CJ Scents Gingermallow Perfume Review

Don't forget that I have a makeup giveaway going on! There will be three winners. Click HERE to enter.

Hi, all! 

While I am editing the pictures that I have taken of the different ways I use my empty candle jars, I thought I might review a favorite perfume of mine, so that this blog doesn't look too neglected. :o) 

I have been wanting to review Gingermallow perfume by CJ Scents for many months now,  but have not had the chance to sit down to give this perfume the nice, thorough review that it deserves. This is not my first time reviewing a fabulous CJ Scents perfume. In the past, I have also reviewed Gingerbread Amber, which you may read HERE.


At first spray, Gingermallow opens with a bright, zesty note of -- what else? Ginger. Within seconds, the brightness is smoothed out with a warmer, denser note of sweet marshmallow, which is so realistic that I can smell even the powdered sugar dusting on it. The two very opposite notes are so complementary and play so well together, I just love it!

I can also smell something very creamy in this, too, which I can't identify, but it smells like almond milk and cream, with perhaps the soft, soothing note of oatmeal as well.

Gingermallow is such a beautiful scent. It's light and fresh, yet not one of those insipid "fresh air" perfumes, because it is rounded out with other such complex notes. It is sweet yet fresh; light yet dense; just so perfectly balanced and can be worn on all 365 days of the year, although it does make me feel very hungry for Fall!

The lasting power is 3-5 hours on me, but could last longer, depending on the wearer's skin chemistry.

About CJ Scents: CJ Scents is a niche* perfumery, with its offerings of artisan perfume blends created by founder and perfumer, Candice J. Each blend is very unique, unlike anything one would find out in the mainstream market. The perfumes are created with unconventional notes, and there is something for everybody!

*Niche perfumes: unique artisan blends that are not offered at mainstream stores.

Currently, Gingermallow is not on the main list of perfumes offered, but if you can definitely order a bottle of your own by contacting the store! :o)
