ive written other reviews, but those were when i just started my fragrance journey and knew absolutely nothing and had a very inexperienced nose. I have now had lots and lots of experience, as this hobby has become a huge part of my life, and when all my excitement over new things calms down and i rate everything on a fair scale, Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male is, in my opinion, the greatest mens fragrance in the history of the industry.
First of all, the scent itself. From the amazind Mint and Lavender opening, to the absolutely hypnotizing Vanilla middle and drydown, this fragrance is absolute sex in a bottle, an absolute lady killer, and must be by far the most complimented fragrance of all time.
Secondly, many fragrances can smell good, but do they last? and can someone smell me from over there...With Le Male, there is never any worry about that. It projects like a beast and lasts long. That power, coupled with the hypnotizing scent, makes for an absolute gem.
Third. Yeah. Its popular. Its one of the best sellers in the history of the the industry and for damn good reason. Just because it sells alot doesnt mean it should be looked down on. If it wasnt so amazing, it wouldnt be so popular. Its as simple as that. Its overall financial success in the fragrance industry shouldnt be something that you fault this fragrance for, but something that should be recognized and rewarded.
Ive been very very very pleased with alot of fragrances, but there is no fragrance in this world that has left the impression that Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier has left me. When i smelled it on a friend for the first time, i was absolutely shocked. SHOCKED.
This IS the greatest fragrance of all time, and it shouldnt be knocked because so many of tried copying it and it shouldnt be knocked because it doesnt smell funky or like a womens perfume.
Basketball has Michael Jordan. Mens fragrance has Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male.
All hail, The Holy Grail.
