Le Beau et La Belle

Today, I would like to introduce you to the new Jean Paul Gaultier fragrances that just have launched with a cute little story written in paradise…

IN GAULTIER’S GARDEN

One morning, Jean Paul Gaultier walked into his Factory. It was large and lively and happy. He looked at the women, and he looked at the men. And his mind wandered to leisurely pastimes. And he thought, «Women and men should spend time together, it is good

On the first day, he created a garden. The garden was magical and enchanting, and in the spirit of easy virtues everywhere!

On the second day, he created La Belle and Le Beau. Born from JPG Classic and Le Mâle, but as butt naked as their first day in this world. And they’re not even cold, those two! On the third day, he created the most delightful, divine and delectable sins … On the fourth day he rested. In his garden, the party was in full swing. Everyone was in the mood for discovery, adventure; of themselves and each other. And it smelled (al)most divine!

THE BOTTLES

Jean Paul Gaultier created the bottle of La Belle – and the bottle appeared. In the shape of a woman’s bust. It was red dipped in pink, and spoke of modesty as well as the most lascivious licentiousness. Around the neck, gold roses formed a necklace, a modest covering that serve only as an invitation to a final and temptation-filled unveiling …

Then, Jean Paul Gaultier created the bottle of Le Beau, and the bottle appeared. In the shape of a naked chest. It was green, and it shimmered. A leaf of vine, in gold, carefully placed where the eyes might linger.

Jean Paul Gaultier looked at the exquisite busts and exclaimed: «These two were made to lead us into temptation!» And they were.

THE PACKAGING

Jean Paul Gaultier created the casing of La Belle, and the case appeared in the garden. It was the softest green, almost almond, and amongst the foliage of this very modern Eden, matched with everything. Its gold letters gleamed, and it was oh-so-tempting to touch the fruit, – and it wasn’t even forbidden!

Jean Paul Gaultier created the casing for Le Beau, and the case appeared at the foot of a bush. It was emerald green, so dark, reminding us of all that is lush in this world. Its golden letters glimmering like the honey of original desire.

Jean Paul Gaultier looked at the two provocative, sexy cases, and said: «Presentation is everything – and nothing!» And it was.

THE FRAGRANCES

Jean Paul Gaultier opened the case of La Belle, took the bottle, and inhaled deeply the essence of the perfume. It smelled of oriental vanilla, but a vanilla so fresh, it quenched the soul. He could also identify vetiver; where the miraculous smell of fruit, a pear, was clearly pointing.

Jean Paul Gaultier opened Beau‘s case and, closing his eyes, inhaled (no denials here). The smell of coconut wood inspired a profound desire to relax, while the bergamot and the tonka bean whispered to him that lounging was the most refreshing of sins.

Jean Paul Gaultier inhaled both perfumes together, and declared: «They go well together. Forever and ever.» And thus a world was created.

PERFUMERS

Quentin Bisch and Sonia Constant teleported themselves to Gaultier’s garden.
As is their way, they emerged themselves into this strange and soothing exotic world. These two, who love to explore the world and who know it so well, came back mesmerised by The New Land, with a special place in their heart for La Belle and Le Beau. And as we know, the heart is never far from the nose.

Contest: Betty Boop and Jean Paul Gaultier

JPG Contest

Hello my dear readers! This is not an April’s fool. Today, is the day… I have something amazing for you to win! Just read further and explore that little surprise.

Have fun discovering Gaultier’s new Summer Edition fragrances, that have become an essential rendez-vous in our beauty must-have calendars. This year, the two limited editions, Classique and Le Mâle are adorned with the icons Betty Boop and Popeye for a match made in heaven.

The tin can, the Jean Paul Gaultier’s signature in stainless steel, receives a summer make-over in a striking metallic blue for Popeye and a powdery pink for Betty Boop. Gaultier tells it straight: The Gaultier can is 40 this year and is rust-free. Uh, wrinkle-free. The most everyday object revolutionized by the fragrance world hides an innate ability to disguise itself as a can of spinach. Even the label is there. Popeye won’t even notice!

Classique Betty Boop

Classique Eau Fraîche
The fragrance: a torrid, sugar syrup. An unusual blend assembled around white flowers created by perfumer Daphné Bugey.

ORIENTAL FLORAL
Top notesLemon sorbet, ginger and sugar cane juice
Middle notes: Exotic tara, jasmine and orange blossom
Base notes: Vanilla, musk and neo-labdanum

Ginger, indivisible from Classique, is found as an overdose of gourmand: crystalline, reminiscent of a lemon sorbet; sharp, yes, but sweetened with sugar cane juice. Sugar cane, with a sensual edge from the Labdanum Neo. Vanilla is also present. But musk has the final word and rushes to let the brain know we’ll be back for more. Eaux Fraiches smell of lazy summers: “Oh my – You smell so nice“!

The limited edition hits the shelves TODAY!
Classique Eau Fraîche Betty Boop (100 ml): CHF 136.00
