Jean Paul Gaultier Le Beau Male ~ new fragrance

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Beau Male

Jean Paul Gaultier will launch Le Beau Mâle in February. Le Beau Mâle is a fresher variation on 1995's Le Mâle, and uses the same name as the brand's masculine beauty range.

Le Beau Mâle was developed by perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, who also developed the original Le Mâle fragrance. Notes include mint, lavender, vanilla, sandalwood and musk.

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Beau Mâle will be available in 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette and in matching grooming products.

    Because “Le Male” and “Fleur De Male” are in my top 10 of the favorite fragrances I ADORE Wearing… this sounds like Manna! So i am Going to be Stalking the Stores for this when it comes out… think i found my first fragrance buy of 2013!!!!!

    • Robin says:

      Good pick, hopefully — I do like that bottle. Worried about just how much fresher it might be, but we’ll see!

      • Lys says:

        Yes, there’s enough fresh in original Le Male.

  2. Lys says:

    That ad is awesome.

    • Nlb says:

      Me too. And how. I love how his ads always have the right dose of playfulness and goofiness in them. It somehow buffers any embarrassment around viewing this exquisite man laying around half-naked.

      Interestingly, Tom Ford never pulls this off. JPG ads seem like fun cheesecake, while Ford’s cross the fine line into the profane and you always feel a little violated by them (which, I’m sure, he’d be happy to know). And it’s not like they’re so entirely different, too.

    The ad is silly, imo, lol

    • Lucy says:

      they forgot to list drowned Polar Bear in the notes

    • Robin says:

      Well, all the JPG ads are silly I guess. But I like them.

  4. Racine says:

    It’s probably the summer limited edition of le male they release every year, only this time with a different name…

  5. Racine says:

    I meant same juice!

    • thenoseknows says:

      Nope, they play around a little more with the notes for the Summer edition, which since i think ’08 or ’09 have been different versions of the scent… still “Le Male” but with new notes added or others toned back and new fragrances highlighted… am eagerly awaiting the Summer “Le Male” as well! Always Love JPG! and Kokorico is coming to the States too this year…. Lots to love from Jean Paul!

    Love that ad. Hope it comes to the U S in Feb :)

  7. Nlb says:

    I like the combo of mint and vanilla. Kind of mint sorbet-ish :).

  8. eminere says:

    Love the ad visual.

  9. thomkallor says:

    ew to the whole package: bottle, concept, the silly guy in the ad. Time to move on to something else JPG.

  10. blauriche says:

    I usually like Gaultier, but I have to admit I’m completely turned off by the bear skin rug in the ad. Not cute.
