The Beautiful......
....so is the name of this 2019 fragrance from the house of Jean Paul Gaultier.

The bottle reminds me a little of Marvel comic heroes. Something artificial heroic. Can be done. I like the look. The fig leaf in front of the court of the Männeken seems a little amusing, I consider that the other bottles have always stood well without and still do. It fits from the optics, however, well to the spray head.
The deep blue-green content reminds me of when you go from the bright sandy beach further and further to the sea, until you should start swimming movements. When the light taint of the sand gets more and more lost in the depth of the water, the Clear sky and the sun with its irradiation give the water its color.
It looks like a vacation.
Interesting also, if you turn the bottle the color changes partially into a purple tone.

And then comes the fragrance. Le Beau reminds of holiday mood. Beautiful soft sandy beach. Water as far as the eye can see. Palm trees waving in the gentle breeze. And off we go.
Le Beau is a little lighter in orientation than, for example, the Ultra Male and at the same time more enduring than the classic Le Male. At first, the basic DNA seems identical to the Ultra Male. Earthy, spicy. Just a little less heavy. The spiciness has been reduced and better balanced. This works very well for the fragrance. And instead of the gaudy candied pear, there's a coconut-pineapple pairing here. Like pineapple? Yes. Pineapple.
I know, the fragrance pyramid was kept spartanly small once again. Unfortunately, we can not take much from it. Denoch, I smell definitely pineapple to the coconut. Recently, I had the Batida de Coco. Today, I'm describing the Pina Colada, it seems. Le Beau is very good for warmer days. The sun-beach feeling just comes across as sucky. I can imagine the scent just as well for colder days, when you're longing for the beautiful holiday beach from the tryte dripping weather. Above all, I really like the fact that the top notes don't clash with the heart and base notes this time, as is the case with Ultra Male - at least to my mind. The concept of combining fruity top notes with the spicy middle and earthy base has clearly worked here.
Now I'm quite aware that Ultra Male should hit it. Eau de Toilette Intense. Just be ultra. I understand that, of course. And the concept itself was honestly very good from there. The concept. The execution was well intentioned there too. Earthy and spicy. I like that anyway. No question about it. The candied pear, that hasn't been around much, and still isn't. Especially pear. Well.

Then in 2019, Quentin Bisch, not much later also the nose behind Le Parfum, took on the Ultra formula and refined it. Le Beau no longer seems rough. The smoothness that now heart and base to grund lies, owes Le Beau the beautiful rounded fragrance image. There the southern fruit chords fit in, as if in a perfectly formed for it bowl.
That's when I imagine that the pear could come back. That one, however, has made its way to Le Beau's counterpart. Namely to the La Belle. ;-)

In general, I find Le Beau very successful. And for an EDT surprisingly long-lasting. Especially with the background that he does not so reinhaut as Ultra Male, which in turn somehow does not want to stick to me so long. This one goes along perceptibly for 6 hours and then retreats quite comfortably. But even then he is still perceptible for a while skin.

For me, Le Beau is the best everyday Le Male so far. Finely tuned. Sun in the tank. Good weather mood, no matter what the day brings. Le Beau should, in my opinion, the classic Le Male have long since replaced without problems, and the Ultra Male presented like a ballerina in the dough coat.
Well that was now a little strongly applied. I just love this Le Beau. The summer creeps slowly yes right from the front. So nothing with creeping in the actual sense. In contrast, the weather behaves in the evening still squeamish. But even there Le Beau works without problems.
May this formula remain with us for a long time.

With kind regards

Coconut
A great sweet fragrance that smells like coconut. Since I am a fan of coconut, this is exactly the right thing for me. You should not underestimate the fragrance but the first time you spray the coconut scent comes out easily if he has but the scent is somewhat sweeter you should not dose too much of it. Durability and sillage is good

The beautiful one probably fits in the Caribbean
Who has the coconut,who has the coconut who has stolen the coconut?
Would times say the good Mr. Gaultier.
This fragrance in the summer {if again possible} at a beautiful beach bar at 27Grad and up.Then the good fragrance will also come to the fore properly and is rounded off with certainty by compliments.

The Laid-Back Seducer
"Le Beau" by Jean Paul Gaultier is a simple but alluring release: It's all about bergamot, coconut shell and tonka bean... And even the bergamot is just a little bit to introduce and balance the scent.

. So not much olfactory complexity here (apparently), although - IMO - it has an original and genial vibe. It's a very well made fragrance.

Sometimes simplicity is all you need to wear, and here you have a very nice charming scent with a little wink of wizardry.

- Longevity & Projection: The performance of this release is OK, about 6 to 8 hours with average projection first (+1h) and moderate later.

- Occasions & Mood: For me it's best on warm days, but not too hot (22° - 27° C): Warm spring & fall afternoons and refreshing summer sunsets.

Good for dates and hangouts with friends; chill, casual..."Le Beau" has a comfy tropical vibe that fits very well on these occasions.

- Conclusion: An easy, sweet and tropical-woody scent. Very cozy and a prominent seducer.

Querelle de Brest In Gold Mise
First, the bottle. The iconic but more sculpted and angular shape of a barechested torso compared to previous editions is the same already used for Le Mâle Essence de Parfum, here the bush is covered with a golden vine leaf. The juice inside is emerald green, so vicious, so luscious. The sailor Querelle from Brest is now Adam in the Garden of Gaultier. Subsequently, the perfume. If you have never smelt it, you will be pleasantly surprised because it smells completely different from the other Le Mâle flankers. Although Le Beau follows the trend of the 21st century, it doesn't even feel like any of its rivals.

Here and across the web, only three main notes are mentioned: bergamot, coconut, and tonka bean. However, I doubt they are the only notes present, and there is undoubtedly much more to Le Beau than the notes listed, let's see. This is heavy for cutting herbs like lavender, sage, perhaps patchouli. The iris root is most likely present since ALPHA-ISOMETHYL IONONE is listed in the ingredients, and I perceive a powdery nuance.

The nutty-fresh coconut note is made very nicely and unabashedly likens the crispy wafer shell covered with coconut flakes of the Ferrero's Raffaello pralines. These fluffy, sweet candies combine sugar and coconut to heavenly effect. The sweetness and creaminess come from the velvety smooth cream inside. A pure pleasure that brings an unexpected touch of love and affection straightforward to your heart. The bergamot adds a right bit of powderiness and makes the opening so sensual, gourmand, enticing. Don't think of exotic suntan lotion or piña colada long drink smell. This is not the hot coconut milk by any means, this is coconut woods, which has the coconut vibe but woodier, darker, smoother, and creamier but bitter. The opening is deep, penetrating, intoxicating.

As it quiets down, at the heart, no orange blossom or spices like Le Mâle but rather a note of coconut wood in the background. Refined, not dominant yet still present, which inspires a profound desire to relax. As I anticipated, I surmise a bit of aromatic lavender and sage are present. More, there is a floral nuance in the heart, and I won't be surprised if a sweet floral rose-like or better geranium-like note is included. That floral accent is intertwined with a spicy emphasis, soothing, sweet, candy, like red hots cinnamon, which add a bit of spiciness without distracting from the main accords. Well, when I wrote that Le Beau doesn't smell like any other perfume, I was too hasty and told you a taradiddle. I catch a nuance that is present in Abercrombie & Fitch SoCal, the same coconut vibe, especially after half an hour or so.

The tonka here is sweet, but roasted, reminiscent of toffee, marzipan, vanillic, which gives it an aroma woodier and not akin to bubblegum. The more the dry down approaches, the more it turns woody. If you are familiar with modern amber interpretation, you will recognize a touch of synthetic amber in here. Not the overused ambroxan, but a rarer amberwood, which has less sweetness but more woodiness and muskiness respect to ambrox. After an hour, you are left with tonka sweetness and just a slight hint of coconut for another hour. After the two-hour mark, it's a pure skin scent, some bittersweetness that lasts another 2 hours on the skin. A dirty note lingers in the air, modern and leathery white patchouli presumably.

On my skin, the sillage and projection are moderate, a couple of hours before it turns into a skin scent, however, the longevity is excellent, several hours. The overall sweetness makes me reach for it during Spring and Fall seasons, a bit too light for Winter, but definitely too strong for Summer. I would rock it daily in leisure time, and nightly for clubbing, perhaps too risky for the office.

The review is based upon a 125ml bottle I own and received as a 2019 Xmas gift.

Stay well; stay healthy.

After an hour, it smells like sweat...
In itself, I found the scent very beautiful. It reminded me of afternoons on the beach, warm and with a pina colada in my hand. It gets problematic after an hour. I always apply my scents after showering and after an hour I smelled more like sweat. But not the stench of sweat after exercise, but more the stench after not showering for three days and trying to cover the stench with a fresh scent. Maybe he just reacts badly to my body scent. No idea. Anyway, my girlfriend said I stink. Pity about the idea of the fragrance. The performance ruins everything.

I’ll admit I’m a JPG fan;
And this one didn’t disappoint me, personally. I DO get an Eros-esque vibe (the original, not the flame), but as time progresses, it becomes more of its own flavor. I don’t really get much of the coconut... I mean it’s there, but it’s not the traditional, main stream, sweet “pina colada feeling” coconut most would expect; it smells more like a fresh green coconut does, a lighter, not quite so sweet feel (if you’ve had fresh coconut and/or coconut “milk” right out of the shell, you’ll know what I mean; it’s a very faint version of the sweet coconut smell) I think there’s more of a light, slightly Woody, sweet tonka feel. The opening has a little citrus pinch to it, and from there it rapidly goes into it’s sweetness. Some people say they can detect the “JPG DNA” in this, but it doesn’t really kick out the Le Male feel in my opinion. If any similarity is there, I think it’d be to the Le Male Essence EDP base note, and that would be a VERY faint similarity.

Personally it fades away to my own nose after about 2 hours or so, but my wife can detect it a good 8 hours after applying. Projection doesn’t bring a huge radius; maybe a 2ft radius for the first 2hrs or so, and it leaves a pretty good trail in sillage. I really enjoy the scent, as does my wife. She tends to enjoy the Eros-esque style of fragrance. I’m happy with this purchase; I’ve worn it for a few days and it does leave a nice impression on females who encounter it; it didn’t take long to snag a compliment.

"Dubai Walk at Jumeirah Beach" in the nose
Oriental fragrance that strongly reminds me of the Jumeirah Walk fragrances in Dubai. Pleasantly intense, initially thought of oud but that seems to be the bergamot? I am unfortunately no connoisseur of the individual fragrance oils but in any case a good mixture of sweet and woody-herb. I wasn't actually thinking about coconut. A lot of people write something about summer scent here. I think this fragrance is more for the winter because it is a little heavier. Fresh clothes are more suitable for the summer. Le Beau lasts long, the heart and base notes are very pleasant and rise into the nose with every movement. For me a clearly better fragrance compared to Le Male. Also reminiscent of the oriental Le Gemme series by Bvlgari. I have a very similar one in mind. Anyone who likes oriental fragrances, TF Oud Wood etc. will most probably like this fragrance.

A treat
Here in the coal pot the remark has: "You look delicious ! two different meanings.
Either - you look good, though - or you look worn out, though.
You have to hear out the subtle differences in emphasis.

Le Beau is delicious in a positive sense.

He is not a fat gourmand - but still very appetizing.

The tonka bean is round and sweetish, but experiences freshness and lightness through the bergamot.
The woods are also soft and discreet.

A very attractive scent, which I feel as unisex.

It is suitable for the workplace and for leisure time - and I don't see any age limit either.

A good all-rounder with " Schmiegecharakter " - which is really " beau ".

The temptation of Adam
Eva woke up again in paradise. She opened her eyes and, as always, was amazed by the beauty of the plants and animals. She was a perfect adult woman, and totally aware of her destiny as the mother of humanity. She looked around and did not see Adam. Something told her that she had to meet again that being who would complete her. Safely and decisively she started walking and crossed the forest guided by her instinct. She suddenly stopped, dazzled by the beauty of the ocean in front of her. The immense blue water ended at the sandy shore golden line. Here and there some coconut trees grew as if marking the border between the green and the blue. Sleeping under one of the coconut palms was Adam, virile and beautiful as she remembered him. She got closer ... the picture was perfect but something was bothering her ... something that did not combine with that idyllic scene. Instead of an animal and masculine smell, Adam emanated a disturbing, intense, fresh and sweet aroma, that overlapped the smell of the fallen coconuts around him. It was only then that she noticed that flask filled with a blue elixir tumbled next to Adam's sleeping body. A chill ran through her. She realized that his companion had fallen into temptation and splashed the blue potion all over his body. The divine prohibition against altering their natural human condition was worthless, and had been broken. Adam now smelled of spices and coconut water, and nothing would ever be as it was before.

By today's evening, my Neroli based EdT had long disappeared. As I passed by Séphora, I saw Gaultier's "Le Beau", also known locally as the "Adam with the Leaf" bottle. I confess that I liked that flask, showing a masculine silhouette just covered with a leaf, standing alone on the store's main window display.
A doubt aroused to my mind - "Why not? I don't need to die stupid!" ... and I passed to the action. I landed the shopping bags on the floor and moved quietly so that I would not be assaulted by the sales girls in uniform patrolling behind and in front of the shop counters.
I sprayed my first (and last) three "Le Beau" whiffs on my arm and returned to the mall corridors. - "The bottle is pretty enough, so let's now see about the juice inside", thought I ... A ton of piñacolada syrup together with a spicy heavy sweetness entered in my nose. In my arm that sweetness stick like glue and I was not at ease with that girl scent emanating from my skin. The people passing by looked at me as if I was in need of a clean shower after bathing in a fruit cocktail. I was totally out of my comfort zone.
After two repenting thoughts and fifty meters down the corridor, I experienced a third deep and final sniff on my arm. I couldn't help to whisper between my teeth - "I should have died stupid after all !!!". I am the sort of person that cannot stand an ultra synthetic coconut note, not even in a shower gel. - "What a generic syrup!!!". I could only sense a strong vibe of an Axe deodorant tropical scent.
The problem was easy enough to solve. While seeing a Zara shop entrance at a distance, I went into the shopping mall toilet and washed the fragrant arm twice. The fragrance was easy to wash even if recently applied. Then I went into the Zara store to compensate my guinea pig upper limb. I applied three sprays from a S4and4lw00d tester on display at the fragrance counter. Only then I left the Zara store, happy as a child and thinking that I was smelling very manly again.

PS - Supporters of JPG perfumes please forgive me the . I am one of those men who still uses "Le Male" from time to time, and I also do like "Le Male Essence" as well. But "Le Beau" is really very generic and synthetic for my nose.

After a short fresh-citric opening, this tropical Summer fragrance quickly settles to a sweet synthetic creamy-woody base. Good performance.
