Fragrance can really take you back to another time and place. For me, the scent of Jean Paul Gaultier's classic perfume takes me back to being 16 and camping in Northampton practically every weekend with loads of my mates. It was the scent we all wanted to wear and the bathrooms were always fragranced with the endless spritzing prior to an evening out. I still look at the unique bottle with fantastic memories, which is why I'm actually excited to see that a new lighter variation is being launched. The 'L'Eau' is being launched for Spring with a slightly updated bottle and fresher top notes.
"Delicately sexy, like a soft caress, Jean Paul Gaultier Classique X Collection L’Eau sensuously reveals Peony and Orange Blossom accords. Top notes of Bergamot zest and Neroli bring the freshness and brilliance reminiscent of cologne, while Vanilla and Iris leave a misty trail. For this occasion, the legendary bottle is transparent and dressed in calligraphy to better reveal the crystalline soft pink fragrance. Skin toned, the metal can has a black velvet X, and is adorned with a design of curlicues and fishnet stockings. Eroticism that is only hinted at, all delicacy and lightness…"
Here's a sneaky peek at the bottle, which I think looks fabulous. I can't wait for a sniff. What perfumes or scents take you back to your youth?
