    Default Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra Male (2015)

    Jean Paul Gaultier launches its new fragrance Ultra Male in summer 2015. The fragrance is a reinterpretation or enhanced version of the popular original Le Male from 1995. Ultra Male, announced as masculine, intense, seductive and at the same time delicate, is supposedly built on contrasts notes and is a spicier version of the original.







    It opens with citrus notes of bergamot, along with juicy pear, black lavender and mint. The heart includes spices of cumin and cinnamon, with aromatic clary sage. The base consists of black vanilla, amber and woods. It is signed by Francis Kurkdjian.


    The face of the advertising campaign is model Jarrod Scott. The fragrance arrives in a characteristic torso bottle, this time colored in dark blue with black stripes. It is available as 40, 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette Intense.

    Black vanilla, black lavender. More like another black day in perfumery.

    I used to like the original in '95 when it first came out, but got bored with it by the time I (almost) finished that first bottle. For nostalgic reasons I picked up a bottle recently, or should I say, the limited edition metal flask, in a metal container... just to have it, I suppose. Have yet to spray it once... One day, perhaps, I will give it a try, otherwise it just remains a part of the "nostalgic collection."

    I see cumin... Not my fave note. I'll have to test before making up my mind. Then again, I actually liked Le Male Terrible.

    Sounds pretty interesting. Theres so many flankers, and limited versions of Le Male....And honestly, i've never seen even one of them in a store. Where the hell do they sell them? I bought fleur du male, online. I think i saw Terrible on Nordstrom once.

    Hopefully i can give this one a sniff!

    Thanks OP!

    What the heck is black vanilla? And black lavender? Sounds like the marketing department went over the top here... but I'll be curious to give this a sniff when it hits stores.

    Isn't all vanilla black? That's what i've thought. Black lavender, never heard/seen about that.

    And apparently, this is the real Black Lavender. Hopefully, JPG was able to capture his essence.

    At first I wasn't interested at all as I don't really care for Le Male, but now that I have seen the real Black Lavender, all I know is that I want to smell like him.

    I tested this , waaaaaaaay too sweet. It reminds me of something a Sorority bimbo named Amber or Becki would wear.

    Much prefer the original.

    Did Kurkdjian do all of the Le Male flankers?

    I really do not like the original anymore and I must admit if they made one that was really more lavender prominent I would love that, but this doesn't sounds like it is.
