I've slowly been working my way through the many recommendations I got the last few times I posted about Demeter scents, and so far, the clear winner is Gingerale.
As with any Demeter review, this will be brief: it is not a complicated fragrance, and does not require any lengthy description. Still, some of the Demeters are better than others at evoking whatever it is they are supposed to evoke. This one is perfect. It smells like — drum roll, please — ginger ale, and the opening is almost astonishingly effective at calling up the carbonated part; it literally tickles the nose. Admittedly, the fizz part is not long lasting, but the dry down is far from dull. It is a soft but bright ginger, lightly sweet, and the lasting power is nothing fabulous but it isn't horrible either: about average for a Demeter. Thanks to everyone who recommended this one!
A 30 ml Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray is $19, and Gingerale is also available in matching body products and Room Spray. For buying information, see the listing for Demeter under Perfume Houses.
My favorite ginger edibles: Trader Joe's Uncrystallized Candied Ginger and Chocolove Crystallized in Dark Chocolate (the latter is a chocolate bar, and you can find it at Whole Foods or Food Source markets). If you have a favorite, especially one covered with chocolate, do comment!
