    Default Gaultier^2 - your thoughts, opinions, etc.

    Last night I was researching vanilla fragrances and this kept popping up. It seems pretty nice, but there are so many varying opinions that I couldn't really get a grasp on what exactly this smelled like...

    So my question is, whats it smell like to you, is it worth buying, and would I probably like it based on what I own and love (gourmands)?

    Thank you

    By coincidence I tried this yesterday. It is SOOOOOOO sweet. I've never experienced anything like it. I don't like sweet scents, and this has a painful intensity of sweetness. I don't normally care for amber, but I have to say this has an amazing amber note: spicy, complex, earthy, toasty, nutty. For me the amber was the centre, rather than musk or vanilla. The over-all effect was something like rootbeer & cream soda on steroids. Not at all my sort of scent, but it was quite a ride!

    Just like Ody, it was way too sweet for me. You might like it, though.

    Ody has described G2 quite well. I love G2 a lot, for all its musky amber/vanilla sweetness. For me it is worth buying, and not too common. If you like gourmands, G2 will be one of your most interesting.

    I have a sample of this and more I wear it more I like it. Its sexy as hell but definitely on the feminine part of unisex. I can see myself wearing it if I was gigolo but right now It is not bottle worthy to me.

    It is very hard to describe. It is more amber than vanilla and reminds me bit jil sander man absolute.

    As others have noted, quite sweet but wearable. I like others in their line a bit better.

    I came across the massage oil at Winners & have to say that smelled really good but I would never wear this scent. Way too cloyingly sweet. Unique though I will give it marks for that.

    It's an amber bomb to my nose. Dominates the whole frag. It's very syrupy as well. I like sweet but this is so sweet it gives me toothaches... but it should be right up your alley then...lol

    More amber, less vanilla. Louder and more feminine than Pi. Pi is easier on nose, and more gourmand. Pi smells like you could drink it anytime. Gaultier 2 not. I definitely prefer Pi over Gaultier 2 but if I had to pick party fragrance out of this 2, it would be Gaultier 2 which is more edgy.

    Anyway, everytime I smell Gaultier 2 I see tall, vamp girl with black hairs wearing tight black latex.

    I'm not particularly enamoured. Judging by your tastes I think it would probably appeal to you.
