In 1993, Jean Paul Gaultier launched his first fragrance, Classique. The extraordinary designer offers his multifaceted view of femininity in the shape of a fascinating amazon woman which is bought to life through the memory of his grandmother’s corset, a recurring theme that has been constantly reinterpreted in his collections for almost 40 years.
An unexpected and ground breaking bust-shaped bottle with generous curves, a tribute to feminine beauty. Etched on the transparent glass is Jean Paul Gaultier’s emblematic garment for women: The Corset. The iconoclastic designer appropriates an everyday object and transforms it into an artistic case: the now-famous metal can.
Eau de Parfum Classique opens with a note of sparkling Sicilian Mandarin. The orchid speaks volumes about the desires of this strong woman, counterbalanced by bourbon vanilla absolute, the ultimate cleansing aroma.
