Ginger Ciao is my favorite of the YOSH perfumes. I wore it to a Gaugin exhibit and I’ve loved it ever since.
Ginger Ciao opens as night blooming flowers in the middle of the night. Imagine a place that is dark and quiet; the only thing speaking is this fragrance. 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. It continues to wear a tropical floral with a grassy green vetiver. The dry-down is a tropical blend of powdery florals, fig leaves and toasted coconut. It’s the fragrance equivalent of Gaugin in the 1890’s.
Notes listed include black coconut, night queen, tiger lily, neroli, ylang ylang, ginger and basil. PERFUMER – Yosh Han
GIve Ginger Ciao a try if you are looking for a complex coconut perfume or if you like tropical florals. Try it if you like perfumes like By Kilian Liaisons Dangereuses, Origins Ginger Essence, Vero Profumo Onda and/or DSH Perfumes Indochine. Ginger Ciao is unisex in my opinion. It’s for anyone looking for something tropical. However, I’ve had guy friends say that they think the florals makes this too feminine for them to wear.
I’m reviewing the EDP, not the perfume oil. The EDP has above average projection and longevity. Sillage, baby.
The 1.7 oz EDP retails for $110 at Luckyscent.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Heady tropical floral blooming at night. It’s my favorite YOSH perfume.
