Best Jean Paul Gaultier Colognes: Top 4 Men’s Fragrances


Jean Paul Gaultier fragrances have enjoyed massive commercial success for both its men’s and women’s line. While now, Le Male is almost ubiquitous in its usage, when it was released in 1995 it became popular because of its great scent, even if now it trades based on its reputation. For this list, I have selected four scents from Jean Paul Gaultier which I feel represent a best of their men’s cologne collection. As always, I have linked out to each pick’s page on for ease of purchase and for more information.

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male– One of the most popular and widely used fragrances in the world. Le Male blends orange blossom, mint, lavender, and woods to create a fragrance that is sexy and wholly masculine.


Gaultier 2– Not as heralded as Le Male, however, Gaultier 2 is a winner. It brings together a triumvirate of notes including, musk, amber, and vanilla to create a sweet, warm, and memorable fragrance.


Fleur du Male– Fleur du Male scales back the masculinity for something a little more androgynous but still quite appealing. A very nice scent for the right man.


Le Male Terrible– A scent with a sweet and powdery vibe to it. Le Male Terrible adds pink pepper and grapefruit to a base of vanilla, amber, and lavender. A solid choice.
