Classique EDT, 100ml
by Jean Paul Gaultier
Living up to its moniker, this fragrant favourite from our youth still feels as sexy now as it did then. While orange blossom and ginger add a fresh but gently spiced accent, it’s the inclusion of vanilla and rice powder (an ode to JPG’s childhood), which give it its nostalgic sweetness.
It’s quite sweet and spicy (which I’m not normally a fan of) but it’s balanced with a richness and woodiness that makes it feel more grown-up, while never being overpowering.
