About Monsieur Eau du Matin

A fragranced body spray to accompany JPG's Monsieur skincare range.

Reviews of Monsieur Eau du Matin

Really nice addition to the JPG fragrance collection for men! Monsieur Eau du Matin, as has been mentioned by other reviewers, is an atypical body spray-type scent vs. a typical EdT / EdP. Says the box for MEdM:

"Invigorating Fragrance - This fragrance is enriched with a variety of citrus and cedar wood essential oils, known for their toning properties. Rub over the body for a discreet fragrance. Dermatologically tested."

Anyone who is familiar with the toned-down, body spray oriented "Eau Genereuse" flankers by Cartier of its standard scents (e.g. Declaration, Must de Cartier, Pasha; also, the "Relaxante" flanker of Eau de Cartier), the "Aroma d'Orange Verte Eau Tonique GivreÚ" flanker by Hermes, or Jean Paul Gaultier's "Le Male La Cologne Toniquw"...you know that these all have a more specialized formulation meant to be stimulating, lighter, and meant for warmer weather.

MEdM is squarely in this category. Like several (not all) of the flankers I'd mentioned, MEdM is more of a body mist meant to invigorate all over the body vs. get applied primarily on the pulse points of the face, arms, etc. The scent is an Eau de Cologne in the tradition of Imperial de Guerlain, Eau de Rochas, Muelhens 4711 (not as heavy), and the like: Citrus aromatics with slight greenness added from juniper berries / cade or any other piny essence, and light woods (like cedar, in this case). Longevity is not profound, though it's not supposed to be; the primary focus of MEdM is the wearer, although others may catch a whiff of the wonderful essential oils before they finally fade away.

MEdM comes across more like an accessory men's grooming product than a bottle of fragrance per se. This would explain its low price and peculiar characteristics. An interesting product, caveat emptor for sure with this distinct item if you are an avid scent collector.

Take Mugler Cologne.. take out most of the vetiver, add a ton of citrus.. cut the longevity in half, maybe even less, and voila! Not that Monsieur Eau du Matin is lacking depth, because it definitely isn't. It's an EDC, meant to wear light and feel more transparent. Well made, but just not for me, as I have come to expect much more from my fragrances.

A classic "Eau de Cologne" type of fragrance, surprising for dignity and balance. Bergamot, cedar and petitgrain "cast" a really conservative (anyway bright) and discreet aura. Monsieur Eau du Matin deflects completely from the typical "anti-classic" and provocative Gaultier's style. This fragrance "screams" measured discretion indeed. The aroma starts lemony, green (green peels/leaves) and fizzy (dominant bergamot) in order to easily morph in to a lighter and more subtle cedary stuff so green and spicy. Really evocative and almost exotic. A pleasure, easy but impeccable. Synthetic vibe not beyond the limits. Medium rating just for the "overly runned" style which means any hard work of "olfactory research" behind.

This is really nice. I do not care for Gaultier's masculine scents--in fact Le Male is one of my two most hated scents (Kouros being the other)--but I love this. It is a beautiful, light eau de cologne that you can wear anytime, in any situation. It is perfect for the office. The bergamot, petitgrain, cedarand gaiac wood are perfectly balanced. Like a classic cologne, there is not much sillage and minimal longevity, but when the mood strikes or the situation calls for it, this is nice. Wonderful line of grooming products. I am glad to have found a Gaultier I like. Ironically, I think that his feminine fragrances are stunning--especially Classique and Fragile--an I am always happy to smell them on a woman.

I endorse this for the following reasons. It is a pleasant, natural-smelling green scent. It is not expensive. It has accompanying skin care products for effortless layering.
Admittedly, it is low-key. "Discreet" is how the advertising describes it. It sits very close to the skin and doesn't last long.
It is a bit like Mugler Cologne but greener, leafier and lacks the vetiver note.
Notes: bergamot, petitgrain, cedar, gaiac wood.

If indeed its poor longevity is due to good quality natural essential oils as L' Aventurier suggests then I am glad I went for a bottle of Eau du Matin ... I first tried it when it was launched and I liked it but I wasn't convinced because of ... its poor longevity... at that time I already liked more TM Eau de Cologne. Recently however when I rediscovered Eau du Matin, it's subtlety won me over and now I enjoy wearing it very much. I use it as a body mist after shower and ... I am not stingy during application. This may explain why on my skin Eau du Matin lasts for quite a few hours ... very close to my skin though. This would normally somewhat bother me, however, with this one I don't mind... yet! I am sure though that these 100ml will not last me more than a couple of months... so I better slow down!
