A surge of solidarity with the new Le Mâle Pride by Jean-Paul Gaultier
However, this is precisely what it is about in its new perfume. In 2020, Jean-Paul Gaultier is reinventing his iconic Le Mâle fragrance, making it Le Mâle Pride. As its name suggests, it is a nod to the iconic Gay Pride, a major party for the homosexual community. So what about this new essence in homage to the LGBT cause?
Male Pride: Jean-Paul Gauthier loudly supports homosexuals
It’s no secret from now on: the couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier is indeed homosexual. “I understood very early on that I preferred boys, seeing Romeo and Juliet by Franco Zeffirelli. It’s true that I was as attracted to Olivia Hussey as I was to Leonard Whiting, he says. But he was causing me more things. There’s also this scene in The Fury of Living where James Dean and another actor roll around on the floor. I’ve always had trouble seeing it as a fight, ”explains Jean-Paul Gaultier with humor. Moreover, he does not hesitate to support this cause and wants to be the fervent defender of this motto: “freedom, equality and frivolity”! However, this is precisely what her niche fragrance evokes. Proof, The Male carries on him the rainbow flag of the homosexual community, LGBT symbol since 1978. Its flamboyant colors replace the famous Jean-Paul Gaultier sailor shirt and come to rest like a T-shirt on its bust-shaped bottle. The rainbow flag is displayed as a token of tolerance, equality and peace. Here, it is also invited on the packaging of Jean-Paul Gaultier, which as always takes the form of a tin can. With Le Mâle Pride, color is omnipresent, as is cheerfulness! it is also featured on the packaging of Jean-Paul Gaultier, which as always takes the form of a tin can.

The Male Pride changes its visual but not its fragrance
If Le Mâle Pride offers itself a new look, its fragrance, on the other hand, remains exactly the same as before. It must be said that the essence of Jean-Paul Gaultier manages to cross the decades without ever taking a wrinkle. Designed in 1995, this juice is still modern and unconventional, revealing an intense and Mediterranean freshness of mint and lavender. Here, everything is first refreshed with bergamot, while illuminated by orange blossom. Then, spices such as cumin, cinnamon or cardamom add more flavor to the whole. Little by little, Le Mâle Pride reveals all its sensuality in a suave breath of vanilla and musk. Its masculinity is revealed in a woody trail of tonka bean, cedar and sandalwood.
