CLASSIQUE AND LE MALE
THE SIGNATURE SCENTS OF JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
The iconoclastic designer Jean Paul Gaultier appropriates an everyday object and transforms it into an artistic case: the now-famous metal can.
Classique is an unexpected and groundbreaking bustshaped bottle with generous curves, a tribute to feminine beauty. Etched on the transparent glass is Jean Paul Gaultier’s emblematic garment for women: the corset. A symbol of seduction and extreme sensuality. The irresistible sweetness of orange blossom is combined with the powerful aphrodisiac notes of ginger. The scent of rice powder, a reminder of his childhood, is given a new twist with the caressing strength of vanilla.
Le Male is a torso-shaped bottle with unashamed masculine attributes. Etched on the transparent glass is Jean Paul Gaultier’s emblematic garment for men: the sailor striped jersey, a symbol of freedom and seduction. Le Male, as virile as it is sexy, is a fragrance which offers a nonconformist view of masculinity… a reassuring fragrance with an extremely modern trail. Lavender, evoking the familiar, comforting scent of shaving soap, is enhanced by the sensuality of vanilla.
