In 2016, two new Jean Paul Gaultier limited editions are being introduced in the summery format of Eau Fraiche. The new releases are inspired by the popular characters from comics and cartoons; Popeye the Sailor Man, created by Elzie Crisler Segar in 1929, adorns the Le Male Eau Fraîche edition, while the face of Classique Eau Fraîche is Betty Boop, created in 1930 by Max Fleischer.
The scent of a bouquet of white flowers, good enough to eat, of the new Classique Eau Fraîche Limited Edition Betty Boop takes you to the extravagant world of Jean Paul Gaultier. The composition opens with lemon sorbet, ginger and sugar cane juice. Its floral heart includes exotic tiara, jasmine and orange blossom. The base features warm notes of vanilla, musk and neo-labdanum. Betty Boop is shown as a cabaret dancer – lustful, voluptuous and a sexy femme fatale of free spirit.
Le Male Eau Fraîche Limited Edition Popeye is an extremely masculine scent, exciting and sexy portraying the power of the sailor. Mixed clean and fresh notes with the base made of sweet vanilla have been announced as the perfect ingredients for a strong, charming man. The freshness of neroli, mint and aldehydes in the top lead to the heart of sage and Sclarene molecule (dry wood notes of clary sage, woods and ambrox). The base ends with sweet and warm aromas of vanilla, tonka bean and sandalwood. Popeye is shown in the classic striped Gaultier tee-shirt.
