a real rarity in the ever expanding fragrance industry. Kudos Roger & Gallet, Kudos!

That's it for now ladies,
I hope you enjoyed!
