    Default New Fragrance: John Paul Gaultier - Le Beau Male for Men




    Le Beau Male by Jean Paul Gaultier is a Aromatic Fougere fragrance for men. This is a new fragrance. Le Beau Male was launched in 2013. The nose behind this fragrance is Francis Kurkdjian. Top notes are wormwood and mint; middle notes are lavender, orange blossom and sage; base note is musk. (Yes, it's different.)

    So this will be another micro variation on Le Male with the addition of a wormwood/absinthe note? The bottle looks pretty cool! Thanks for the info, I'll keep an eye out for it.

    Even though it's a flanker and looks a bit tamer, Kurkdjian probably won't disappoint.

    We haven't gotten their last two releases (Kokorico and Kokorico Night) in the US yet.

    So this will hit the US when, 2015?

    The Macys by me has Kokorico though.

    Did a double take... but yep, definitely there.

    I don't know if you weren't told by the marketing team, but they decided to not bring in Kokorico or the flanker of it. Beau should be at store level in the coming couple months. We already received the new Narciso L'eau and Elie Saab 30ml lmt ed, but that can't be sold until the new year. Wait until marketing, you'll get Beau...it smells great btw.

    This looks like the result of a wild and raunchy sex of Le Male & Fleur du Male. While all Le Male flankers are disappointing, Fleur du Male and its cologne version are very unique and different from each other, I'm interested to see how this one turn out

    The bottle is ugly though, the color combination seems off. I prefer my Male completely naked like FdM

    Sounds a WINNER, FKNG DOG I want this NAO.

    A fusion of Le Male and Fleur du Male + Kurkdjian, should not dissapoint! (I think theyve had no success when they tried other perfumers instead of Kurkdjian in their fragrances)

    Where did you smell it?

    What else is in the base besides musk? Unlisted vanillin?

    How sweet is it (compared to ...)?

    Very excited to try this. I used to love Le Male, but wore it too much and now I can't stand it. Hoping this is quite different, but equally as good as that one.

    Very interested (despite the awful bottles of the LeMale line) if this can capture both strong Mint, and strong neroli/orange blossom notes WITHOUT any excess candied-fruit aspects, or without the overly sweet base of LeMale.

    And he should be capable of making a great spring/summer flanker of it by reduction, then addition.

    I'm so pumped up for this! Le Male is a great frag, and this to emphasize a more "icy" attitude, are you kidding me? If this turns out to preserve the essential sexy Le Male vibe, while dancing with the icy factor, we got a big hit here.

    It's nice that Macy's will have it, but a shitload of dudes will be buying this, a little bit of exclusivity might have been nice. This could be my clubbing scent for warmer weather, and it'd suck if half the dudes be wearing this

    Smelled it today and it reminded me of a much sweeter version of Gucci Pour Homme 2, mixed with Joop Jump. Was alright, really fresh but nothing special. Was surprised how long it lasted too.

    Btw the perfume shop had the new Davidoff The Game, but forgot all about it.

    I know what you mean. If one needs to sport one of those wishy washy fragrances, at the very least, get them on a good price ( if you just want something for work). I get that vibe from fragrances from Canali, Dunhill, and St Dupont ( among many other brands).

    I don't like Le Male at all, but at least it's unique and powerful. Le Beau Male is feeble and generic.

    I tried it the other day, and, although I like Le Male (and Fleur du Male, which I thought was an excellent flanker), I agree with Riverwide: I'm afraid Le Beau Male smelt very ordinary to me. 'Generic' was the first word that came to mind...

    Was able to try it today, not good. Boring and generic, reminds me of one of the many sport scents that came out last year, just not sure which one.

    I'm surprised at the amount of generic references. This has a noticeable mint & absinthe accord in the top notes, which is hardly a common aspect of designer scents.

    I thought it was better than Le Male. Projection and longevity seem above average.
