4711 Acqua Colonia Lemon&Ginger (+Giveaway)

Acqua Colonia Lemon & Ginger Giveaway

Some time ago, I received some products from Acqua Colonia. Their Lemon & Ginger range is perfect to keep the summer feeling as long as possible. I received the Eau de Cologne and Refreshing Body Spray, and I will be able to give these products to 3 of my followers as well!

Acqua Colonia Lemon & Ginger Giveaway

I got 2 products from the 4711 Acqua Colonia Lemon & Ginger Range: the Eau de Cologne (170ml/5.7 oz.) and the Refreshing Body Spray (75ml/2.5 oz.). The Lemon & Ginger Range has a beautiful fresh looking, green & yellow packaging with some leaves on it. I really like it!

 

Acqua Colonia Lemon & Ginger Eau de Cologne

Lemon & Ginger Eau de Cologne

First off: the Lemon & Ginger Eau de Cologne. I got the 170ml/5.7 oz. bottle, which is HUGE. I really love the lemon & lime colored box with the small lemon on it. The perfume bottle is not spectacular, but looks quite chique which I like.

Acqua Colonia Lemon & Ginger Eau de Cologne Ingredients

Ingredients:

Alcohol, Water (aqua), Fragrance (perfume), Limonene, Citral, Linalool, Ethylhexyl, Methoxycinnamate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Geraniol, Ethylhexyl Selicylate, Citronellol, Anise Alcohol, BHT

Fragrance wise, this Lemon & Ginger scent by 4711 Acqua Colonia isn’t my absolute favorite, but that’s mostly because I prefer very warm, wintery fragrances (like Dior Hypnotic Poison or Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium). Lemon & Ginger is very fresh and smells super clean and lemony (with a little extra). For me, this would be great to use as a home fragrance. The bottle also looks very beautiful so it really is an eyecatcher whenever you put it in your house.

 

Acqua Colonia Lemon & Ginger Refreshing Body Spray

Refreshing Body Spray

The second product from the Lemon & Ginger range is the Refreshing Body Spray. This body spray has a simply green glass bottle with a plastic cap, and some fresh green and yellow details.

Acqua Colonia Lemon & Ginger Refreshing Body Spray Ingredients

Ingredients:

Alcohol, Water (aqua), Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Fragrance (parfum), Panthenol, Limonene, Citral, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Linalool, Geraniol, Citronellol, Sodium Benzoate, Lactic Acid, Potassium Sorbate.

The Refreshing Body Spray contains more alcohol and less perfume than the Eau de Cologne, and is perfect to ‘refresh’ your fragrance during the day! It also contains some glycerin to make sure the product isn’t too drying (because of the alcohol that’s in there). Fragrance wise, the Body Spray smells exactly the same as the Eau de Cologne. For this one, it’s exactly the same: I’d rather use it as a home fragrance because it smells so fresh, and I prefer to wear heavy, warm fragrances on my skin.

  1. Ohhhh de combinatie citroen/limoen-gember doet mij altijd zo aan mijn vakantie in Thailand denken. In vrijwel elk gerecht zitten deze ingrediënten en mijn to go drankje daar was heet water met…. jawel citroen en gember (soms nog een blaadje Thaise basilicum erbij). Nu nog steeds trouwens, want ik blijf het heerlijk vinden! Elke keer als ik het drink waan ik me weer even in Thailand. Uiteraard lijkt mij hierdoor een parfum met deze ingrediënten geweldig! Thailand all over again

  2. YEAAAAS. Ik doe mee 🙂 I’ll enter. I’m still kinda confused which language to use at your renewed website. Maakt niet uit. Ik doe dus mee 🙂
    Keep u the good work! AND THIS SOUNDS HEERLIJK!

  3. Heel graag doe ik mee voor deze heerlijke producten.ik ben in duitsland geboren en opgegroeid met het merk 4711. mijn oma en moeder gebruikten het.deze lijn ken ik nog niet,ben er erg benieuwd naar.denk dat je ermee de zomer nog even vast kunt houden.

  4. Wat een heerlijke combinatie lijkt het me trouwens, de smaken van de ingrediënten vind ik al heerlijk, en de geuren die dan samengevoegd zijn, I’m in!

  5. Ik heb de parfum afgelopen week gekocht, maar deze sukkel kletst graag en kan niet multitasken. Het resultaat? Tasje in de trein vergeten. Hui-len.
    Misschien kun jij me helpen alsnog mijn zomergevoel te verlengen 😀
