New perfumes by Jean Paul Gaultier – La Belle & Le Beau- created in Gaultier’s Garden.
One morning, Jean Paul walked into his Factory. It was large and lively and happy. He looked at the women, and he looked at the men.
And his mind wandered to leisurely pastimes. And he thought, “Women and men should spend time together, it is good.”
On the first day, he created a garden. The garden was magical and enchanting and in the spirit of easy virtues everywhere!
On the second day, he created La Belle and Le Beau. Born from JPG Classic and Le Mâle, but as butt-naked as their first day in this world.
And they’re not even cold, those two!
On the third day, he created the most delightful, divine and delectable
On the fourth day he rested. In his garden, the party was in full swing. Everyone was in the mood for discovery, adventure; of themselves and each other. And it smelled (al)most divine!
Jean-Paul Gaultier created the bottle of La Belle – and the bottle
appeared. In the shape of a woman’s bust. It was red dipped in pink and spoke of modesty as well as the most lascivious licentiousness. Around the neck, gold roses formed a necklace, a modest covering that serves only as an invitation to a final and temptation-filled unveiling …
Then, Jean-Paul Gaultier created the bottle of Le Beau and the bottle
In the shape of a naked chest. It was green, and it shimmered.
A leaf of a vine, in gold, carefully placed where the eyes might linger.
Jean-Paul Gaultier looked at the exquisite busts and exclaimed:
“These two were made to lead us into temptation!” And they were.
Jean-Paul Gaultier created the casing of La Belle, and the case appeared
in the garden. It was the softest red, almost almond, and amongst the foliage of this very modern Eden, matched with everything. Its gold letters
gleamed, and it was oh-so-tempting to touch the fruit, – and it wasn’t
Jean-Paul Gaultier created the casing for Le Beau, and the case appeared
at the foot of a bush. It was emerald green, so dark, reminding us of
all that is lush in this world. Its golden letters glimmering like the
honey of original desire.
Jean-Paul Gaultier looked at the two provocative, sexy cases, and said:
“Presentation is everything – and nothing!”
And it was.
Jean-Paul Gaultier opened the case of La Belle, took the bottle, and
inhaled deeply the essence of the perfume.
It smelled of oriental vanilla, but vanilla so fresh, it quenched the
soul. He could also identify vetiver; where the miraculous smell of fruit, a pear, was clearly pointing.
Jean-Paul Gaultier opened Beau’s case and, closing his eyes, inhaled
(no denials here). The smell of coconut wood-inspired a profound desire
to relax, while the bergamot and the tonka bean whispered to him that
lounging was the most refreshing of sins.
Jean-Paul Gaultier inhaled both perfumes together and declared: “They
go well together. Forever and ever.” And thus a world was created.
Quentin Bisch and Sonia Constant teleported themselves to Gaultier’s
garden. As is their way, they emerged themselves into this strange and soothing
exotic world. These two, who love to explore the world and who know it
so well, came back mesmerized by The New Land, with a special place in
their heart for La Belle and Le Beau. And as we know, the heart is
never far from the nose.
