The scent : 8.5/10 Bottle: 8/10 Sillage: 2/10 Projection: 1/10 Overall: 3.5/10 (very weak projection) Puig 2017 version smells so so good. I still remember when I was 12-13yo (I'm 25yo) when my older brother came home smelling like Le Male. The hubby wears this and I just want to bury my head in his chest and cuddle and forget about everything. Oftentimes I find it hard to believe that this 22 year old sexiness in a bottle still has the cojones to rival some of the newer fragrance releases flooding the market(some of which IMHO are certainly a joke worth talking about, or not).
Yes it is a best seller at Sephora, Nordstrom since 1995 but still the most unique beautiful clean sexiest sensual sexual fragrance. Master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian hit a home run with this one, and I cannot help but praise the contemporaneity in the way the notes in JPG Le Male are crossbred to create an oozing aura packed with reminiscence, awe, and comfort.
I now can see why this is so popular, little syntetic thou Longevity is very good but sillage is average, Body kouros gives me more sillage and longevity. LOL Planing to layer it with BK and Lolita Lempicka au masculin and see what comes out.
*Review 200ML 2016 Batch formulation* Scent: 8.5/10* Longevity: 10/10 (4 sprays) Projection/sillage: 2/10 (4 sprays) Versatile: 7.5/10* _________________________ Total: 7* I owned a bottle from 2006 and it ran out last year so I got a new one and damn what a difference.
well good thing its fall its time to rock it again.
And then I come here to fragrantica to see several people reporting on the new powerful reformulation.
I am going to get myself this years reformulation, as I am now quite sure that the boy wore it, it was so powerful I kept remembering it like I was still smelling it throughout the day.
But this surely can't be the Le Male that is sold today, the boy might have gotten the old reformulation from dad or uncle, I said to myself.
Lucky kid is wearing a cologne that I would be prepared to pay several times more than the knockoff reformulations I can get in stores nowdays.
