I have never been a fan of Calgon body mists. I find that the cheap sprays smell great for a few seconds, and then the scent fades in about 5 minutes after spraying.
When I came across Calgon Perfumes… I got excited. I knew that the perfume would last a hell of a lot longer then the body mists… so I splurged and bought a bottle of Hawaiian Ginger, which has always been one of my favorite summer time scents.
The package is what caused me to take notice to the new perfume. Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Perfume came in a pretty Hawaiian themed decorative floral box, with a bright yellow colored box. Inside of the box you can see the bottle of perfume.
Calgon Hawaiian Ginger has a very floral yet beachy fragrance to it. I initially smell coconut, mixed with flowers. I cannot completely describe what the floral note it, but it reminds me a lot of honey suckle and Lillie’s mixed in. All together though you get what smells like a tropical beach side fiesta. It has a very summery kick to it that makes it perfect for summer wear. Day or night.
Calgon fragrances are cheap, and the scent does not last long! If it is cheap it won’t work.
The Calogon ‘body mists’ do not last long. The perfume’s do.
How Is The Perfume?
Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Perfume smells just like the original body mist Hawaiian Ginger, only, it lasts a hell of a lot longer. A few small squirts to your clothing and you will smell like a night in Hawaii for a few decent hours.
The perfume itself has a yellow tint to it, I do not recommend spraying directly on clothing, as it will stain. Place the bottle at least a foot away from you before spraying. Then…walk into the perfume mist.
After a few hours the scent fades, however as it fades it leaves behind a more floral Lilly fragrance that sort o turns into a musk. It’s strange, but very likable.
Calgon Hawaiian Ginger body mist only comes to about $4.00, and the mist sucks. However spending a few bucks more for the perfume is well worth it. You can pick up a bottle of Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Perfume for about $9.99 at any local Walmart. The perfume is also for sale on numerous online websites. Doing a quick google search of Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Perfume will bring up many different deals.
I like it. It’s an inexpensive perfume that you can toss right into your purse, and not have to worry about it breaking. (It’s cheap, you can buy a new one if it does break).
Although it is cheap, it does the job of keeping you smelling like a hot tropical night in Hawaii.
I find spraying it directly under my arm pits as it’s best use! Tee-hee! As your pit’s heat up, so does the Hawaiian Ginger fragrance.
