I find this to be a very ordinary, girlie girl scent. It's sweet and cute and oh so not me. If you are into sexy, spicy oriental scents, this one isn't for you.

I love this perfume. I steered clear of this years ago because of the bottle, really!! But I was in Sephora's and was looking at something new and low and behold there was that bottle again. I tried it and fell in love. This is it, my signature. It last a good 6-7 hours and the dry dow is as good as the first spray. Very feminine. I will never be without it,

About a year go I got a gift voucher for my birthday and didn't manage to walk to far away with it since the perfume store was just around the corner :) .Purchased the 30 ml botte of EDP and loved the look of it and the feel of it too when I hold it to apply the scent: it falls well into the palm and is very comfortable. The bottle design is actually not JPG's invention: the first ever ( officially recorded at least ) torso-shaped bottle was created by Elsa Schiaparelli for her perfume "Shocking!" (1936), which was proportion-wise the exact replica of Mae West's torso, so everything new is indeed only the well-forgotten old! :) I am actually glad that JPG has brought this idea back - there was nothing similar for decades on the market. Now about the scent: I am not impressed, at all. First of all, Armani Code has outdone it. I know, Classique was there first, and had there been no Armani Code - it would probably have had a much higher value, for my nose at least, but when there's an almost identical scent out there, but edgier, sexier and simply with more personality - why bother buying this one? The smell itself is good, you can tell right away that it didn't come cheap to the wearer, it's a rich, full-bodied, verging on being a weapon of mass destruction when oversprayed kind of thing, but it is still a very plain bouquet: it is just missing that little something and it feels therefore average - désolé! And therefore it is somewhat hard to place it timewise: for an evening fragrance it's lacking a certain darkness, and for the daywear it almost too sweet/heavy and makes one feel like she's trying too much to get attenton. I felt right like a tart trying to seduce my boss when I put it on, although I had nothing of the like in mind!! So it is a rather loud look-at-me fragrance without enigma. I personally prefer scents that have a promise of something more even after they fully develop. This one will give you the needed attention for about a minut, but it will not help you keep it. I will use this in winter cosying up with the hubby/best friends, for big family dinners and cocktail-time occasions with no possibilities of flirting and when I feel that I need to smell womanly and pretty without showing too much personality.

This fragrance is just "meh". Its sweet and appealing but nothing spectacular. Its a sugary, but not to young, more for grown ups. I don't find it very strong either for being edp and expected it to last much longer on my skin.

Good thing I sprayed this on a paper because when I smelled it, i instantly got a mild headache. It doesn't smell bad, but this will def be headache heaven for me. I smelled the Anise at the beginning and the Orange Blossom. It was pretty strong. Don't know about the dry down cause obviously it was on paper and I threw it out. But it was ok for me. Wouldn't wear it.

Test drove this after reading all the great reviews. I have dry skin on my body that is notorious for eating fragrances. But from all I read, I thought JPG's Classique wulld be a powerhouse that would endure. Not so on my skin. An hour later, there's a nice vanilla-ish scent that is very faint only if I put my nose right on my wrist where I sprayed two shpritzes of Classique. Darn. Lovely, but fades away into almost nothing in no time flat. This is why I wear and love heavy hitters like Fracas, Opium, and my number-one all-time favorite, Coco.

This fragrance drives men absolutely crazy. It is a musky scent with a vanilla base mixed with warm floral notes. It's powerful, intoxicating, sexy and seductive. If you want a man to find you irresistable then wear this on a date. You can't go wrong. A bit overpowering for day wear but at night it is just divine and the staying power is insane. It lasts 12 hours+. But less is more with this fragrance. You only need the tiniest amount as it's incredibly strong. Be aware also that the EDT and EDP smell very different. The EDP is softer, sweeter and more complex. I much prefer the EDP. I've been wearing this on and off for over ten years but recently have fallen so in love with it that I'm never going to give it up again. Some women may not like it but men LOVE it and that's what counts!

I am wearing this now and will be SO glad to wash it off. It's so strong and to me smells just like an incense shop which is not what I want to smell like. It smells like cheap incense - I like a bit of incense sometimes but DO NOT want to smell like it. So horrible, and the bottle seems cheap and nasty as well - I don't know if I just have a dud bottle though.

ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE!!!!! Although they smell really different from each other this EDP and the EDT of the same name are my two favorite scents, (with some of the Givenchy and Armani scents a close second) This one is a bit softer and more powdery but not sharp or bitter just classically feminine. Dry down smells better than initial spritz which is rare in perfumes. Although I can't describe any perfume by the official terms or anything I have smelled and tried many many perfumes and these JPG's are always a cut above the rest. I can't stop smelling myself!!!!

I do so love the EDP version of JPG Classique. It is an oriental fragrance with an ultra-feminine, tongue-in-cheek, hairspray/makeup/powder twist. The bottle is beautiful and sexy, the perfume even more so. When I was an exchange student in France the girl I stayed with wore Classique - I loved the way she smelled, so sophisticated, warm, and interesting. At the time I was in high school and felt that I did not have the level of sophistication to pull this off. I came back to Classique in my late 20s and wore it exclusively for 2 years. Today it is still in regular rotation in my perfume wardrobe. I find Classique to have excellent longevity and big sillage (spray wisely), and it consistently garners compliments and inquiries ("What perfume are you wearing? It's very pretty!").

I like it! Not as much as the edt which comes up as a wonderful vanilla but I may purchase this in the summer as to my nose it is a predominantly rose based frag. It softens quite nicely also, not too overpowering for an edp.

I got a sample of this and it languished in my drawer for some time. Yesterday, I found it and decided to try it ... and I fell in love with it. Mind you, at first spray I did not care for it. Scents that contain amber can be tricky at first. But as it dried down, I liked it more and more. I used to work at Sephora and I never paid too much attention to this. Then again, it's hard to individualize a scent in a place where they sell perfume. The air is thick with so many frags. I LOVE strong, oriental scents, so as soon as I become a bit more flush, I'll definitely get a bottle of JPG's Classique. So yummy. And excellent staying power, too!

I do not own this fragrance, but have the sample size of it. This is a lovely fragrance that is perfect for colder months. It has a subtle vanilla smell - sweet, not cloying and pretty.
This is the signature scent of one of my special friends and everytime I smell this perfume it reminds me of her and it makes me smile - and it smells good too! Its alot like Armani Code, just a little bit more feminine and soft - where armani code is much more sexier. I love the bottle too! I might consider buying this...

I didn't like this perfume much. It had a classy smell and was not unappealing in the sense that it seemed "ugly" smelling or anything, but the scent was very, very strong (for those who like it, this fortunately coincides with great staying power) and seemed for someone much older than me (19). I can't comment on the notes, because it just felt like some heady mixture to me. Very, very strong, and probably a great fragrance for a woman in her 40s or 50s

I brought this in the duty free in gatwick airport for 41 pounds, lovely bottle and very sexy smelling although having had the EDT I must say that I prefer the smell of the latter as it seems to be stronger than the EDP . I paid 45 pounds for the EDT only to find it for 31 pounds duty free!

I got a sample of Classique EDP and have been testing it the last week. I have to say that I like it a lot, especially the vanilla undertone. It may be a bit too overpowering for me to wear to school or work because I prefer softer (fresh, sporty) fragrances. However, for more festive occasions I would definitely wear this kind of fragrance. Very sweet but not too sweet. I think I may wish for this fragrance this upcoming Christmas.

I fell in love with this perfume the moment I smelled it - beautiful mix of roses, rum, warm amber and vanilla. So warm, feminine, and relaxing. And my boyfriend absolutely LOVES it, ladies. :) Other men have told me they love this one too, so I would categorize this as a "man-catcher" fragrance! :) I only wish that they would put a little lid on the "to-go" $44 size, so that when I carry it in my purse, I don't have to put it in a baggie to prevent leaking. I highly recommend this fragrance if you like warm, feminine, vanilla-based, "man-magnet" perfumes!

Since perfumes are extremely personal, this is mostly my experience in finding and wearing this scent. I don't think there's a better way to find a perfume than to go try the one you're looking for out, but I'll try to be informative, lol.
For background, I'm into orientals, pretty much. I love dark, heady scents that are passionate. My favorites, for reference, are YSL's Opium, Dior's Hypnotic Poison, and Armani Code and Givenchy's Very Irresistible Sensual.
So I was standing at Sephora's big wall o' expensive scents, going through the check list of ones I wanted to try out, and I was being utterly underwhelmed by all of them. Gucci Guilty? More like Gucci "Mild Indiscretion" It was just weak. A lot of women describe it as "raw sensual power", but I got "mild, overdone pg-13" . Bulgari Omnia? Faded away into mild floral woodsiness. Versace Versus? Yes, this perfume versus my nose, head and tummy. It was like being kicked in the face at first whiff. Narciso Rodriguez's For Her was really nice, but not what I was looking for, at the moment, but I can see myself wearing it sometime. No offense to what I'm sure are lovely scents owned by lovely ladies, just not for me. So I'm probably burning out my nose, when I notice this shiny little glass woman torso clad in a spangly lingerie thing, with a can as the packaging. It reminded me in some perverse way of a mail-order bride, and I picked it up. There was no way this could be any kind of a classy scent.
I melted. I'm a sucker for amber, sandalwood, and roses, but I never thought they could all go so well together.
With Classique, I feel pretty much like a femme fatale meets old school hollywood. Even better, it's not ridiculously expensive as perfumes go.
I think it's a really special scent, especially to stand out from a sea of similar ones.

One of the best scents on the market. However it doesn't smell the best on me, for some reason the reaction with my skin or products I use dull down the gorgeous smell I expect from it. It is true, the EDP and EDT smell alot different, would spend the extra on the EDP any day. Worth a buy for people who love rich, fruity and feminine scents.

I love this it probably is my HG scent, or at least my go-to scent. I got this for Christmas when I was 19, when it first came out in the UK and loved it immediately. It is one of the only perfumes I wear that always gets comments (good ones!). I stray from it every so often, but always come back to it and I love discovering it all over again. I love smelling my hair that has 'wafted' over my neck when i wear it, and it gets better with the drydown. I just love it.
It does smell different on different people, when my BF wears it it's v different so you just have to try it and see - she's much better in Angel or Coco.
I don't see it as an 'old lady' scent, but I'm 35 so maybe it is older than the sweeter celeb generics that my students favor - which smell lovely on them, but I don't want to smell like a teen (or Brittany Spears!!).
I'm aslo loving Kiehls Musk mixed with vanilla oils at the mo - getting lovely comments from this too.
