Looking for recommendations

I absolutely LOVE the smells of ginger and frankincense, but I can’t find perfumes that smell like either/both of them (I’m a perfume rookie so I haven’t done much hunting). Does anyone have any suggestions of perfumes that have these notes? 

Re: Looking for recommendations



My favourite ginger perfume is Heretic's Dirty Ginger. LUSH makes a perfume called Ginger which I've never smelled but generally I think the house is good. I'm pretty sure Origins makes one though I can't find it to tag it. I haven't tried it either but I liked their ginger scented body lotion.


I can't think of any frankincense perfumes where this is the central, dominant ingredient. THE house for quality frankincense perfumes is probably the Omani house, Amouage. It's dreadfully expensive though and they tend to be super complex with extensive notes pyramids. Some incense based perfumes with frankincense are the classic high-church service, Avignon by Comme des Garcons and Jo Malone's Incense & Cedarat.


I'm afraid I can't think of any with the combined notes but hope some of the above piques your interest 🙂
