To me, the perfume line developed by Jean Paul Gaultier seemed always interesting (apart from my wife’s passion for Classique) and until recently I wasn’t able to decide which one of their fragrances should I introduce on my “to buy” list, in case I suddenly feel that a JPG scent is compulsory in my wardrobe. At the beginning of spring, I was able to finally sniff Kokorico, and I thought this was “the chosen one”, but after yesterday I’m more than 100% sure that my future acquisition from Gaultier must be Gaultier2, an aroma which I absolutely adore.
Introduced in September 2005 as the first unisex fragrance of the brand, Gaultier² (pronounced “Gaultier to the power of two”) is an oriental vanilla scent developed by the famous perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. Having a very good persistence and a minimal list of ingredients, Gaultier2 manages to seduce from the very beginning, with an over sweet opening that for me, evokes the aroma of a coffee-vanilla mix.
Then, as the scent begins to evolve the warm amber and sensual musk take the stage, but it is the vanilla note that fights for prominence, rendering a powdery finish to this captivating fragrance. I tested Gaultier2 many times, and on each occasion I was amazed by its carefully blended notes, therefore yesterday I felt that I should have it.
In line with the Classique and Le Male packaging concepts, Gaultier2 benefits as well from a very interesting image, for which the rectangular shape flacons were magnetized on the metallic side, in order to allow the bottles to be attached one to each other and set apart in need. Another interesting detail is that, according to the press reports Jean Paul Gaultier did not want his fragrance to feature the classic olfactory pyramid with top, heart and base notes therefore Francis Kurkdjian provided a linear structure. The video advertisement, directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino is very suggestive and presents a young couple assimilated to the very notion of a fragrance that can be shared, while the two bottles become as one.
