Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier was created in 1995 and the nose behind this great spectacle is Francis Kurkdjian. The fragrance can be categorized as an Oriental Fougere scent that is mild, sensual, and bold.
The top notes include mint, bergamot, cardamom, Artemisia, and lavender. The middle notes include caraway, orange blossom, and cinnamon, whereas the base notes include tonka bean, sandalwood, amber, cedar, and a hint of vanilla.
Longevity of smell
The smell does have a few intense notes due to which it can last on your skin for almost seven or eight hours. The strong scent also gives it an impressive sillage but you have to be careful how much you apply to your skin or clothes as it can easily overwhelm your senses.
The bottle is in a shape of a silhouette of a man and it has a finely working spray atomizer on the top. The fragrance is available in 4.2 and 6.7 fl oz. It also comes in a gift set which includes the perfume bottle, a shower gel, and a deodorant.
The perfume is anything but the ordinary. It contains sweet, spicy, exciting, and desirable accords that blend beautifully together to create a smell that is irresistible and can be labeled as a bright, bold, manly scent. Plus, the gift set makes up an amazing present that you can gift a man.
Initially, when you apply the perfume it has a very strong and almost harsh opening but it subsides just as quickly. The middle and base notes contain spicy, citrusy, and woody which makes it a mysterious and attractive scent that can be worn by any male.
