I often feature fragrance, but most of the time it tends to be women's, unless I am doing a Father's Day Gift Guide, but I was recently very kindly sent the Jean Paul Gaultier So Scandal! Eau de Parfum* and the Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal Eau de Toilette Pour Homme*, which my Dad was thrilled about by the way, so I thought why not do a matching his and hers fragrance post!
The Jean Paul Gaultier So Scandal! Eau de Parfum (£79.99 for 80ml), is in keeping with other Jean Paul Gaultier fragrances, arriving in a beautiful velveteen tin, with the bottle having some fancy gold legs popping out of the top! So Scandal! is a fragrance that adds class and a beautiful depth of scent without being overpowering, so you could of course wear it both day and night.
This intoxicating scent contains a burst of Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Tuberose (my favourite), which strike the senses with a sensual elegance. The addiction of its milky notes intoxicatingly envelopes them with an addictive floral silage. So Scandal! is one of those fragrances that people will notice as your signature scent, so be prepared to be asked which perfume you are wearing!
The male counterpart is the Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal Eau de Toilette Pour Homme (£72.99 for 100ml), which comes luxuriously packaged in the red velveteen box, and comes complete with a golden crown on the top of the bottle. Scandal is an energising and addictive fragrance with a modern woody oriental scent that sure does pack a punch! I would even wear this, it is so delicious.
The fragrance opens with freshness - sage and full-fruit mandarin sharpening the senses. Roasted tonka beans and caramel are at the heart adding to the masculine energy and the sensual base draws on notes of vetiver and cedar. It is good to know that this eco-friendly scent uses 59% less glass, 46% less plastic and 64% less packaging than previous JPG fragrances.
