John Galliano this spring may be going in a lighter direction with his new Eau de Toilette, but Jean Paul Gaultier is doing the reverse and proposing a darker, more rock n' roll and glamor version of Ma Dame EDT, the original (see also why they initially went for a fresh scent). Those were the natural places the designers could go to following the launches of their perfumes. One started deeper and needs to take a breath of fresh air, the other one came out fresh-smelling and now needs a little depth.
But wait, there is a fashion logic behind the new Ma Dame Eau de Parfum too: like the recently launched Classique X, it is inspired by the Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter 2009/2010 X fashion looks...
The scent, which was developed by Beauté Prestige International (BPI), features notes of black roses made to feel vinyl-like (see Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne for a similar recent vinyl rose idea). This is a throwback to Jean Paul Gaultier's original idea of introducing an artificial nail-polish accord in the top notes of his debut scent Classique (yes, nail-polish addicts, this is your scent!)
Ma Dame EDP has smoldering-sounding notes or black roses, pink pepper, musk, cedar wood, patchouli.
Agyness Deyn continues to rock on the poster of La nouvelle eau de parfum de Gaultier.
The perfume is available in 50ml and 75ml sizes and priced at about €54 and €67.
