MFH says

One of the first ‘proper’ fragrances I ever owned; Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male holds a lot of very special memories for me.

It’s an iconic juice that has seriously stood the test of time. Sure, it’s not a heavyweight in terms of performance (longevity is fairly weak), but it’s a fun and playful, fresh fragrance for everyday wear.

A classic that I love to return to.

Heart: Cinnamon, Cumin, Orange Blossom.

Base: Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Sandalwood, Cedarwood.

What They Say

Le Male, as virile as it is sexy, pays tribute to the mythical figure that has forever inspired Jean Paul Gaultier: the sailor.

The power and freshness of mint. Lavender, evoking the familiar, comforting scent of shaving soap, is transformed by the sensuality of vanilla.

    Fantastic fragrance for a youthful feel. Not appropriate for a top level executive, but perfect for a young associate who still goes out on weeknights. The bubblegum note gives off a great, clean and vibrant vibe. Not going to last 12 hours unfortunately, though the smell is too good to pass on.
