Le Male (Jean Paul Gaultier)

Released in 1995, Le Male immediately put bad boy fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier on the fragrance map. Built on contrasts—strong and masculine but unwittingly sensual, traditional yet refreshingly new—this fragrance in its very masculine shaped bottle and outfitted in a sailor’s t-shirt is the perfect embodiment of all that is Jean Paul Gaultier—dare to be more than just one man. A blend of lavender, orange blossom and mint on a soft bed of woods touched by cinnamon, cumin, vanilla and the tonka bean gives this very masculine scent just the right touch of warmth and sensuality.
