Ginger perfumes fall in the aromatic fragrance family, although it’s zingy fresh scent means that it’s often used alongside or instead of a citrus top note. This article outlines the best Ginger perfumes and where to get them.

Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily

Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily is my top recommendation for the best Ginger perfume. It’s affordable, good for lasting, and perfectly encapsulates the scent of Ginger.

There are a number of different White Tea perfumes; all of which are classy, affordable fragrances. For more information check out my article on the White Tea range.

Twilly d’Hermès Eau Ginger

The Twilly d’Hermès range are a slightly aromatic, slightly floral range of fragrances which come in unique perfume bottles that have a Hermes craft and top hat (my article comparing the range).

Twilly d’Hermès Eau Ginger is the freshest scent in the Twilly perfume range. It’s smells like candied Ginger (my grandma’s favourite candy!) so it has the freshness and sharpness of the Ginger, and the softness of warm brown sugar.

Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily

Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily is a great perfume for Ginger lovers, as is the body products which go with it. I recommend these Heavenly Gingerlily products if you’re looking to layer and extend the scent of another Ginger perfume.

Jo Malone London Nutmeg & Ginger

Jo Malone London Nutmeg & Ginger does exactly what it says on the tin. Ginger and Nutmeg blend to create a unisex, warm Ginger scent.

This is a Cologne so it’s not a strong fragrance and could easily be layered with similar fragrances.

I think Jo Malone London Nutmeg & Ginger is discontinued bit its still available online.

Hermes Un Jardin Apres La Mousson

The Hermes Jardin fragrances are inspired by the scents of different gardens around the world. Un Jardin Apres La Mousson translates to ‘A Garden After The Monsoon’ and evokes the fresh scent of petrichor that you get after a heavy rainstorm. Ginger is the main fragrance note alongside aromatic notes of Cardamon, Coriander and Pepper.

Roger & Gallet Eau de Gingembre

Roger & Gallet have a series of light fruity and aromatic scents. Their Eau de Gingembre has a strong Ginger scent which is accompanied by Litchi, Orange and Orange Blossom. They’re fragrances are quite affordable but also aren’t particularly long lasting. I think they’re appropriate for very hot weather, or layering onto other fragrances.

Ralph Lauren Romance

Ralph Lauren Romance is a musky Rose fragrance which has a sharp Ginger top note so I wanted to include it in this list.

Romance was released in 1998 and has been a best seller for Ralph Lauren ever since. It’s a simple yet sophisticated every day perfume. The Ginger top note adds a freshness which is well represented by the windy outdoor scene in the marketing imagery.

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Pin-Up

Within the extension range of different versions of Jean Paul Gaultier Classique, their Pin-Up fragrance was a scent with Ginger as the star of the show. The signature Classique Vanilla note is also included, as is a feminine Orange Blossom.

Unfortunately, Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Pin-Up is now discontinued, but can still be found at Walmart.
