I would love to smell and test this? I inquired about it at a Jean Paul Gaultier counter at the downtown Toronto Sears counter and was informed that it's supposedly an exclusively European release. I hope this information is incorrect. Even if the original is widely detested, its mass appeal and success cannot be disputed. According to the SA, Le Male is still their number one seller, even 15 years after its release. Hopefully, one of the other major dept stores will carry it this fall. Does anyone have any knowledge of this new edition being released anywhere inNorth America?
I think the intent is to distribute in North America in fall. I think the SA didn't know what they were talking about.
It may be that Sears won't carry it. There may be an article about that can be located on the home page of Basenotes.
