“A per­fu­me that makes peop­le want to love each other” — yeah, right…

Three days ago, I got this sam­ple of JPG’s new fra­gran­ce “Gaultier^2″. They actual­ly gave out 2 litt­le dis­pen­sers along with 2 stran­ge strings — may­be assuming that cus­to­mers would want to use tho­se extra items to be given to a spe­cial per­son? And even worse — it’s uni­sex — mea­ning: yes, YOU — the man — will pro­bab­ly smell like Paris & Co (Perez inclu­ded :-). Yeah, go figu­re…
Now, what makes this rele­vant enough to beco­me a BE on Kiku’s realm — the SMELL reminds me of Nai­ro­bi. Ndi­yo, good old Bia­s­ha­ra Street. Gaul­tier says it’s a mix­tu­re of vanil­la, amber­gris (sp?) and musk — but!, I tell you, it’s more like the smell insi­de one of tho­se tailorings mixed up with OMO new power­foam, joss sticks from a hin­di temp­le, chlo­ri­de from your fav swim­ming pool and, once app­lied on your skin, 12year old sun­tan lotion. Now go ahead and love me! :-)
