Fresh as a fish? The simple ginger-lemon of the traditional colognists does not work for me
The traditional house 4711 has been offering a wide range of light Cologne waters with a variety of fragrances for a good decade. Whereby in the colognes of the Acqua Colonia series usually only 2 or 3 notes are combined. Minimalism instead of complexity. By no means does this path have to be flat or boring, as the wonderful Lime-Nutmeg Cologne Acqua Colonia demonstrates. But here now it's all about lemon plus ginger - and I don't like the result so much.

I like ginger on fish, with vegetables and in tea. Lemon in tea, on vegetables, on fish and in gin? I love it! You would think that these two fresheners combined would make people look neat and fresh in summer. But the result is not terrible. But it is not great either. The lemon reminds my nose (and what is still hanging there northwards) of some cleaning agents. And the ginger seems a bit muggy and rather dull than fresh and hot.
Granted: Strong lemon top notes are often problematic for me, mandarins, oranges, limes and yuzu elicit a yuchu from me more easily.

For example, L'Eau du Caporal, Parfumo's highest rated Artisan perfumer, is very rarely used by me, because it takes 3 hours of beating before the sharp, aggressive and persistent lemon has calmed down, and the very beautiful and well-balanced base does its job for another 4 hours. Also the Spanish lemon bomb classic of 1912, the Agua de Colonia Concentrada of the house of Alvarez Gomez, opens similarly massive - but does not last as long as the heavy water of the French Force de frappe. I have been admiring it more as a curiosity than using it regularly.

In contrast to these lemons, 4711 ginger lemon is much weaker. It only projects discreetly and it only lasts for about 2 hours close to the skin. In this sense, a simple cologne without the endurance that the cardamom tangerine or lime nutmeg, which Geza Schön made for the same house as Acqua Colonia, has trained (synthesized underneath).

4711 Lemon-Ginger is dispensable as cologne for me. Or should you try it (inspired by the confused ideas of another nuclear power president) in salad or tea for internal disinfection?

I would have preferred Ginger & Lemon
The fragrance promises, according to its own statement, invigoration and he can keep that. Just as the two main ingredients Lemon & Ginger go to the point in a refreshing way full pound.

The more dominant lemon reminds strongly of the Campino candies ... halt crisp and full-bodied. The ginger is also excellently perceptible, but could come in my opinion even more intense to the course. But then the cologne would probably be called "Ginger & Lemon", assuming that the focus of the fragrance is called ahead.

What is really a pity, however, is the manageable projection and durability. Since one must indeed re-spray every hour. Due to the low purchase price, however, this should not be a big reason to complain.

No, this is by no means higher perfume art, because neither the interwoven content of the two main players nor the refined course of entwined ingredients let us expect miracles here. It is simply a nice freshener.

After all, the invigoration works for both male and female and all ages. Only at the time of year I would classify him by nature narrowly in the summer if necessary on sunny warm spring days.

A sweet pithy lemon with watery note and ginger.
It's not bad, but isn't really a hot weather spritz as ginger is warming and not cooling.
Beware of the white musk!
May have been better as a drink flavour.

I love lemon and all aspects of ginger in both perfume and culinary use, so I was quite surprised when I disliked this fragrance. I couldn't discern either note and even though the price is reasonable, it is not worth even that much. Disappointing .

It's the most classic fresh acchord, but also the most evanescent. What a damage. Anyway the bottle is very precious at an affordable price
