Fragrances: Jean Paul Gaultier Guide

The allbeauty quick guide to Jean Paul Gaultier fragrances for men and women.

Jean Paul Gaultier, the iconic designer and enfant terrible of fashion, is responsible for one of the most successful designer-fragrance crossovers to date. His first fragrance, Classique, launched in 1993 (originally titled Jean Paul Gaultier Eau de Parfum) and was made for women. Described as an “elegant, oriental, floral fragrance” with top notes of anise, orange blossom and tangerine, naturally it was an instant hit.

The huge success of Classique was followed by Le Mâle, the fragrance for men, in 1995, which was loved both for its scent as well as its ‘tin can’ outer packaging. Both fragrances continue to hit the topseller mark, notably at Christmas and on Valentine’s Day.

Gaultier continued to produce fragrances on a regular basis and in 2005 the unisex “fragrance for humanity” Gaultier² (pronounced Gaultier to the power of two) was launched, a beautiful mixture of vanilla, amber and musk, blended through a smoke screen of incense and myrhh.

The hugely popular Fleur du Mâle was launched in 2007, with an orange blossom and neroli flavour. Then in 2011 the bestseller Kokorico arrived – described as “a powerful, dynamic, aphrodisiac fragrance: the raw cocoa bean collides with the sprightly freshness of the fig leaf and livens up the timeless elegance of woods” and featuring a bottle design that was simply astonishing (from the side a man’s face, from the front the male body). Did you know? The word ‘kokorico’ is the french version of ‘cock-a-doodle-doooo’!

Since then Jean Paul Gaultier has continued to produce new fragrances plus limited edition bottles, and currently has almost 100 fragrances to his name. Other bestsellers include MaDame a fresh, floral scent with notes of orange zest, sparkling rose, musk and cedar wood and Le Beau Male, a cocktail of mint, absinthe and lavender.

Gaultier Scandal

2017 saw a flurry of excitement with the release of Scandal, a deliciously naughty scent that mixes elegance with the scandal of Pigalle! With notes of honey, blood orange and patchouli, Scandal is set to be our new favourite.
