Gaultier²

"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! :-)

  2. LOL! I would buy the pefume if only to remind myself of Nairobi. However, I am always suspicious of things that purport to be unisex (like ‘one size fits all’ – NO IT DOES NOT!) and will not be fooled by this one :)

  3. Ati what?? LOL you should do a review on one of those perfume websites. LOL ati “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” Aki I’m going to laugh until tomorrow!!!

  4. Lakini it’s true! Today I’m wearing yesterdays poloshirt which was sputtered with Gaultier² all over it and I smell like I’ve spent all day long in Sarit Centre! :-)
