I love Jo Malone - nutmeg & giner/black vetyvr cafe/lime,basil and mandarin...if you order them they come in beautiful black and cream box with ribbon and packed in scented straw...

Ooh the new Chloe one is absolutely gorgeous and I just love Narcisco Rodriguez For Her

I love Origin's ginger essence - it's a great one if you're not into floral stuff, which I can't abide- they all smell like old ladies to me. It's really refreshing, but not as sweet as something like Clinique's Happy.

You can buy all the other stuff in the range too which is amazing (their ginger cloud body lotion).

OR, I also love Clarin's Eau Dynamisante, which is much more herbally and I adore it - in fact, its the perfume that most gets commented on.

Both are departures from the more traditional world of scent. But if you can afford it, go with some of these Jo Malone rec's - they are gorgeous.
