The product

When it comes to fragrance that you can wear every day, a bouquet that’s not too overpowering but also leaves an impression in your wake is often ideal.

We think we can all agree that in the search for our signature scent we’ve sampled some perfumes that haven’t stood the test of time and usually end up discarded before the season they’re intended for is through. Or we’re left underwhelmed by the litany of ‘socially acceptable’ scents that honestly just remind us of something our grandmother would wear.

Enter: Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily and Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily Body Cream. The fragrance duo that perfectly toes the line between the comfort one experiences when sipping on a heady morning brew and a refreshing bouquet of white florals, citrus and ginger.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this everyday scent-layering duo.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily and Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily Body Cream to a panel of women aged 20 to 50 who were looking for their signature scent.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily and Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily Body Cream.

The luxurious fragrance: Our members loved the unexpected blend of citrus and ginger notes in the perfume and body cream, with a few of our members saying just how much they loved layering the two to get the most out of the captivating scent.

The lightweight body cream formulation: Our members loved how fast-absorbing the body cream was, meaning they could happily enjoy the refreshing scent of ginger, citrus and white florals without that gross, sticky feeling post-application.

That the scent wasn’t overpowering: Reviewers really loved the fact that although the ginger lily scent featured some bold fragrance notes it dried down to a wearable, everyday perfume that didn’t overpower them throughout the day, even when it was layered with the body cream.

The verdict

“I don’t know what I expected [Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily] to smell like but nothing I imagined was as divine as this! It smells like luxury and yet reminds me of countryside walks in floral gardens at the same time. The fragrance is super long lasting, and after morning application I was still smelling lovely for after work drinks. I also found the fragrance lasted longer when layered with the accompaniment of the white tea ginger lily moisturiser. I will definitely be recommending and rebuying this perfume.”

“I’m a big fan of the original White Tea so hearing there was a new release of White Tea with Ginger Lily, I knew I had to give [Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily] a shot... Upon the first spray, you could automatically smell the strong ginger notes… I found it to be very fresh and soft on my skin. I do love the balance between the ginger and orange, it had a beautiful touch to it. The fragrance is wonderful and captivating. I absolutely love it just as much as I love the original White Tea.”

“I have been using this [Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily Body Cream] for about 2 weeks now and absolutely love it. I have very sensitive skin and sinuses and have found this lotion to affect neither. It's a really light weight cream that rubs in beautifully to your skin and makes you feel refreshed and like you've been sitting in a cherry blossom garden. The scent is subtle and lasts a long time. It's not an oil texture which is great as I hate the oily feeling others leave behind. It is great for everyday use, keeping my skin moisturised and soft.”

“I was absolutely surprised by this [Elizabeth Arden White Tea Ginger Lily Body Cream] as it felt so luxe and rich on the skin. It absorbs really well and leaves such a fresh feminine scent that lingers all day! When paired up with the White Tea & Ginger Lily fragrance, this is the most beautifully fresh and long lasting fragrance at such a great price point. I would recommend this cream along with the fragrance, as a lovely gift idea for a friend or mum on mother's day. It's quite a subtle and summery scent so I find most people would enjoy this fragrance as an everyday scent. Nothing too overpowering.”
