Intensive and sensible, modern, and comfortably warm, masculine and gentle... Le Male is magnetically attractive fragrance which seduces with its uniqueness; it is built on contrasts: traditional and bold, fresh and mild, strong and sensual, in one word: absolutely irresistible for women. Fresh mint is a symbol of strength; the tradition is represented by lavender; vanilla gives warmth and tenderness. The top notes are composed of mint, lavender and bergamot. The heart is composed of cinnamon, cumin, and orange blossom. The base contains vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood and cedarwood. It was created in 1995 by Francis Kurkdjian.

Doing a side by side comparison of the reformulation and vintage releases. Will post it here tonight.

Just bought the vintage bottle of Le Male (before it was reformulated to make it weaker scent and sillage wise). The older version lasts VERY LONG on my skin, maybe one of the longest lasting fragrances I own. I get about 6 hours strong from this scent and after about 12 hours it fades away, which is AMAZING for my very dry skin. I can smell only very subtle differences between the two in both the opening and the drydown. Both have strong lavender and are very aromatic, but the vintage version has a very prominent note of mint... as where I get NO mint in the reformulated version.

Overall --

Vintage Formula -
Scent 8/10
Sillage 9/10
Longevity 9.5/10

New Formula
Scent 7/10
Sillage 6.5/10
Longevity 8.5/10

I bought the vintage for $80.00, which was well worth the price.

Oh wow!
The bottle: As a gay man, I find this offensive. Thank you JPG, for adding to the flames of every homophobic moron who thinks gay men only think about penises and bulges. Because no, in no way, I am looking for a deep relationship with another man, it's just about the bulge.
You just had to do that. Excuse me for a minute, I need to go and feed my unicorn.

The scent: Cheap, overly sweet vanilla scent, mixed with fresh lavender. Evokes high school male locker rooms in the midle of multiple showers turned on, while men with BULGES shower on with lavender mini shower gels you can find abundance of in Russian hotels.

For the people who keep buying this disaster for the different bottles: Get laid, get a life. Maybe touch a real bulge?

If you have to, go for Le Beau Male, it actually has some kind of depth and develops nicely. Not this. Ugh!

This used to be one of those youthful scents I used to love welcoming in the winter time with. Projection was tremendous with just two sprays, longevity fantastic at 12-14 hours in the moderate cold. It was exciting and could still be subtle if you played it conservative on sprays. JPG's management must have figured out people weren't buying enough refills of the juice for their liking, it was lasting too long and cutting into their exaggerated profit estimates. A 4.2 oz could literally last years. You could get away with one to two sprays per wear and get excellent performance from this Kurkdijan modern masterpiece without causing much of a fuss from the general public around you. Now you need 7-8 sprays just to get moderate projection and longevity of around 5-6 hours and even then it's neither as dynamic or as dirty and sweaty as previous editions. This is completely watered down stuff, luckily I have a vintage bottle still, but my recent purchase from mid 2012 always seems to let me down, reminding me of corporate gluttony, greed and its ever expanding and pervasive reach on the global economy. France was one of the last resisters of that brand of corporate greed, but since Sarkozy and the move towards the EU under German capital has greatly UK/Americanized and become one of the greatest advocates of corporate consolidation and merging. A reminder of how temporary and precarious great works of perfumery are and how subject to corporate control the art form can still be.

Unlike poster 'carlosrafael,' I don't have a problem with "the bulge" on the bottle, but rather, I have a huge problem with the uber-sweet cologne that's inside.
He calls it a "classic clubbing scent" but fortunately, I have never smelled it at any club I've ever been to. (it's usually 1 Million, Polo, or Aqua di Gio where I have been)
This cologne was obviously aimed at a mostly gay market, (see the video above) and if I were gay, I would be pissed off.
Most of my gay friends have superb taste, especially concerning great colognes, so why market a cologne for them that's so sweet it makes paint peel off the walls ?
Personally, I think JPG should make an incredible, potent, more manly scent and put it in a bottle that has an even bigger bulge. I would happily pose for the prototype.

Scent - 1
Sillage - 9
Longevity - 10

A Clubbing Classic That Created a New Genre...

I found the smell of Le Male to be very distinctive from the rest when it came out in the 90's and great for the group age I was in (20's). Le Male broke the mold from the 1980's by introducing a sweeter, spicier, brighter and more youthful composition than those fragrances that came out of the 80's (typically woodier, more resinous and mature scents). It was a new smell for the younger man, which opened a new genre of similar fragrances like Paco Rabanne's 1 Million, Burberry London, and up until recently, Spicebomb. In my opinion, fragrances of the 80's and earlier were created without minding age groups...the same cologne targeted mature men and teenagers alike.

For many young clubbers in the 90's this was the go-to scent to buy if their budget did not allow for much more. Most girls loved it, it projected in the clubbing scene, it was alluring, it got complements, and it was popular.

Even though almost 2 decades have passed by since it came out and it has undergone a weakening reformulation, based on my sniffs at Sephora/Macys, I think it is still suitable and is a good fragrance for high schoolers, college students, and for some young professionals. Most people like its bubble gum wrap and vanilla candy vibe. Many girls in this age group find Le Male even sexy. For those over the age of 30, it may be a pass however.

On to the bottle now...

What needs to change is the bottle design. I would come up with a more abstract torso of a man, not so organic and passé like the current version.

I buy a fragrance not only for the juice but the image, quality of ingredients, house reputation, presentation, brand, packaging, parfumeur..all that surrounds the fragrance. Understand, it's nothing to do w/ touching the bulge on the bottle. I just find the bottle déclassé and tawdry,...it gives the feel and appearance, though that may not be the intention, that I'm buying a gimmicky, cheap, juvenile cologne targeted to the softer man. I had the same reaction towards Ed Hardy Love & Luck's bottle. Thought the juice was great, But the bottle made me feel as if I was buying a cheap cologne directed at low rollers playing and trying to get lucky w/ ladies at those third class casinos and bars away from Las Vega's main strip.

This cologne is a very long lasting cologne. I first sprayed it on my chest, then on my face (3-5 sprays) at 4:30 AM and it lasted until 4 PM. I could still smell it on myself! That's what I want, a cologne that lasts!!! This one does. It first starts out as a fresh, clean scent, then as it wears on you throughout the day, it becomes softer into lavender and a powdery scent, but still powerful enough to notice. I recommend this product if what a person wants is a unique smell with longevity...

An excerpt from an interview with Francis Kurkdjian, who, at age 24, created Le Male:

"The idea for Le Male was based on a men’s hair salon in the ‘50s – these were full of the smell of lavender, which is where the perfume’s main lavender accord comes from. It’s reminiscent of a very good-looking man taking care of himself; kind of preppy, but in a Fifties and Sixties kind of way."

It's true - Le Male is retro-cool. The notes are so uplifting and sweet, and while the lavender and cumin is very masculine to me, it smells lovely on women as well as men.

I had a boyfriend in college who wore Le Male. He played piano and sang like the crooners from the days of old. He wore spiffy leather jackets, vintage Italian shoes and always had his favorite accessory nearby - a pack of unfiltered cigarettes. He was charming and Le Male suited him perfectly!

The fragrance is popular because it's brilliantly crafted. I even like the reformulation!

never thought i would like this one. when this came out lots of men wore this. I have come to associate it with bratty young boys with no aparent taste. The popularity of it made me think it was cheap. And now i like it to the point of wearing it myself as a woman. The sweetness still makes me think of younger men but that is o.k. it also makes me able to wear it. The mint in the discription makes me think of the mint in yvresse.

Le male is great for someone younger (under 30) and who likes to go out. Le male has great projection, sillage, and longevity (noticeable for 4 hours, then sits on skin for another 6 hours).

The cologne is starting to give me headaches. At first, I really liked it, but now I'm starting to get worn down by it (maybe too much vanilla, too gourmand). Nevertheless, I still get complements all the time.

3.5/5.0

I managed to get an older bottle of this and the difference is huge compared to todays version. Quite frankly it's amazing- florals, woods, vanilla eucalyptus - it has it all going on and projects/lasts for an eternity. A true shame that it has changed so much.

بر خلاف نظرهاي منفي برخي هموطنان كه مشخصه سليقه بدي دارن،بايد بگم اين يكي از بهترين عطرهايي هست كه داشتم.بيدليل نيست كه اين عطر جزو پرطرفدار ترين و جذاب ترين عطرها تو كشورهاي غربي حساب ميشه.با اين حال قابل دركه كه همه خصوصا خيلي از ايرانيها و خاور ميانه ايها اين نوع بو رو شايد نپسندند.بوي مصنوعي و صنعتي اي داره همراه با خنكي خاص و اسانس نعنا كه بعد از مدت كوتاهي مقدار زيادي وانيل و كمي لاوندر هم بهش اضافه ميشه.خيلي شبيه بوي خمير دندون هست! البته منفي برداشت نكنيد.كلا يه رايحه خيلي تازه و تميز و جذابي داره كه واقعا دوست داشتنيه مخصوصا در هواي سرد.ماندگاريش هم واقعا فوق العادست.فقط تو مصرفش زياده روي نكنيد چون خيلي ميتونه شديد باشه بوش.يكي دو اسپره كاملا كافيه و راحت دو سه روز بوش رو حس خواهيد كرد.

There are Sweet perfumes that the first Try they do not smell good And you do not understand how people love this stuff.
Example Versace eros and A.men
But after a few retries you start to Like them And you returns to Smell them .
In that case of Le Male it's just the opposite for me at first I liked it and after a short use it just sitting Bad and disturbing on my skin
hard to smeel it and uncomfortable for me
5/10
My preference is Versace eros and A.men

This is one of the first designer perfumes I ever bought. Of course, I've known JPG Le Male long before and heard how my friends talked about and praised it being a "staple fragrance", but never really knew what it smelled like.
When I first tried it, I thought it's very sharp, spicy, flower-ey and has a strong talcum/baby powder vibe. But after a while it settles into a sweet vanilla scent, without leaving the spicy/baby powder notes I've mentioned before.
I decided to give it a go because it smelled pretty good (and I've always loved vanilla) and the bottle and tin-can packaging is just so exquisite. But when I tried it for a regular wear, I don't think it quite worked as well as I hoped it would. I live in a tropical country with a high humidity level and I perspire a lot. And I don't think this fragrance works well in these conditions. It's just too sharp and strong for me to wear during the day. I think it would be more suitable for a cooler environment, evening time, maybe to a club or something.
Overall, I still think this is a great fragrance: unique scent and legendary bottle. But I wouldn't suggest this to newbies or people who are just starting out wearing fragrance.

It's amazing what fragrances go through, I assumed my bottle purchased off of eBay was a fake but it turns out it's just horribly light damaged. Got a new one from Sephora and I'm loving the drydown on this. I feel like a God! Lavender, cinnamon, vanilla, and mint! Phenomenal in my opinion.

A Classic for sure! It's not my favorite scent to be honest but I appreciate it a lot. In my opinion the best mainstream fragrance (everybody wears it but I am not tired of it because is a really good creation). As the scent goes, vanilla being freshed up by lavender and mint with a hint of spice in a creamy sandalwood base. In other words Sweet-Freshness. A fragrancehead must have! Get compliments, BUT everybody knows somebody wearing it.

I'm fine with being called out on my laziness with this fragrance, as I don't really find it the most enticing. I do like it, but I'm not going to mosey down and buy a bottle. Both my brother-in-law and I simultaneously agreed that this smells decidedly like a light baby powder. I don't really find that too daring. The dry down is somewhat better than that, but as far as I can tell the main projection gimmick remains that baby powder note. Not at all bad, just not something I want to be known for. Definitely try before you buy.

Le Male is a designer fragrance, its price is reasonable. Please note, I am reviewing the reformulated version.

In the first 10 minutes it is really similar to Cuba Paris Gold, but it is a bit sweeter while Gold is woodier. A very nice scent with vanilla, lavender, cinnamon and mint. It changes a bit from opening to the drydown, but I can detect the same DNA all the way long.

I think it is a very pleasant, masculine and sweet fragrance, I understand why women like it.

I remember that the original formula was a beast in projection and longevity as well. However, someone who did not use the original formula, will not be disappointed with the new one. Its performance is absolutely all right. It lasts for about 7 hours on me with a moderate but quite long projection.

I like it very much. I got a 40ml bottle, which will be used happily. Bottle design? No comment.

For a while I didn't like this stuff. And I could'nt see how I'd get complimented on it from others. However, after more and more wearings I gotta say this juice got me hooked. I still don't get all the MASSIVE hype surrounding it, but I feel where they're coming from and I respect that. It's almost therapeutic, with all the mint and vanilla going around, you get this subtle lavender that's really relaxing.

It's coo

I love this scent - its heavy and sexy and really lasts - my partners clothes still carry this days after (hes dumped them on the floor!) hes worn them. I see quite a few people have said this is too common to enjoy, but where I live I have only noticed it on 2 men in passing in the last 18 months. I fear if a man walked past wearing this I may follow him home!

Another review by me for the legendary Jean Paul Gaultier (JPG) - Le Male. Many have mentioned that it's been reformulated to make the projection less than it's used to be, but I don't know since this is the first time I tried this Le male, with production code year of 2010. So I will write a review objectively based on this bottle I have.

First spray, so sweet cinnamon scent! the exact same vibe you get from 1 million by Paco Rabanne. Very very sweet for the first one hour, then comes the dry down which is so much better then the sweet cloying scent. The mint scent punches after 1 hour which makes the scent very soothing, also balances out the overly sweet cinnamon scent in it. Then the base note I get is the powdery vanilla scent which many here talk about. I also notice that the mint only stays for 3 hours or so then it fades away to the base note(powdery vanilla).

The longevity is top notch, easily 9+ hours. the projection for me is moderate, not as I thought which many had said is extremely strong projection, so I'm kind of disappointed.

Overall, it's truly a worthy purchase. Minty cinnamony vanilla-ish scent. If you like this kind of sweet powdery scent, you'll love it.


Longevity: 10/10 (2 sprays, 9+ hours)
Sillage: 8/10 (moderate, within an arm's length projection)
Scent : 9/10 (The Father of 1 million - Paco Rabanne)

No doubt it is vanilla bomb.

Perfect blend it is. Vanilla is overpowering but U cant hate it. It seems more natural as compare to synthetic vanilla fragrances containing ethylvanillin which is nauseating. But famous designer houses get flavor of vanilla from extraction of vanilla pods which makes fragrance expensive marvelous and again U cant hate this vanilla juice.

Presence of Cinnamon makes it warm sweet fragrance.
Killer combination of all notes.

It is nauseating only when overused. 6 to 8 spray on pulse points are sufficient to fall in love with this juice.

And yes sweetness does not mean that it smells feminine. U cant compare this fragrance with masculine fragrances. Each fragrance has it is own character.
Cinnamon completely reject out feminine feel. Girls may like it but it doesn't mean it is feminine.

Fragrance becomes more rich after dry down. Phenomenal fragrance it is.

Lasting : >12 hrs.
Silage : 2 to 3 meters from skin.
Scent : 9/10.

Must buy and if u like sweet fragrances U can blind buy.

I definitely get the dislike on this fragrance. I, however, really like this one. The opening is a bit harsh and it lasts for a while, unfortunately, but when it dies down it becomes the most soothing, inviting scent of cool vanilla. Not like any other vanilla I've smelled on anything else, really, just simply because it's that of a "cool" vanilla rather than a warm one like most vanilla based fragrances. All-in-all, whether you enjoy it or not, one CANNOT deny the uniqueness of this fragrance.

I acquired a tester 125ml bottle of the classic version and compared it with my sample of the reformulated one. The latter is now a disappointing shadow of his old self.
For those who intend to buy this perfume, avoid the current version as it lacks the essence of what it was unless you prefer wearing light and weak projection and unless you want Le Male DNA but hated it's bold and beautiful potency.
As per the scent itself, the classic in two sprays (more than that can be cloying) is way bolder, fuller, richer, more long lasting, beast projection and well blended. It is the kind of fragrance that highly need control on the trigger to invite and captivate those around you.

Every time I smell this I tend to get nautious. At one time I actually liked it (sorta) but that quickly changed. I don't know why... But now I just can't stand this. Also, everywhere I go it seem like every guy over 25-35 has just bathed in this. I have heard that some women like it, but personally I don't think me having to throw up every 5 minutes is going to be very attractive. I typically love vanilla fragrances, but this just doesn't work with my nose. Also, I really want someone to like me for more than just how I smell.

I love this fragrance . I still have it and wear it in winter and yes I am a woman. To me it is unisex , I have worn "man " fragrances for manny years. This is one of the best vanilla interpretation I ever came across and the lavender first note, wonderful. I don't get any " floral " . Always loved " Le male " , have a bottle of " classique " which does not have the same depth and warms , I rarely wear it .

@Bleetz, Jean Paul Gaultier didn't want to create " the epitome of masculinity". It's a play on masculinity and feminity...Read more about the creation of this fragrance and its context, and maybe you will understand it, and the bootle's irony. All men own their part of feminity, even bodybuilders...
Everyone has the right to hate or love a fragrance, but it's better when we know more about it...

Just saying, love how this is so versatile. I use talcum powder to keep my skin fresh & to prevent itching. This makes a very pleasant aura of that and just hovers around you for a long time. It's succesfully become one of those fragrances like brut, tabac & old spice. Everyone uses them but it never gets old.

Vanilya aşığı bir insan olmama rağmen Le Male ile hiçbir zaman aram iyi olmadı. Hanımların çok beğendiği ve özellikle soğuk kış günlerinde iyi bir performans sergilediği göz önünde bulundurulursa aslında oldukça başarılı bir koku. Ancak hem nane hem vanilya gibi keskin iki tür kokuyu bir arada algılamak benim açımdan pek cazip değil. Ayrıca vanilyası çok kremsi ve sentetik olunca hepten baygın bir hale geliyor! Sevmiyorum demeyeyim ama buna gelene kadar onlarca alternatifim mevcut. Daha kakaolu bir vanilya kokusu hayaliniz varsa, bu o parfüm değil!

Eğer traş losyonu ve deodorant tamamlayıcısı istiyorsanız piyasada büyük marketlerde Equal ismi ile satılan gri ambalajlı ürünlerden faydalanabilirsiniz. Çünkü Equal biraz Le Male imitasyonu havasında.

Very masculine scent made for the *night* or *very cold* days. It is warm and comfortable as a good cup of tea on a cold day. :) The 'World Champion' ('Brand New') is a great copy of it. The projection is huge: three meters or more for at least an hour.

Tapi untuk sillage agak parah Le Male di kulit saya hampir gak kecium sama orang dekat kita.

A good powdery vanilla scent. I only wear this on my skin because I want my fiancé to always think about my body if she ever were to smell it on someone else. teehee tread carefully with this one bc everyone has it. a good beginners scent. This is also a warm powdery if that makes any sense. Projects fair and I found myself reapplying after 5-6 hours or so but only on my wrists.

i remember the hype back then when i was very young when this appeared, i remember that men always loved it, i remember how the ad posters shows pretty muscled men all around that even made me wonder how does it smell like! then i realized that it smells quite soft like water! vanishes like water and i barely can smell a thing although my nose is quite sensitive regarding notes. but this perfume is quite common, and kind of unique in common perfumes. surely not for me.
LOL, i just realized that that vid ad was gay, where i live JPG made a specific ad that shows the same vid as straight rather than Gay :D

Le Male is, ironically, not very masculine. It's extremely sweet, almost like a candy store. If that doesn't bother you, it's actually a lovely fragrance. The vanilla becomes a bit overwhelming after a while, though.

Love the hilariously gay bottle!

From the first spray to the last hint of it on your skin, you will love this fragrance. My god i was lost for words when i first sprayed this on my skin.

I have flip flopped on this frag so much. Hated it, loved it, hated it, loved it,hated it. Well...Aits back in my collection again. I can't seem to stay away even though I know I should. There's just something about this that I find alluring. It's vanilla musky powdery and just smells inviting. I walked in from today after purchasing and had two squirts on my neck..the wife hugged me and told me I smelled really good. And she's not a cologne fan. It's not for everybody but it's working for me.

Esse perfume me divide bastante em opinião, comecei odiando ele, depois achei ele aceitável, quando resolvi experimentar o vintage me apaixonei e comprei um exemplar pra mim. Desempenho maravilhoso e uma baunilha excepcional. Sinto tbm uma flor de laranjeira e uma lavanda bem forte que deixa a fragrância com tom de limpeza maravilhoso.

A Classic! Vanilla, tonka bean, lavender, mint and some other stuff in the background. This fragrance lasts forever and projects like a beast on my skin.

If you ask my opinion, I really LIKE this fragrance...really nice, but not quite my style nor one of my favorites. However, the ladies LOVE this stuff...they go, nuts, nuts, nuts over it...so I wear it during the cooler months and, honest, I love it too because of all the compliments I receive.

Surprisingly not that many men are wearing this fragrance nowadays in my world. Go figure! If you like vanilla and tonka bean, then you'll probably love this one. If not, then don't waste your time with Le Male.

I know everybody on here say its been reformulated but it still seems the same to me still has good longevity and projection and still super sweet I used to like this scent a lot when I was younger but now that I'm 30+ I can't get into it like that anymore its too sweet I still got a bottle that's almost full I'll only spray 1 or 2 sprays on but only when its really cold outside cause its still a heavy sweet scent I've been meaning to get the summer version cause its supposed to be lighter seems exactly like what I need but any ways I can't knock it cause its a classic fragrance 6/10 but its just too sweet for me now I'm kind of getting away from sweet scents I prefer aquatics woody aromatic light scents now basically spring summer fragrances I have a few fall winter scents that I like but their light

It's definitely a love for me. I just wish it weren't so popular, and didn't project as much as it does (that'd make it more versatile). One spray is usually enough for me, and still, I'm concerned about it being overpowering to others.
I literally fell in love with this when I bought a dupe of it... and I was totally unaware that it was a dupe of it. LOL! I had never smelled the original, so my opinion of it was totally unbiased. It was such a captivating scent: fresh and warm at once, spicy, something I could smell for hours and not get tired of. I became curious about my dupe's similarity to Le Male, so I went to sample it and eventually bought a bottle.

I remember smelling this the first time. I was studying abroad in Bonn, Germany. I had to have it. About a year later, it became so popular in the US. This used to be my go-to fragrance back in my 20's. I still smell it on people and love it. Still have a bottle that's who knows how old, yet I rarely wear it anymore. Occasionally, I'll spray it on before bed as my mind wanders down memory lane. Although it's still worn and still überpopular, I have to hold this one dear to my heart.

I liked always very much this scent, but I was always in a search for a new scent, just because this product is too popular and wide spread... I tried Sexy man, VIP, One Million, XS Black, La Nuit.. ( oh yeahh... also popular and wide spread scents :-D ) Recently tried the " Night series " Night Dive, Azzaro Night, Obsession night etc... However I gave up... this scent became my night time signature scent... This scent is full with fantasy, creativity and mystery... a masterpiece with great longevity.

The only possible competitor is Kenzo Night

2009 vintage, loved it.
2013/2014 vintage, disappointing. Scent is noticeably different, more chemical tang, vanilla lacking punch, more fruity note with none of the lovely, spicy warmth. Doesn't last as long, nor revive when warmed.

...

I was given a bottle as a gift around 2009, and was initially hesitant to use it being so strong and vanilla/girly scented. The compliments and interest I received when wearing it soon put to rest any reservations I had, and I have worn it near daily since.

The smell (as others have noted) is initially quite chemical, but soon dries to a lovely warm vanilla/wood/mint, which easily lasts a full 12+ hours on my chest/neck (single spray only). Often I will find it revived and glowing away when I warm up during exercise the next day.

Unfortunately my old bottle has run out, and the new bottle I purchased (through a reputable store) to replace it has been a disappointment. As noted above, the scent is quite different, the projection reduced (2-3 sprays not noticed by most people), and wears off quite quickly with no noticeable revival when warm.

I have tried a number of tester bottles at various stores since purchase, and all seem to exhibit the same weak character.
Are these differences between batches, or have they changed the recipe?

Where can I find the old scent?

I just got this 2 days ago (19th June 2014) and I can say that it still has a very good performance. Smells like smooth, minty vanilla talcum powder. I think anyone can wear this since well....everyone wears talcum powder. It's just a nice scent that everyone can wear. Might smell like mouthwash at first but after about 5 minutes you'll notice the vanilla and it'll just smell like very cooling vanilla talcum powder. I don't think this is synthetic at all though. I sprayed once on my chest and once on my neck at 9pm at night. It was still clearly there by 5am and was still projecting that I could smell it without trouble. Easily lasts 10+ hours. It projects at about an arm's length after 5 hours. It can project up to 5 meters before 5 hours though. Might not seem to project at all for some people because the type of scent Le Male has is pretty 'transparent' and people won't really notice it unless they're idle so that they'll actually notice that there's a scent going about in the air. I think this can easily overwhelm your sense of smell even though it's transparent because I tried to spray it on my suit and I couldn't smell it at all. But then I tried hanging it on my chair and backed away to a good 4 to 5 meters and I could smell it easily. It's still strong, so pre-reformulation's performance is probably not much different than this one. I'd guess that the scent has become more transparent than before and that the longevity might have been reduced, even though it's still currently beast mode, just doesn't seem so unless you really pay attention to it. 3 sprays maximum!! Any more and it'll smell weird :) It's transparent but yes, it does indeed project. Lasts days on clothes, but spray it on your skin because it won't really project much if you spray it on clothes.

Update (22 June 2014):
It is now hour 12 since I've sprayed this on myself. I thought nothing of it until now, because it was gone. I turned on my stove to heat my kettle. Was making some coffee. My body heated up a little and to my surprise, actually revived Le Male. Simply loving this baby :)

Cheers.

I'm not a man neither macho, but I wear pridefully Le male that is a cool aromatic unisex scent. When I use I feel more self-confident and sexy. I like it for the huge sillage (older version) and lasting, the smell is also great, fresh and aggressive at first and calms down to lavender and vanilla powder that smells like a shampoo. The dry down (on my skin) I feel also known smell from the past like Cerruti 1997 and Coty Ex'clamation, I think cause of the vanilla:) When I sweat I feel this little bit dirty:)

its all about how your own skin work with every fragrance, for me its workin well and delivering about 16 hours every time, the smell is really good . it happens that i have a limited edition and its fantastic.
I have really good experience with this fragrance , I mean it doesnt take time for people to realize that there is some really good smell over the place, and I also got girls making excuses to talk to me and smell me.
i dont say its the best ever but I GIVE it an 8.5/10 for a total.

I get that some find this a bit 'plastic' like. If i use the shower gel or aftershave balm, i get this plastic idea, but when I use the cologne, it does not give any of that on my skin. It is fresh and projects some lavender, and after a while it dries down in a not-too-sweet vanilla. I really like it.

@ian85 said it all. There's no such thing as Gender Appropriate Fragrance. We make the separation in our mind cause we are "taught", but it doesn't mean is right. I know a lot of girls who wear 'male' cologne and a lot of guys who wear fragrances design to women, and that never changed a bit in their sexuality.

This is a market thing, design to sell. We put this in our heads cause designers tend to use the same basic notes to determinate a 'gender', but that's kinda stupid.

Personally, i've never seen a bottle of perfume making out with a same-sex bottle of perfume, so i don't know how a fragrance can be gay.

I didn't know that there were gay fragrances... You like a fragrance or you don't like it... That's all. Friends of mine are heterosexual and wear Le Mâle without any problem. I'm gay and I wear Yatagan, quorum, Le mâle, Equipage, l'eau de gloire, habanita, and many others... Gender distinction is a non sense in my opinion.

Put me on the list of people who wear cologne as much for their own satisfaction as for that of others. And I really like this fragrance. Yes, it is sweet, so if that's not your thing, then proceed accordingly. Either way, for what this fragrance appears to be going for, I can't imagine it smelling better than it does.

For the uninitiated, johnnyjazz' Jan 2 2014 review offers a great description--except for the longevity--which strikes me as pretty good, actually. I can't comment on the original formulation, but the lasting power of the reformulation is among the best I've encountered.

One more thing. Reviewers' remarks about the unpleasantness of the opening are spot on. But I found that to be only if I put my nose right up on my skin--and it goes away in a half hour or so. Seems like many colognes with great sillage and longevity include at least some unpleasantness in the opening (I'm reminded of YSL L'Homme). Maybe JPG's decision to tone it down a bit made some sense.

It took me forever to appreciate Le Male. This is a very potent fragrance. The smell has been described very well below, but this is truly all mint, lavender, and VANILLA. I can only wear Le Male with 1 or 2 sprays because I've endured some of the worst headaches while trying to figure out the best way for this to be worn. Thankfully, all you need is 1 to 2 sprays for this baby to project for at least 8 hours. My wife loves this smell, and that definitely is a plus. I believe this really shines in cooler weather.

Sorry guys, but this is disgusting. I bought this for my son when he turned 16 and he refused to wear it. Said it smelled like a Betty Crocker factory. Tossed it to my husband. He wore it all of about three times. All of us agreed it was not a very manly scent. It sat on the bathroom counter for about six months before we just tossed it in the trash. As a woman, I find nothing sexy about this scent and I frequently wear men's perfumes. When I MYSELF smell like burning rubber, vetiver, ink and incense..... I certainly do not want my man to smell like an iced yellow cake.

Le Male is a centerpiece in my collection, as of about 4 months ago.
This rich, powdery floral quickly weaseled its way into my top ten after smelling it at a Bergners, and falling in love ever since.
This fragrance opens up with a rich floral, and quickly dries down to a lavendar / bergamot that stays on the skin FOREVER. I will usually spray this 2-3 times in the morning, and it will stay with me until I get off of work 8-10 hrs later.
This is also quite a compliment getter, as I have received quite a few happy comments from females at work and school. They say it smells 'fresh and clean'.
It is in my top 5, if not top 3. Try, buy or pass- definitely a BUY.

Projection- 9/10 (It's a BEAST)

Versatility- 9/10

Still a lovely fragrance even after reformulation.
Of course if you over spray (more than 3), it will turn into a sticky vanilla in its dry down.
Always a compliment getter when put on the right occasion.

More a spring/autumn night scent for me.
Great longevity and projection throughout the whole day (and I have very dry skin).

Try one spray on the neck (mid-range arm), one spray on chest (with clothes on), one spray above your head so that can hit gently head and shoulders.

Still worth having it in your collection, trust me.
If you are new to it, don't blind buy it if you are not too much into powdery vanillas types.

On the old formulation. Love the minty lavender opening. Unfortunately that blissful start lasts 5-10 miutes and then Le Male turns to dirty dusty vanilla for the next 12-18 hours on my skin.

Fenomenal longevity at 12+ hours. I could smell this on a shirt 2 months after wearing it - how do they do this!?

Fenomenal sillage - 3+ sprays chokes people out. Leaves a trail and since this is such a recognizable fragrance you always know who has been bathing in it. Do not overspray this - it will be too much for people. I've been trying to finish a bottle for a few years now, and still have lots left.

On longevity and sillage - definitely have an older bottle. New reviews seem to agree that the update juice is much less potent.

Not a compliment getter on me, quite the opposite - overheard comments that some lady is wearing too much perfume. Not exacly the type of vibe a man wants to project.

My girfriend wears it a lot more than I do. She likes the vanilla and I like it on her a lot better than I do on me. That said, the dirty vanilla does give this one some masciline vibe, until Dior Homme which doesn't have a single manly facet to it.

mY Second review on this ->

This scent feels romantic , it's a romantic scent not a sexual scent.
It doesnot make me feel horny , but makes me romantic (a bit too much romantic).
It gives me/you a feeling that you are sitting in a garden/park in fall/winter in evening with beautiful trees around. And you are just kissing your lover on lips , holding hands and feeling the care this scent exhibits through its smell. When you are kissing your lover and you are closing eyes , and are swimming in the vibes of this vanilla smell.
If you are a man , you will feel , yes i will love you my darling forever , if you are a woman , you will feel , yes , i love this man , this smell is so romantic.

Its not about sex , its about love.

P.S i am yet to feel that garden love thing :) but i will do this someday.

Le Male is a classic manly fragrance. I bought it for the first time when it was introduced back in the 90's. It was very popular then and it is still popular today. The opening is vanilla, lavender and mint. In the dry down I get vanilla with a hint of lavender. I must say Le Male is unique and it will be on top for a long time.

Does anyone feel like this doesn't smell much like vanilla in the drydown? I get tons of super sweet lavender, orange blossom, and cumin. I absolutely love lavender, so I'm not complaining. This is one of my favourite fragrances. However, I wish it projected less, because it can be rather pungent.

Eventually every man comes down to this one. I think maybe I was the last stand... I had Cuba and Javari (both very good alternatives) but not Le male not when every other male and their dogs wear it. But finally few days ago I bought my 125ML bottle for a very reasonable price.
Verdict: The original still is and always will be “the original”! I never had the vintage so yes maybe it was more powerful, but even the reformulation (eventually all classics will be reformulated, so what to do, lucky some of us we have various vintage bottles, but then again some times the new one is better e.g. Gentleman) is better than the copycats in a sweeter fresher woodier way and I also think is still more powerful.
Final thought: Now that not every man where’s it anymore I enjoy it much more because I can also “stand out” in a new-classic way.
Plus I have to admit. This fragrance is an all-trade-jack (formal/office, sexy/masculine, winter or summer, day or night, noticeable but not offensive) and a very good signature fragrance if you like, when at the same time can be your to-go everyday fragrance.

As I work in a perfume shop in the purchasing department, we always order perfumes from the company when we have a shortage in our stock!

We recently received "Le Male" the original one along with "Le beau male".

Anyway, I sampled this perfume last year, although I liked it, it didn't convince me and found it too feminine. But what stroke me the most was it's longevity and power! It lasted on my skin for nearly 2 days and the scent was radiating like crazy!

But, when I sampled this yesterday, I immediately felt something was wrong. The strong harsh opening of "Le Male" is now tamed, sweet and nothing spectacular. The dry down is the most disappointing! It turned weak and almost became skin scent which lasted a good 7 to 9 hours... But still, nothing compared to last year's bottle.

I can clearly say that this perfume has been reformulated, watered down and somewhat ruined! Shame!!

Seams like everything smells like old spice and axe these days. This is different. In the perfume shop, they describe it as an older male sent. I strongly disagree. I'm almost 17 and it compliments me quite well. And is amazingly different. The only issue I have is the price. I understand that its a popular scent but it is older. $65.00 to $100.00 is pretty unreasonable. Definitely worth buying again when I run out. Try to use sparingly because it gets heavy in spice and be almost headache inducing so take it easy on the trigger.

This is said to be a lady killer but on me ive gotten mixed results. Some loved,some liked it and some hated it. All those that loved it were women that were 30 and above so maybe since im in my mid 20s that may be why i cant completely pull this off.

This scent is not my favorite scent but every now and then in the colder months I do enjoy this. To me its very sweet and I really pick up the mint in this, mixed with vanilla and light florals. Its pleasant but not my favorite.

This stuff is BEAST as far as projection and on my skin its the strongest frag I own. Which is why I usually only do 1 spray.

Even with 1 spray that lasts me 12-16 hours

I wish I liked this scent more because the performance on this is top notch

Id rate this a 6.5 out of 10

This is hands down, the best cologne I have ever encountered in my life. I sprayed it on my boyfriend at sephora last night and could not stop smelling him. I'm buying this for him ASAP!! He's been wearing Drakkar for years now and doesn't much like the idea of change--but I know he really liked Le Male too and just wouldn't admit it. I can't even describe the scent of this-but if I had to try, i would say it's a vanilla spicy leathery concoction. I get the mint and cinnamon mixed together for sure with blasts of vanilla which give off that green "spicy." I was just so attracted to my boyfriend in this, even more so than usual which means I was absolutely smitten in his presence. Put Le male on an already gorgeous man, and see how long it takes until you melt. I'm going to buy this, for him and myself--I will spray this liberally on my pillows and even wear it myself. Didn't try it on my skin, but I could honestly see myself wearing this. It's that good. It's not feminine. It's just extremely sexy and alluring. Men out there... Try it!!
HLe Male is unique IMO, just because I've never known anyone that wears it. Everyone's wearing D&G Light Blue and curve around here..(yes, curve-ugh.) this is a perfect choice for any man that loves vanilla and wants to be noticed.. Which is the whole point of perfumery, right? I wouldn't worry about being unoriginal for wearing this.. Like I said, unless you're in a big city, men don't wear this as much as you think. I would remember such a lovely cologne as this if I had smelled it on someone in the past.i am also very curious to smell the original formulation of Le Male. I can't imagine anything being better than the one I smelled at sephora... But if it has more vanilla in it, I must try it! I'm definitely going to try to fid an original bottle on eBay. So glad I finally got to try this though.. In in love<3 and can I just say how shocked I am to see so many negative reviews. Is it really the scent itself making people make such reviews? Or is it just because this cologne has a "reputation," or people find it pretentious because of its popularity and supposed ability to attract the ladies. I wonder. Because the fragrance itself is to die for, and maybe that's just me.. But it at least deserves some respect as it's a classic. Who knows and who cares, really. Pretentious or not, I'll continue recommending Le Male!

اغازی خیلی قوی با وانیل و لاوندار که اولش ممکنه سردرد بیاره ولی بعد ارام تر میشه
و همچنین نعنا اضافه میشه و عطر رو کمی سبز میکنه

I own a bottle of this, plus two clones that smell like the original formulation. I actually prefer wearing the clones, as the vanilla accord they contain is stronger. I'm attracted to this fresh (mint)/warm (vanilla) contrast. I enjoy it so much, that I've realised I usually can't go more than three days without spraying some of it on. LOL!

I bought "le male" last week, checked the batch code and the production date is november 2013. It's clearly a reformulation, the scent is toned down, the mint stills there, the cinnamon, the lavender but i usually remember the great vanilla drydown of "le male", which now it's seems to be undetectable. Lavender and mint dominate the reformulated one. I think the sillage is a little bit weak compared with the old formulation, and longevity is more or less the same,very close to skin after 11-12 hours.

Overall: 7/10 (reformulated); 8/10 (vintage version)

i have heard of le male since my high school years but never had the chance to purchase one... and although i have been into perfume since my younger years, i only can afford the cheaper versions like Jovan, Aspen and the likes...

So, anyway fast forward today, i saw a discounted bottle and decided to blind buy it... i should say it smells good in a candy-ish way... a little spritz on my fingers to test on the road made me realize later that i am getting a hint of overbaked biscuit like scent... some burnt plastic(sort of like those synthetic rugby paste that can be addictive)...some vanilla... smells good but not the type that's inviting you to snuggle...

for a casual playful scent it is not as versatile.. it needs a certain place to be worn at... maybe bars (the more noisy ones and not the classy prim and proper bars).. it can't even be sporty... i can't say i love it to bits but i think it's great for its longevity and projection and that matters to me... if you're kinda' new to scents this will excite you until you get the chance to test niche scents which are more refined

Already everything has been said about this truly ground-breaking fragrance here on fragrantica. Le Male freed the entire industry from the classical constraints on it and led the way to an explosion of creative marketing and packaging possibilities. It would have meant nothing if the juice inside wasn't an abrasive punch in the face, symbolizing Jean Paul Gaultier's humble origins and rags to riches story in the fashion industry through unconventional means (He was France's first working-class designer to have success). The original juice had a daring and abrasive synthetic and dirty shock factor to it. The new reformulation is a tame and watered-down version that is a mere approximation of itself. It used to be a really nice three-tiered evolution that moved from citric minty spicy lavender to warming cinnamon over the top of the dirty cardamom, mint and lavender to a nice vanilla dry-down. Longevity and projection used to be excellent, now they are very mediocre and this one has no sting or bite. Read JohnnyJazz's review below for a better comparison. I'm hear just to write a eulogy to the vintage formula. RIP, you will be mourned by many of us here.

What a disappointment...I bought this about a month ago. I had finally finished the big bottle I bought mmmm...I don't even remember when, but obviously things have changed quite a bit. I'm glad I didn't get the big bottle again! I kept the old bottle so I was able get a tiny spray out of it for a comparison since I thought I had received a fake!!! Smelled different and performed like a good EDC at best. I drove to a Macy's the next day to compare even though everything looked legit! Unfortunately in this case it was legit.

The longevity sucks now it sits so close to the skin after a few hours. I remember this juice having insane longevity as well as very good sillage. I could see this being a cheap alternative to Armani Code Ultimate. Compared to the old bottle It was a real let down. I tried reapplying a couple times during the day a it became very cloying. I'd rather see one hundred flankers than see another reformulation of a classic like this one.

I have to admit that I'm eating differently and I've changed my usual fitness routine to include cardio twice a day. Or, maybe I'm getting getting sick and will soon experience some major cold symptoms. Yeah, that's it!

I was undecided on what fragrance to wear and picked up Le Male for a quick whiff. I immediately put it down! It was a synthetic olfactory disaster! What happened? There is only a thimble amount of it left, but I just couldn't. Has my taste and growing knowledge of fragrances have me turning my nose up? I don't smell anyone wearing it at work or in the places that I socialize. However, I pretty much know that this bottle will not be replaced anytime soon and its imitation will go in the trash before it touches my skin or clothing.

Farewell LeMale! I'm an adult now and no-longer wish to play with childish things.

UGH! This sat unused for about six months before we deep sixed it to the trash can. It was recommended to me for my 17 year old son. He hated it, said he smelled like he had been slathered with cookies and icing. I figured he just might not be ready for colognes, so I gave it to my 49 year old husband. He wore it about five times, before saying he felt silly, like he was trying to re-live his teen years. Sooo..... we have both very far apart age groups, both wo agree this is unmanly and don't want to get caught smelling like it. ME? Well, even as a vanilla lover, I find this scent sickening.

MY THOUGHTS ::: Smells amazing BUTTTTT...This is deff a "USE WITH CAUTION" fragrance!

So I tend to like fragrances that have only average longevity and sillage because I tend to actually enjoy I guess you could say..."soaking myself in fragrances," to improve the longevity and make them project because the fragrances with only average sillage & longevity tend to NOT OFFEND when you overspray them.

So this fragrance is one that DEFINITELY does NOT fit those same guidelines as my typical fragrances.

This fragrance should only be sprayed 4-5 times because it ends up NOT smelling good if you spray it more.

The vanilla smells great, but ONLY when used sparingly! If you overspray, the vanilla EASY becomes cloying. And when I say cloying......I mean CLOYING! It will actually end up repelling people instead of intriguing them.

Longevity - 10/10 - About 8 hours on me with no need for reapplication.

Projection - 9/10 - Definitely projects several feet away.

Scent itself - 8/10 - Smells great, but again, must be used carefully and can deff be too sweet for some noses, so it isn't exactly versatile.

Overall rating : 9/10

A definite must-have...or at least...a must-try!

Le Male can be either masculine or sweet with a feministic touch, it all depends on how you interpret the scent. Because vanilla and musk are dominant notes in this fragrance, I can see why some men might think that this lacks masculinity.

It is sweet yet refreshing at the same time. Some have noted an almost soapy and powdery quality, which is certainly there, however I quite like it.

I've heard this is considered sillage monster and lasts for at least 8 hours .. Well, I bought it and didn't find those qualities. It smells good, but it's actually disappointed because it has weak sillage & longevity. Maybe it has been reformulated :/ . So never blind buy it.

You know, sometimes I'll read a music review and think, "hey, that sounds like something I would like", and then I listen to it, and it doesn't really grab my interest in any way at all. I'll listen to it a few more times, hear it on the radio (because there is a lot of hype around it), but it still just does nothing for me. I'm sure that there is genuine appeal for others - just not for me. That is how I feel about Le Male. There is clearly a reason it has been so popular...but that reason has eluded me.

Le Male to me smells exactly like a typical vanilla candle and generally women love the smell of vanilla candles. However, I think that most guys blind buy and wear Le Male because of the insanely positive reviews this scent has received over the internet. They have been brainwashed with the idea that wearing Le Male in a nightclub will help them pick up any girl they want, or it will dramatically increase their sex appeal. Relax guys! It is not as appealing as everybody thinks.
I have received a number of compliments in the past but to me it doesn't mean anything because I don't personally enjoy the smell, and I don't feel comfortable leaving a cloud of vanilla anywhere I go.

My review may seem a bit melodramatic, but I'm compelled to speak my mind. I think Le Male is literally the best thing I have ever smelled. It's the fragrance that sparked my whole interest in designer fragrances. To me there's something about it that's almost enigmatic. It takes me to a completely different place and time, it paints a picture in my head and tells me a story. To me, it's the fragrance that proves that fragrances are more than just tools to win the attention of the opposite sex; they can be works of art that evoke just as many thoughts, emotions, and memories as any painting, poem, or piece of music. In the end, it's not about the reputation, or the sillage, or the name of the designer. It's about how the fragrance makes you feel. I think Le Male is one that can make people fall in love, that can hold the memories of an entire life.

To me it smells like a pretty feminine, lavender and mint based shaving soap drenched in vanilla oil. That's pretty much all i get out of it unfortunately. Very one-dimensional to my nose and hardly masculine at all.

Great performance when It comes to longevity and projection. Also a very smooth feel to the overall fragrance, nothing stinging the nose.

I actuall think it's a great fragrance for women who want a fresher and less sweet version of JPG's Classique.
Ultimately nothing i would wear because of a decisive lack in masculine notes and too much sweetness.

Well crafted but not for me

Le Male is not a refined fragrance. It's not an organic one either. It's too popular for those posing to be elitist and too prominent to be outright dismissed by critics all together. Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male was completely consistent with his fashion line; shocking, attention-grabbing, unrefined but ultimately incredibly pleasurable, enjoyable and fun. JPG dared to think outside the standard note pyramid when his team hired Francis Kurkdijan to take the stale, old-fashioned basic oriental fougere formula and revitalize it with a total slap to the face. Spices? Sure, how about some incredibly sweaty cardamom slammed into harsh synthetic lavender, cinnamon and minty tooth paste and topped off with a pinch of artemisia and caraway seed for good measure? And after 30-45 minutes a blast of synthetically sweet vanilla meshed with creamy tonka that is like a coat of icing dirtied up just enough by the cardamom to be a wonderful casual wear for the fall, winter and early spring.
Starting with the incredibly campy packaging and ode to the sailor in uniform; Le Male is one of the few cases where the actual juice is consistent with the pretensions of the packaging. This is in your face stuff. Correction.
IT WAS... IN YOUR FACE STUFF.
Until the reformulation that several rather astute reviewers like anna.dkr5 have mentioned. This is absolutely true. The dirty, sweaty cardamom is gone completely. It's been thoroughly replaced by the mint, which absolutely dominates the fragrance now on top and takes away much of the more aggressive elements of the lavender, cardamom and cinnamon pressing for space and pushing it more into a cliff-hanging balance that never seemed for certain. The element of mystery and charisma are gone, the dirtiness the cardamom created added an element of roughness that no longer resonates.
The caraway is far more prominent, replacing the thick layer of cinnamon and the onset of creamy tonka/vanilla with a herbal, minty blandness where the vanilla is more deeply embedded into the overall construct and takes a far less dominant role during the dry-down.
This is much, much, much weaker juice. It's been thinned out dramatically. Gone is the solid projection and longevity that came with just one spray on the arm and one on the chest. Gone are any thoughts of a 12-16 hour wear that lasted well through work and the locale afterwards and 5 days residue on your shirt to remind you of last Friday night.
In regards to the vintage release, it should suffice to say that it has likely been abandoned for good; or at least until loud, brash and synthetic colognes are once again in fashion and give JPG reason to return to a closer approximation of the original. Sadly this is no longer as complex nor as enjoyable or reliable as before. It is now in dangerously weak company with stable mate Le Male Terrible and some of the uninspiring Summer Special Edition releases that were thrown together with little attention beyond the kitsch art on the bottle for collectors to accumulate and gather dust.
Is it still essential? 100%. If only because even as a fraction of its former self, it's still a more enjoyable wear than Versace's Dreamer, Givenchy's Play Intense and Joop's harshly synthetic Joop! Homme. But that gap has closed dramatically.
Alternatives? A less balanced but spicier version of Le Male exists under a different designer. Carolina Herrera's 212 Sexy Men showcases the dirty cardamom to a greater extent than the original; but at the expense of the cinnamon, lavender and mint that adds an element of complexity 212 Sexy Men lacks. The dominance of the vanilla in 212 Sexy Men will give wearers with limited familiarly with vintage Le Male releases a good idea of how essential the vanilla's prominence was to its character. The Original 9.5/ Reformulation 6.5

Smells like cake, and boy do fat girls love cake! Seriously though, this stuff isn't bad but it's ultra sweet. Would I wear this, probably not, but it doesn't go into the dislike category. The bottle design is really cool though.

A cologne that has been over-analyzed to death and has been reformulated dramatically in the past few years. Originally JPG's Le Male was an incredibly flashy, aggressive and powerful beast that exuded dirty cardamom sweat and masculinity blended with a unique synthetic vanilla, cinnamon and lavender combination that was incredibly original and packaged so campy and novel that it became a landmark in the industry that propelled it to legendary status.
Is it over-worn? Absolutely. Is it highly synthetic? Sure. Is it more flash than substance? No. Francis Kurkdijan did a masterful job of combining elements of herbs, spices, citrus and sweet vanilla and minty floral into something that simply forced the industry to reevaluate the very essence of packaging and the conception of the oriental fougere.
Not everyone will like this, it is high on vanilla, cinnamon and dirty cardamom and lavender. But that doesn't mean they can't still appreciate it as a wonderfully original creation that goes on extremely well in small doses. 2-3 sprays will do well enough, any more will only offend and overpower on most skin.
The reformulations are extremely toned down versions of the original, with projection dramatically reduced after the first two hours of wear and longevity cut in half from 12-14 hours to 4-6. Also on reformulations the vanilla starts to dominate much earlier than before and the dirty cardamom and lavender are dialed back to make room for the vanilla and cinnamon.
Is this still a classic? Yes. Is it worth having? Absolutely. It's essential in every man's wardrobe as at least an option for the late fall, winter and early spring. Yes, the opening is harsh and synthetic, but JPG's Le Male rewards you within 15-20 minutes with a beautiful middle and dry-down that warms the skin and never really grows tiresome. Don't believe the cheapskates, Cubano Gold, Cuba Gold, Perry Ellis 360 White, etc.. lack any of the complexity or layering of this much derided but highly enjoyable and unique fragrance. 9.5/10

@Adler: good review. I'm glad to hear that you get so much vanilla from this. I wish I did. Perhaps I have a different batch. I own the reformulated version myself, and all I can smell is a faint vanilla sweetness overpowered by lavender and mint. Oh, and caraway. Way too prominent for me.

Before writing, I should make it clear that I likely own the reformulated version, since vintages are so rare and expensive these days. But, considering that reformulated bottles make up the vast majority of what's on the market, whilst near-every review of every fragrance on this site is about past versions, it's worth knowing what you're actually getting.

Vanilla, vanilla, vanilla! Not in a horribly unpleasant way, but it's a bit too sweet for me. Not everybody is as into Caron Yatagan or Alfred Sung as I am, so if you like a sweet cologne, this is good. I for one find it cloying.

If you can get past the Duncan Hines icing smell hitting you in the face, you notice the vanilla accompanied by tonka, amber, and cinnamon. Standing out from all that is a strong mint smell; I think this cologne might be what Versace Eros is going for. It's hard to pick out most of the more floral or herbal notes initially, but the lavender emerges during the dry down. The sandalwood and perhaps a touch of patchouli also emerge, but are not dominant.

If there was ever cedar or artemisia, it died in the reformulation. This is a sweet, bakery-esque fragrance. Overusing this cologne will make you smell like a cupcake.

People describe this as warm, but I'm not sure that's the right word. It smells like a store-bought cake. It could be nice on a cold winter's day, but once you go inside the heat will make it a wrecking ball of headaches.

-scent 5/10
-longevity 5/10
-sillage 7/10

Overall, a fairly decent cologne, but not my type. Too sweet and synthetic. Don't wear it if you're beyond your early twenties. Masculine, mature, and versatile are words I'd use to describe the opposite of this. It might make a better woman's fragrance with the current version.

And have I mentioned the vanilla?

This was the second perfume I owned. I remember LOVING it in high school. Just recently on a trip back to the US I stopped in Sephora and for old times sake sprayed it on a tester strip and asked my boyfriend what he thought. I was a little disappointed at how quickly and definitively he shook his head back and forth.
Whether it has lost some of its former splendor with reformulation or not this fragrance still has punch it's still Le Male and I'm pretty sure I'm still in love with it.

i bought it blindly. it's misterious, liked it. pretty strong sillage and more than 8 hours of longevity on my skin. i wonder if this is the mellowed version then how potent would be the original juice. it's also very different from the recent spate of "sweet n sexy" perfumes. A worth try for those who prefer old school masculine frags.

Reformulation has killed this fragrance. It has the silage power of a mouses f*rt and lasts about 4 hours max. I remember wearing this in 2006 and it was a gorgeous powdery, minty vanilla scent. Now its just a synthetic, diluted mess. Such a shame.

As far as reformulation goes, not worth purchasing at all. This is not worn much anymore and I can see why. I see many complaints all over the internet of disappointed consumers.

If anyone has a vintage bottle up for sale please do message me as I would love to get my hands on the vintage, that was beautiful stuff.

Reformulated -

scent: 6/10
Longevity: 5/10
Sillage 4/10

I just put this on, I loved the top notes (especially the lavender, vanilla, and mint) , but I'm not loving the sandalwood or amber in the dry down. Too warm for me, and a little too synthetic on the skin.

I used to smell a lot of vanilla in this one (I'm talking about the reformulation). Now, I mostly smell lavender, mint, and cumin - yes, cumin is very prominent to my nose these days - with a soft vanilla undertone. I really like this fragrance, but I'd absolutely love it if they took out the cumin note. I've tried "Le Male Terrible", as it doen't have cumin in it, but the pink pepper just doesn't do it for me.

A great weekend of partying and you find yourself surrounded in a vanilla choc pool surrounded by all the pretty ladies.. and then a cool breeze flows and you find yourself in the moonlight..

longevity : 7-10hrs in hot humid weather. maybe the bottle i got is a reformulated one.
sillage : heavy for 1-2 hrs, moderate for 1-2 hrs and then just fades away.
notes : vanilla vanilla and vanilla.. vanilla opening blast.. then it wanes off , but amazing comes back again for the entire cycle. the spicy notes come up in the middle cycle for a couple of hours and then fade away. The oudh stays very light the middle cycle.. mint lavender and vanilla is what makes the combination attractive. Certainly a pleasant combination.
design : great craftmanship
price : decent for the reformulated one.. if the original version is supposed to be more nuclear then my bad, i missed a masterpiece...

I use to wear this in high school back in the late 90s and it was very strong and beautiful. It was a sillage monster and got me a lot of compliments from girls.

Not at all what I expected or remember in years past. Perhaps my sense of smell has changed. I found this quite powdery, clean, and crisp. I get more lavender cedar than anything else. Maybe the time of year being winter (with less humidity in the air) has something to do with it.

I think Le Mâle doesn't smell at all like Joop... Of course you'll find in both tonka bean, cinnanon and vanilla, which give them a sweet vibe... Like many fragrances. But no mint nor lavender in Joop, and no cherry note in Le Mâle. I own both and no way to confuse them... Le Mâle belongs to a true barbershop's fragrances tradition, whereas Joop is more a club fragrance... To resume myself, there is an ambivalence in Le Mâle you don't find in Joop.
Sadly, they were reformulated... And now Le Mâle is only the shadow of itself.

Received a freebie sample and it is a spicy, sweet musk fragrance. I'd say that it's probably a scent for the evening as it could be a tad heavy for day wear. It's deep, sensual and very adult.

This smells like "Joop".

Both share notes of orange blossom, cardamom, cinnamon, vanilla and sandalwood.

"Le Male" is admittedly less cloying, with the mint top note lightening it somewhat (it doesn't have that warm cough syrup vibe)....but it still really smells like "Joop".

A few years ago, I worked in a restaurant with a gay guy who smelled like he bathed in the stuff. When I ribbed him about it, he replied with disgust "Joop!? God no, this is JEAN PAUL GAULTIER" with a tone that suggested I should look up the name sometime.

Could have fooled me :P

You feel the mint and lavender in the start. In the bottom theres vanilla that goes stronger when the time pass.

Strong scent. At first I didnt like. Now I like it. It has personality, but is not for wearing it everyday. Just a couple days in the week.

I like using it for dates, and meet ups wit fuckbuddys.

Hi Molko,

There is a new IFRA restriction levels concerning about coumarine (contained in tonka beans). Le Male is builded using mainly coumarin as central accord and le male first formulation contains high dosages of this.
These new levels are changing drastically iconic fragrances as Le Male and also Angel (Thierry Mugler). This is only the beginning of a era with diluted formula fragrances (no longevity, no sillage, no charm, but high comercial profits).

How can I know on the online store that is a new formula? Code or the bottle is different? I smelled and sprayed on my skin today in Douglas, but has lower sillage. Long time ago it was very harsh. The new Dior homme version has also disaster sillage and lasting. Why they make these reformulations?:/

Putting aside some differences, to my nose Le male is very similar to Serge Lutens' Chergui. I checked all reviews in here and came to the conclusion that I’m the only one who thinks (or smells) so. Both fragrances share only two notes: amber and sandalwood. I don’t know if this is enough to get a similarity between both or if I received a fake sample. Somebody else noted the similarity? Thanks

TL:DR: Buy the old juice, forget the reformulation.

The reformulated scent has been made "safer" at the cost of longevity and projection. In this process, they lost some notes, and made it less interesting in the process. But make haste, you can still purchase the old juice (Super Le Male, scuba, other collectors versions) for as long as they last.

For the purposes of this review, this will be on the good ol' juice.

A slighty harsh top of mint that "cleans the nostrils." Minty-vanilla bomb for 15 minutes.

Dries down to a vanilla, lavender, and tonka bean base. Awesome. Like no-other. Gives you a clean smell that stands out.

Projection: 10/10
Sillage: 10/10
Longevity: 9/10 (10 hours)
Versatility: 7/10 (best on a night out, not for the workplace)
Compliments: 9/10
Scent: 10/10
Overall: 10/10

Clean and pleasant if not over-applied.

Sweetened (presumably by vanilla) aromatic spice combination. Very potent and recognisable.

Suitable for a night out, unless you are wanting to wear something more unique (or something less loud for that matter). Not entirely appropriate for the office, or for hot weather - excessive application could be cloying.

Have been wearing this off and on for a few weeks and I love it. Two spritzes last forever. The sweet vanilla opener gives way to more interesting spicy/exotic patchouli but always with that powdery thing in the background. The bottle is a little weird but I simply turn the top around and spray from the back. :)

This one is something I love to smell on a guy. I'm not a big fan of overly masculine fragrances that are either too spicy or too aquatic. This is something else, in a league of its own. Very creamy, clean scent, even calming (must be the lavender), you just want to cuddle up to the person wearing it. Not offensive, HOWEVER, this stuff is very potent, you can smell it from a mile away actually even with a small amount. Another thing is that on some people this fragrance smells too minty, which I don't like that much. Definitely not for a man in a suit either.

To start this review, I wouldn't say that this is a cologne that every men should know, but HAVE. Even 1 bottle, at least once in their lives.

Le Male is an oriental fougère fragrance. For those who do not know, fougères have as predominant notes, combinations of lavender, bergamot, geranium, oakmoss, coumarin and amber. It is not necessary to have all these notes for a fragrance to be considered a fougère; but bergamot, oakmoss and lavender are virtually essential for a good fougère. The oriental part is on behalf of notes like vanilla, cinnamon and sandalwood.

Le Male is an intense, sensitive and masculine scent and, at the same time, modern and sexy. I'd even say cozy! In my humble opinion, Le Male is not a cologne for teens, even those who want to look 10 years older, just to impress the girls. The target audience for this fragrance are men over 25 years old.
I consider it ideal for night time, also could be worn in a ballad - in order to make it clear that the man who wears it wants to mark his territory - or in a nice romantic date. On the other hand, I don't think it’s good for hot days, because the aroma doesn't match and the effect can be devastating, as it is a sweet, dry and strong fragrance.

The evolution of this scent, at least on my skin, it's not the greatest, because I think it's quite linear from the start to the end. However, the trail and its durability on the skin are unique characteristics, which put it at the top of the perfumery world. I can guarantee, easily, between 8 to 12 hours of lasting!
For those who don't know its aroma, there are some similar colognes on the market that, changing a little bit here and there, tried to imitate this classic fragrance, which is a big seller in the world, until nowadays. They are: Cuba Gold, 212 Sexy, Romero Britto, Jacomo Rouge, etc.

Now, after all that has been said, are you curious or not to go to the first perfume store and try this gem?

I haven't worn this fragrance in nearly 2 years and didn't replace the bottle I owned (must have bought it 3-4 years ago). I decided to buy a small bottle yesterday and must be wearing the 'reformulation' as this bottle doesn't seem to 'scream out' like my last bottle did. Is that a bad thing for me? No.

There were a number of reasons why I stopped wearing Le Male. Namely:
- other fragrances I wanted to wear instead
- the fact it was a more 'common' and popular fragrance worn by many
- 'beast mode' projection that made me 'that guy' when I didn't want to be 'that guy' despite only applying 2 sprays.

This is a nice fragrance. I enjoy the vanilla/mint combo and the lavender and orange blossom add to it, giving it both (to me) a warm scent that has a 'cooling' nature to it as well. There's a reason why this is a best-seller. Even when I wore it in 'beast mode' I got a lot of compliments.

I'm OK with the reformulation and will try wearing it again this fall/winter. It's good stuff.

When i was a teenager i liked and used a body spray named Intesa Unisex,the red version.
Le Male has the exact same smell,almost identical to my nose.That body spray it's still on the market,very popular in my country and very cheap,around 4 euros....
I'll pass just cause of the resemblance.
Otherwise Le male smells very good,it's noticeable,great longevity and sillage.

awful looking bottle.

Well it took me a while to posting this review of Le Male and I'm only doing it out of necessity really because it's a true classic and I have owned a bottle in the past. Also recently I tried Amouage Reflection and at first didn't really get the parallels drawn between the two but now I see it.
What made me fall out of love with this then? Well I was never really in love with it if I'm honest…And trying it again recently made me remember why.
I think the fact my flat mate of several years used to drench himself in it before going on a night out didn’t help.
I enjoyed it when it first came out the bottle was so striking... cheeky, kitsch, camp, and trashy extroverted nature of Jean Paul Gaultier in general was quite appealing.
To the juice inside though... No disrespect to Francis Kurkdjian… Vanilla and lavender quite fresh but something cheap to it and just not very masculine, Le male has a broader unisex appeal for me. Also now that it has become a victim of it's own success, a cliche and very unoriginal scent for men to wear.

Have tried this twice and is has seemed different on both occasions. Once was at the urging of a female friend, at a high school reunion about a month ago, who raved about how good it smells on a man and dragged me to the Macy's scent counter for a splash. I recall a lot of vanilla giving way to more subtle darker notes, spice, almost patchouli like, oriental and exotic. More urging on the phone today had me try it at Sephora. The opening was sharp and alcoholic, with so much citrus I wasn't sure it was the same scent. It dried down into something sweet and fairly simple, again with heavy vanilla but not much else, like someone spilled their A&W root beer on my wrist. Vexed. I hope it was good for her. :)

I love this time of year and am glad my Jean Paul Gaultier is there. It has strength and sillage, that I wish many other fragrances had. The stuff is loaded down with mint,lavender and vanilla and a touch of orange peel. I remember when I first bought mine for myself,I thought it smelt just like the air freshener lavender they put in bathrooms. A lady here in Greenville that I get fragrances from let me keep testing it out on the little strips, but also on myself. That is when you know you have made the right purchase. Fellows spray it on and walk around and see how your body chemistry works with it,find a bench and sit down how are people reacting to it. You want to know both how women and men are taking to it.Look fellows you know what I am trying to say smell, style, and architecture is not a one way street.You will know soon enough if it's for you.Le Male stays pretty consistent to me but the subtle changes are noticeable.It really is a fall and winter scent but I believe or at least I wear mine middle September-until the end of June. I don't say this often but the after shave splash is wonderful. Le Male,to me is gorgeous in a powerful but cheerful way. It is a dress up go out to dinner and a movie scent,but by all means not formal. If you have not tried it do and give it a chance. It takes time to see the beauty in things.

haven't worn this in forever. Bought a bottle at Macy's last week and I can't stop wearing this now. What a relaxing scent for a man. The lavender/mint/vanilla combo is just awesome. All this talk about being reformulated....I sprayed myself three times today. Two on neck and one under my shirt on the chest and after spraying this at 6:30 AM (it is now 9:30 pm) I can still smell it on my skin. This is after going to the gym. The only other fragrance with this much staying power I've ever experienced is Aventus. In my book Le Male is still great.

this scent (even though i own the reformulated version)is a true masterpiece! the strong vanilla in this scent accompanied by the lavender is a true woman and compliment getter for sure. make sure not to apply too much of this, though, as it is very strong with a heavy projection (and i imagine its even stronger on the original)

The longevity of this scent impressed my immensely. i just picked up a shirt that i wore maybe 6 days ago and i can still smell this going strong!

Even the design of the bottle is great! some people will be creeped out by it being a male body, but, if you aren't a complete homophobe, it is really comfortable to hold and the sprayer is great, too.

scent 4.5/5
longevity 5/5
projection 4/5
bottle 4/5

if anyone knows where i can get the non-reformulated version, let me know! i would appreciate it greatly as i am looking to get it :)

Warning: Do not overspray with Le Male, you'll be going back to your bathroom and washing your neck with water just to make it subtle and toned down.

Don't get me wrong this is like a baby powder for adults with citrus and sweet vanilla and I like how it smells.
Just don't use to much because the longevity and silage are great.
If you spray too much you will cloy your self along with people around you.

In my collection today I have around 30 bottles. Over the past 15 years, I have owned over 200 bottles. If I had to choose the best fragrance, the best juice that I have ever had, I would choose....Le Male...by Jean Paul Gaultier. This is the sexiest, longest lasting, and most powerful scent that I have ever had. This is an absolute timeless treasure that has no equal. It is, however, quite common, but I do believe it is slowly becoming less common - and thus time to be revisited. A masterpiece, and the only EDT that will FOREVER be in my collection.

My grandma used to sell fragrances, while Boucheron was what she sold primarily, she still had many fragrances that she would trade to sell. After taking an interest in fragrances a couple of months ago I asked her about it, she told me about what she did, and happened to have a bottle of this left over. If what is said about the reformulation is true, I was lucky to not get a bottle of the new batch, because this stuff is amazing. Powerful and it will last me all day. Of course it smells great too. While it can be overwhelming or sickly if worn to often, I have no complaints!

I know it is notorious , and i was never gonna buy it but i did anyway.Kind of blind buy but i had read reviews of it here many times.

It is a powerful scent.It doesnot end thats for sure.I dont bathe in scents , and use 3-4 sprays only and thats enough with this.It lingers for many hours , and you will feel atleast even if it might be common , but still it is there.It doesnot feel like waste of money.

It is different in my collection , i like the weird bottle too , i dont like the bottle design , but when i move fingers on it , it feels good for fingers,Kind of like pressure point therapy haha.

One thing was weird too , the packaging.I felt like i am buying some whiskey or something.

Everyone who is planning to buy this,please read my review very carefully.I had neglected all the negative reviews about le male saying it has been reformulated and that it doesn't last and went on to read the reviews saying its "sexy","women love this","excellent compliment getter" and blah blah blah...I am not saying these are false claims but these may have been true with old le male.I bought a bottle of le male yesterday and its genuine which i am sure of.People say only 2 sprays are enough.I had about 20..6 on my skin(as some people said it lasts on their clothes..The silage is like the worst i have ever felt in my life.On my clothes it lasted though but i can smell it only when i put my nose on the shirt.So i request everyone not to blind buy this and if you are really keen on buying this classic(as I was) go to a perfume store and try it.I don't think that will be any better but may be you can get your hands on an old le male

They call it synthetic , cloying and relate it with homosexuality, a lot of other weird things about le male remain in discussions which shows its popularity.

I personally never want to wear this (not because the insane allegation but i have a lot to wear) but i really dont think its a bad scent at all.

The key is to know how to apply it, if u spray it like aqua di gio or blue d chanel its gonna be very cloying and offensive to some extent.

Moderate application produces very beautiful sandalwood vanilla scent , which is really a head turner.

this cologne holds a special place in my heart, being in highschool in the late'90s, this was THE go-to cologne whenever there was a party at someones house, most of us got this as christmas or birthday presents, some of us bought this with our own hard-earned cash, and we all wore this with pride, we where ready to party, we meant buisness, we where dangerous.

this cologne reminds me of days gone by, when I was young and didn't have many worries, it reminds me of the awesome home-alone parties where we drank WAY to much, the parties where you finally got to fool around with that pretty girl at your school, those parties where everybody where cool and had fun, those parties we would talk about for a the whole following week.

Opening on this is very strong and synthetic, smells very bubblegum, sugery and vanilla like.
it dries down to a bit more subtle vanilla, still very sweet.
don't overspray this as it's a sillage monster, longevity is also of the charts, lasts forever.

bottledesign is the classic male body, looks strange, not to bad to grip, but I can see why some people get put off by it.

I can see why some people would hate this, it's synthetic and sweet, very loud if you aren't careful, it's very overused and widely considered a "juvenile" cologne.

but for me who was young in the '90s, this is special to me, when I apply it I still feel dangerous....

Okay, people, listen up! Especially those complaining about reformulations, poor longevity, poor projection, etc.
I think I've written this somewhere before, but I've got Le Male on my left forearm, and Tesori d'Oriente Africa on my right one... I can hardly tell the difference between the two fragrances. They're so similar it's ridiculous! Perhaps TdO is a bit woodier and spicier, but it's a nearly perfect dupe of Le Male for a ridiculously cheap price. It's a drugstore fragrance (marketed to women!). If you want to save money, and/or you don't care for the bottle, get Tesori d'oriente Africa. It has good longevity and projection. Also, it lasts long on clothes. There are quite a few really good dupes of more pricey fragrances in the Tesori d'Oriente line. Look them up!

UPDATE: Le Male projects moderately on me, and has poor longevity. I can hardly smell it three hours after application, so I've just sprayed it on again.

As fot the comparison with TdO Africa, I'd say Le Male is more powdery. I'm glad to have a bottle of this in my collection, and I will use it up, but why repurchase this when I can have 100 ml of the same scent for about 10 dollars?

I hate to admit when I'm wrong, but I was wrong about le male. My initial response to this one was "meh". I hated the bottle and didn't think the scent was very good. But yesterday I decided to revisit and give it another try. Maybe it's because I held on to my test strip, and let it dry down. But I all I know is I can't keep it away from my nose. This is a smooth and very classic frag. I know it's popular, but for good reason. Ill be buying this tomorrow. But I still hate the bottle.


**UPDATE**
Bought it. Sprayed it. Wore it.
Not giving me the projection I was expecting. Its lasting many hours on my skin, but I have to reapply halfway through the day. Classic scent of course. Reminds me of JOOP as others have said. I sprayed both in the store just to compare. I got this on sale for $39 so it wasnt a total waste. BUT there were other scents I was on the fence on purchasing and I sorta feel let down and wish I had purchased a different frag. Oh well, on to the next.

The IFRA is a product regulation body whos job imo is to make sure there are no neurotoxins in perfumes, wich is fine and desirable, however I DONT dont want the ifra turning into a perfume hating biased ideological group with an agenda to cripple the perfume industry and quality scents and i believe perfumes buyers should question the ifra for truthful declarations verifiable stats and accountability when modifications to an appreciated product occurs.

Le Male When it was first released I wore it on special occasions and got heaps of compliments, I told whoever asked what it was I was wearing and they went out and purchased it now....boring everyman and his dog is wearing it. I crossed over to Gautier2 and love the difference and now I don't tell anyone what it is. Gautier2 is warm sensual long lasting and very vanilla. I love it just for "special" occasions but lets just keep that between you guys ok.

This is one of those scents that has just outlived itself. Right up there with Drakaar Noir and Angel, it is so common and recognizable that it has lost all uniqueness for me. Nothing masculine about it, my 17 year old son would not even go near it. After looking at the bottle for nearly a year, we just chucked it out. My husband wouldn't use it either, he said it smelled like a woman's cologne.

I just found the original, vintage, magic, beastly, sharp, 4.2 oz, Le Male from the old days at a small perfume shop, and even in a yellowing "tester" box to boot!I'm SO STOKED!!! I thought I'd never again be able to possess this gem in it's original, legendary strength, and formulation again in my life!!! Woohooo!!! The woman even accepted my offer of $59.99 for the full 4.2 as well!!!

Nice fragrance but I wont buy it because I have smelled it over 100 times in different occasions, places, I dont want to be catagorized as guy who wears le male.

My ex wears this and I love the scent this projects off his skin. At first I didn't notice it to be Le Male, much to my surprise because I own a bottle. On him it smelled much fresher but still sweet and pleasant, like watermelon. I'd imagine it's just how the cologne works with his body chemistry. I miss that unique smell...

I have just received a sample, a tiny 1 ml vial with dabbing stick. I don't know if it's the reformulation or not, but I dabbed the stick two times in it and put it on my hand - and it instantly hit me hard. Much too strong, much too sweet, instantly cloying, it actually made me sick to my stomach. Very, very much like Joop, the red one. I have washed my hand countless times to get rid of it, and I can still smell it. I don't know about women, but this stuff totally turns me off.

I love colognes with vanilla but I don't like this cologne. It's way too sweet it really needs musk. The Perry Ellis 360 White is just like this but more manly it smells better because of the musk that levels out that super sweet vanilla and it's like 75% cheaper then JPG.

A timeless classic.
I disagree with the usual lament that this shouldn't be worn in hot weather... I think 1 spray of this smells really fantastic in the summer. In contrast, I would not want to wear this fragrance in cold weather, it's just too crisp and bright.

Listen it's not the cologne's fault a douchebag ex of yours wore it. Smells trigger memories and this baby triggers my most intense and close encounters. I had a white teddy bear and put on a blue bandana on him then sprayed Gaultier anytime I would hug it it reminded me of my guy. Sexy guy cologne is what I call it. I love this scent and it's extremely long lasting.

I received the tester for this in the mail today (awesome that Amazon sells the tiny vials). As soon as you spray it on it hits you... not in a great way. I instantly felt like I put too much on. It was one spray on my wrist! Sooo....

Opening: Super intense, but way too synthetic. It feels like it's trying too hard. Takes me back to those days in the club when you would see a guy looking desperate to get laid. He probably smelled like this. Definitely has a party vibe to it. Lots of mint and vanilla. If you like mint and vanilla by the bucket load, get your wallet out; this one's yours.

Projection: Great for the first hour, then pretty close to the skin. I have average skin: not too oily, not too dry, so if you have oily skin, it might hug you a little too hard, and reduce the sillage, but watch out about countering that with an initial over-spray - remember what I said about the intense opening.

Dry down: It does lose that powerful punch in the nose, and the mint dies away, but most of the opening notes remain, just more subtle of course. If you like the opening, you'll like the dry down. The scent grew on me after it settled down a bit, and I don't mind it.

Longevity: 6-8 hours. I live in Southern California, and I wouldn't wear this in the summer - It would knock everyone out, then leave you after 3 hours to go find some new friends. Not a signature scent either - it's for occasions, and fall/winter. Maybe splash some on in the spring.

Bottom line: It is unique, I'll give it that. Anything but safe and generic, so if you want to stand out, the Man in the Can is for you... just go easy on the trigger, so you're not 'that guy' at the bar. This isn't a manly cologne. So far as notes and what not, I could list them all, but you can get all that from the website. You're interested in how wearable this cologne is. In my opinion, it isn't, but every nose is different, and tastes vary. This just isn't the course for my horse. It isn't terrible, hence the three stars.

A very loud vanilla powdery cologne that pretty much screams you want to get laid. I have heard others say it smells like porn in a bottle. And it does. But as funny as all of that sounds, the fragrance is not bad at all. I like the interesting take on vanilla, powder, mint and light spices. Whoever blended it did a very good job at making a very unique scent that you could recognize in a second. Please don't over spray it though, or you WILL become cologne guy.

Definitely reformulated perhaps in 2012 and now stores are shedding the originals. The main difference between the old and new is the sillage and top notes. Instead of the beautiful blast of vanilla I get a strong alcohol scent with weak vanilla. Within 20 minutes it has completely skipped the infamous vanilla stage right into the powdery dry down. It still smells great as I love the powdery dry down but it's sillage is within arms length the whole time and more sprays does not help. I no longer get a good scent trail past 1 hour and that's with 4-6 sprays, if I would do 4-6 of the vintage I would be escorted out of public areas. And that's what I loved about Le Male, 3 sprays got me through the day. Now I must reapply by lunch.
It's still a fantastic cologne and a signature scent for me. I'm not sure if a chemical was banned and that was the reason for the change, I sure hope it wasn't a technique to force more sprays for financial benefit.
No matter what the cause, the change was for the worst. A epic amazing cologne just became "nice". So sad.

LE MALE has been REFORMULATED, bought a bottle in early 2013, sprayed it about 3 times, intially for the first 30 minutes it projects but gets close to the skin for the remainder of the drydown, was expecting a projection/longevity beast but was thorougly let down great smell but doesn't last and is overvalued for its price! buyer beware!!!

In response to previous comment; It hasn't been reformulated. Working in the fragrance industry, you learn to be able to smell out the fragrances in different settings and they smell different on a daily basis. Also, as we age, we slowly lose the sensitivity of our sense of smell. Also, LM is more of a linear fragrance, where you smell the individual notes, but there isn't a sharp prominent note that lasts through out the whole longevity while wearing it.

As a lady i tried this one , my ex who is still friends with me got it from his current girlfriend. He is not into perfumes so much so i contemplated that robbing him of that one would not do him much harm; however,he did not agree,and for a reason! This one smells like a shy,quiet guy, an unassuming chap that aplies just a tinniest dab of a perfume for his own sake and the sake of that girl who will be lucky to come close after long,desperate struggles. It smells unique and comforting, sending a clear message 'i will not hurt you,don't worry.' It is nto a display of masculin strength or instincts and burning desire dressed in animalic notes. It is a perfumethat speaks from the point of character, of personality and ideas,not from the point of sexes. It is for a man who minds what is in your head,not between your legs. It is also classy but not bragging,snobbish classy. In my opinion it is not feminin, i would not wear it, but it is interesting to have it on your rist from time to time.

Ahhhh LeMale, how I love thee. The guy I was in LOVE with back in the day was wearing this non stop, and to this day a whiff of it makes me......hot lol. It may be overused BUT I dont care. If every man smelled like this I would be just FINE with it!
On a side note, the other day I was in the supermarket and one gentleman stopped another and said"MAN, you smell good, what is that you got on?" He replied, "Le Male"....I caught a whiff and it sure was.

Bottom line, still works, still gets noticed, still makes people "happy" :)

Response to Aryo:

I am always wary of fragrances that don't have lids as they can be prone to evaporation.

You would see a stain if the bottle was leaking, I suspect it's evaporating.

***Unless you have someone in your household that loves it as much as you, and helps themselves to it when you're not looking ;)


It is a really gorgeous fragrance, my husband has worn it for years now, as I bought it for him when we were dating. He told me he's never worn an aftershave where MEN ask him what he's wearing, until this one.

Good luck with it! K

Le male is the result of adding baby powder to a gallon of vanilla ice cream. A very sweet and at one time unique fragrance. Unfortunately, I can't stand it (just like Joop) as some overzealous individuals have doused themselves in it giving me a splitting headache and rushing to check my sugar levels. I will say this is a great fragrance with quality and longevity on par with A-men. JPG chose to have a limbless bottle representing his line up so even though bottle is unique, it still looks weird. Maybe they need to have a red bottle with green stripes to match up Freddy Kruger's sweater, that would explain the loss of limbs.

This scent would be very sexy on a man. My boyfriend wears it and I go crazy whenever he wears this. It smells so good on him! It might sounds gross as my dad used to wear this fragrance when he was younger, so when my boyfriend wears this,it does smells somewhat similar at first but still different and smells nicer on him. Must be his body chemistry with the scent I guess. This fragrance definitely smells better and quite different on him, so I didn't complain or start comparing being that my dad used to wear the same one when I was little. This one is definitely recommended for men, I find it very addicting and sexy.

A very sexy scent. More appropriate for a night out on the town than a day at the office. The bottle is a bit, um...artsy, but I can forgive that because the juice inside is so sensual. Begins with a burst of lavender and then I smell soft cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of coffee, which is a nice change in a world of men's colognes that seems dominated by citrus or aquatic notes. Le Male is not a fragrance that every guy could pull off. He needs to be secure enough in his sexuality that the powdery feminine quality this has does not scare him away. It's a warm smell and should be worn quite lightly, as though it is your natural musk. Women love this one.

Hey guys, check out "Africa" by Tesori d'Oriente. I'm wearing it right now, and it smells very similar to "Le Male" to my nose. It starts very cool and herbal - you can smell the artemisia and the mint, then it gradually progresses into a sweeter (very sweet) vanilla/honey scent that blends with the cooler, minty scent, so it's like warm and fresh at the same time. 100 ml cost about 4 euro in Italy. It's a drugstore dupe. One spray and you're set. It projects and lasts for a whole day!

Trickykid300 is right, he does not have a fake one.
It is really ruined now the juice.
By Jean Paul Gaultier self.
It's reformulated , watered down.
It is a waste and ruined.
So i wont buy it anymore.
So, some of you might have still a good old version.
But the new version is spreading.
So we will get more and more reactions about that the longevity is bad now.

I dont understnad how people are getting longevity out of this. It only last on me for a couple of hours...and does anybody else notice that when you overapply this there is a strong alcohol smell...its underneath the mint...like there using mint to cover it up. I like it but its starting to go the way of cool water, where its becoming more synthetic and cheap. I would pay double the price of this to get the same smell made from essential oils....but this is just too watered down and cheap smelling

Everything is so balanced and perfect about it. really love this fragrance. Even though my dad used to wear it, i still plan on buying it. I love the vanilla in this perfume. Never ever saw a perfume that smelled this way. Really unique. Totally deserves its fame.

Yes, it's been reformulated. It's much less fresh, sharp, and youthful now. It smells powdery and dowdy, like an old man, far past his prime, who's lost his virility. It smells as dated as it really is. This, coupled with the fact that everybody's been wearing this scent for years, is tragic, as the only reason to smell like 60 year old man is because his fragrance of choice smells amazing. Well, Le Male no longer does, and projection and longevity are atrocious. It's the same story with the vaunted and once spectacular, A*Men. Sad, diluted, and ruined, all to meet the bottom line. Capitalism at its very finest.

Absolutelly REFORMULATED! They ruined a masterpiece of gourmand scents! The old Le Male was: A blast of minty freshness that lasts about 3h with the sweet-cooling scent, projects about 4m range around you with longevity of 12h (minimum). The new Le (crap) Male is: A poor and shy mix of vanilla (sweeter than older version), lavender and a hint of mint, much less fresh than older version. Almost PLAIN from top to heart notes. A drydown bit less powdery, and... That's the new shit. Longevity overall is still good, but projection? Just a shame! Ruined, they just totally ruined my lovely scent.

I blind bought JPG Le male, and it arrived 3 days ago..

I was a little afraid, but for my surprise, i really enjoyed it..

I can see and understand all the bad comments i read here, but fortunately i liked it, at least the smell, cos the longevity..

I believe people are correct when they say it's been reformulated..

The longevity is really poor.. Three hours max, here in Brazil..

Poeple criticize the bottle design, its called Le male, its a male body as the body. More straight forward than that is not possible. All cologne bottles are square or box form, this one actually is original so it shouldnt be criticized... Le male is a scent that when it came out was not similar to anything ever smelled, and the bottle was not similiar to any bottle ever made. Its just a love love situation.

Le male is my Power scent, especaly when I have to play the metrosexual or company Fag. It screams I'm scented and scented very well.
Girls love it cause its so Androgenisticly loud, but works as a morning freash scent that fades into a great evening swagger. It go's great with the gurl version it's what me and my partner would wear tbem comlementry when escorting charging the highest Agencey prices.Too sum it up:
smells like money honey, smells VIP, demands attention is unique, charms females & complements the "le femme"(dunno girl one) but would be lost and muddled at a Gay bar

This is my favorite scent hands down. I will always have a bottle of this stuff. For me this scent has staying power, projection and smells great. I personally do not think this is for ladies at all, to me it's a man's scent only. I have tried tons of scents from cheap to very high end and still love this one the most. This is best in cooler weather and evening events. However I like it so much that I wear it a lot and all different times.

I had a feeling, man. He wears niche. His Top 100 vid was virtually blasphemy to me. Personally, I rock only the most unique, kick-ass, amazing and vintage designer fragrances. They're designed to appeal to others, not to be artsy, experimental, and or merely pretentious. They also don't cost a small fortune either. I'd have ripped that top 100 Designer Fragrances video to shreds, if I didn't laud the effort that it must have taken him to make it. That, I can appreciate, but I ask you, how can anyone who has probably worn ANY ONE of those fragrances no more than five times in the past two years, make a Top 100 designer video??? On another note, imagine how ballin' the guy would be if he wasn't wasting $200 per bottle on fragrances that don't smell unique, just weird, and by the dozens!!! It's a little sad, in a way, but oh well... to each his own. :) I'm rather proud of my own little FB, designer/vintage collection. They're all ranked in descending order and I'd consider the first 18 of them to be straight 10/10s. Once I have those final three, I'm out of the game, man. I have other things to drop money on, and I'll be smelling amazing for the rest of my life! :) And oh yeah... I wonder just who Marc is on here.

Okay so once I invited this 9.5/10 over to my house for some quality time, and I was in my room blankly staring at the gathering collection of colognes thinking 'Which of you is the sexiest of them all?' I confidently pulled the flamboyant bottle from my shelf and had a short nose-gasm when I sprayed it on. 'How can she resist?' I wondered, 'This iiis Le Male...' She comes over and assertively wrap my arms around her and it's good for a second until she draws back in quiet horror, and says 'You smell like my dad!' I was shamed, and then thought, 'At least I know you have daddy issues, so psychologically this might have been a good idea!'

in a word this scent is .......sexy........thats it and nobody does sexy the way la male does it .......not even close . this fragrance is sex in a bottle and im so so so glad the ppl at JPG have made the perfect bottle to go with the fragrance ......cheers for that .
it opens up with this blast of mint lavender a tinge of peach talc and oceanic mist . the dry down is where the money is ......wow ....the vanilla citrus powdery mild spice and warm amber just blow me away every time .........and i have been using this scent for a pretty long time now . its so sexy you cant believe that you have what it takes to keep up with its sex appeal ......honestly ......guys no matter how sexy u think u are this scent will trump u .......i can see even brad pitt thinking 'damn how do i keep up with this scent'..
ppl who know what im talking about will agree with me when i say this scent is not just timeless but also ageless ......EG.it will be great on guys even 30 years from now whether its a teenager or a dignified gentleman in his 60,s......i guess i will be the latter 30 years from now .
anyway overall rating 9/10......cant go wrong much with this scent ....you can wear it everywhere at anytime in any season ......thats why its a classic .

Le Male is a really great fragrance. Off the top is kind of powdery which some people may not like, but after about thirty minutes it changes to a masculine vanailla which is really satisfying. This projects like a beast and will last a long time. Always sample a fragrance before buying.

I'll do pretty the same remark as I said on Acqua di Gio.
Victim of its own success, period.

It's a truly mainstream masterpiece, a must-have. But...
Too worn, not original to have it.

I mean, what's the point to have a perfume worn by so many people ? In my opinion, a perfume is an alter-ego, a second skin, an olfactive personality... You won't have one if you wear it on the street or in a party.

But at home or with female friends, go for it !

Smell : 4 / 5
Versatility : 2 / 5
Projection : 5 / 5
Longevity : 5 / 5

Overall : 16 / 20

I'm a user of Le Male for over 11 years obviously because I loved it for smell, longevity and sillage. Over the years but I can see there is marked quality difference in terms of both longevity and sillage and totally agree with jiggaman with his observations. I've always been skeptical of perfume stores and bought these from either popular department stores or from major international airport duty free shops, so its highly unlikely I'm getting not an original one. So it could be either something extremely wrong with mine and my wife's olfactory senses or the product got watered down over the years. I'm not sure I would ever know the answer. For a change (and to test), the last bottle I bought is a 200mL one from an Australian online seller "feeling sexy" (who have a 100% positive review feedback with 1000s of bottles sold and is based in Melbourne with an excellent response both in terms of postage and questions) for $98 and all I cay is its still very consistent with the one I bought from a Singapore airport duty free shop! So its all the same... just not the same Le Male I knew 5 or 6 years ago. :(

@jiggaman - I bought a bottle of this for my partner in Feb, and 2 sprays creates nice cloud around him. It is a big cloud, easily noticeable. Applying 8-10 sprays? You either bought some dodgy bottle or it's your body reaction to overapplying. Maybe ask somebody if they can smell it? Lack of compliments - there may be reasons for that...

Not too sure why "very long lasting" has the most votes. I just bought a bottle 2 months ago and it gets 2-4 hours max at full power using 8-10 sprays. Sillage is about 3-6 feet within that time frame. After that it sits close to the skin for another 3-4 hours. Youll get compliments if youve applied recently,, But its nowhere near the beast that ppl are portraying it to be. Maybe back in the day but not the new juice that's being sold.

I tought JPG le male would be the perfect first try in the male fragrances. And it was what I expected with a twist! When I first applied the scent immediately brought me a memory and I couldn't identify which one or where it was. I first thought it has been from a salon, a shampoo? No. A hair spray? Definitely no. And then suddenly it hit me ...... Maroccan oil !!!!!! The scent on my skin is exactly the same as Moroccan Oil, and is not that I don't like it I really do. Everyone complements me when I extra condicionates my hair. If you do like the scent pair with the moisturiser treatment! Hahahah

I wore this 10-12 years ago in high school. The girls thought it smelled so good, and so did I. Not too many people wore this at the time so you didn't get "Oh it's Le Male...."

I still think it smells good, but I don't wear it anymore.

For me, this is a fragrance that I associate with fond memories, but I probably won't use it again because I won't get the same reactions as I did in the past and it suited my personality at the time I wore it.

I'll never forget it though.

When sprayed on it smells a bit messy to be hounest.
I get much mint mixed with alot other ingredients.
But when it settles down, it slowly turns into something beautiful.
Getting a great mix of mint lavender and vanilla, thats what i detect.
But i own a bottle that i bought for like 5 years ago.
I do not know exactly from what year it is.
But that was lasting and lasting.
For sure did get 10-12 hours.
The juice in it looks a bit Green.
But now i recently bought a new one, to not run out of this magic juice.
But this juice looks transparant, and i don't get the longevity anymore. now only half of the longevity of the juice what i got in the old bottle.
So, i think its reformulated or watered down.
I Bought it at an official perfumestore so it must be a real one.
This is really bad. so they ruined the magic juice.
It's too much about money nowadays. :-(

Ok, so this cologne has been around for a long time, and yes, some may see it as highly divisive; I don't, but that is how this juggernaut of a scent has come to be judged these days. With great popularity sometimes comes great criticism. So be it. I have loved this scent from the day I tried it, to now. It never fails to impress me, and I am even such a devotee (or is that such a fool?) for anything Le Male, that I collect the limited edition bottles. I don't have them all, but a lot of them, and I consider each bottle a work of art. Mass-produced art, but art nonetheless. :-)
This cologne is so well-balanced and composed, that it has no definite season - you could confidently wear Le Male all year round. That is its ultimate brilliance -the ability to defy time, weather and seasons. Such is its versatility and adaptability. There are not too many other fragrances you can say that about.

The last time i used this was back in 1997. Since then, i never came across of it again until yesterday....What a classic? Francis was only 23 was he composed this perfume but his inspiration was great and inovating. The symphony of notes is so exciting and alluring that touches you deep inside. The magnetic aura around the person who wears it is so attractive not only for the other sex but also for those of the same. Actually, this is the idea of the perfume and the commercial campaings are promoting it as well. For me, it is not a gay perfume but on the same time, not masculine either. It is a clean barbeshop, powdery and spicy perfume that plays with the emotions of the wearer and keeps you focused all the time. Longevity and sillage are above average. Thank god it is not widely used now so we can put it on the skin and bring back memories!
The sweet dry lavender with vanilla, tonka and basil gives a divine feeling to it without becoming sickly sweet or synthetic. The cinnamon is playing on the backround without becoming obvious but is only giving them a little "spice" just to help them show up properly. The powedery feeling is not an old man's or baby powder but a dry talcum barbeshop powder what brings in mind brushed shaven gentlemen. Sometimes it gives you the feeling of entering a small old barbershop around the corner, with their talcums and old type colognes like 4711. You smell the vintage aura but on the same time, somethinfg very futuristic. This perfume, the compo of this perfume is, it was and it will be the greatest vanilla/tonka/lavender compo of all time. Its release back in 1995 was something groundbraking that hit all ages and men of types. Kids, teenagers, professionals, singles, married, old, zingolos, with all and everywhere was le male. It is a perfumes that stimulates the brain, touched the heart, fulfills the stomach and wakes up emotions. Crowd, this is it, Le Male! Tip you hat!!

This is one of the most distinct male perfumes ever made which divides the masses by the excellent nose of Francis Kurkdjian.

When you first spray it on your nose will be hit by very strong and synthetic blast of mint, lavender and vanilla/tonka combo. For me it is not a bad thing as I enjoy breathing in deeply after freshly spraying as it gives me a very cooling sensation.

After a while the mint and lavender subdue and slightly spicy vanilla/tonka takes the centre stage. This stays pretty linear until the end of the life of the fragrance. Orange blossom and woods can be detected very faintly for most of the time.

Performance is excellent; longevity is about 10 hours, projection and silage is very good. I use this during colder weather and usually spray 3 times max. As far as versatility goes I use it during the day and night but would NOT wear it on date because you run a risk of smelling like an ex-boyfriend.

This leads onto one of the bad points of Le Male which is its popularity therefore it's prone to bad associations more so than less popular perfumes. Additionally some men might find it too feminine or powdery for their liking.

Overall I really like it and keeping rocking it. I don't care if it's been done to death.

Le Male did not always have my affections. To be honest, the first couple times I smelled it, I was unimpressed because it seemed weak. However, that all changed when my friend got this one for me as a gift.

Opening: Creamy. How else can I really describe it? Sort of this minty, vanilla, cinnamon fresh smell. Subtle.

Sillage: I guess I must be late to the game (if they changed the formulation) because this one isn't a monster on me. Its just like a gentle halo of deliciousness floating around me. 1-3 ft for 1-3 hrs.

Longevity: Meh. But its great because it changes over its whole lifespan, to more of a woody vanilla smell. 3-4 hours.

Gripes: Do wish for more longevity so I can keep its wonderful aroma around me. Kind of irritates my skin, maybe just me, but its reasonable. Can be pricey.

Best for: Wow, you could wear this one almost anywhere. The mint really gives it a sweet diversity. I would say this is a fantastic day wear for spring or summer. Fresh and sweet.

Overall: JPG had a rags to riches story for me. I wrote it off as too weak, too old school, strange advertising etc. But the love came when I started wearing it daily, and noticing how people leaned in to smell me. Its like a minty, spicy, vanilla cocktail; rich and complex. I think LM has been the impetus for other cologne designers to step up their game, and I adore its innovation, still ahead of its time.

To me it smells alright. Heavy vanilla and mint. Not the food type of vanilla though. It smells more like the vanilla thats in makeup and stuff. Very synthetic. I guess it is a pleasant smell. I definitely wouldn't say it smells bad. It becomes much more enjoyable in the dry down were the mint fades and the vanilla gets richer.

Versatility 6.5/10 This is made to be a date and night out scent. Rightfully so, however you CAN use this in the daytime. I for one have worn it to school. Although it does feel a bit out of place it didn't cause any problems. Winter and cooler spring/fall days. Summers a definite no go for le male.

Projection: 10/10 Total beast mode. People on the other side of the hallway could smell me. Depending on how and where your planning to where this be careful with the trigger.

Longevity 10/10 Insane. If I didn't shower I think this might last a week. Annoying almost.


Overall: 7/10 The only reason I wear this is for the compliments. Girls LOVE this shit. Definite lady killer. That being said, people who don't like it, don't like it. I had some people come up to me saying I smelled like toilet paper. lol. Not my favorite but it does its job.

Le Male is the only aftershave I own that I have trouble wearing. I have to be in the right frame of mind to appreciate its lingering powdery effect.
Under no circumstances will I ever put it on in hot weather, because the scent is blighted upon the first spray becoming extremely unpleasant.
I loved it at first and did not buy it on a whim, but nowadays the powder notes are becoming tedious.

Does Every REAL LeMale Bottle have Jeanpaulgaultier.xxx on the BOTTOM of the bottle ? mine have lemale-jpg.xxx on the bottom of the bottle and i bought it from a huge shop in SPAIN , could that be a fake one? i'm wondering !

A smooth musk of Vanilla, a great fragrance but has the ability to give you a headache so careful with how much you spray. Too little just makes you feel like its faded and too much just gives you a headache. You have to find your balance with this one. Good bottle and the tin can packaging comes in handy, I use it as a penny box

Great smell. Bad sillage and longevity. Even sprayed some on my clothes and it barely stays. I get about 30 minutes with this stuff. It smells amazing but jsut doesn't last.

Bought it from an official Amazon.com seller on Amazon as well as from Sephora. Don't know what the problem is. Such a great fragrance with over weighed flawes.

Wow, I love this classic. So deep and monstery, everything on this monster is good. you want smell good? it smells good. You want good longevity, longevity 10 hours easy, projection? monster... only downside is versatility, it can only wear in cold spring nights, fall and winter... Good vanilla sweet scent. Love it!


Smell: 8.5/10.
Longevity: 9/10.
Projection: 9/10.
Versatility: 6.5/10.

overall a good cold weather fragrance. To me everybody can wear it.

Overall score: 9/10.

One of my first, good but may lack some refinement, can get a little obnoxious at times but sure is a compliment getter, though I didn't wore it that much because a friend had it. I give it a 3.5/5, with 1.0 meaning awful, and 5 being a classic

Bought the travel flask limited edition of this bcoz i dislike the original bottle design.
Smells very nice & super long lasting.. 1 week++ on clothings.
During sweaty & humid moments the smell kinda like turns to a burn rubberish vibe.
Heheh..
It projects like no other perfume does (its a beast/ monster).
Sillage is super too.

Love it, or hate it, either way JPG Le Male is an undeniable classic in the world of men's fragrances. I've worn it on and off since my freshman year of college, and I never really smell it too much on myself, and when I do I don't really care for it up close. That being said, this is all about the projection. The trail JPG leaves behind is full of sex appeal, like it or not, this is always a hit with the fairer sex. Throw your bias aside, spray on some Le male, and go for a night out. I am 100% sure you will get some compliments. JPG is your wing man, he gets the conversation started, you do the rest.

Hm, how can I put it...

The cologne is nice, soft, powdery in a sense, definitely not bad.

But in terms of my own nose, I would not wear this even if you gave me the cologne.

It has been worn so many times by so many people, and not even worn on a normal level, I mean like OD you wanna suffocate people level that I can't stand it anymore.

This cologne to me has become like CKONe:

You'll always smell it and think its nice but in your mind you'll be like "Come On Man" -_-

JPG leMale is a top 10 cologne in my book. Has great presentation, powerful scent and most of all the ladies go crazy over this stuff. Vanilla and lavender are the two main notes you get outta LeMale. Perfect for anytime in my opinion. A great buy if you come across a gift set but Cuba Gold by Cuba Paris is the cheaper version of this and last just the same so shop around

I could fall inlove with this smell.I did try it on my self and i just cant stop smelling my wrist, my co worker who is a male actually smelled it inches away from me and suddenly told me i smell sweet. I'll use it for the sake of not putting it in my storage collection without using it again. I think girl would like this kind of male fragrance too~

funny how people say this perfume is very strong and lasts all day on the skin. Well then you will know that the scent was reformulated, love this perfume, but for collectors, should know that the perfumes were designed to be used every day, and not to be on the shelves. Yes the scent is weaker, but still a wonderful fragrance, we will have to reapply 2 times a day, but I love this smell. le male, may be weaker, but still an excellent fragrance, in fact the idea is that the scents are to consume every day, not to have for collection. is just my opinion.

attention, this is the reformulated version

It seems to me Le Male is a love/hate fragrance. Some reviewer wrote it is a gay fragrance. I can only disagree with them. It has a very sweet vanilla smell. It is not the usual "manly" scent, but calling it gay is ridiculous. The opening is very sharp, but it smoothens after 20 minutes or so. wwhen not over applied,it can be a subtle scent. The projection and the longevity is great. My nose says it is a great fragrance.

This is like... Bvlgari Black. Both are sweet and built around a very modern note. In Black we have rubber, brand new tire rubber and here in Le Male instead of rubber there's plastic. And with plastic I mean the kind of smell that is in play dough. I absolutely adore it, however... I choose Black over this any time because this one is waaaaaaay too common and unoriginal.

Yeayea women love it... Noot.

Yesterday I received my bottle from the official Jean Paul Gaultier webshop. Now I know for sure: Le Male is definitely reformulated.

I have 3 bottles of Le Male and they all are very weak fragrances. Bought the oldest one a couple of years ago in Holland. Nothing like the Le Male I bought in the mid nineties. BTW, I know for sure that all are genuine fragrances. Checked the bottles, the codes etc.

I love the original Le Male. It's strong, has longevity and projection, is sexy, vibrant, animalistic, dirty, YES porn in a bottle!

The new reformulated Le Male is very very weak compared to its original. I can easily spray 10 sprays and still it's close to the skin. Even on clothes it won't last at all. The new Le Male is also much more synthetic, more soapy. It doesn't have the dry-down it used to have. Now it's more sugary vanilla. I miss the 'dirty porn' vibrant dry-down it used to have.

Where can I buy the old Le Male that has the positive reviews?!

Le Male is a classic. One of the first mass marketed vanilla dominated scents for men. It is very easy to review this one. It honestly, smells like porn in a bottle. It is VERY sexy. You will turn women's/girls heads with this one. Women of all ages like it. It does it's job and more. And you'll enjoy the way you smell in the process. Although if you don't like vanilla this definitely a no go. It opens up with a simple blast of synthetic mint, lavender and talc powder. The vanilla in the opening almost has like a hard to explain syrupy quality. The mint and lavender go away, and the spices (cumin and nutmeg) dirty it up to prevent it from smelling too unisex. The dry down smells like a french vanilla candle. And that's it. Very simple, but very awesome fragrance. 9/10.

Le Male is great. It's loud, whorey, sleazy, instantly recognizable, and extremely girly. It's truly one of the epochal perfumes of the 90's next to CK One. Smells like a powdery Red-Hot candy and cuts through everything else in the room. It has a sense of humor, and I can't really imagine pairing it with formal wear. Its wearers tend to be "signature scent" type people that have only one perfume. 17 years after its launch gay bars STILL all smell like it, and gay men STILL all wear it. If you'd like something similar but better since no one wears it try the delightful Ma Dame.

I bought this blind after reading so many reviews on it.

It smells stale and metallic with a hint of lemon and mint when you first spray it on. It has an odd, fresh kind of smell that I just can't seem isolate a specific note. I'll put it down as another unique scent.

** Update ** I've REALLY tried to like this stuff and just can't. I know it gets a lot of positive reviews but I've grown to find the smell very unpleasant. Not for me.

After joining this perfume reviewing website, I wanted to know how you guys felt about JPG le male, a perfume normally ignored by me and did not smell due to that ugly shaped bottle that did not appeal to me. To my surprise most of the reviews were positive and most agrees on how sexy this perfume is. So, definitely I had to try it. But once I did, it did not live up to my expectations. It's nice, I liked it, but that's it! On me it felt like a generic perfume and_CALL ME DILUSIONAL_it felt too girly to my taste with all that vanilla. I also got a slight leathery aroma that brought it back a little to the "FOR MEN" nature.

It is not bad, it's just not for me! It has amazing longevity that extend the 12 hours. Very long lasting indeed!

OK I bought this because it was rated by many as the sexiest smelling fragrance on the market a while back, I thought I would give it a try. There was a girl that I had been friends with for a while and I started wearing this, well not long after I got with her, a while later she said this smell actually made her feel horny. Well if that isn't a recommendation for a fragrance I don't know what this!! haha

Thought long and hard about getting this, but I finally got it last month.

I really enjoy this scent. It comes off as strongly sweet to me, and I love that. The lavender, mint and vanilla notes stand above the rest, and it hits me right away. As it dries I start to smell a mellow waft of cinnamon, transforming into a spicy-sweet smell. No doubt that this smell is powdery, kinda like baby powder, but i don't really mind it.

I think this scent is masculine indeed, but women can wear this and totally get away with it. Guys and girls who enjoy sweet aromas love this, my coworker instantly recognized this fragrance, saying that she loves it and she even buys it for her boyfriend. Not many people around my hometown seem to own this cologne, which is good news for me cause I can wear it as much as I want!

I don't care that people say this cologne is overworn. If you like something, you should have the freedom to wear it.

EDIT: A lot of people here seem to think it's current version is reformulated worse than it's older version. Though I don't know if this is true, I'd love to get a sample of it, if the mint note is all that much stronger as stated. If anybody knows where I could get an original Male, I'd love to hear how :)

Also, I still love this piece.

As for me this has got that barber shop feel to it,it sure has a massive cult following and sure it is a nice EDT but i feel it dint mix well with my skin & i ended giving it to a professor, i did purchase it on first application but never fell in love with it ,on the contrary i rather prefer the opening of this scent after a while it gets a little monotonous and a lil cloying for me , it surely is a well made scent and smells great but as far as im concerned id pass on this Gaultier creation but if you end up liking this creation you're very lucky as the projection and longevity are top notch on this beast.I wont miss it as i seem to smell this outside often on others

An interesting scent: it has the herbal cleanliness of lavender combined with the freshness of mint leaves, the sweetness of vanilla and a hint of spice, along with other, more subdued, notes.

As it has sort of a deodorant soap (the note of lavender) and breath freshener / peppermint candy (the notes of mint & vanilla) effect, this fragrance, for me, evokes the image of a man who puts thought into his personal hygiene and grooming.

Como descrever Le Male? Bom, tudo que sei é que o perfume entrou para o hall dos clássicos. Um sucesso mundial e um fenômeno de popularidade.
Eu o acho bastante curioso:
É romântico, mas não um romântico declarado;
É suave e gentil, mas de uma personalidade fortíssima.
Eu associo essa fragrância a um homem que possui um milhão de atributos mas que não faz questão de ostentá-los, a não ser para a pessoa que ele acha que realmente merece.
Enigmático, sedutor...Na minha humilde opinião ele é perfeito em ocasiões a dois. Jantares românticos, encontros proibidos, encontros permitidos, dia dos namorados, dia dos casados, dia dos apaixonados, beijos, amassos, enfim...
É O CHEIRO DO AMOR

The main theme is very similar to lots o other curent oriental scents for men. I find it very similar to 212 Sexy and to Jaipur, minus the cardamom. Jaipur is spicier and harsher and feels deeper to me. I do like Jaipur better, but I also like Le mâle very much. Oriental fragrances are actually my favorite amongst male scents, and I do like this theme, but its recurrence in perfumery today makes me wonder what is so so special about it and my answer really is that fashion and trend do play here the main role. Also, this theme to me, as I find it in lots of fragrances of this type, has very little to do with the natural scent of the composition as advertised. What they call cinnamon and vanilla here is most probably some synthetical compound or compounds which have nothing to do with the scent of the natural ingredients, being an artificial replacement concept of synthetical perfumery and I mean the same in relation to lots of other similar fragrances. I do find the scent interesting and actually do like it very much, but would probably not think much of it were it not made so common by trend.

Long lasting, but that is about it. Very one dimensional, too sweet. Only bought this some years ago as it was popular and wanted to see what all the hype was. To me, it was just that. Very cheap smelling, easy to overspray on this one. Never liked this much at all. My bottle is covered with about 3 inches of dust if that tells you anything!

CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME

After reading online that Le MAle has been voted to be 'VERY LONG LASTING' and the sillage being 'HEAVY'

I went to Boots and applied just two sprays on my neck and wow it was totally strong and very long lasting, I went the entire day from 10am all the way till 9pm still smelling it nice and clearly, so I went back to boots and bought a 40ML bottle, but the tester one I tried was 100ML

1 week I've had this 40ML bottle, and the fragrance isn't lasting even 1 hour, it's dying out so quickly I dont know what the hells wrong, I'm thinking have I wasted my money or something and I know they dont have EDP testers. Yet I know everyone else is saying it's very long lasting yet every time I spray, I can only smell for 1 hour max. But when I tried the tester it was strong for 11 hours.

??????

amart20@btinternet.com email me :D and explain...

it cant be because of the 40ML bottle..... can it?

This fragrance (Le Male) is in the same category as Chergui and Givenchy Pi: baby wipes.

When reviewing a fragrance, it is best to cast aside personal preference and try to rate the fragrance objectively. The cardamom, caraway, and cinnamon add depth and warmth, while the vanilla and tonka bean turn the whole thing into a delicious baked treat. I’m having a tough time picking up on the mint. The lavender adds a masculine nuance, but in the end it’s all about a baby’s rear end.

Here’s the breakdown:
Le Male: baby wipes + spices 3.5/5
Chergui: baby wipes + hay and tobacco 3/5
Pi: baby wipes + baby wipes + vanilla 2/5

ts one thing to associate scents to places and things , but to people, lets be honest its discriminatory, here"s a reality check on gender and age bias and hate, I honestly find scent associations with older younger people biased and ridiculously moronic, there i said it, "Ive seen it a lot here and i"ve had it with the bullsh.. What ,wear fruity you"ll smell young wear vetiver you smell old? i call bullsh..., Stupid perceptions and associations lead to stupid biases and prejudices and moronic people. Lets make one thing clear, without soap everyone stinks and reeks, whether your 6yo or 60yo don't wash and you"ll reek regardless of age , just because your grand mother or grand dad or older chap wore bad cocktail frags you didn't enjoy don't mean you smell like an older person if you wear it, if you wear a bad frag you'll smell like a bad frag and thats it, not a teen, nor a grand mother or whatnot. you"ve read the logic now spread the bloody word .

I absolutely love this mens cologne! I don't like most colognes, but honestly almost any guy can pull this off. The trick to it.. is to spray it on your skin and after an hour the real scent will appear & it lasts a fair amount of time. The bottle should last a long time because it only takes a few squirts. When u spray this smell on a paper or even immediately after spraying it smells disgusting! So make sure to give it a chance! Guys love it too!!

My boyfriend gave this perfume to me as he got it through his job. At first I was put off by the harsh and masculine appearance bottle. I was expecting a harsh manly smell. But now I wear it and I love it, even though it's for men. I can't resist. I actually think it smells more unisex than anything. it's just the bottle looks really manly. The scent lasts ages on skin and on clothes, now even my bed smells like "le male". The thing is I don't like the bottle, the body shape is really weird, and for a male, the backside is too big and kind of sticks out too much. the whole shape I really dislike.

This is a great cologne. A compliment getter, all the great things you like in a cologne are right here in this cologne. But...this cologne is uber popular. I can guarantee that out of 10 guys in the office, at least 3-4 of them have this in there collection. Now thats great for Le male, but for the wearer beware! I can guarantee you that every woman you encounter, will say "You smell so familiar? What is that youre wearing?" Reason being....she has dealt with a man prior to you that had this same scent. Now if you want to smell like her ex boyfriend...by all means, go and pick this up. You will have one of the most popular scents of all time in your collection, yes you will get compliments but you will smell like her ex boyfriend from the winter of 2009.

My old buddy Le Male is a little more than a thimble full away from being empty. I'll save the bottle afterwards as a reminder of where I have come from. Le Male is still a great classic buy that I strongly recommend to a beginner and the advanced fragrance head.

I'll post should I re-purchase this legendary mix for men.

My first time in Fragrantica I was surprised with some of the reviews of Le Male. Those days I used to love this fragrance. With time and trying some other perfumes and this one, I can tell now that Le Male has something synthetic I don't quite like. This doesn’t happen all the time, maybe my own chemistry is involved. Anyway, I still like it for a cold night, or an open air occasion. And yes, some girls really like this one, but for me, it's not a first date fragrance anymore. I really like the end of this one...
***
Mi primera vez en Fragrantica estaba sorprendido con algunos de los comentarios sobre Le Male. En esos días amaba esta fragancia. Con el tiempo y habiendo probado otros perfumes y este mismo, puedo decir ahora que Le Male tiene algo sintético que no termina de gustarme. Esto no ocurre siempre, quizá tenga que ver con mi propia química. De cualquier modo, aún me gusta para una noche fría o una ocasión al aire libre. Sí, a algunas chicas en realidad les gusta, pero ha dejado de ser una fragancia para primeras citas. En verdad me gusta su final...

VANILLA BOMB!!!

So whats there to say about this 1 that hasn't been said? Not Much anyway...I just had to get this Gem of a fragrance. Growing up in middle school i used my brothers Cuba gold all the time it just smelled so sweet and elegant, idk lol thats just how i pictured it at the time. A few years later after wearing Eternity and Hugo(again my brothers haha) i found out Cuba gold was a "knock off" of JPG, it had been years since i had smelled cuba gold so i figured why not give this "JPG" a try.

So i purchased a bottle, initially i was thinking "what the heck is this?". I smelled traces of cuba gold but nothing too similar. Than about an hour into it i start smelling something familiar ,i start sniffing my wrist And Wow it smelled just how i remembered cuba gold smelling like but much better...

Anyway now that i own a few more bottles this stuff smells somewhat dated it just brings back a lot of fond memories, and its no longer my favorite :( haha...Nevertheless i still LOVE the smell once it settles down after about an 1hr into it. It just starts off too strong thats my only Knock on it. But as stated this is Either a Love or hate fragrance.

Three words To describe this VANILLA, VANILLA, SEXY....Not the best Vanilla scent but its not Ever so popular for NO reason!

I'm working on my 3rd bottle and it's 25% full. I use to adore this fragrance but now that I have so many other references to choose from . . . my high opinions of Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male has receded.

Le Male is far from a terrible fragrance, but, again, I know more and have experienced other note combinations in other fragrances.

Unfortunately, I will never replace Le Male when the bottle runs dry. However, it is a good choice for any individual that's just starting to get into fragrances.

Le Male is a hate-crime! It's like Francis Kurkdijan had all the nice ingredients on hand - vanilla, lavender, sandalwood, what have you. And while mixing them, he accidentally added Chemical X and all the ingredients took shape of monsters gone berserk!

It may not be a popular opinion, but this is a disgusting and contrived concoction, which does more harm to the people around than the person wearing itself.

I better stop here!

I believe that the Festrunk Brothers would have happily doused their hairy chests and gold chains with this stuff while cruising for chicks in Fox Bar.

Honestly - this smells like the nexus between imitation vanilla extract and a can of Raid.

I think the stripes on the torso represent prison stripes, as Jean Paul Gaultier is doubtless wanted by Interpol on three continents for international nose rape.

I actually own a bottle, because there's no accounting for what someone ELSE will gift you with.

Do I want to swap or sell it? No way! Much as I would also not want to part with the wreckage of The Hindenburg if I owned that.

Ah, where would we be without this classic? I started wearing this as a much younger man, and for me it will always encapsulate joyful summer days of youthful vigour!

A year ago, I wouldn't have even thought of buying such a fragrance. I am opening up to new ideals. Le Male is something I have been pondering over getting for the last few months and finally saw it at Nordstrom rack and it was semi-affordable so I grabbed it. I immediately sprayed it on in the car and thought, this is just another versace blue jeans type fragrance, and although it has it's similarities (lavender, and vanilla), Le male breaks away from it in the drydown. This stuff is very fresh herbal, and vanilla in the drydown. It's really very pleasant and people, not just women, like it. It's a very comforting smell. The longevity is outstanding, it's still on my clothes from 24 hours ago and the sillage/projection is very good too. Overall, if you like herbal or vanilla scents, it's a must have. Could very easily be a signature for some.

We all know this is very powdery, and this was a boom when it was released and still very popular.....Which is quite odd, because LE MALE is not what you get when you spray this on. I got the biggest bottle and well, I used to spray it on my carpets , far from my nose, cuz i couldnt stand the nausea. but later, i gave it to my sister. A LOT of women dig this thing. Maybe it's just an escape from the traditional masculine scents, that kinda reminds us of our grandpas, an alternative to avoid the wood and tobacco. This is one that you will encounter sooner or later in your life, and if you go for it, I hope it suits you well, because most people smell like fake plastic flowers when they wear it.

I agree! This one has Monster projection and longevity. But i don't really like the smells...it smells like women's body lotion that you can get in every supermarket.

Maybe at that time, year 1995 (when Le Male was launched), that was rare the smells like this. But now in 2012 a lot of women's fragarance smells like this.

So..can you imagine how's horrible when you wear common scent for the long time??? Plus A+ projection??? SKIP IMO

Really the only reason why I have this bottle is it's popularity and how it looks in my collection. VERY synthetic, very powerful, and last DAYZ!!! Now, lasting long and projecting well is good if the scent is good. TOO ME, No. Why? I get 2 things mint and vanilla. Once the mint goes away on my skin the smell is OK, average, nothing mind blowing, inviting. Though, It's the mint that starts the fragrance out. The smell to me is something close to Raid Bug Spray! No joke! Girlfriend always liked it but being 5 years older and her fresh out of High school at the time I don't think 20$+ fragrances were something common for her. Just too popular. End up smelling like somebody's ex.

I don't understand the popularity at all. The sweet vanilla? Fine, but there's a very unpleasant, synthetic, plasticky note in there that makes me uncomfortable (is it the lavender, mint or combination of both?). In The Dreamer, this note calms down and sits comfortably with the whole fresh linen feel.. but in Le Male it kind of clashes with the warm sweetness the whole way through.

To the lovers... One spray, max two. I BEG YOU.

Powerful and charming scent, no doubt (I can see why women love it). Too bad it's overused and hyped. If this scent was a niche it could stand up to it's mystical and oriental feel.

I like how it smells, I just hate how common it is. I like my parfume to stand out, atleast by an inch. So I will skip buying this, for the time being.

This is probably one of the most used fragrance by men ever. You can't walk by the streets and not smell this on a man. In a packed room, people will be more likely to point out that you are wearing Le Male than other fragrances worn. Yes, it is that popular and it stands out well.

Women seem to like this and you will get compliments. Since it is so potent, it is advisable not to use more than 3 full-sprays; especially in the hot humid weather as it can get cloying. 1 spray to the chest and 1 to the neck are enough most of the time. Not really too sure about how the other flankers smell like but if you intend to get one, get the original. A must-have if you're a fragrance collector. This is also an ideal fragrance to wear in office but be mindful about the number of sprays you do as you do not want to be known as the guy-who-wears-too-much-perfume.

I love Le Male, Jean Paul Gaultier is always very creative, outgoing and Contemporary, and I think has a big influence not only in their perfumes, but also in clothing of he makes ... Le Male, is a Perfume: Fresh / Sweet and somehow is balanced to perfection combining: The sweet and sexy vanilla, The Sophisticated Lavender, the fresh note of mint, and spice notes of: Cinnamon and of Tonka bean. This is a fragrance Sexy and Young. and I heard of the girls love this perfume in the men they think it is "Sexy". I highly recommend them.
When this is applied is strongly perceived lavender, but over a few seconds the fragrance will become a more sexy as the vanilla becomes the predominant note, and the lavender top note is still perceived, also can smell the ephemeral and persistent note of mint, accompanied by the warm and specious note of cinnamon, and just after perceiving the cinnamon,  is noted the sweet and playful note of Tonka bean, and the notes of exit can vaguely perceive: neroli, rosemary, Cardamom, and a subtle woody note. In conclucion fragrance Le Male, is a sexy, longevity and lovely worth ..

There's a TON of vanilla and lavender, with a bit of spiciness from the other notes. "Strong & sweet" is definitely an apt description. When you wear it, people certainly will take notice (for good and bad), it's just so dominating.

I can't imagine what it would be like if two people would be in the same room, both wearing Le Male. :)

The advertising and the bottle gave it a very gay vibe, in my opinion, but maybe that's just me. Like others said, you certainly have to be a certain type of "le male" to be able to pull it off. Then again, who -wouldn't- love a bottle like that...and the canister it comes in.

My colleague at work uses this perfume and every time I sit next to him, I am super happy! This is such an amazing amazing perfume in every single way :) Vanilla is the strongest scent, but it is more spicy and gives it a perfect touch of spice and powdery effect. Strangely, I seem to want it for myself :) If the women's version is anything like this (I'm yet to try it), I'm definitely buying it! It is perfect for men between 20-35 age group... <3 <3 <3 it!

This is my second review of JPG “Le Male” which I am writing as this fragrance deserves another comment after I have actually bought the stuff. As previously stated, my last experience with this was back in 1999. I stayed away from it all this time as I felt that the memories of that era were already established in my perfume memory bank and I could not re visit it. Man I was so wrong!

Since my entrance into the world of perfumery two months ago I have tested dozens of the “main stream” men’s perfumes and I have acquired a nice little wardrobe with some of my favourites. I am passionate about my little hobby and I try to be objective in my reviews. I will keep this short and sweet.

Out of every men’s fragrance on the shelves, in my opinion this is by far the BEST in terms of scent, projection, sillage and longevity. I don’t care how “synthetic” it is, how overly “popular” it is, I simply have to have a bottle in my wardrobe to behold magnificence.

I sometimes crave a bolshie fragrance, one that can make a statement, one that I can know with confidence will remain on my skin for at least ten hours, a perfume that will elicit a positive reaction. Le Male delivers superbly in all these avenues.

JPG “Le Male” is in my opinion the best men’s perfume in its price range and its genre. I have only one word to fully describe it and that is; ORGASMIC!

UPDATE:

After three months I have something to add. This is NOT the same as the one that was released in 1995. If you are familiar with Le Male when it first came out, you will agree that this is a little watered down.

Smells like a vanilla/almond pastry. Kind of linear but of niche quality smell. I like this scent alot since there is not many similar scents to this that I know of in the mens section. I could see someone fashionable wear this, I could also see a woman pull this off since it could EASILY been marketed to women. Girls love this shit too!

Hola a todos los FraganticaFans Hispanos! :)
Bien para ser sincero el perfumes uno de mis favoritos y creo que me identifico con el. Al principio cuando lo aplicas se percibe un fuerte olor a Menta & Lavanda pero al paso de unos minutos la fragancia se transforma en un aroma predominante a canela con una salida dulce de vainilla y aun conservando la vaga y ligera esencia herbal; Es un buen perfume con aroma Joven, Aventurero pero a la vez Misterioso y elegante y al parecer por lo que eh oido a las chicas les facina esta fragancia asi que se los recomiendo ampiamente. El perfume tiene una fragancia duradera y exquisita pero me gustaria que se hicieran un poco mas discretas la esencias de Menta y Lavanda y que se resaltara un poco mas el grano de Tonka y la flor de Naranja ya que me pareceria que contrastaria de maravilla con la Vainilla (Claro conservando las esencias herbales

A woman's perspective is that Le Male is risky. Your chemistry has to be just right, as other reviewers have implied. To my nose, what presents a potential problem has something to do with the lavendar, bergamot, caraway and mint notes clashing with the cardamom. I can't quite figure out which, but one of them should probably go.
Kudos to the men for whom it creates magic, and know you are special.

Okay fragrance. It's a fragrance that only certain people would wear for special occasions. It's not a scent for me though. I do see others guys wearing this scent. It's somewhat "Metro" to me, or unisex type of scent. Can't complain when many women like it.
Definitely a sensual fragrance that screams out at people, so this is a scent that will project and get you noticed

The only reason i dont buy this fragrance anymore its because everybody wears it, even though i do understand why. Such a beautiful scent!!! I did enjoy it though when it first came out. That was the time for it. Before all the crazy hype. 9/10.

I don't feel this scent at all. It does last long but I do not like it one bit. It reminds me of a lighter version of Versace Dreamer which intensely dislike too. This is not for me. Most people like it but I don't and that does not make it a bad scent.

The bottle says that it's an edt!!!well,to be quite honest it can compete with any edp in the market.I am surprised by its tenacity.It goes on and on.Is it unique??A big NO,but it is a pleasant smelling scent and should be worn sparingly because it is a beast.Some scents behave in a very shy manner,hiding in the background and making its presence felt now and then.Some scents behave like a naughty guy trying to grab attention.they are very extrovert and in this context Le Male is naughty and extrovert.It demands attention.It was made solely for the purpose of attracting the ladies coz generally ladies like sweet scents and Le Male successfully does it.The scent is not complicated and relies on simplicity with a prominent mint note and vanilla all the way.You can detect spices but it is in the background behaving like a shy child fearing the presence of vanilla because the vanilla overpowers everyone.
Do I like it...Yes and no because my mind says there are many scents similar to this one but my heart says that no one can beat the tenacity and attractiveness associated with this scent.
People will always ask what are you wearing but its popularity has been diluted by many cheap similar smelling scents,none the less it is a survivor and it has carved the way for other sweet smelling scents.
Lastly,the best occasion to wear this is when you are in a casual atmosphere surrounded by people because it grabs attention so beware if you wear it in the office.
Final rating-6/10 because of its tenacity and pleasant smelling scent.Not unique but good.It just made the cut from being average.

A total turn-off when a guy uses this fragrance. I think even for women this scent would be way to sweet. Definitely a very "non-male" scent. I can't stand it.

There's a reason Le Male has the status that it does. This is mature and very captivating--it has a mysterious sex appeal. Awesome union of lavender, cardamom and mint, rounded with a cast of vanilla, a hint of cinnamon, and sandalwood. A classic indeed, and in my opinion, a much better classic than colognes like Acqua di Gio or CK Eternity. Much more masculine.

Opens with lavender, mint and vanilla and dries down to a sweeter, woodier accord. One to two sprays is good enough, it can get overpowering if overdone; you don't want to be one of /those/ guys.

Longevity is pretty good and does project. Every time I go to the store I head for this one just to get that whiff. The bottle is killer marketing, leave it to JPG to make a bottle like that. There are a few fragrances like it that have come both before and after it but they never quite compare. The only true successor to Le Male is 1 Million by Paco Robanne.

I have loved Le Male since it came out. If I could wear it I would but it doesn't suit my chemistry. My husband has it and it smells gorgeous on him, vanilla, lavender, mint, cinnamon and the rest. After awhile it's a soft deep smell, he smells soooo gooood.

I can't understand it...I have read reviews that says...I can't wear it because so many others doo...well if that is the case we can't wear any perfume at all.
Wear it if you like it, and after all it doesn't smell exactly the same on everyone...

This is my opinion.

This stuff is so horrible it kills all the oxygen in a room cant breathe when someone use this.
It´s ok to wear a scent for yourself but when it´s taking over the neighborhood it´s to much.
To powerful, and whats the point of wearing the same perfume as everybody els.

This scent is iconic in my opinion. I remember when it first got my attention in 1999 when I found it absolutely intoxicating. It's very unique and very well constructed but it's too darn popular for me to keep on hand. If this were more of a niche market scent I would still be wearing it. Longevity is great, scent is out of this world, trouble is everyone knows. If you haven't been down this road you really should join the rest of he crowd, they clearly know a good thing when they smell one!

My boyfriend wears this cologne and it's always smelled good on him, I find I can't stop smelling him when he wears this lol I don't know why some feel this is too feminine to be a male scent, but I disagree. Granted it is on the sweeter side, but I feel this is a man's scent regardless. Yay, I get to see him tomorrow, and I know he'll be wearing this :)

I wanted to try it because I was told it could easily be unisex. Wow, I was shocked how sweet it was. I could barely smell the top notes of lavender and bergamot which disappear in minutes and you are left with very sweet vanilla sandalwood scent with just a hint of masculinity (I assume from cedarwood).
its definitely not a typical men’s cologne. I am sure some guys can get away with it, but I don’t think I would like it on the guy since I prefer more masculine, fresh or woodsy scents on men.
Incidentally, I had two women at work smell it and both thought it was women’s perfume. I also had my DH sniff my wrist and asked him if this smelled like men’s cologne. He gave me a puzzled look and said “not at all”. I told him it was Le Male and he said it was way too sweet for a guy to wear.
I guess it amounts to personal preference so try before you buy it. I would love to get myself a bottle and lasting power is very good on this one. One small spray on my hand lasted for at least 4 hours and my coworker said she could smell it as I walked by. So word of caution-this is not a scent you want to overspray because you will suffocate everyone around.

At first I didn't like this but grew to love it in my 20s. It served me well for a while. Now my mid-30s nose doesn't appreciate it anywhere near as much.
It is quite sweet, verges on too sweet and too powdery but settles and becomes a little more masculine. In my eyes this is NOT a classic and NOT the "lady-killer" others claim - many hate it. It seems both women and men either really like or really dislike this one.

As I get older and more into fragrances I am not using this very often and am less and less likely to reach for this ahead of other scents. It seems too young and too sweet now. Some of the other scents I had at that time have stood the test of time and stayed firm favourites but I'm not sure I'll ever finish my current bottle of Le Male.

If you like the smell it is quite good value - a bottle will last ages - you don't need to use much at all. Quite potent and if over-sprayed (any more than 2 SPRAYS MAXIMUM) it can be very cloying and unpleasant, verging on unbearable.

This is one of the best fragrances for longevity and projection I have found. With 2 sprays it is strong on my skin for 12+ hours and still detectable 20+ hours after application. Very strong projection early on for 6-8 hours and still projects quite strongly for 10-12 hours or more.

If you don't like strong, sweet or powdery scents, or lavender or vanilla then steer clear of this one. Otherwise it is worth a test - especially if you struggle to find something that lasts on your skin.

I think my days of using JPG Le Male are now pretty much over - it was nice while it lasted.

I have a love hate relationship with this cologne. It reminds me of an acquaintance who is no longer in my life from days when I partied hard until the sun rose - 1999. When I first smelled it back then I thought it was "heavenly".

To many Le Male may be too strong and overbearing, however it has one of the best scents, sillage and longevity I can possibly imagine in any men’s perfume. It is not no 15 on the USA top 100 best seller list for nothing and seems to have survived a solid 17 years on shelves here in South Africa.

If you enjoy fragrance in the Oriental Fougere genre, there is a good chance you may enjoy this can. However a test may also scare you with thoughts of, “Wow, too much in my face!”

I hate to compare, but personally, Caroline Herrera 212 Sexy is almost a clone of Le Male, but in an awesome, softer, citrus, more refined, modern way. So you can see the respect I have for Le Male. The scent itself is divine.

If the reviews on Fragrantica appeal to you, and you are toying with the idea of buying the turquoise man with the cut off arms in the silver can then go for it. But be cautioned; wear sparingly, as you may get mixed reactions at the office. I feel this is perfectly suited for a wild party or a night club.

In terms of LONGEVITY, this is right on top. In my never ending quest for a perfume with decent longevity I would buy it for this one reason. If you ever wanted to make a BIG perfume statement, Le Male is your stuff.

Plus, in fact it can never be exactly the same on everyone.

So, it will still unique to you! Just give it a try!

Une eau que j'adore, d'année en année. Très originale à sa sortie, même si elle s'appuyait sur ce que l'on pouvait sentir dans une échoppe de barbier... Le coup de génie fut l'association de la menthe et de la vanille à la lavande, pour un départ frais et un fond doux et addictif...Trop prisé en France pendant quelques temps, on s'en lassait...Maintenant, Le Mâle redevient portable, avec l'aura du classique qui fut à l'avant-garde, presque polarisant.
Bravo, parce que Le Mâle a ouvert de nouvelles voies à la parfumerie, même s'il fut un peu victime de son succés, et parce qu'il sent délicieusement bon, et c'est finalement tout ce qu'on lui demande. 10 /10, même si plus que pour n'importe quelle autre eau, cette note est déraisonnable.

I don't like this fragrance at all!
Start with huge blast of synthetic vanilla and the worst note in the world of fragrances, LAVENDER!
I hate lavender and lavender based fragrances.
This fragrance give me cleaner vibe!
We have a glass cleaner in our house that smell exactly like this fragrance!
Unfortunately the lavender linger through the whole fragrance life on your skin and I can't stand it!
I bought this fragrance blind and that was a big mistake!
Great longevity but average projection on my skin.
Completely waste of money!
من به هیچ وجه از این عطر خوشم نمیاد
در ابتدا بوی قوی وانیل به اضافه بدترین رایحه در دنیای عطر و ادکلن یعنی لاوندر میده
من از لاوندر متنفرم و تو این عطر به مقدار زیادی وجود داره که بوی مواد شوینده شیمیایی رو برای من تداعی میکنه
ما یه مایع شیشه پاک کن تو خونه داریم که دقیقا بوی این عطرُ میده. وقتی این عطرُ بدون تست خریدم و روی دستم اسپری کردم، اولین چیزی که به ذهنم رسید بوی شیشه پاک کن و دترجنت بود و این برام غیر قابل تحمله
ماندگاری خیلی خوب و پخش بوی متوسطی داره
دور ریختن پول به معنای واقعی از نظر من

Oh my God...I find this fragrance absolutely DELICIOUS!!! It also has a very nice and appealing (and also sexy) dry down, so it is perfect for the clubs and dates, especially in the night. It's more of a winter smell, but it can also be worn in the summer, at night. The projection, sillage and longetivity are great on this one, even on my skin (where many other fragrances fade after a couple of hours).This gragrance is in my top 3 - after Armani Code and before 212 Sexy Men. 10/10

Seriously? This is the lady killer that everyone talks about? Maybe they meant it literally then...
Jesus Christ, this scent is the strangest thing I ever smelled. Sure it was pretty original at the time of its launch, but in a bad way. I mean, it's like they've thrown the most synthetic notes of vanilla and mint and mixed them together with other ultra synthetic herbaceous notes. A mess, really.
It has killer projection and killer sillage. The scent is killer too, if you know what I mean.
If this synthetic mess is a 'sexual appeal' to the ladies, then maybe that's a very good sign that I'm perhaps way too masculine to even be neutral about this one.

In a word, Le Male is repulsive.

Le Male, in 2004 when I first smelt it on an old mate, was the intoxicating smell of man. It wreaked of confidence and had me wishing I could smell that fantastic!
It's been described by my uncle as a 'gay smell', while my gay brother described it as a '40yo man' smell. Where's the line? I can see the connection on both sides, but I think of it as a more 'vintage for the youth' kind of smell, while it is also, without a doubt, a French smell.
I did find, when I owned it, that the syntheticity increases as production continues, as an evident profit bearing market pushes Le Male into the discounted shelves for the original target crowd to stock up on.
In any case, it's a great smell for men in general, and when applied subtly more often throughout the day, it does the exact justice it's known for.

Hy. I just tried yesterday, one spray on my wrist. I was expecting something sweet. Everybody keep saying how fabulous this scent is. But I think is just not working on my skin. I was only getting some very unpleasant scent. I don't know much about perfumes but this whasent sweet at all. Probably my skin is problem, but for me this scent is a no.

I don't get when people say "everybody is wearing it, so this is bad, so I don't like it, bla bla bla...".
When a designer create a fragrance, he expects that fragrance become POPULAR and SELL.
I really don't care how many people are wearing it.
If you want something "exclusive", go to a very obscure niche brand.

Le Male is AMAZING. Period.

Longevity, projection and silage is great. Smells very good and women love this smell...great clubbing fragrance.

The bad: if you do go out, expect someone else wearing this.

The good: with that scent with longevity and projection the price is great but then again that is also the reason why so many ppl wear this.

A fabulous creation for a fashion house that proved a formal education and background in fashion was not necessary to be accepted into the Parisian fashion elite. Jean Paul Gaultier endured a great deal of class chastisement on his ascent to fame in couture haut Paris for his tendency to lean heavily on shock value and marketing rather than substance. Gaultier worked his way up through a quick and voracious consumption of his influences, borrowing fantastically from a wide array of ideas and molding them into his own unique and profound vision that in its earliest days had a very timely and unique vision.
Le Male and the female equivalent that preceded it, Classique were personifications of his vision when Gaultier was still at the top of his game and showed initiative for creativity beyond simply supporting his cash cows with endless flankers lacking sincere desire to push any envelopes. The elements ultimately came together perfectly in Le Male, revitalizing the French fashion elite with a fresh dose of working-class ideas and new blood looking to democratize and expand the clientele base beyond just the higher income target audience.
Jean Paul Gaultier ultimately succeeded because it made clear a new direction in French fashion houses that had already been done in the USA and UK, targeting a broader base beyond the elite and upper middle-class, searching to bring in the middle and lower middle class, a market rarely given such attention in France before the 1990's.
Le Male is his one shining moment in the realm of masculine fragrances; owing a great deal to its packaging ingenuity. Heavily influenced by the commercial art of Andy Warhol, Gaultier chose to package his male torso in a tin can, a not so subtle tribute to Warhol's famous Campbell's Soup tin labels.
The juice itself is striking in its uniqueness at the time of release. Signing up Francis Kurkdijan was a stroke of brilliance and Kurkdijan did not let him down on either of his fist two groundbreaking releases for Gaultier; Classique et Le Male.
Le Male daringly attempts to balance vanilla, lavender, cinnamon, mint, amber and cardamom into a fragrance that doesn't smell overcrowded or overly ambitious and does it with a tremendous technical skill. Kurkdijan manages to find a striking balance throughout, never allowing the rather synthetic notes to come together as such, instead emitting a certain subdued loudness that is both daring and yet also somewhat reserved. The loudness and brashness of Le Male is more implied in the packaging than the juice, which is actually a powerhouse indebted greatly to the 1980's.
A blast of lavender, bergamot, cardamom, mint and artemisia kicks off Le Male and is actually quite subtle and well balanced. There is none of the shock and bravado implied by some of the reviewers. This is far more standard and technically balanced than most people would like to give it credit for.
Around the five minute mark the cinnamon starts to assert itself but is never overpowering. The orange blossom and caraway are both evident, but more to take a bit of the weight away from the strong natural tendencies of the cinnamon to dominate. Kurkdijan manages to find a tremendous balance, paving the way for the vanilla to find accord with cinnamon and lavender and dirtied up just enough by the cardamom and amber to give the impression of being somewhat natural despite the heavy synthetic implications of Le Male.
Masterfully constructed, a truly magnificent creation that is wonderful in fall, winter and spring and though not refined in the classic sense, has already achieved modern classic stature and has become rather timeless because of its well balanced nature and lack of floral pomp. This is neither overtly masculine nor feminine leaning, it achieves a wonderful universality so rarely accomplished in fragrance.
Longevity is outstanding, 10-12 hours is standard and 18 hours in colder weather is not unheard of. Projection is tremendous well into the seventh hour before things start to recede a bit, but Le Male manages to hang on to the skin better than most scents.
Becomes loud when the vanilla merges with the top and middle and this is what many object to, as the vanilla is certainly synthetic. Yet despite this it still manages to be very far from cloying in any respect.
If you are looking for a dirtier and more ambery version of this on a budget, I would suggest Cubano Gold by Victory International as an accompanying scent when you would prefer to best enjoy your Le Male in moderation, with a bit of variety but the same basic essence.
Overrated? Shockingly no. Despite its tremendous success, this is a wonderful commercial product that managed to find the perfect balance between packaging, marketing, quality and bravado.

I don't want to antagonize its admirers (as i am going to say a few negative things about it . . lol), so i'm going to try and make my review as brief as possible.

Le Male is TOO(extremely and odiously) sweet and synthetic for my taste. Its cloyingness is tormenting (in the same league as Joop! Homme)and its insane omnipresence bores me even more. This scent is not for me! I've tried liking it(i really have) but my persistence has yielded no positive outcome.

However, for those who might like this scent, let me say that both its Longevity and sillage are 10+/10 (which is why i used the word 'tormenting' to describe its cloyingness cos it just stays and stays). Don't ever buy this blind! You have been warned!

A lot of thumbs-downs headin my way i know (But it's just my honest opinion). No hard feelings i hope.

There was a time and countless places when this was THE scent I wore. It was so complimented - dressed up or down. However, as my tastes have refined over the years, I find that JPG Le Male is not as "amazing" as I remember it to be. I have found the synthetic qualities and bombastic opening to be less desired and the heavy vanilla on the base can be a touch strong (nearly cloying). However, this doesn't mean I won't wear it. I definitely will, but after years of discovering scents (and, yes, imitation is the best form of flattery), I find myself liking Jacomo de Jacomo Rouge for casual wear (which has nice spiciness mixed with the sweetness) and TL Pour Lui by Ted Lapidus (a beautiful vanilla-tinged aromatic scent with great mint & orange blossom and well-integrated wood, created by Maurice Roucel) to be superior to Le Male in distinct ways. I still have a strong affinity and affection for this scent and always will. It is part of my life and my olfactory memories. I bought a bottle in Paris in fact just for the romantic notion of doing so. To this day, I still receive compliments and although so many people went through wearing it, this fragrance has become a modern classic (I graduated college in 1995). A lot of people recognize it, but that doesn't mean it is not a very good scent. Personally, it lifts my spirits and creates a sensual atmosphere. A bottle of sexy juice that has (and will) stand the test of time although there are alternatives that I love next to it and reach for more consistently. My lust for this scent is gone, but I still give it a solid 7+/10 and recognize its place in the history of male fragrance. Undeniably, it was a marquis scent of my early to late 20's.

**Update** - a few recent wearings of a great, perfect condition, authentic bottle of Le Male layered with the brilliant After Shave lotion that comes in the light blue glass and is a splash, I have to say that I was brought back. It wears lighter and more airy with the lotion. Lighter application of EdT, but still a full-wearing - but the notes just waft beautifully. I actually even enjoy refreshing with just the A/S lotion in a decanted atomizer. It is very aromatic, mostly the fresh top and heart notes with a lighter sweetness - beautiful. I also have worn the excellent After Shave balm and found it to be one of the best true-to-scent A/S balms one can get in relation to the EdT/fragrance itself - layers perfectly.

For nostalgic sake, and because I got a lot of compliments (surprisingly)...this has like an old-flame from college that you kept in touch with and one day realize that you both grew up and moved on in life, but still have a wonderful connection! Updated score - 8+/10! We still have that "spark". Cheers.

This is the ultimate male fragrance. It is loved by all genders and ages. When I had it I got compliments from girls, boy and even... my mum.

If you buy this fragrance savour it and DO NOT over apply as you will regret it. I stuck to four sprays and found that to be ideal.

The smells will last a long time no matter where you spray it.

This would be ideal for a first date as it'll show you are sophisticated, take pride in your grooming and have excellent taste.

I cannot big this up enough!! GO BUY IT!!

A very nice synthetic vanilla fragrance but waaaaay too common. I know so many people who wear Le Male. Sometimes when I wear this, I will get a whiff, and ask myself, "Is that me, or the guy who just walked by?" I have a 2.5 oz bottle, but when it's gone, I won't buy it again.

the downside is that u might catch a cold actually, because dozen of guys in one place would probally wear it.

No joke buddy, this will add some extra beauty and sensuality to u; and man oh man...if u meet a girl who never got that scent before, that's it... 50% of the work is done!!!...lool

I remember as kid in junior high I loved Jovan Sex Appeal and wore it proudly. I've come a long way since then but if something is truly worthy of having Sex Appeal on the label this is it. I've had women look at me like I was literally something good to eat lol. It leaves a wake behind that few can match, a pure come hither quality that demands immediate attention. Simply marvelous!

This is a cinnamon/vanilla cookie with some fresh mint added.
It is a popular scent. Many guys wears it. And many females loves it. I do see why, even though I think it is a bit overrated.
This is strong and potent stuff, that will last all day/night.
The scent goes pretty well with cigarette smoke or coffee. That will make it smell like a bastogne cookie.

Top notes of mint, mandarin orange, and lavender followed by what strikes me as a "clean linen" middle. Once dry this one is only powdery vanilla. A nice combination, but it tends to disappear on me rather quickly leaving only the faintest of vanilla. Once the top notes fade, Le Male is unremarkable. Not the best match for my chemistry.

Do yourself a favor and spray Le Male on one hand and Rochas Man (or Body Kouros) on the other. In comparison, Le Male smells like synthetic burnt sugar.

You have the options of Body Kouros and Rochas Man for other gourmands. Not only are they cheaper, but they exceed the quality that Le Male lacks.

A lavender bomb for sure. I love it at around the 4 hour mark to the end of it's longevity, which is about 14-16 hours on my skin. So if you going on a date in the winter time, shower/shit/shave in the morning, apply Le Male above your twig 'n berries, your chest and one on the neck, and by 6pm when your date starts you should be smelling like vanilla candy. The women love licking my chest and neck as we're getting going...it's amazing stuff.

First, it smells different from most of the perfume for men out there.
Second, the projection and the lasting power gonna blow your mind away.
Third, the scent is nice. I dont really love it, but I bought this because it almost feel like a challenge for me, to wear this perfume or let it wear me.

Le Male is a staple in the world of perfume because it was very new then and set a new trend in male fragrances. Lavender and vanillic amber was not common! I found it very new, both fresh and warm, sensual and interesting compared to classic menscent.
JPG had a good intuition but he pushed too much on gaytype ads, the kind with muscle pumped sailors, quite boring! I bet that at that moment in time gay men were more conscious about fashion and JPG and I always thought that gay men are much more adventuros and they dare to try novelties, not caring about what could be considered too strange or feminine in the crowd. That's a plus. Le Male was not bad as feminine scent either. It was new, strong and women liked it a lot on their men! Anyway it then became so popular and so widespread and very common. Straight men were not scared anymore, instead they began to wear it constantly. I could smell it everywhere. Not a good thing. One of my ex only wore this one and it actually fitted his sexy attitude very well :-)
Now I think it is surpassed and a bit boring, because you can always tell when a man were Le Male or probably of its copycats. Not exciting anymore, no mistery.
All in all Le Male is not an elegant scent for gentlemen. Nothing to do with old evergreen Guerlains or Dior or even a good Acqua di Parma cologne.
It stays as a once-it-was-different scent, still pleasant somehow, but nothing spectacular.
Maybe it was never spectacular in itself. It smells very synthetical now and the neverending story of flankers destroyed its reputation.
Good as an example of revolutionary concept of men fragrance in a supertacky bottle. I wouldn't like to have it around now.

La Male is a very good fragrance. The scent of lavender is very velle balance by the scent of alanced and vanilla.

Probably the best fragrance for men from the JPG.

I love this. I was going to get it for my boyfriend for Christmas, but I think perhaps it is just TOO popular and too much of an obvious choice.

I can see why it's so popular though.

I also suspect my boyfriend would find the bottle "gay." *rolls eyes*

I sprayed some on my wrist today. At first, it was like lemon, and I got a strong smell of cedarwood. Now that it has settled it's lovely and soapy, with something that reminds me of burnt rubber. Sounds weird, but smells great.

Its 1995-I rushed to the mens fragrance counter to sample this blue wonder. Yes, it is clean, fresh and sweet. It summed up the decade and beyond for mens launches. Yes, it defined a generation. No, I never bought a bottle. It was too expensive and there was so much more going on at the time that I had to pass it up.

Every time I sniff it, I think of Madonna...

A very strong spicy scent, projects and lasts like a beast, The Vanilla & Cinnamon is very present and blend in well with the lavender & mint as well as the other ingredients. for me the Frag is perfect for a club or maybe going out, nothing else. 9/10

Totally clean...

It's opening with lavander and mint. Other top notes are less obvious but adds a little bit sweetish.

Heart notes cinnamon and orange blossom, does not take too long time. Top and middle notes feels clean.

After a period of time, vanilla replaces the heart notes. It's so natural and delicious. Of course, Le Male is a full vanilla perfume. Also can be felt of woody notes in the background.

The only bad side, it's very popular. It will not be special for you...

I loved this one, but now i hate the fact every guy wears it these days and this scent leaves a big trail by its sillage...
I will get it again in like 10-20 yrs when many people moved on to another collection of fragrances so this little boy will be special again.
Together with Diors Fahrenheit this one has a good mixture of spicey oddness in a good way!

When I first smelled this fragrance I liked the smell. It was very different and new. Then EVERYOINE started wearing it and I grew tired of it. Now all i saw was highschool kids wearing it and I am close to my 30's so I didnt care for it as much anymore and it was getting played out and I always tend to seek the unusual, different and hignend fragrances. I once was hanging out with friends and one of their friends being an older guy smelled very nice and I asked him what is that your wearing? He told me JPG and anymore I was taken a back. It smelled good on him and thought twice about knocking it down completely. And for that guy saying that he hates it, he is entitles to his opinion but doesnt have to be a baby about dt and replying to everyone who defends the cologne. If he so hates the bulge and bottles design, maybe he should question his man hood or sexuality. I bet gays don't make a big deal of the bottle being a mans body. The colognes scent and the purpose of the art direction of the bottle is supposed to catch attention,d represent masculinity and its ability to seduce women. Vanilla mixing to well with the other notes possibly being responsible. I believe that a guy with some problem of anything male erotica or makes a big deal about it is a guy who is in the closet trying to prove he is opposed of gays with machismo.

Please my friends, DON'T FEED THE TROLL!. Le Male maybe isn't in the same "classy or sofisticated" category as Creed or Lutens or Tom Ford fragrances, but hey!, it works perfectly. That "cheap" label that a lot of reviewers talk about maybe comes because a lot of fragrance brands try to copy the same structure of this scent, waiting to get the same selling rankings. So anyone you ask about the opinion on Le Male maybe smelled a lot of knock-offs (cuba gold, perry ellis 360 white, and so on) so now they are saturated with those "lavender-vanilla" combos. But Le Male always will be the first, the groundbreaking, the classic. Once I heard the quote "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery".

@himank09 I respect your opinion, but i tend to disagree with one thing you have said. Le male IS sophisticated and full of class. Its less versatile so it kinda tells you it has class. It projects and lasts longer then burberry london. Sure le male is mostly vanilla, but hey, if this cologne is one of the most complimented in the world, i wouldn't be complaining right? and about the bottle. You haven't seen anything like it. It chisels out the male bottle. What would you prefer? a rectangular bottle with a picture of a mans chest? i wouldn't think so.

I really like this - on myself.

This is the only men's cologne that I as a woman have ever felt comfortable wearing. I had an intense lavender period last year, and this is one of the best lavender perfumes out there.

That being said, I do like it on some men too. It is, however, very sweet and can be a bit cloying.

I was leaving Rome the same day this was out, so I decided to give it a try. When I arrived in Athens this perfume was a complete stranger so I can safely say I was the first Greek to actually wear it in Greece (not that this makes me any prouder but you'll see my point)
The same night I found myself (can't remember how) at the offices of a very big magazine of the time, chatting with the director, editors e.t.c. about contemporary events and the future of the magazine. Actually, I was there with a friend.
The impact this perfume created that night was beyond words! For the next days, wherever I was, I had people talking to me about my perfume. It was THAT good (and still is) and THAT original!
I believe M. Kurkdjian has created a masterpiece and that JPGaultier really owes this man MORE than a lot!
Anyway, nowadays it is so popular that it doesn't make much sense to wear it. It is certain someone else next to you will wear it anyway!
Lastly, I can't imagine how many noses must have felt (only) a little bit jealous of this young man's creation.

بوی قوی استخطوس در این عطر، هاله ای با دوام از رایحهء طبیعت دور شما ایجاد میکنه که به این راحتی ها نمیتونین ازش خلاص بشین!
در مقایسه با پورآنوم (که اون هم بر اساس عطر استخطوس درست شده) این عطر وحشی تر و قوی تره
دوام و پخش بوی نسبتا بالایی داره

Le Male is the great conundrum - you buy it because you tried a sample/tester and loved the mint/lavender powdered scent, then you bring it home and use up most of the bottle before you finally realize that half the people you pass on the street smell exactly like you.

JPG tries, year after year, to create variants on the same thing, but you just can't beat the original. Synthetic? Yes, but it's so out there that it still catches the attention of others, regardless of its overuse.

I didn't even consider wearing this until I was in my early 20's. If you're in high school, I wouldn't suggest wearing this unless you feel you're confident enough to pull it off. It screams "mature and complicated". You WILL be the center of attention when you wear this - the sillage and longevity is massive, no matter what skin its applied to.

Le Male is the type of the cologne that you would buy just to say you have it - use it as a backup in the fall and winter for variety, but never rely on it as a signature scent (and never apply it liberally - my boss once commented that I smelled like I "bathed in a tub of mint soap"). It's ridiculously oversaturated in today's culture, and I can't see anyone pulling this off in a highly-populated urban setting.

"Le Male" de Jean Paul Gaultier is really common nowadays.
In fact, chances are that, like me, when you will first smell it, the fragrance wouldn't be a total stranger to you, even if you're not a fragrance fanatic.

Aside from that, "Le Male" is a very gentle fragrance.
Its main idea is to combine the freshness of lavander and minth with the sweetness of vanilla.

In the end what you have is a really soft and attracting scent.
Not masculine nor imposing enough to be worn by businessmen and/or 40+ men, but for everything else, "Le Male" de Jean Paul Gaultier is a recommandation for winter time.

Masterpiece !
This one is such a great fragrance : it opened the path to soft male fragrances, way more pleasant than sharp fougeres or loud woody ones.
And "Le Mâle" is and will always remain such beautiful, uncommon creation.

The only downside is that, like all very popular fragrances, a lot of people wear it, most of the time in a wrong way, giving a bad image to the perfume .... :-/

Once, a long time ago, I found myself in a men's restroom. I can't remember why. Maybe out of curiosity? Anyhow, I remember the peculiar and overwhelming minty smell of the deodorizing "cake" in the bottom of the urinal. To me, this fragrance smells just like that: scented urinal cake. Even my fiance agreed with me!

Obviously, though, neither of us have the chemistry to pull this scent off, so I am positive that it smells different (and much better) on the right person!

do not understand how much people talk about this perfume is very striking in the beginning ... (more precisely in the first 30 minutes) is an intoxicating smell as well, because the notes of mint, but what you have then is a perfume with an average projection and excellent fixation (about 8, maybe 9 hours on my skin) getting very close to the skin with a smell very good.
it is nonetheless an interesting scent, who am I to speak ill of him, but in my collection I have other much better and more unique ...

Le Male is the King of the comments made by everyone who meets who is using it.
Everyone loves this scent, from children to the elderly, men or women.
At the level of its development is perfect.
It may be a little criticism because many people use this perfume, but this comment is unfair and selfish, because everyone has the right to use, and if I like the perfume I can not forbid other people like it or not buy it.

Everything is perfect in this perfume, since the creator, the brand, the ads.

I give my congratulations to everyone who is involved in the process of creating something so powerful, universal and perfect as Le Male.

Le Male forever.

I really love this scent so much, but that's the problem, everyone seems to love it, if you want to feel unique you can't wear this one, everyone knows you're wearing JPG Le Male.

Perfume for me needs to bring out a special atmosphere, i like it to be a little sinister, dark and heavy, and this one sure is, but i won't wear it anymore, it got too commercial, it's a personal thing, cause there's really nothing wrong with the scent.

10/10 for the scent, longevity and sillage.

First of all no hard feelings and negativity for the lovers of this high profile perfume. Actually this is one of the perfumes which i don't like at all, it doesn't necessarily mean that those who love it are on the wrong side but simply it is perhaps just not for me and not of my taste. Because there always remain a question of personal choice and preference and one cannot blame those who use it. Anyhow, coming towards the fragrance it is similar to joop homme and CH 212 sexy man, but yes Le male is the pioneer among them. The best part is its incredible projection and longevity. The bad things: it is too much sweet and soft just like a baby powder or a smell of female cosmetics. It can relatively smell good on females as compare to men.
Bottle is phenomenal and a hallmark of JPG
I give it 7 out of 10 for its unbelievable popularity.

I really adore this scent, as my boyfriend of 6 years was wearing this when we met, and still uses it regularly :-)
That said, he doesn't douse himself in it, he just uses a spray or two- too much is too much!!!
It really reminds me of his best qualities-sensual, strong, calm, relaxed, a little sweet but not overly brash or macho. I must say i do love a musky vanilla scent and this hits all the right notes on my man :-)
I have to agree with others in that this could be considered a unisex fragrance, but I personally would not go so far as to wear it myself!!!

It's a 'panty dropper'. Believe me men, buy this!

Do you remember the scent that started it all?

For me it was Le Male. When I was 14 my older brother came home smelling of something wonderful, something new, and something so outside of what I had ever experienced... incomprehensible to my nose.

Le Male was his new prized possession and I wasn’t allowed to touch! However, one night, after he had left the house, I opened his cabinet and reached for the forbidden bottle. I spent the next five minutes writhing around the floor, my eyes closed, one hand clutching the bottle and the other glued to my nose. So strong was my intoxication that I hadn’t noticed my brothers return. Normally my brother wasn’t shy to give me a taste of his boot, but the sight of me squirming around on the floor.... well I think it slightly unnerved him.

Now that I’m older I don’t have to sneak around smelling fragrances anymore (although, the staff at some department stores can make you behave that way). But every time a spray Le Male; that strange minty vanilla smell evokes memories of a time so different.

I'm female and I have to say I LOVE, LOVE this scent! I couldn't figure out what was so delicious about it initially, however, I discovered it's the vanilla undertones. I have samples that I use in the privacy of my home haha, because as I've been told, I smell too much like a man to wear in public! which is really a shame. It smells heavenly! Unfortunately JPG doesn't have an equivalent scent for women. On a man??? Oh yum!! Would definitely put some naughty thoughts in my head if I met a man wearing this! :)

With Le Male you get a lot of lavender, gallons of vanilla, tons of spices, and a heeping B-52-sized load of powder, and all of it pummels your senses for the first ninety minutes of wear. Eventually the top subsides, the heart melds into the dry base, and the whole thing becomes more of an "aura" scent, the sort that fills the room but then drops into the background. Personally I hate this fragrance, although I do remember when it came out and headlocked the '90s. There's no reason to revisit this unless you want to smell like one of those 27 - 35 year-olds who still hasn't gotten their stuff together and spends weekends night clubbing. I'm hard pressed to believe there's many teenagers who wear this nowadays - many other equally abysmal fragrances have replaced it, but it still has a powerful presence in certain settings. Much like Cool Water and Polo, Le Male is one of those masculine legends that will live on in infamy.

very sweet. soft, clean, warm, and powdery lavender and vanilla, with a subtle touch of mint. on myself, the lavender, with a hint of cinnamon, lingers most.

Sweet tonka beans and vanilla. A good winter time clubbing frag. Girls go crazy over this, but go easy on the trigger- perhaps two sprays and that's it. Lasts forever on my skin. Still not too commonly worn in the midwest USA, but I fear not for much longer.

How is this one a top seller?! Really?! A synthetic vanilla explosion mixed with mint all the way through... too much linear and boring. Stays forever on skin and projects like a monster.

Before i really got into fragrances i would see this guy laying around at my local boutique all the time, so much so that i apparently overlooked it time and time again. I read up that Gaultier's inspiration for this piece was "A mans skin in the sun", and to that i would say bravo.
I can vividly remember being at the beach a couple of years ago, and a very similar aroma emanated from my skin after i sat out in the sun all day.
Extraordinary, fascinating and cultivating, Le male has surely stolen the hearts of many men and women over the years. You can add mine to that list.

The top:

Powdery lavender and mint work together as a team creating that "steam over cold air" feeling, similar to cool water, yet obviously different, indescribingly seperate. Herbal artemisia and bergamot add a much appreciated nudge towards a suggestive greeness. Cardamom is simply assisting in that spicy "body odor" type vibe that is echoe'd throughout the entire scent.
Making pretend it's not just something you've applied.

The middle:

In my opinion cinnamon is in this composition more or less as a "binding" agent. Giving structure throughout, leaving nothing without substance.
The middle is where you will really get that "sun-drenched" vibe, because of the creamy floral orange blossom being taken by spicy "red" cardamom. The magic is in the middle with this one. Without these key middle notes i think we would have a whole different beast, with a LOT less body(ironic huh?).

The base:

A soft landing offered by a synthetic vanilla contrasts well with the suger dusted tonka bean you nearly missed. Not smooth, yet not necessarily course, tonka bean adds much needed depth and substance to the composition. In my opinion, Styrax, or Benzoin crystals may have faired better than the Vanilla/Tonka combo.
On the after-smell, we get the ever so slight whiff of saline sandalwood.


I approve

I recently smelled this in a magazine add. I immediately had my hubby try it on because it was very appealing to me. It's a beautiful soft, cool smell.. the best way to describe it is like a light-weight, white angora sweater that you'd wear in the spring. It's almost a feminine fragrance, but the cedar, cinnamon, cardamom, bergamot.. they make it a secure, stable fragrance with masculine undertones. I've never smelled such an ambiguous fragrance before and I like it. My hubby, however, did not. He thought he smelled like a girl and scrubbed it off as soon as he got the chance. It gave him a little bit of a headache (he likes the lavender scent that this has but he's use to musks and vetivers, not so much florals). All in all, I'd say I like this on the paper way better than on a guy. To me, a guy who wears this may have a feminine side... If this perfume were a man, he'd be like Chandler on "Friends"... or maybe more like Will from "Will & Grace". ;0)

so simple
so simple

first of all a big blast of lavender and mint

then you get a very synthetic note (which is the worst point in this fragrance)

the middle notes are soo delecious the combination of cinnamon and vanilla is seductive

finally dries down to a powdery vanallic scent

projection and longivity are amazing!!

in case if you had hard time finding lemale in your counrty (like me) lol. check out sexy 212 by hererra
it may give a big picture how this fragrance smells like.
ofcourse lemale is much better and smoother than 212 sexy

I just don´t get why people are so worried about the scent´s popularity, if I like it, I´ll buy it, period.

After this little outflow, let´s go straight towards review:

This perfume is just amazing, light opening, not too sweet, a little powder, with anemisia + lavender + bergamot,great projection, great sillage, i feel like I have 1 million dollars on my bank account when I use it (women sorry I just FEEL LIKE, but I haven´t actually...lol). It´s glamorous, balanced, smooth, tres chic, intended for 30´s to 40´s modern men.

The middle tones are difficult to recognize and the basenotes make the perfume even better, with extraordinary lasting!!!

I love it!!! Like promoscanner, a member of this site said: "women melt in the presence of this scent" 100% agreed!

It´s like no other perfume....UNIQUE..... as someone´s else said in this site, It´s poetry in a bottle...

Bottle: 8/10
Scent 9,5/10
Sillage: 9/10
Projection: 10/10
Scattolini´s X-factor: 9/10
Overall: 9

I have this one but i dont use it, and i dont know why.
The scent is good. The projection em longevity is great.
Well, i know why i dont use this.
I dont use this because it has no use for me. I mean, this is not a scent to be used in everyday, like work and office, because its to sweet and powdery almost sickening.
Sometimes i find it too strong and annoying.
So i may use it in special occasions right? no. I have other better scents for special occasions. This one is too informal, i dont know how to explain.
Also i dont find it sexy because its to irreverent and humorous. The scent smells like sweet baby powder.
Well i dont know when im going to use it.
The bottle and the picture of a gay sailor represents really well this fragrance.

This was not a blind buy for me, so you see, i know what a bought. You may have the same experience i had.

overall 7.5/10

This oriental masterpiece opens with artemisia mixed with the lavender and the great mint. In heart, continues the mixed before, and enter into a sharp aroma by the orange blosson and a touch sweet of cinnamon. The base of sandalwood, amber and the delicious vanilla make us wish eat Le Male lol! I dont need to talk about projection (A+++) and longevity, when u spray that on your skin, glue like a tattoo :)

I hate the bottle, and the can that it comes in. These things aren't important if the juice is good, which I never liked that much when I tried it, but I only tested it once. I think I will test again to see if I like it, because it does appeal to me just because many girls like it, and I want to please the girls and just have fun with this fragrance stuff.

Love this stuff, definitely a "less is more" type fragrance like Joop Homme, many, many people wear it, which occasionally takes the shine off it for me (due to my idiosyncracies, not the fragrance), just smelt it tonight on many a male out for a drink in my town (Saturday night). It will probably still be very popular in another 15 years time. Bravo Jean Paul.

Before i bought this classic i had the other one (which i hated) Fleur du male. I was very dissapointed with Fleur du male so i gave it to my dad (which he loved). I bought this guy in perfumania for 45$ and wow...this is my signature scent, this drives all my lady friends CRAZYYY!!!!! it smells like candy mint and valnilla!! <3 its one of the best scents ever made in this world. Sensual, sweet and pure classic. It last 24 hours in my skin with just 3 sprays, no other fragance has done that kind of job.

My boyfriend wears this and I have a hard time with this one to be honest. (He wears this because as a hairdresser, the women love this.) The smell of vanilla is apparent, as is powder. Overall a pretty well balanced scent. To define "hard time" I will say I am not "put off" by this scent. On the contrary I rather like it and I know he is around when I smell it, but that also means he can never sneak up on me! Projection is over the top! Maybe he wears too much but I can smell this one as he approaches. And it is rather common too because it seems that I smell this on quite a few other men.

Bottom line? Like rather than love the smell, probably because projection is huge.

Girls love this scent! That's just great...I'm gay.

Less is more with Le Male.

I suppose this scent shows how much depends on the perfumer's rendition, rather than just the notes. This has more of my favourite notes than many of my favourite scents. But when I smell this I either run or hold my breath.

Yes, I'm female, and I don't associate it with any personal experience. It's the scent itself that offends my nose.

It may be true that most people over-apply. That can ruin a fragrance. But somehow I doubt that anyone who believes in "less is more" would use this in the first place.

This is a really great cologne for winter- the vanilla and cinnamon are very warming during winter as well as smelling great.
I definitely would not recommend this for summer though as it feels rather sticky and I find the scent comes across as very sweet during summer.

Le Male will work well and impress the newbies enough to buy a big bottle or maybe two but for the old timers who tried many perfumes and over time developed a taste for quality fragrances, They will find that Le Male just cannot hold itself well in the face of competition from many similarly priced perfumes.

This starts off with the mint and lavendar that create a smell like shaving cream. this top lasts about an hour and then it starts to dry down into vanila/cinamon aroma something like cinamin bun or a cinamon vanila candel. this middle lasts for a good 8 hours. then it calms down and the ceadr,tonka bean and sandlewood takes over with the vanilla lingering in the backgroun! This frag. is SEXY/WARM , thats what the ladies told me ;)!This is a vanila frag. so try it out before u buy it. Excelent all in all !

This is, in a way, a more civilized and a bit feminine version of Caron Pour Un Homme. Reminds me of French Vanilla Coffee Mate that I really love, so I don't mind smelling it all day. :-)

This stuff lasts and projects, so go easy on the trigger, 'cause too much can make you smell like you've spilled the creamer all over yourself. ;-)

The flacon design alone is brilliant. It's surely an equivalent of the classic Coca-Cola bottle in the fragrance world, it's at least equally recognizable.

Love the body wash, but the cologne may be a little too much, you can wear the body wash anytime of year, but the cologne you only wear fall/winter/early, cold, and rainy spring... that's the purpose of the body wash is to use it with the body wash you already have, or use it alone, to enhance the overall smell/ aura..

This scent lasts about six hours, and that was after applying three sprays that I desperately hoped were not too much. Initially is has a fresh water kind of scent, though water that is flowing by some sort of flowers. With that said, it's not feminine -- there's a subtle masculine undertow to it that I can't quite peg. It fades rapidly and leaves behind a sweet, faintly musky scent.

My second outing revealed more notes to the mix -- the detergent note and the root beer note! It wasn't the top note of root beer, but the middle, aged, stale kind of smell. I did note some curiosity by the ladies on this, but really I didn't care for how it smelled on me, and it just didn't last very long.

I'm female - I wear a number of unisex or male fragraces (Old spice, Black Leather suede, Bvlgari homme) as well as the girly stuff.

I tried this on in a department store - based on reviews.
I had a guy with me.
"Here, sniff, what do you think," I said.
He sniffed my wrist.
"You smell like sweaty man," he said.
I was a bit aghast.
I smelled like sweaty man?
But not like sweat, as it turned out, it's just that he associated this scent with 'men', and "men are always sweaty", so therefore even though i wasnt sweaty, i smelt like sweaty man!
This was enough to put me off buying this scent for a loooong time. However, every time i wandered by it, i would give it a spray. As a good, non sweet vanilla, gets me every time.
This one got to me.
I just bought it.
I'm now sitting in my lounge, on my lap top, sniffing the smell of sweaty man.
And if i decide it's too much, I always have the option of giving it to a man and smelling it on him, too.

I have no idea why some one would ...come on all the noses are not equal, you like some and some you don't, whats the fuss.
When I first smelled it, i did not like it, thought it to be a cheap strong smelling, however it was intriguing, every time time i went to MAcy's I sprayed it on my wrist and smelled and wanted to know what was bad about it. Nothing was!! Its kind of strong but the good strong. If you like this you would like Dior homme too.

I couldn’t wait for this bottle to be finished. Its just something about how this one gets in the throat and nose that I didn’t like after a while of owning it. Plus, its so easy to spot that anywhere you go, people will know that you sprayed the stuff out of the bottle shaped like a guy. This is a good one for the 21 and under crowd.

This fragrance smells like powder, but not baby powder, which would be rather sick, lol in a cologne! I think this smells like after a man goes to the barber shop and gets his hair cut the talc or talcum powder the barber puts around and down the neck and shirt. I love this scent it is absolute perfection.

Sexy, Romantic, Passionate, Sensual. Words cannot express the things that come in this bottle. Ive smelled many many fragrances throughout my time. Ive smelled the other popular designer night time/sexy/romantic scents like A*Men, Pure Malt, Armani Code, La Nuit de L'homme, Allure, many many more. Ive smelled the popular niche fragrances in the class such as Musc Ravageur, Tobacco Vanille, New Haarlem, Chergui, and many manny more. But for me, nothing matches up to Jean Paul Gaultier's Le male. For me, its the greatest fragrance in the world.

First of all, the scent itself. From the amazing Mint and Lavender opening, to the absolutely hypnotizing Vanilla middle and drydown, this fragrance is absolute sex in a bottle, an absolute lady killer, and must be by far the most complimented fragrance of all time.

Secondly, many fragrances can smell good, but do they last? and can someone smell me from over there...With Le Male, there is never any worry about that. It projects like a beast and lasts long. That power, coupled with the hypnotizing scent, makes for an absolute gem.

Third. Yeah. Its popular. Its one of the best sellers in the history of the the industry and for damn good reason. Just because it sells alot doesnt mean it should be looked down on. If it wasnt so amazing, it wouldnt be so popular. Its as simple as that. Its overall financial success in the fragrance industry shouldnt be something that you fault this fragrance for, but something that should be recognized and rewarded.

Ive been very very very pleased with alot of fragrances, but there is no fragrance in this world that has left the impression that Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier has left me. When i smelled it on a friend for the first time, i was absolutely shocked. SHOCKED.

This IS the greatest fragrance of all time, and it shouldnt be knocked because so many of tried copying it and it shouldnt be knocked because it doesnt smell funky or like a womens perfume.

Basketball has Michael Jordan. Mens fragrance has Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male.

All hail, The Holy Grail

Smell:The most alluring, romantic, attractive fragrance i have ever smelled;10
Projection:Projects a loooong range with a dreamy powdery vanilla;10
Longevity:11-24 hours.If you choose to wear Le Male in the morning, you choose to wear it ALL day and maybe before your morning shower the next day;10

FINAL GRADE: 10/10

All I ever really got from this was a soapy/clean scent that was somehow reminiscent of an old-time barbershop. The sillage and longevity are everything other reviewers have claimed.

While I like this fragrance it never really did anything special for me. This, coupled with my wife's dislike of this one, means I will probably not be buying again.

Sixthscents your review is ignorant beyond belief. Its the 21st century now if you had not noticed? Who cares if the bottle is a male torso why does that threaten you? You are probably the kind of man who needs to tear off the sticker off a bottle of Fierce because it has a photo of a mans body on it.
As for the fragrance.... It suffers from the same problem that Joop and Fahernheit does, namely over-application and a feeling of 'of their time'. when these scents are worn with lightness they smell OK, however,when they arer overdone they smell headache enducing.

A sexy and soft yet masculine scent. It has a very powdery and floral (I get lavender) top with a warm and sweet heart and base. The top notes on this thing are so addictive, probably one of the best I have ever smelt. This is a perfect date night or night out fragrance. Definitely use this if you want to impress that special someone. All in all Le Male is an extremely easy cologne to take in. Also this projects amazingly well and the sillage is quite nice. If you are looking to turn heads in a good way look no further than this.

The "Almighty" Le Male. This very well known fragrance fits in the same category of the 80's powerhouses as YSL Kouros or Paco Rabanne PH in the area of strength, sillage and longevity. It's unnecesary to make another detailed review on this ode on how to make successfull marketing, but I will say some things that may help when you're in the dilemma of "which is better, Le male or...?".
1-Le Male is too common to use it to surprise somebody (lack of uniqueness)
2-Le Male definitely kills every single new frag in the market in terms of sillage, staying power, etc
3- Le Male is the epithome of (synthetic)vanilla-based perfumes. If you like industrially manufactured vanilla (that is to say, aromatic candle smell), you will like this. Personally, i love it
4-Le Male wins in the versatility realm, but NEVER use it in hot summer days or people will hate you.
5-Very expensive, BTW
6- Women really like this, I don't know why. From young girls to mature ladies, every single one of them seems to love this juice.
After all this statement, I must say one final word: TRY IT (let your nose take the final verdict).

Weird combo of Gaultier 2 resiny, spicy incense and an aquatic men's scent. It works, though I can't say why, and dries down to a cool, pleasant musk. Women or men could wear this, no matter what gianmarco said here. I think he was more turned off by smelling a recognizable man's scent on a woman than by the fragrance itself. If I wear Old Spice, it's because I like the scent and sorry to any guy out there who can't hack a woman wearing a man's scent. Men wear womens scents too, and we try not to draw lines.

I am yet another woman who enjoys wearing this for herself! As a big fan of lavender this fragrance is one of my favourites. This is a lovely scent that is sweet but not over the top like some women's perfumes which can easily be too floral or fruity for my liking. The drydown is gorgeous and warm and lasts all day - especially on my clothes. Both men and women have complimented me when wearing this and I'll always be sure to have a bottle in my collection!

I was wondering what to get my dad for Christmas, and though he asked for Boss Bottled, I did not like it at all. Then I considered Acqua di Gio, but after smelling it, I didn't think it would suit an over 80 years old man. More for younger guys, I think. Then a colleague at work gave me a sample of Le Male, and that's what I'm gonna get for my dad! It's classic, not too sharp, masculine but soft and pleasant. I'm so happy I made up my mind! Lets hope my dad's gonna love it as much as I do!

On my skin:
Top: Sharp, vanilla-like scent, with sweetness-mints in it. Its like eating the eclipse sweet, mix with vanilla seeds...I dunno....6 hours (OMG).

Middle: Not much changes from this unique-shape bottle. the vanilla turns up a little, the mint settles down, and the sharpness wears down a little; 6 hours.

Base: Vanilla, vanilla, and more vanilla; 6 hours.

For sure its a complement getter (80% likes, 20% hates). Girls LOVE this one. This is a common-every-one uses it fragrance. I bet some girl hates this because her boyfriend dump her, and he is on Le Male.

Night out, clubbing scent. It can be a chill out with friends at night scent. BUT not for work, you boss will hate you when you're on this.

I have scent this around college students, so if you want to be unique, this is a pass.

If you want attention, you want to get laid, or whatever, or you are MR POPULAR, bingo, this is for you.

The country I am in has no 4 seasons, so it is either hot or cold weather. This works pretty very well on both actually, as I mention, I have scent this in college, so heck.

My rating (base on 5 stars)

Scent: 2 (eveyone has it, its not unique, its boring, JPG is making money. A 5 if it is MR POPULAR's signature scent).

Sillage: 5 (this is a godzilla scent, its your Lady Gaga, your Jonas Brothers, your DJ's in the house y'all scent).

Time length: 5 (bazooka scent that sends you to the moon).

Occasion: 2 (YES! finally it gets a 2 score for me! night out scent but also a day scent, not for work, you get a 5 if you are MR POPULAR).

Overall base on mathematics: 3.5 @ 5/5
FOR MR POPULAR!

COMMON SCENT, MR POPULAR SCENT, CHICKS LOVE IT, BOSS HATES IT, I HATE IT.

Tested it on paper while looking for a Christmas present for a friend and there is no way in hell he's getting this - because I don't find it very manly and because I'M KEEPING IT FOR MYSELF; I got the loveliest burst of cherries - I have read other reviews and NOBODY smelled cherries; Weird perception on my part but I got a sense of fresh, not too sweet, rather cool, heightened cherry smell with a creaminess around it; I wanted to eat that piece of paper. I'm gonna try it on my skin next and hope *please, please, please* that my skin does not ruin it (I'm not expecting any cherry smell, I suspect it's gonna be quite different on skin from what I got on paper... Maybe I was just hungry when I smelled it first)


Lovely on my skin too, and the cherry was there too followed by amazing warm musk and vanilla at the end. Great perfume! And I take back what I said about it not being masculine enough, I think a man could defenetly carry this. It's downright edible.

i read lot of good reviews about this scent so i bought it without testing. I guess I wasted money. The smell is too powdery, it smells Jhonson & jhonson baby power.

Its not for men of 2010. May suit uncles

What a fragrance!! Le Male in my opinion just has to be the best male fragrance from jean paul gaultier. I used to date a guy from argentina and when he wore Le Male it drove me crazy with delight and most of the girls he knew loved it on him. Le Male is sexy, crazy and fun. It envokes passion. Just the fragrance to wear on the dance floor. Le Male is perfect for the man who is ambitious, sexy, flirtatious, romantic and passionate. I just love the bottle design, jean paul is a master of design.

YOu can say that it's very popular, that is on every men's neck, you can say whatever you want, but this scent is so damn good! Even it has past a fifteen years..this scent gives more and more! It's so thick scent...like it says, "I want to hug you". Big projection, aura, longivity...so complex style, openning with a mint and lavender and the heart mixed with base notes gives us so delicate, tasty scent...someone says that it's a chemical bomb, but I say it's a magnificient bomb! The fragrance that connects and embraces everyone in the surrounding...this fragrance wrote a small piece of history with such a beautiful moments for someone, that is for sure. I want them to last as the fragrance last...for ever!

Quality ****
Versatility **
Durability *****
Sillage *****
Top **
Heart ****
Base *****
Final score ****

That's the one that introduced me to the hobby of scents. Yes, it was a bit of that "what can I add to my arsenal to attract girls?". It screams fun, fun, fun.

The good
Young girls dig this. Period.
It's also a pretty complex mainstream fragrance. Most laymen probably don't even know about the notes pyramid but it's all there, knock-offs and cheapos can't pull it off. It's a fun journey indeed, from the fresh top to the cheerful heart, finally arriving at the clean drydown.
Unique and it doesn't feel like the cliche men's scents.
Proper sillage test shows it's not really so sweet as some people claim, if applied with a light hand.
Atomic sillage and staying power.

The bad
Because of the gender crossing thematic typical of Gaultier's, this one will sparkle discussions on what's appropriate for men pretty often. Conservative noses will label it girlish or gay, so be ready for it.
I believe it's a "fun scent" and therefore not appropriate for office and formal settings.
The top notes feel indeed industrial/synthetic and that might put off some.

The ugly
Being the quintessential "pickup scent", many men treat it like a love potion: the more the better, they must think. The resulting mess is disgusting but what scent doesn't reek when overapplied?
Not appropriate for very hot weather.
To each their own but I also find older (40+) folks wearing this as trying too hard most of the time, just like it would feel it they wore teenager clothing.
Quite a many people mistake it for Cuba Gold, a cheapo, as the heart notes are pretty close.

after wearing this stuff for awhile i have noticed a few things that are VERY important about this scent

it is VERY heavy and can EASILY be overpowering if not applied very sparingly.....a few sprays could easily last a week

this is definately a sweet smelling scent and i have heard of it as a "lady killer" this is NOT what i have found wearing it and actually a few people were put off by it's "pungent" smell

it is a very soapy heavy scent that MUST be only worn for romantic wear and if u wear it to class don't be upset if all the people sit across the room from u.... it MUST be worn at the right occasion just like joop

I loved the smell of mint in it. I just think it could be stronger. Longevity on me was about 7 hours. I didn't receive so many compliments wearing it as everybody says, but it's ok, after trying the free sample I really want to buy it to wear in selected occasions.

Sweet,masculine,and sexy..when you hold this small body of le male and smell that scent you'll directly have a feeling of masculanity..
I wasn't interested in le male when I bought it as much as when I've been using it for some while.
some times I wear it before going to bed..I just can't stop having more of this fragrance on my body..better on winter days.. longevity and sillage are really good..incredible

Hands down the most distinct Male fragrance ever..It is amazing musky and
soft..I can always tell when a man is wearing this...It's the only cologne that can not be confused with any other. Unlike every other male fragrance on the market, which has a typical scent...It sticks out like a sore thumb.. I want to attack A MAN THAT is wearing this..Love JPG Le Male.

This is now my favorite serious-occasion perfume. So cool, punchy and confident on top, needs rather very long time (compared to other ones I have/had) to subside on my skin. On first and second use, I even wondered and thought of not wearing it anymore. But after the third time, wow!

After topnote dissipates, it turned 180 degrees; more warm/sexy, rounded, and sweet. Makes me like it even more.

Who said this perfume isn't masculine? They just ain't have any confidence wearing it. If you are, wear it, and it will reinforce your confidence even more.

Well, you should try it several times, just to make sure. It's strong at first, anyway...

Brought home a sample for my university-aged son.

I'll probably be chastised for saying this, but -- if it's going to appeal to a certain demographic, it might tend to appeal to a younger generation. (Notice I said "might" and "tend". Meaning: not all young people are going to like it; and some not-quite-so-young people might. Did I put enough qualifiers in there?)

What with both the tonka and vanilla beans, it's very sweet, indeed, which is quite popular in fragrances these days. To MY nose, Le Male is "suffocating" (as one reviewer remarked). It actually bothers the back of my throat when I smell it. I sense an aoud/incense as well, even though they're not listed in the notes.

If you wonder whether this sugary concoction has any staying power as the hours pass by -- fear not! Longevity is (unfortunately) no problem.

My son is not crazy about this either, but his girlfriend (who lives for vanilla-flavoured perfumes/candles/air fresheners) absolutely adores it. Such a good sport, this lad of mine. Ah! Young love!

At first sight, everything is very offputting: the bottle, the brandname, the designer, the packaging, the adverts, even the perfume as per the thousands of men dousing themselves in this. If this is your case, do yourself a favor and get rid of preconceptions for Mr. Kourkdjan did an excellent job.

Le Mâle is very complex, noticing the way notes morph is a joy in itself - down here (Argentina) Le Mâle has been copied succesfuly to some extent, for this complexity has not been achieved either by knock-offs nor by local designer scents. It is very sweet and powdery, in a way it pays tribute to classic scents, without being dated. The sweetness does refer to actual styles in masculine scents without the shyness and subtlety so common in recent releases, traditional wearers or critics might perceive it as femenine, but, let's face it, things change, and in this case, it is something positive.

However, Le Mâle should be applied with care for it can end up being a nightmare for those around a careless wearer. One or two sprays do, they will make you smell good, get compliments, get whiffs of it day long, and best of all, smell like a man should for the base notes correspond to a classic male scent.

This one is very unique, and absolutely a love/hate scent. It`s a bit strange that it`s so popular, because it`s definitively not ordinary and boring. You will not go un-noticed when wearing this stuff. Be very careful on the trigger, otherwise it can be sickenly cloying, and give you a headache. I would say max 2 spray under your shirt. It`s a "spray in air walk throug cloud" scent. I think the reason people don`t like it, is because some guys overspray themselves with this stuff. If you think this scent is ok, but want to try something more refined and luxurious, I will recommend Amouage Reflection. It has the same "aura" in a sort of way, but is much more refined with more high quality ingredients. As always, try before you buy! Good luck..

This EDT is a classic for many. It has a musky smell of a fresh, masculine, powerful, and very fine. It is very recognizable note of musk in this fragrance. It seems very linear, which may be a good effect if you want a scent of musk. I do not think it is for teens, this harmonizes better with men from 21 onwards. It is very romantic musk. I do not think has more purposes than this scent of seduction.

To my point of view is just a very fine smell of musk. The bottle has a very original design, although not very attractive to men (what kind of man would grab a man's body?).

Without wasting any time and to make it short: the French luxury fashion brand Jean-Paul Gaultier have given a classic of male fragrances to the world. Created in the mid-nineties it is already so popular and famous by now that it can be purchased all over the world (I travelled the Sahara desert and what I found there was Coca Cola lemonade and Gaultier's "Le Male").

But seriously, when a perfume was popular during the 1990s, is still popular at the present time and will surely be popular in the future I think one can call that perfume a classic. "Le Male" is evidence enough that men's fragrances can be both oriental and masculine. In one word: Timeless!

Esta es una fragancia que a primera impresion esta pensada para destacar e impresionar a la gente que rodea a quien porta la fragancia. En mi opinion es buena para otoño/invierno, fundamentalmente porque la fragancia en un principio es intensa hasta que se estabilice en la piel (pasan mas de 20 minutos hasta que desaparezca la alcoholura). Desde un comienzo, la impronta del perfume destaca con una estela de menta y citricos (bergamota), que van perdurando en el tiempo y son sostenidos por la vainilla. La vainilla no alcanza a ser empalagosa, y se mantiene en un punto de frescura/dulzura bien balanceado gracias a la bergamota, lavanda y la flor de neroli en el centro de la piramide olfativa.
Por otro lado, la persistencia de la piramide se debe a la gran cantidad de ftalatos y almizcles sinteticos (3.3 % del peso total de la fragancia) que no se declaran aqui, por lo cual debiera realizarse un estudio del impacto para el organismo fruto de su consumo, y si a largo plazo resulta su utilizacion resulta toxica o perjudicial.

The best thing to do with fragrance is to shower really well, what I like to do is shower with a good body wash, oldspice, odor eating body wash, or dial, protection, type body wash....still wet/dripping, spray 2 full sprays, and towel dry off..still a strong scent, but if you wear it appropiately it's great

The perfume itself is great. I couldn't imagine how sweet vanilla and cinnamon can be so important in a perfume and not make it puerile; however, Le Male is playful. The blend of herbs is well done and not offensive to me, and the long-lasting base is also OK.
I somehow agree with zvoncica, and I think that this perfume doesn't suit everyone. It inevitableby makes me think of the young lovers of mature glories who get confused with night; but it also reminds me good friends. Men can be things much worse than irresponsible; and not all men must smell mature and serious, and take women seriously. However, this perfume can feel as a stupid joke when worn by the wrong person.

I observed Le Male from various points down the testing alley he walked. On test paper, on friend, on my skin, on boyfriend, on stranger. Most striking note in it are green aromatics which give him cold and metallic appearance. Endless lavender bushes, not even natural, this are lavender fields on spray painted picture. Original toothpaste mint and dreadful "thank you cant stand anymore" artemisia.

Le Male has the frying pan personality and is lovely as Spain boot. The sailor? He is on Balldessarini`s Ambre boat. This is consumed gigolo in B movie cast.
Avoid.

now this cologne is exellent regardless what anyone would say, this is a brilliant creation. It is a very masculine scent that follow you throughout the day unlike many other colognes that just die out. I would class this scent in the same category as dolce & gabbana, john varvatos, thierry mugler all because these colognes have great longetivity and it screams MASCULINE SCENT. all in all 9.5/10

When worn right, and this means only 1 spray on the chest, it's the best winter fragrance you can get. But it becomes a cloying mess when people douse themselve in it.
The fragrance opens with lavender and minth, soothing and refreshing at once. Further on, you'll smell orange blossom and in the later drydown sandalwood, tonka and vanilla combo. Longevity and sillage are extraordinary.
Conclusion: seductive winter fragrance that never fails to get you complimented if you wear it lightly!

8,5/10 (one spray) in winter
4/10 (more than two sprays) on a hot summer day.

Pure sharp strong lavender essence makes a long lasting aura of nature around you and you can’t get rid of it for many hours!

I had another lavender-base cologne “Pour Un Homme de Caron by Caron”, that was more mature and less wild comparison to this one.

“Le Male” is very strong and overwhelming. Even you use just a little amount; it takes about half an hour to getting calm and manifests the real heart of scent.

Longevity and sillage are so good.
I like it too ☺

بوی شدید و قوی استخطوس در این عطر، حاله ای بسیار با دوام از رایحهء طبیعت دور شما ایجاد میکنه که به این راحتی ها نمیتونین ازش خلاص بشین! د
در مقایسه با پورآنوم (که اون هم بر اساس عطر استخطوس درست شده) این عطر خیلی وحشی تر و قوی تره

تنها یک یا دو پاف از این عطر میتونه برای تمام روز کفایت کنه و استفاده بیشتر از اون ممکنه باعث آزرده شدن اطرافیان بشه پس مواظب باشید در استفاده از اون افراط نکنین
دوام و پخش بوی خیلی بالایی داره

کلاً عطر جالب و منحصر بفردیه

Hmmm, if only all men in the world smelt like this (apart from all dads, obviously). It's sexy because it's different to the pipe and slippers school of 'sophisticated' male scents, which unfortunately remind most people of bosses or uncles. I MUST buy a bottle for my husband, though he's smelling pretty good in my MAC MV3 at the moment!!

This is my signature fall cologne. it stars off very floral. in the opening the lavender is very prominent witha hint of bergamot and mint. it has one of "THE" best opening. in the dry down the vanilla is the most prominent and with a hint of tonka beans. this bad boy spreads like crazy. it always leaves a scent trail like when i exit a building and if theirs someone close to me , he will definatly turn his or her head around to see me and mostly its her head. im tellin you guys its a real head turner. and it last on my skin minimum 6 hrs. with that enough said .PEACE !

My fiancee wears this often and I wished he didn't because I don't like it. I find it suffocating, too powdery and sweet for my liking. Bear in mind I may be biased here because I like my guy smelling soapy-clean, with that fresh-out-the-shower aura. I think it's really appealing on a man. Anyway, I am also one of those people who believes fragrances should not be labeled as feminine or masculine. My fiancee and I share and exchange some scents because we wear whatever the heck we want despite any labels. With that being said, I think Le Male is simply too sweet and powdery for anyone - male or female.

I understand that this is one of the classic male perfumes of the 1990s, and I actually do like the smell, yet it reminds me of scented erasers that were popular when I went to school. This makes it cheap and childish, and hence not sexy at all. This of course applies only to my mind, so go out and have a go.

I can't say the word wonderful enough when it comes to describing this amazing Jean Paul Gaultier creation.

I don't know where these so-called 'homosexual' and 'metrosexual' terminologies come from. I'm not one for throwing a fragrance into a particular category, Le Male can be either masculine or sweet with a feministic touch, it all depends on how you interpret the scent.

Because vanilla and musk are dominant notes in this fragrance, I can see why some men might think that this lacks masculinity. Let me assure you that when worn by the right man this has all the potential to make me swoon.

Le Male is sweet yet refreshing at the same time. Some have noted an almost soapy and powdery quality, which is certainly there, however I quite like it. I particularly love that for a fragrance which is so popular, it is so unique, one of a kind.

The lasting strength, is honestly, out of this world. It has the ability to last and last. I must add that I rather like the bottle. I like its bold and straight-forward design. It's beyond me to understand why someone would be ashamed of displaying it.

Why did I have to miss the fougere part? I might like the heavy sweet scent more were I treated to
some lavender, mint and artemesia!

I was at a milonga (tango dance)wearing a bit of a sample of one of those luscious and demure way-to-expensive-to-buy fragrances, when I encountered and danced with a guy who went crazy with his bottle of Le Male. I have a light hand with my fragrances, most of the time, definitely that time--But I couldn't smell myself at all, nor anything else except for a bit of wood and SWEETNESS! I was thinking I could wear his cologne myself, and nobody would know it was a a fragrance made for men. I like a creative, unusual kind of sweet scent on men, but this doesn't make me look twice. Perhaps it could be nice if he wore just a touch. This didn't upset my nose, but it did irritate me. A really great fragrance can still make you swoon, or boost your mood when you smell it on somebody who sprayed just a bit too much (as long as you are in an open, well-ventilated area, not during allergy season). If this was wonderful, his heavy-handed approach wouldn't have seemed so aggressive.
I smelled Burberry Brit for men on one of my friends when I left the dance, and I was reminded what a well-balanced scent smells like, after being upstaged by this mean one.

In this case meets this principle so well known that the fragance in small packages .................. ............ and here we should have to Le Male added that in the right dose (to be exact ........ 3 sprays, one in the chest and two behind the ears. Well, that's my advice!
I love this fragrance but it is also true that I smelled in people who have spent at the dose ... and it is very heavy. It is the fragrance, along with Cool Water, which I have received more compliments in all age ranges. 9.5/10 for me

Great fragrance that lasts pretty long, atleast on my skin, at first is smells kind of soapy and clean, then the scent reminds me alot of those orange slice shaped gummies covered in sugar with a slight mint note on top of that, and after that it becomes very smooth and warm, with vanilla and amber. Its great at night when youre out having a good time in my opinion. Alot of people say that everyone wears this, but I rarely meet people wearing this fragrance. Even if alot of people did, I cant deny that it smells really good!

Le Male is the most famous male fragrance. The bottle says it all - as masculine as possible, but playful and ambivalent due to the stripes.

The scent replies to the images of the bottle it's contained in properly.

The beginning is brute and truly manly, pumped up with cardamom, artemisia and mint. It's ....the male.

A few minutes later though the stripes start to creep in. And all of a sudden the tough male has become , well , playful. Freed from manly restrictions.

And, yes, middle and base notes are fantastic. Woods, cinnamon and vanilla make Le Male what it is - a true masterpiece of fragrance world. *****

One of those fragrances that, if over-applied, can lead to a disastrous experience, but when you put on the right amount (2 to 3 sprays), it's a fragrance that yourself and the others around you can REALLY enjoy. I love the spicy florals, mint and vanilla. They seem to work well with each other. I would definitely recommend this for night wear. The bottle is also pretty cool.

I am not sure why "gay" or "meterosexual" come up whenever Le Male is discussed. Is it the fact the bottle is a male torso or is it the AMAZING smell it has?

I wear this a lot. I have worn this since the 90s in college and have always gotten compliments.

The lavender and mint and very strong and refreshing. The base with its spicy and gourmand notes make it the perfect fragnrance. I do not get anything synthetic on me. What a classic. TIMELESS

It is not bad, but simply I do not find it sexy. I perceive it as great for gay or bisexual men. It was designed for them if you study well its story. I do not like it because the tonka is so strong, that I perceive it as synthetic, plus I get some metallic notes I do not enjoy very much. Plus, many men already wear it, so why bother?

This is terrible. I bought it without trying it first and I regretted to the core. It smells sweet and worn out. It resmbles of cheap powder mixed with mosquito spray. It gives me headache. Most wome I know think it is bad as well, so there is absolutely nothing male about it despite the pretentious name. Thumbs down.

This smell nice and will be a good scent for the winter. Too bad my country is hot year round so I cannot wear this, the bottle is cool though and the advertising is amazing. Like the sailor theme :D! I really don't understand the controversy about this one as well as A*Men. IMO, both smell quite nice and inoffensive. I've seen worse out there with so much praise AKA "everything by Paco Rabanne: Black XS, 1 million, Ultra violet, you name it"

If I meet a man who uses this scent, I will definitely stay away from him. This scent makes guys smell like little girls. A bit too much of that whole metrosexual stuff going on for me. Plus it is way too sweet and intense.

I tried if I could like JPG offerings: Le Male and Fleur D’ Male. These fragrances in my ultimate opinion (whether good or bad) are typical "metro sexual" realities! Thereafter, being a lasting and silage monsters is an impractical feature for insisting me to put them in any sort of regular usage.

Thumbs Down for having these worst fragrances in my collection. I spent a quite heavy price to get them. Worst 2nd Buy in my 75+ collection is “Le Male” while the 1st one is "Fleur D' Male" (yakhhhhhhh!!!)

And after getting these 2 from JPG, I learnt to try at least twice before buying any PERFUME!

Final Conclusion: Only use in which I can put Le Male is to mix it with some sophisticated heavy & spicy fragrance to give a little sweet touch! And unfortunately can’t put Fleur D’ Male even for such a use.

NOT a fan of this one... First smell was from a magazine, and I couldn't bear it. I passed the mag over to my girlfriend (to see if it was just me) and she gave the same reaction... Blah!
If you want to smell different from most metrosexual yuppies at nightclubs, then this is not the scent for you.

This is definitely one of my favourite scents. It just hits you with an aroma that is both dark and heavy as well as fresh at the same time. The most noticeable characteristic for me upon first applying is the vanilla/little bit of mint/almost soapy kind of scent. As it progreses I can see how some are turned off by the kind of chemically scents in there but I think for the most part that is an issue of overapplication. This scent is meant to be worn lightly.

A very simple Cologne... Lavender..lavender...and lavender. It smells like an anti-mosquito cream
Don't overspray..

The longevity is great!!

Ok, since making mistakes is only human and rectify them is for those who are wize, I´m going to rectify my previous review. After three days wearing Le Male, I can say I´ve changed my mind, I now can see what a beautiful piece of art it is, the minty start, the cinnamon, the super sexy vanilla, just beautiful. I recomend it, but be patient and don´t be scared, it takes a while to accustom to it.

I definitely agree that this unique perfume (with lots of vanilla in it) is absolutely attractive and irrestistible to woman, but only one very masculine 'males'.
One of the best men's fragrances of the world.

Very strong for 2 hours! Later is smooth , warm, Luxury, luminous, sweet, but flowery. Long lasting ! I like orange blossom, cinnamon and vanilla; better than Carolina Herrera 212 (my oppinion). My No.1 Le Male and A*men!
Superb!

i don't like this at all... from sweet, powdery scents i love herrera 212 and aqua. for me herrera's house makes it right; and in this fragrance we have pepper versus vanilla. unfortunatly it's devastating war for ppl who wear this fragrance ;/

Hmmm. I must be missing something. I'm wearing it right now and I smell like essence of Grandma's Gardenia. The women in my office Do Not like this fragrance.

Le male has a very strong sweet smell which dominates everything else in the room, women do like it very much but i will not recommend for the summer, you have to a bit of a metrosexual to wear it it isn't something you want to buy a macho man!
but i have to say it is a very good and seductive perfume well done Jean Paul Gaultier!
Note: don't wear too much of it!

Wow, this is a really distinctive vanilla musk smell. It smells like the old Arrid Extra Extra Dry roll-on deodorant from the 1970's. (The new stuff smells different.) So, although I kind of like the vanilla, I can't help but think "deodorant" when I smell it.

I would say it is my favorite fragrance for a male. However, I got it for my ex-boyfriend and it would be absolutely wrong for me to purchase for my husband. As much as I love the fragrance, I guess it will be the kind I shall stop by the counter to sniff.
