My FAVE scent atm
This starts out almost too sweet, but the mid note is an addictive bliss that carries for a long time, intoxicating anyone who gets trapped in the sillage web you leave behind. Women LOVE this one.

The Ultra Man or also the Ultra Woman
A fragrance, which in my opinion could have been marketed as unisex without problems.

The fragrance itself is present from the first moment with its full sweetness. In my opinion he has nothing to do with his relative Le Male, except for the sweetness itself.
It develops slightly fruity so that the pear can also be filtered out.

The durability is very good - without problems +8 hours I perceive it on myself, on the clothes he probably keeps forever.

The Sillage is in any case above average strong, not completely room-filling, but it goes into the 1-2 meters range.

The bottle is a classic, and you don't have to say too much about it < br />
Target group are definitely young people under 30. I find it just inappropriate from then on, because you simply notice this youthful daredevil image in this fragrance.

My conclusion:
In the club and in winter in my opinion very well without problems wearable - For the price a buy recommendation to all, which like sweet smells from the mainstream rail (1 million, Le Male, Invictus etc.) But caution - to some it could be a touch too feminine.

Ultra Male=Sweet Vanilla and Cinnamon Bomb
SOTD (Scent Of The Day): Jean Paul Gaultier Ultra Male: As of 02/02/19

I do love sweet scents/fragrances but not overly sweet, this just punches my nose with an uppercut of vanilla, pear, cinnamon, lavender and amber with the hint of bergamot, and lemon. That Vanilla and Cinnamon brings the sweetness of this fragrance. I think this should just replaced Le Male as a clubbing fragrance period. It projects like a boss, compliments galore and a beastly longevity and performance. Best suited for fall and winter nights, not just for clubbing, a date night and causal night out as well. Is a must have.

Sweet soap?
The opening of this perfume for me was just soapy. After a while a sweet smell started to take over and I understood where the hype comes from. I let my girlfriend smell it and she confirmed my findings. She liked the sweet smell though....

it shouldn’t work but it totally does
Usually I’m not into sweet fragrances, yes I do enjoy an ocasional vanilla/tonka one as muchas the next guy but that’s as far as I go with sweetness. Ultra Male dares turn sweetness up to 11 which should make this annoyingly sweet and unwearable but it somehow works perfectly.

Seductive, daring and unique, the ultimate clubbing fragrance. My girlfriend gave it to me as a birthday present and was it a good one! I used it for dinner that same day and it was a total hit.

Ultra Male is spicy, minty and sweet altogether and the cherry on top is pear. This fragrance is certainly not for everyone but it works for me and it makes my Top 5
All i can say is that this perfume is awsome and its one of the very few perfumes that didnt change its smell (very much) on my skin ,because my ph is pretty low . I dont see it as a just for club perfume as some people do

The Ultra man is no Casanova!
At the end of 2018 I dared to approach the fragrance palette of JPG and of course started with the classic and founder of this series of beautiful flacons.
The last in the bunch and my collection. was the very one in dark tones and with the ultimate claim of masculinity in the title. In addition to Essence, which is one year younger, the dark sailor is a much-anticipated bottle on the shelves of all perfumeries. At the same time, he claims to address a young target group, to which I also count myself. He is preceded by the reputation of a party scent, sometimes even a Casanova water. At least the first one I would like to contradict, the dark sailor already seems seductive and enormously attractive to me, but he doesn't scream for attention but rather for intimacy. It surrounds the wearer with an extremely sweet aura, fresh in the first minutes, then heavier, which invites the wearer to approach it in order to be able to sense the depth structure of the fragrance.
The greater the distance at which the fragrance is perceived, the more one-dimensional it appears. As you get closer, however, other nuances reveal themselves - spices, woods and vanilla come to the fore - creating a homely atmosphere. From a distance I always sniff the sweetness of an overripe pear, behind whose façade the depth of the entire bouquet reveals itself. After a good hour, the light-fleshed sweetness of the pear becomes darker than the pod of a vanilla. The spicy components help to create more depth.
His territory is - in my opinion - less the dance floors of clubs or overcrowded events, because he can't set a counterpoint in a sweating, agitated crowd and doesn't stand out. I like to wear it alone in a feel-good atmosphere with a good book on the couch. However, the fragrance finds its purpose in one-to-one situations in which you want to cast a spell over your female counterpart. For other men, contrary to its martial double sentence "Ultra", the fragrance is more feminine and androgynous. For younger women, it conveys closeness, security and self-confidence. The wearer also needs the latter if he does not want to appear superficial with a very sweet, extremely seductive scent.
Its season is definitely autumn and winter. Its time of day is darkness, in which it would also be wearable on fresh spring and summer nights. However, more suitable variants are available here.
The outfit to be combined is, as with the entire "Le Male series", a well-fitting shirt or polo with an optional jacket, here I prefer dark blue as the basic colour. Within your own four walls, as a pure feel-good fragrance, it can also be combined well with a "favourite piece" (sweater, hoodie). The durability and Sillage are neat, but I don't think they are outstanding. After two hours it gets very close to my body, which is why I don't see it as a party scent. In fact, it unfolds almost better on clothing than on skin, because then even after a day a super pleasant essence of the base notes is still perceptible.
In addition to the more variable, since fresher original, an ideal addition to the range. For young and young-at-heart perfumers with enough self-confidence to create an ultra sweet fragrance, a rewarding investment. I will wear it to Christmas Eve tonight because the fragrance supports the feel-good factor in the family circle. Anyone who wants to wear the fragrance does not become an ultra-man in the sense of a muscular, tough Herakles, as the bottle suggests, but a modern, sensual, approachable man who must radiate self-confidence!

The young man in the club
Through so many positive experiences of others, I have also become aware of the fragrance. Test Eiso!

On my skin the scent is very sweet but also slightly spicy, difficult to describe. Anyway, it smells so artificial. But there are already many comments on the fragrance:-).

In my opinion the scent is unique, which I always prefer or think is good.

But to me the smell does not fit personally at all or not well. I associate the scent with a 20 year old young man who has the intention to get a girl into bed in the next club as soon as possible and that as a routine.
As vocabulary somewhat vulgar but in girls adapting exactly to the situation.

So much for that. I don't want to label the fragrance as bad, but merely as "not suitable" for me personally.

The durability and the Sillage, which move on a good to very good level, are to be rated positive
Who's the scent to now?
That's for everyone to decide for themselves.
In my opinion, this is more for younger people who like to stay in the club, want to perform and see themselves as a traveler in the positive and negative sense.

Fragrance: 6/10
Compliments: no estimation because too little tested. (min. 3 months)
Shelf life: 8 of 10
Sillage: 8 of 10

The stuff is in the first two hours a daredevil through and through, I can not really describe the smell, but he is definitely sweet.after two to 3 hours he loses unfortunately in intensity and sillage, which I actually find very sad.the first 10 minutes after spraying on he is very strong and you also smell a clear fresh out these disappear but with time and the smell becomes warmer and warmer.

First day but liking it.
First time trying this today so this review will not be as detailed as others, not that I have anywhere near as much as experience as many people on here anyway.

The opening is very sweet with a nice dominating pear, complemented by lavender and a small amount of mint which becomes more prominent as the pear dies down. The heart of the fragrance is where the spice comes in with a great cinnamon scent dominating. On the base I get a great mix of vanilla and amber that seems to be lasting a very long time on my skin.

The presentation of this EDT was different to any other fragrance that I had previously purchased. The bottle came sealed inside a large tin cylinder, pop off the bottom of the tin and these sits the male torso shaped bottle held tightly in place on the inside surface, very well presented.

- Longevity: 7-12 hours
- Sillage: Strong
- Wearability: Autumn, Winter, Spring
- Versatility: Clubbing, Nights out. Possibly office & social events if you hold back on sprays.

Nice for clubbing
Performance is very good on this and should last you a full night out with really strong projection. I hear it is quite popular for clubbing, but not as popular as something like Eros or Sauvage so not super unique but not everyone will be wearing it. This is very very sweet though so would only recommend it for playful situations like clubbing. It's good at what it does and is defiantly a crowd pleaser although not my favourite, but I wear it because others will like it.

The clubbing king
If you are a gourmand scents lover you found your masculin top fragrance.
Very enjoyable opening (pear note dominating), development (cinnamon note dominating) and dry down (vanilla note dominating).
Exceptional quality in the componments are the only explanation for the joy you get from the notes composed in a fantastic blending.

No, Ultra Mâle does not last for 24 hours in a row.
But let's be serious. Nobody expects more than 10 hours of longevity in a perfume. There is no practical use for it. If you are a perfume lover, the most natural decision you face every day is "what will I use in the morning?" and "what will I use in the evening?". Most certainly you will use two different fragrances.
In fact, the usable longevity for a normal fragrance is up to 8 hours maximum. And if ("if" in bold) by any reason you require 12 hours longevity from an average EDT without respraying, just apply two sprays per spot in your tshirt or shirt where most EDTs last a lot longer.

Now about Ultra Mâle:
- Opens with a very agreeable fruity (pear), citrusy, freshy and minty scent. (1/2 hour).
- Continues with a fainting sweet pear note and a very agreeable cinnamon becomes dominant (1 hour).
- The dry down reveals a very strong and very lovable gourmand combo of strong vanilla and amber that lasts a lot of time (6 hours in my test with 2 good sprays in the back of my hand)
If you re-spray after 3.1/2 hours the dry down of the first spraying is combined with the opening and middle notes of the re-spray and you get 3~4 hours more of a very acceptable longevity.
- Ulta Mâle is an above average, nice quality spicy gourmand intense EDT available for you to purchase it for a medium~high price.

Let us see what the maths tell us about this intense EDT:
Scent opening: 8.5
Scent dry down: 8.5
Longevity: 8.0 (above average for the existing notes)
Sillage: 8.0 (same as longevity)
Uniqueness: 8.0 (very well designed and blended, a real gem but with alternative very similar fragrances like Zara Gourmand Leather)
Wearability: 8.5 (Winter, Autumn, early Spring; Night and Day)
Versatility: 8.0 (yes but with some moderation to socializing, events, restaurants, and office type of situations; Champion frag in what regards clubbing, night out, bar with friends; very nice for dates and close encounters but be easy on the spray; Not for the gym or any situations where you may sweat)
Compliments: 9.0 (high rate of compliments speacialy from the ladies side)
Quality: 9.0 (my judgement)
Presentation: 9.0 (very nice bottle but similar to all Le Mâle flankers; good sprayer)
Price/Value for money: 6.5 (my 100 ml tester costed € 46.00; The same retailer sells it now for € 59.99)

Overall rating for this fragrance: 8.27/10.00
Less than 7 => avoid it;
between 7 and 8 => above average;
between 8 and 9 => recommended;
equal or bigger than 9 => don't miss it;

Opinion on "Ultra Mâle":
To wear this fragrance is a lot of fun. Most ladies will like your scent and hardly you will find a better scent for clubbing. Similar fragrances include (cheap) Zara Gourmand Leather, and Paco Rabanne Pure XS or Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Black (both more expensive than Gourmand Leather but less expensive than Ultra Mâle).
Blind buy worthy? No! Test it on your skin before any buying decision. It may be too sweet for you.
