    Default ** NEW** GAULTIER MASCULINE: Kokorico

    Due for September 7th release! Jean Paul Gaultier's new masculine Kokorico

    Olfactory Family: Woody - Cocoa
    Head notes: fig leaves.
    Notes: Raw Cocoa Bean.
    Background notes: Wood.

    With top notes of fig leaves for energy.
    In middle notes, raw beans and bitter cocoa contributing the aphrodisiac.
    In substance, the woods give power and virility.





    It sounds/feels a bit like B*Men in its composition, but I guess the proof is in the smelling

    Thanks for the info SoS, it will be interesting to try.

    Energy, aphrodisiac and virility though? Are horny teenage boys the demographic of choice these day?

    As far as I know, the EDT is in shiny black, and the aftershave lotion in the matte black 'head' flacon.

    I'm pretty certain that the "Le Male" torso flacon is in fact the 'head' flacon seen from the side.
    I give 'em props for creativity!

    As a Gaultier Fan im excited, cause i love all fragrances from gaultier.

    The Name is, hell, is ridiculous, Cocorico is a name of a childrens TV show here at Brazil, lol.

    But the notes sounds nice, i like fig and love chocolate.

    Also, i expect the torso as the main EDT bottle, that face is hilariantly ridiculous, lol



    Its a Kurkdjian creation???

    Looks like the general popularity of L'Instant Pour Homme EDP was noted by somebody.

    Provided that it's not the most offensive of synthetic chocolates, I expect to be loving this one.

    And the bottle is totally sharp. Manages to maintain JPG outrageousness without outraging. I dig it.

    Amazing, Very excited to check this one out. Even though the only fragrance I like from the house allot is Le Male, everything they produce keeps me interested.
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

    Hmm, the chocolate version of Le Male's vanilla maybe? Anyway, I love both fig and cocoa notes, so I'll definitely want to check this one out. I only hope the wood in the base is a subtle and smooth wood and not really strong. I hope the fig and especially the cocoa are the main emphasis.

    Also, I love the bottles.

    Poor english translation of a French article:



    Kokorico perfume - Jean Paul Gaultier:
    A fragrance full of energy, manly and Aphrodisiacal ...

    Jean Paul Gaultier - Kokorico - Pub on September 7
    A wooded cocoa, ultra-addictive!

    With this new perfume you prove by wearing it you'll be ultra-stylish! This new fragrance is a must have for being at the forefront of originality.

    Kokorico
    a name of audacity and humor.

    The cry of men uninhibited, assertive and s'afffichent.

    A bottle that plays with appearances. The "sham"!
    A theme dear to the enfant terrible of fashion. Mouth face sexy silhouette of a man's body in profile.

    Jean Paul Gaultier - Kokorico - The Line.
    The famous box metal box is revisited in the film.
    It is red and fiery. This new fragrance is a value sure to make you attractive and charismatic, you're sure not deceive you. Your friends will love.


    Sounds a bit like 'Engrish' in the translation, but I think we get the drift...

    I predict generic woody fail. The name and bottle are certainly enough to grab attention, though, and that counts for something in today's market. I thought the bottle was ludicrous until I saw the side-view pic, with the shout-out to Le Male's torso. That's very clever.

    Count me in as interested. I was recently at an IFF fragrance event and they were pushing chocolate as a top note - they must have released a new aroma chemical.
    Anyways, JPG who originally gave us "body" now gives us "head" - I like this very 80s take on an Art Deco look. Its high concept reminds me a bit of Bertelli’s famous sculpture Continuous Profile, of Mussolini.

    Cheesy name! I was actually expecting coconut, and NOT cocoa (since Coco Rico is also the name of an old, still extant "coconut" soda drink.) This looks like my kind of thing, I wonder how the contrast between the fake fig and the cocoa plays out. The marketing is ludicrous (or perhaps, "effective") selling the fragrance as some sort of mating potion.

    I have so many cocoa fragrances right now, but I always end up being curious about these, and I do like both Le Male and Fleur du Male. This seems to be so different, though, but I hope that at least the smell is gorgeous, and with at least some substance. Fynnu that Gaultier jumped to the cocoa bandwagon THIS late? Better late than never, one can never have enough chocolate, especially in such low calorie fashion.

    This one sounds promising. JPG, for all my mockery of the brand, does well with regards to quality. I'll certainly want to sample this when it comes out.

    It will be awesome to read all the guys predicting another "typical" department shop counter fragrance. Considering JPG's track record, why not give it the benefit of the doubt ? Nah, it will be another boring Canali !
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    From the bottle to the notes, this one makes me think of Comme des Garcons. When i saw the bottle at fragrantica i thought that CDG was launching a new limited bottle edition of their first fragrance, only after that i noticed it was a JPG creation. The notes also makes me think of CDG, but with only three listed is hard to know exactly what it will smell like.
    And today i just reminded that PUIG Group is now the major owner of Jean Paul Gaultier after Hermès sold its stake. And PUIG also owns CDG. Curious to see if this one will really have any CDG influence, and also if this change of senior partner will afect the house`s style...

    I´m not happy with the fact that PUIG is taking care of the JPG fragrance side of the buisiness in future.
    Puig´s Prada and Carolina Herrera´s are ok, but just that.
    Shiseido/ BPI did a great job in the past for JPG,I mean le Male was a hit, Narciso Rodruguez fragrances both for men or women were great also. And let´s not forget Serge Lutens fragrances. I hope this one is stil made by BPI/Shiseido. I´m afraid Puig is step one to boredom for the JPG line.

    I have the impression that the Le Male torso is another product or bottle, cause the head side view doesn`t match the torso in all the contours...

    I didn`t knew that shiseido also owned a part of JPG stakes, and that explains a lot about how the line was conducted. Considering how recent it was the announcement that Puig bought the Hermés part, maybe this one didn`t have their influence yet. But, you never know, the transiton may have been only announced now. We'll have to wait until September to see how good is this one
