Strong & Distinguished but Fades Quicker than other JPG Scents
on 30 August 2015
I'd like to have given this 5 stars but this is isn't my favorite scent and the smell does fade quicker than Le Male, my preferred Jean Paul Gaultier scent. If you love the smell though and don't mind it fading after a while then this represents great value at the current Amazon price but (if you're bothered) be warned that the tin is just the basic red tin - it doesn't come with the picture print on it as shown above. The bottle looks great though, very stylish.
I've worn JPG Le Male for about 20 years now and have been trying new scents. This of course is very different and I would say much stronger initially and more in your face - I think Le Male suits all occasions as it has a strong scent but is also subtle. This is much harder hitting when you first put it on and I find a little overpowering unless you only use a very small amount (although as I said it does seem to fade much quicker than Le Male). In that respect it should last a long time - personally I'd only use it for nights out or perhaps outdoor events as it's a bit too much for me for general daytime usage. The spices are much stronger than the woody tones if that helps describe the scent which, for me, makes it smell less luxurious than other JPG scents such as Le Male, and slightly similar to more middle-of-road lower cost scents.
Overall a nice scent, just be warned it's very strong initially so don't over do it.
