Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge Competition

Roger and Gallet Gingembre Rouge Banner

Re-Branded Signature (Emma) copy

Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge is the fragrant equivalent of an exotic getaway. Juicy, floral and a little spicy, it captures the sultry feel of an evening spent on a terrace surrounded by ginger flowers, with the sun streaking red across the sky. It goes without saying that I’m head over heels.

Composed by iconic perfumer Alberto Morillas and Amandine Clerc-Marie, Gingembre Rouge pays homage to the beautiful island of Zanzibar, a place of vibrancy coupled with a laid back feel. The perfumers intended to craft a juice that poses as a love letter to the island of arresting sunsets, abundant aromas and richly textured backdrops. The result is a lively, sensuous and addictive fragrance, captured in a bottle that evokes the colour of a ginger flower.

Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge Main

 

Gingembre Rouge is a distant relative of the classic Gingembre Fresh Fragant Water Spray, also composed by Morillas, which pairs citrus with ginger absolute to produce a sparkling and elegant ode to ginger. This updated version borrows the same codes as that original scent, but amps up the plush and exotic feel of the core spicy note by pairing it with luscious pomegranate, mandarin, lychee and orange blossom. The dynamic personality of ginger is presented in a trifecta of energising notes: fresh ginger at the opening, beautiful ginger flower in the heart, and candied, crystallised ginger in the base. The overall effect is mesmerising.

Gingembre Rouge Top

 

The bottle, like all Roger & Gallet bottles, is tall, sleek and rounded. The graduated colour of crimson red to fuchsia recalls the unique colouring of a ginger flower, and is topped with a signature jewelled stopper complete with a golden embossed logo. It’s brings together the best of traditional French perfumery with a touch of the exotic, and it looks so inviting when sat on a dressing table. The perfect summer scent? We think so.

    Bora Bora!!

  • I think that Madagascar would be amazing – during the cooler, dry season of course as you’d want to avoid the monsoon period. Lemurs, endemic orchids (wonder how they smell like?), chameleons, the famous traveler’s palm, baobab trees…By the way, have you seen their beaches and crystal clear waters? As a foodie, I’m really intrigued in tasting Ro (rice cooked with herbs) and their popular snack Koba, a helping of rice, banana and seafood. Litchel, a lychee aperitif, or the Toaka gasy (made from sugarcane and rice) would be a perfect ending of any day under the arm of my loved one.

  • George

    I am from India and exotic means a totally different thing to me! Paris is an exotic culture I would love to experience. The language, food, art and of course Grasse for perfumes!
