I'm torn on my recent love for this and the Classique "X" both of which are very sexy. This is much spicier, with a very powdery headiness. Those who have said this has a boozy top note are correct, my mom said (re: the top note), "This smells like vanilla bourbon." Love this, definitely an evening fragrance. I feel like I should be slinking around in the George Michael "Freedom Video" ala Linda Evangelista when I wear this. Would certainly repurchase. This works wonderfully with my chemistry, which takes most crisp, fresh, citrus scents (even light florals) and turns them into an acidy version of Lemon Pledge. I didn't find the wear on this to be too intense and frankly it softened considerably after 30 min. Love it.

I've been using this perfume for four years now, and I still LOVE it. I am very much into fragrances that have a vanilla and soft wood undertones and this perfume gives me that. My body chemistry is very strong and most perfumes smell manly when I test them but this one is another story. This perfume accentuate my feminine side without being overwhelming. RECOMMENDED.

OMG love at first smell!!!!
Well ladies, I have just found my HG perfume, and I am here to share my happy recommendation! *clinks champagne glass :) I bought this perfume because I was looking for a "man-magnet" perfume, and two different guys during the last year have told me that this exact perfume was their favorite on women! So I took a chance and went ahead to order it before ever having smelling it, and I am thrilled!!! Some of the best $44 I have ever spent!!! This is gorgeous, delectable, sexy! I'm wearing it now around my house just for myself, it smells that good! It is so warm and inviting, and the rose essence keeps it from being too "gourmand." Just perfection in my book, wow!! The only thing that could make the "to-go" bottle better would be a smaller cap on the top rather than the big cannister-style container. The fragrance is gorgeous, I hope JPG never stops making it!!! :)
The day after I bought it, I wore it on my date with the guy I am dating, and the first thing we said when he got in his car was "wow you smell great!" He complimented me AGAIN on it later in the date! So I rate this one a home run! :D

I love the bottle. I think it's so pretty. I got this for Christmas and I've been trying it out every day. It definitely lasts a long time. My boyfriend noticed the lingering scent hours after I used just one spray. I prefer the Summer scent. I think this is a little too powdery and sweet smelling for my tastes.

i love this stuff. so creamy and lovely. i get some slight rose with some powdery sweetness all with a woody undertone. lasts well and is far from boring. a stunner in a unique bottle to boot!

I really wanted to like this. It has some good things going for it but I don't like the watery smell it has. When it dries down, it gets better (creamy and smooth vanilla) but its not as creamy as I would like (flowerbomb is creamier).

I am in no position to intelligently comment on this fragrance as it seems to talk to something animalic, something primordial in me. The moment I sniff it, I experience a sense of wholesome satisfaction, comfort, a sense of protection and safety. It has magical powers on me, and I wear it on those cozy days when I allow myself to enjoy the richness of the world all by myself, not letting anyone but my family and friends come close. The other fragrance that leads me to a similar feeling but in a more intellectualized form is Tihota.

I work at The Body Shop, so I cannot wear "other" fragrances while at work. But this is one of my all-time favorite fragrances... ever.
I fell in love with it when an old college-roommate wore it. I wear it when I go out or am not at work. My boyfriend loves it. I love the sexy packaging. It has lasting power without giving me a migraine (always important)...
I can't say anything negative about it other than the price, but come on... it's an eau de parfum, meaning it's more concentrated, and it's JPG.
Definitely smell both the EDP and the EDT, because they DO smell different.
I should probably add that I smell a woody, exotic, feminine floral-ness WITHOUT any fake-perfume, sugar, powdery, nastiness to it. I really think everyone smells things a tad differently. I would not describe this solely as floral. Nor is it sweet to me at all. In the past I've worn Vanilla, Clinique Happy, and CK Euphoria (which gave me migraines, unfortunately). This is above them all, hands down.

Love this! It just works with my chemistry so well and I cannot help but feel sexy when I put it on. I think you just know when a scent is yours (it's like putting on your best outfit-you just instantly have confidence and feel good) To me it's a floral/oriental, it's sweet, sexy, comfortable, and warm. I tend towards oriental/woody scents and this is perfect in my collection. I also hate anything too strong and this is always just right for me. I also wear Lolita Lempicka, Emporio Armani She, L de Lolita Lempicka, and Euphoria. If you love those I suggest giving Jean Paul EDP a go. And the bottle is so beautiful and would look good on any womans vanity tray!

Classique EDP is an extremely sweet, floral fragrance. The first thing that came to mind is bubble gum. To me, this fragrance smells like bubble gum with some cinnamon sprinkled on top. So, if you like sweeter fragrances with a touch of spice, Classique may be for you. Pleasant smelling but too sweet of a fragrance for me.

Gaultier2 is a hit with me so I wanted to branch out with other JPG frangrances and tried the Classique ...... the edt smelled horrible on me and the edp smelled better so I purchased a bottle but noted that hours later it started to turn on me and became headache inducing ..... it went back the next day. In my opinion Gaultier2 is the hit of JPG fragrance line, but sadly it is discontinued ...... why, why, why??????

While I love the rich orange blossom of vintage JPG Classique edt,
the edp is quite a different fragrance. Way too heavy and woody
on me. The body lotion and cream smell like the edp.

While I don't think this scent is in any way awful, it isn't anything spectacular, either. I tried it on my skin, wanting to love it so that I could take the sexy bottle home and put it on display, but it smelled, to my nose, exactly like a dryer sheet. I get a thrill out of a closet-full of clean laundry, but I don't love it enough to want to smell like it all day. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't had that immediate association. The staying power is decent and I detect quite a bit of powder underneath all of that "Cling-Free" aroma, so it's probably worth a try, and as long as you don't pick up the laundry scent, it's probably something quite enjoyable and even to my nose, it is pleasant.

I absolutely adore this perfume. On a citytrip to NY (coming from far away Belgium) I tried the EDT, and it smelled like soap, but trying the EDP I was very surprised of how refined, sweet and sexy it smelled!
You should definitely give this a try if you love sweet smells that accentuate a strong personality!

I was in Sephora browsing scents.. I sniffed every bottle in there and none of them sent my head giddy with attraction like this one. I couldn't figure out what it was until I the quirt of it I had on my coat died down. It smells like in the inside of my mothers make up bag (lipsticks etc) mixed with an alcohol (not sure which one as I don't drink) and like a very hot girl on a night out partying.
When i left Sephora just from the little squirt I had on I got a lot of turned heads from guys so this is a definite YES! It's definitely a hot scent. 7 hours later my coat still smells of it which is great.
after a week of wearing this the dry down smell started to get on my nerves. It smells like some cheap perfume I've smelt somewhere else. Nothng fantastic. I also found out that guys liked it because it was fresh and flowery but they liked my Dior Addict sample because it was sexy as heck (is it the vanilla dry down?).
Well guess which one I bought?

I wouldnt buy the eau du Parfum again.
I love Classique the original. And I made a mistake at the duty free. I had those awful women there pestering me to try things on. I knew I wanted Classique and I figure oh ya Parfum will be better. Grabbed the tin can and jetted off, didn't spray it at all until I arrived at my destination!
Instantly when I smelt it I knew something was different! How disappointed was I! Its still floral, warm and sensual... but the scent is slightly different. It is a new twist on my old favourite.
I still get compliments on it but I don't like the new twist on it I much prefer the Toilette.
Sorry Jean Paul, love your designes. And the bottle is cute as always.

I super love this! Smells very feminine (don't use too much though) and lasts a long time. I prefer the EDP over the EDT. I find the scent of the EDP sexier and it seems to smell softer than the EDT which I find too sharp. My friends, both males and females, love it. Will definitely buy again when I run out.

Believe it or not, this fragrance used to make me sooooo nausciouse when i was younger when my mom would actually douse herself in this!! ofcourse having to pass it by in the department store i decided to give it a whiff since i know ive matured fragrance-wise since then and i sprayed very lightly because this is extremely heady and flowery and not the type of fragrances i wear but i actually liked it alot...exvcept i like it on others alot more because when my friend sprayed it onherself it smelled alot better on her then on me so i guess it has to work with skin chemestry and unfortunatly doesn't quite cut it with mine, and it's too bad because it's such a gorgeous scent with great lasting power...by the way i tried the sheer one for summer but didnt like that one at all.

I have the Classique EDT, and am sadly realizing is not for me. I decided to retry the EDP to see if it smelled better than the EDT. This review is for the woman-shaped bottle in the lacy corset appliqué.I had smelled it before, and it came across as too sweet. This time, I spritzed modestly and was quickly saturated by a sharp smell of soap. And not just any soap: triple-milled luxiurious French soap. It's a nice scent to have in my shower, but not on my arm. Classique EDT has a similar initial sharp note, but it is all I could smell from the EDP. No boozy rum, no flowers, no vannilla like i the EDT version, just soap. Naturally, it gave me a headache, so I washed it off. I smelled a few notes later on (the staying of this frangrance amazing, if you end up liking it), but those were not enough to justify my liking or purchasing this. I'm ready to say goodbye to the Jean Paul Gaultier line. I still think Le Male is one of the best, if not the best, scent I've encountered. Perhaps I'll get to sample Fragile again, but I can't find a tester anywhere. Bye bye, Jean Paul. Two lippies for the bottle design and for the staying power.
