Arrived on the market in March 2009 under the name Ma Dame Eau Fraiche, this feminine floral fruity perfume is a flanker to 2008’s Ma Dame, a fragrance conceived in order to reach a younger audience, compared to the typical customer that was represented by a woman who normally prefers Classique. Presented as a summer limited edition and described with the phrases “between fantasy and reality exists an Eden imagined by Jean Paul Gaultier” and “Ma Dame celebrates summer with a lighter, Eau Fraiche, fragrance in a beautiful bottle inspired by Gaultier’s Garden”, this scent done a fine job in fulfilling its mission.
Just like its predecessor, the olfactory structure of Ma Dame Eau Fraiche remains faithful to the classic olfactory pyramid with its base, heart and top notes, and resorts to a limited number of ingredients in order to embody this interesting concept. And taking into account that Ma Dame was one of my wife’s favorites (after the iconic Classique, of course), I considered that this re-interpretation could be exactly the type of ideal Eau de Toilette for the summer time period of the year.
Analyzed from an olfactory point of view, the first minutes in Ma Dame Eau Fraiche are bursting with the aroma of a refreshing orange zest, followed quite closely by the accord of sparkling rose, a citrus-floral combination that feels totally enchanting on the skin. The final stage in Ma Dame Eau Fraiche brings forward an exquisite blend shaped from the elegant cedar and the sensual note of musk, a mixture destined to confer balance to the perfume and to provide a beguiling trail.
The flacon that contains Ma Dame Eau Fraiche is a replica of the original flask presented with Ma Dame, having the same transparent glass engraved with a feminine silhouette over the surface and the name of the perfume printed in a playful font at the upper side of the bottle.
