How good(/bad) is a Sweet fragrance
Sweet fragrance are mostly considered hard to pull of fragrances in the mens category. Mostly sweet fragrance consider as a unisex and wore by both male and female parties. Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male had overcome this constraint with different other notes and currently considered one of the best clubbing fragrance for men like versace eros and also considered one of the best compliment getter fragrance among the current fragrance generation. There is a lot of praises for Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male because it’s ability to overcome the famine fragrance genes without reducing the sweetness.
Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male
Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male is the successor of legendary fragrance Jean Paul Gaultier La male. The fragrance was introduced at 2015 summer as a re interpretation of La male. The fragrance was considered next flag ship fragrance of Jean Paul Gaultier fashion house. It was introduced as masculine , intense and seductive fragrance. francis kurkdjian was the nose behind this amazing fragrance and currently considered Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male as a one of the top 10 compliment getter fragrances among the designer crowd.
Scent and notes
Opening notes are ….. as you guessed bergamot( I don’t know what modern day perfumers do without bergamot) . Pear , mint , lavender and bit of orange. The opening burst wouldnt last long as there are many dominant base and middle notes are available on Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male.
When the dry down start the most of the sweet and spicy notes kicked in while throwing a citrus notes away. Most notable blend is Pear , Vanilla and Cinnamon. But under that there are amber lavender and woodsy notes are there. This smell persist for long time with sweetness dominant the overall scent.
Compare to its predecessor, Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male is pretty much a dominator in fragrance game. In cold weather it easily last longer than 7 hours without dropping the silage. People go as far as warning the wearers to not to spray more than 4 times to make others not chocked by it. In a hot and sunny day (I probably wont wear it) but in such a day it will last around 5 hours with high sweetness.
Very very high silage on Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male. Specially the pear notes and cinnamon notes tend to spread more than 5 to 6 feets in the air. That is also the main reason why it was suggest that this fragrance is ideal for clubbing or a party where many fragrances completive against each other. In such a environment, fragrances like Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male and versace eros where sweet and spiciness contain easily dominate rest of the notes.
For me its a winter fragrance and quite suitable for parties or clubbing. Age can be anywhere between 18 to 45. This is also a one weakness about Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male. The low versatility. Not suited for office environment and for very hot weather. Its high sweetness headache inducing and often can get you very bad compliment. But hey perfumes are subjective. So if its work for you in your office, then feel free to wore it all year around.
Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male has the signature man torso perfume bottle design from Jean Paul Gaultier. The bottle consist of blue background and black strips through out. The bottle comes in a traditional tin can and tin is dark blue color. Overall the presentation is very unique to Jean Paul Gaultier design company and its somewhat identical to legendary fragrance Jean Paul Gaultier La male. The prayer is comes with a beautiful silver ring next to it and its not bad type of a sprayer. Not the best in the market but it does the job.
Since Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra male is like the intense version of Jean Paul Gaultier la male (which is not) the popularity cause the prices to elevate somewhat. The bottles are available from the range between 40ml to 75ml and 125ml. The price goes between 90$ to 100$ for 125ml bottle so you can guess the price range for the lower onces. My advice is get something like 40ml bottle and keep using it for specific party events to get the most out of it.
When buying fragrances Always ALWAYS buy from authentic sellers. There are lots of fake or refurbished fragrances .
