It may sound like a silly name, but it definitely makes you think of men. Jean Paul Gaultier chose this as the name for its fragrance created in 1995, and chose to embody its view of what a man should be.
About the scent
The bottle of this cologne starts of a proper fragrance review. That is because the body itself is a blue torso of a man. It looks somewhat like a statue that you would find in a Roman ruin – complete with rippling muscles, but no arms and legs. How appropriate.
The top notes of this fragrance are not overwhelming at all. Instead, Jean Paul Gaultier’s man is a bit more refined and quiet in the beginning. Calming lavender is paired with citrus for a light, relaxing initial impression. This leaves you waiting for the next feeling you will get from this cologne.
Sweet orange blossom in the middle tone of this great perfume is combined with the first punch you get. This punch comes in the form of a combination of cinnamon and caraway. Just a touch of spice mixed with a little sweetness when you get a little closer is how the maker argues a man should be.
Sandalwood, cedar and amber are combined for one of the most classically popular rich, woody base tones of many men’s colognes. In addition, for its own unique touch, Le Male has vanilla and tonka bean, which are common occasionally in both men and women’s scents as a base tone that is very appealing. This scent leaves you feeling slightly seduced, but only subtly.
The bottom line
This is great cologne for men that this company claims embodies a man perfectly. It is definitely a great scent, combining clean and fresh with a little spice, and underlining it with something classic and masculine.
