Jean Paul Gaultier
Jean Paul Gaultier La Belle Le Parfum Intense was released in 2021, created by Quentin Bisch and Sonia Constant. An ambery vanilla, it has notes of amber, pear, tonka bean, jasmine and vanilla.
From the brand - "In Gaultier's Garden, where all sins are permitted. The new original woman, La Belle Le Parfum, heightens her seduction with an addictive sensuality. A curvaceous dark red forbidden fruit for more intensity, its femininity is embellished by a necklace of gold roses. Under the golden sun and lush vegetation, her Lusciously Intense Amber Eau de Parfum intoxicates the senses with elegance. Yield to temptation!"
Fragrantica - "Heavenly! Succulent dessert pear, followed by swoon-worthy tonka and jasmine on a bed of creamy-soft vanilla. *So* sensual, I almost can't believe it (typically only masculine-leaning scents make me feel the type of "hubba hubba" way this one does). It's heady enough to seem destined for autumn/winter nights, but La Belle Le Parfum's disarmingly seductive power makes it feel appropriate (dare I say mandatory?) for sexy-cool summer evenings as well. An outright masterpiece on JPG's part."
Fragrantica - "Really love this one, this lasts so much longer on my skin then the original edp I am still wearing this in the summer here in the uk and it still works. My husband likes this one on me too so it's a winner. Update: men live this one I've been stopped several times by men and asked what perfume I'm wearing."
Fragrantica - "This is la belle's Older, more mature -and sexier- sister.. two worlds apart.. They're both gorgeous. However, one's innocent and the other is playful, sexy and mischievous!! La belle le parfum opens up with straight up sweet and dense carmalized pear, vanilla and tonka.. no jasmine at all. Pear, vanilla and tonka at their finest form! It's lovely in cooler weather and has absolutely incredible sillage and longevity!"
Fragrantica - "Oh my god, this is delicious. It smells exactly like the pear pie I made a while ago. Smells like a warm, slightly cinnamony pear pie. Truly. I frivolously tried it not thinking much of it, but then sniffed my wrist all day so went back to sniff again. It has a delicious cinnamon tonka sugary dry down. I don’t know exactly where I’m getting cinnamon, maybe it’s the warm pear."
Fragrantica - "Le Parfum is a very autumnul, warm and sweet scent. It smells like a decadent dessert made of cooked pears infused with vanilla and spices. The very minimal notes list doesn't do it justice. Pear, vanilla and tonka are obvious, and there might also be some jasmine in this, but I definitely get some spicy I can't quite put my finger on and a sultry balsamic base that really shines after the fragrance has dried down. And then it lasts and lasts and lasts."
Fragrantica - "I sprayed this on a strip in David Jones yesterday, and right there , in front of everyone I smelled it and my reaction was "Damn!..that's amazing!" This is freakin delicious, strong, velvery, sweet and rich. If burgundy had a smell this would be it. It starts spicy with a strong cherry note and something like cinnamon. Dries down a thick boozy vanilla with cherry still, with a hint of hazelnuts."
