Description

Serge Lutens Five O'Clock au Gingembre opens on lemon, filled with spices, gingerbready, a little peppery with incense, deepened by the tea notes, never becoming too sweet, just richer and more pungent. The drydown is intensely warm and comforting.

Reveiws of Serge Lutens Five O'clock au Gingembre from noses that may or may not sniff like yours 

from perfumesmellinthings - "Lutens's newest, about to hit Barneys anytime now. "Le 5 O'clock" is of course the phrase in French for afternoon tea, and I approached the scent keeping this angle in mind. Notes of ginger, honey, pepper and cocoa has me thinking that perhaps this would be a much stronger concoction than it turned out to be. It is all about tea, but not in the smoky, almost savage way that say, Dzing! or Chergui are; those are being served milky tea in a circus tent and being served smoky Souchong by a hot Sheik respectively. Gigembre is tea served in a fine hotel: Earl Grey and shortbread cookies with crystallised ginger, with a base of cacao and patchouli as if the finely dressed matron at the next table had ordered some hot Valrhona."

from colognoisseur - "A more formal version of tea and gingerbread comes courtesy of perfumer Christopher Sheldrake in Serge Lutens Five O’Clock au Gingembre. This is high tea in a salon decorated for the holidays. The pot of Earl Grey tea is steeping right next to cakes fresh out of the oven. The smell of the wreaths and the Christmas tree are underneath it all. M. Sheldrake has created a gingerbread perfume as fragile as a crystal tree ornament. It is so full of subtlety and nuance it catches my breath every time I wear it. Also the more I wear it the more I think this might be one of the best perfumes M. Sheldrake has done in his tenure with Uncle Serge. It is the most sentimental of the perfumes on this list which makes it perfect for the season."

    Bought a full bottle

    I have been looking for a spicy scent that is not overwhelming, does not disappear into a cloud of vanilla or so big that it can't be worn without a headache...This one fits the bill. It is a gingerbread house without the sweetness, but with the delicacy and the light sillage. Can be worn anytime, and by either sex. I am not a fan of Serge Lutens (his scents generally just don't work for me) but this one is definitely a keeper,and is very comforting.

    Comforting and spicy

    this is a lovely everyday fragrance, comforting but has a kick to it. I have already treated myself to a fb

    Yep. I'll wear this all fall and winter.

    This is not too foody, or too gingery, or too anything! I love wearing this when it's cold out, or not too cold out, or any other time.
    I sprayed the inside of my favorite bum-around sweater with this wonderful scent, and found myself grabbing it from the coat hook just because. As a fan of SL, I think I was genetically engineered to love this.
