Zanzibar. A part of the world I would love to visit. It also reminds me of a Tenacious D song simply because the name randomly crops up. “What on earth is she wittering on about?”, I hear you say. Don’t worry, I’m there.
Gingembre Rouge* is Roger & Gallet’s new summer fragrance, inspired by a stopover in the exotic island of Zanzibar. In case it’s not obvious from its name, ginger plays a prominent part as a main ingredient in this scent which is fresh, fruity and floral.
For a little bottle, this one packs quite a punch. The fragrance is a colourful explosion of fresh ginger complemented by mandarin and pomegranate with notes of ginger flower, lychee and crystallised ginger, which delicately lingers on the skin. Perfect for the warm weather!
For the fragrance connoisseurs, here’s a break-down of the ingredients…
Top Notes: Fresh Ginger, Pomegranate Pulp, Mandarin
Heart Notes: Ginger Flower, Lychee Flower, Orange Blossom
Base Notes: Crystallised Ginger, Cedar Wood, White Musk
Housed in a wonderfully handbag-friendly size bottle, Gingembre Rouge is £16 for 30ml and £32 for 100ml, available from Marks & Spencer’s beauty hall as well as online beauty retailers.
