Earlier in the year I tried Roger & Gallet for the first time and fell in love with their Fleur de Figuier Shower Cream. So, I was excited to try one of their fragrances – Gingembre Rouge Eau Fraiche* which is inspired by Zanzibar (cheeky fact – that’s where legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury was born!)
The packaging is the perfect handbag size which attracted me right away and whilst the bottle is simple, it’s still very eye-catching.
The scent is Ginger based with notes of Mandarin and Pomegrante which gives a really vibrant and fruity scent that reminds me of an exotic island. I will advise that it is rather sweet so it may not be to all tastes and I find this is a much more summer appropriate fragrance option. The Eau Fraiche fragrances are advertised as “fragrant waters” which to me means they sit somewhere between a body spray/mist and an actual perfume. The scent fades quite quickly so you would find yourself having to re-apply if you wanted to keep the scent at it’s most vibrant throughout the day. As the scent fades, it loses much of it’s saccharine tones and the fruitiness seems more prominent which I prefer.
For me, it’s a little too sweet without too much depth but I find it has a very youthfulness to it so I would definitely recommend it to those who prefer much sweeter scents.
Have you tried anything from Roger & Gallet before?
