Jean Paul Gaultier La Belle Fleur Terrible new fragrance just arrived
The new Jean Paul Gaultier La Belle Fleur Terrible fragrance is a wild, fresh, floral bouquet. A creamy, sensuous, petalled potion. Notes of triumphant iris are crowned in a host of other blossoms, all gracefully ushering in sensual vanilla. Simply terrible, isn’t it?
Quentin Bisch has dreamt up this floral-aquatic scent in the spirit of Gaultier fragrances. But for this opus, he wished to write a new olfactory history to suit such a (terribly) singular muse:
“It’s a slightly aquatic, incredibly carnal, powdery fragrance. The blossoms herald the sensuality of vanilla, which offers this floral bouquet its comforting, sensuous blanket.” — Quentin Bisch, perfumer at Givaudan and creator of La Belle Fleur Terrible for Jean Paul Gaultier.
Embodying this new delicate-yet-wild Gaultier La Belle Fleur Terrible muse is Tess McMillan. In January 2020, Tess lit up the catwalk during the designer’s farewell couture show. Ever since, this new flamboyant, callipygian ambassador has remained a constant source of inspiration. And here we have the terrible proof!
Terrible, terrible, she’s just terrible!
Watch out! Here she comes…
Beautiful! Floral! Terrible!
A wild plant with a velvety, carnal touch.
But will this brazen nymph seduce us or devour us?
Sultry and luscious, La Belle Fleur Terrible flaunts her self-love and confidence. We’ve been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of her in her lagoon-blue starkness. She sports an embroidered floral necklace, inspired by the ultra-couture headdress designed by the Jean Paul Gaultier Ateliers in 2020. And that’s all! She’s completely au naturel (or almost).
The iconic tin can is adorned in a multicolored oriental garden. Come in, stray wanderer! Inspired by a Gaultier print, butterflies, fabulous flora, and birds of paradise jostle around this haven where La Belle Fleur Terrible basks in delight. Temptation is at its peak.
Let us in! We must take in her fragrance!
