Le Mâle Eau Fraiche fragrance notes

Reviews of Le Mâle Eau Fraiche

Le Male Popeye Eau Fraiche by Jean Paul Gaultier is a scent of the combination of sweetness, freshness, flowers and woody notes. From sharpness to gentleness, this is how Popeye presents itself.

The sharpness of sage and woody notes is complemented by mint and at the same time, toned down by an unusual, delicate note of bubble gum. Aromatic green notes present in this flanker of Le Male resound for about two hours and then give way to vanillic and ambery base.

At this stage, Popeye emanates warmth. Only a strong smell at the place of application of the fragrance allows you to detect the scent of green and woody aromas now.

Opens with a fresh blast but quickly turns into a metrosexual sweet cinnamon.
Certainly not Fraiche and not for me.

Fragrance: 5/10
Projection: 7/10

Minty cool and kinda airy to my nose in the opening. That's the part that's light. The heavier, powdery sweetness comes in next and dominates into the drydown. Has a cooling feel and I also get some light woody notes throughout.

This is a playful, casual daytime scent that may be too sweet for hot weather. With it's sweetened projection prowess, might be outstanding in cool weather.

Very good projection and longevity. This will last all workday.

If you remove the bubblegum opening and the mint and tonka which provide an abrasive quality, you are left with Mariel by H2O+ (wonderful scent on a woman, alas, no longer in production). I give it a thumbs up for taking me down memory lane.

I tried the Superman flanker today which is not in the directory but is the same fragrance as Popeye flanker. Same notes, same composition.

Quite redundant if you own the original, however a rather nice variation of the theme.

For a younger crowd that enjoys life and enjoys enjoying it.
Carefully with the application as you might appear as senseless, tasteless clown looking for attention. Thing is a bit fresher but highly potent, at least on my skin.

Originality 2/10
Scent 8/10
Longevity 8/10
Projection 7/10
62,5% - rather high rating in terms of numbers, but however my overall impression is "neutral" because to me the original is the king.
