Fragrance Review: JEAN PAUL GAULTIER - CLASSIQUE
What is there to be said about French couturier Jean Paul Gaultier that hasn't already been said? His head-turning fashions grace the catwalks of the world, and his perfumes sell hand-over-fist at stores around the planet. One might argue that the success of his perfume and cosmetics empire all started here: his first feminine fragrance Classique!
Classique (and her masculine counterpart Le Male) literally changed the topography of perfumery forever... not only was she presented as a striking corseted figure (one that would be reinvented as a limited edition wearing Gaultier's latest fashions from season to season), but she also held an enchanting elixir that simply won the world over. A floral oriental, Classique won its acclaim with its winning blend of orange blossom, star anise, ylang ylang, rose, iris and dewy fruit accords of plum and pear. A delectable saccharine composition, she represented the finest ingredients juxtaposed in precisely the right way to be both delicate and daring. Amber, vanilla, cinnamon and precious woods round the base, ensuring she lingers 8+ hours on skin.
The scent that inspired tens of flankers – there can be only one true “Classique”, and as her name suggests, she has already become a modern classic. Sexy, sophisticated and entirely enchanting, Classique has not lost an ounce of her magnetism and magic! Great for nights out in the evening.
