YOSH Ginger Ciao EDP Perfume Review

YOSH Ginger Ciao EDP

Ginger Ciao is my favorite of the YOSH perfumes. I wore it to a Gaugin exhibit and I’ve loved it ever since.

I get orange blossoms, ylang ylang and this stunning floral humidity. It’s rugged, slightly raw which in my mind makes it passionate. Somewhere in there you pick up on freshly grated ginger.
