Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male was created back in 1994 by Francis Kurkdjian and was the second fragrance (after Classique) from the Gaultier scent collection and remains a bestseller today. Famous for its tin can packaging and inspired bottle, it continues to win awards world wide.


JPG Le Male  – Official Description:

Intensive and sensible, modern, and comfortably warm, masculine and gentle… Le Male is magnetically attractive fragrance which seduces with its uniqueness; it is built on contrasts: traditional and bold, fresh and mild, strong and sensual, in one word: absolutely irresistible for women. Fresh mint is a symbol of strength; the tradition is represented by lavender; vanilla gives warmth and tenderness. The top notes are composed of mint, lavender and bergamot. The heart is composed of cinnamon, cumin, and orange blossom. The base contains vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood and cedarwood.

JPG Le Male Review – What We Thought

Le Male is an Iconic fragrance which at first appears clean and fresh after a moderate application. With opening notes of Vanilla, Lavender and Mint they don't change that much in the dry down. I feel the orange blossom is being squeezed more than the Lavender and although cumin is on the ingriedients list it must be in minute amounts as it smells very smooth and warm. Francis Kurdjian has done a wonderful job of blending the base notes which are very sweet with a wonderful Vanilla Tonka Bean finish. One thing that suprised us most here at Perfume Price HQ was how well the scent lasted throughout the day on the skin and how much it was loved by both sexes - even though it is a Mens fragrance. Available in 75ml, 125ml and 200ml bottles.

JPG Classique Review – What We Thought

Classique was a massive hit from the moment it was launched back in 1993 and has been one of the best selling fragrances ever since. As with the Le Male we apply a moderte amount and what is first striking is the rich and satisfying opening of Anise and orange blossom, sexy and lady like whilst being new yet old fashioned. Classique is a heavy scent reminisent of the days where ladies wore garments and garters as represented on the bottle. A noticable musky dry down reminding me of french classic films. Ladies here at Perfume Price HQ say the scent lasted for around 7 hours got the most comments when out of the office loving the attention and confidence from such a sexy scent. - Team
