At first it bursts forth with ginger, like the Origins perfume, and I couldn't tell if I liked it or not. About 20 minutes have passed and the dry down is a nice sweet, gingery, slightly pumpkiny, nutmegy, warm, a little citrusy perfect for fall smell. I would describe it as fall-fresh, as opposed to summer-fresh. The ginger notes are strong. I like it right now, but it could grow on me as I use it more.
