Five O’Clock Au Gingembre belongs to Serge Lutens export line and was introduced in 2008 as an oriental spicy shared fragrance. Taking its source of inspiration from the afternoon tea ceremony, this perfume represents Serge Lutens’s departure from the enchanting aromas of East, in order to embark its fans into a voyage to England. As a result, I m sure that it happened due to both my admiration for the United Kingdom and the careful selected ingredients of this fragrance, and the conclusion is that subsequent to this test, I placed Five O’Clock Au Gingembre on the second position of my preferred fragrances from Serge Lutens.
This fragrance is complex (as most of Serge Lutens creations are!) rendering a good touch of English style into a dark gourmand accord, obtained from the note of bitter cocoa. Therefore, in case you love England, you will absolutely adore Five O’Clock Au Gingembre.
The olfactory construction of the fragrance begins on a refreshing accord of bergamot, juxtaposed to the spiciness of candied ginger note. Then, as the top notes fade away and we are moving into the mid development stage, the perfume is balanced by an accord of honey, offset by the sensual patchouli note. The final phase appeals to the spicy character of pepper, combined with the mysterious and irresistible aroma of dark cocoa, which produces an absolutely enchanting effect on the skin.
Five O’Clock Au Gingembre comes in the signature bottle that became a trademark of Serge Lutens export line, exhibiting a liquid with a soft brown shade and rectangular shape. Overall, this fragrance is very pleasant and I’ll suggest you to sample it as soon as possible.
