The Toolbox: 'Le Male' by Jean-Paul Gaultier

The first time I was introduced to Jean-Paul Gaultier's, Le Male, was years back during varsity, when a fanatic friend of mine, Phillip, was busy getting dressed for a party we were attending. He pulled out what looked like a canned fruit tin stripped of it's branding. From inside it, he whisked out a slick torso. My eyes popped. Without hesitation he began to pop pulses of this scent on his neck, behind the ears and wrists.

He looked over at me, passed the torso over, and suggested I try it. That, gentlemen, was my introduction to Le Male. The Eau Du Toilette is nothing short of sublime. It's fresh in a polite manner and formal in a non-offensive demeanor. It contains the standard lavender ingredient, and is shaken up with a twist of vanilla and mint. The emblematic sailor's jersey clad bottle exudes both power and sensuality.

The images above are of the Special Limited Edition Cocktail Shaker versions of the Le Male, which I received as a present recently.

Renaissance Men should consider this as a staple fragrance for the toolbox.
