Jean Paul Gaultier Turns Two Iconic Fragrances into Superhero Scents


March 17, 2017 | BY AFP Relaxnews

With spring just around the corner, Jean Paul Gaultier has lifted the lid on the label's latest limited Eau Fraîche editions of the iconic "Classique" and "Le Mâle" scents, dressed up as the legendary superheroes Wonder Woman and Superman.

There have been many creative and artistic editions of Jean Paul Gaultier's "Le Mâle" and "Classique" fragrances, always with attention-grabbing designs. After tattooed and lingerie-clad versions and character editions featuring Popeye and Betty Boop, Jean Paul Gaultier has brought two superheroes -- Wonder Woman and Superman -- to its iconic fragrance line.


"Classique - Eau Fraîche Wonder Woman" opens with notes of lemon sorbet, ginger and sugar cane juice, followed by middle notes of Tahitian Tiare flower, jasmine tea and orange blossom. The base follows through with sweet and captivating notes of vanilla, musk and neo-labdanum.


The male fragrance, "Le Mâle - Eau Fraîche Superman," has top notes of neroli, mint and aldehydes, followed by light ambery notes of sclarene and sage. This fresh and light springtime fragrance rounds off with base notes of vanilla, sandalwood and tonka bean.

While the bottles keep their original shape, the new editions come embellished with superhero pictures. Dressed in her unmistakable costume, Wonder Woman is seen busting through the strapless dress on the iconic "Classique" bottle, while Superman punches through the "Le Mâle" bottle as he flies off to save the day. Both are finished with the "I Love Gaultier" slogan.


These 2017 Eau Fraîche editions are due out this month.
