Classique, the first fragrance by Jean Paul Gaultier, is celebrating its twentieth anniversary.
A limited edition bottle has launched in celebration, which admires the beautiful structure of the classic fragrance.
Jean Paul Gaultier, like most fashion designers, has expressed and continues to express his vision of femininity and feminine seduction. His own vision is unique, singular and powerful; a true echo of the way society is evolving. He showcases and enhances women, drawing on classic and universal icons of feminine seduction (the tomboy, the femme fatale, etc.) which he uses to his advantage.
The perfume made its first appearance in 1993 in a body-shaped bottle with full curves strapped into a metal corset and was designed in the boudoir scent tradition. The triumphant glass sculpture with sensual curves, and a woman’s body to hold in your hands. This iconic bust, the standard bearer for Jean Paul Gaultier, does not reveal its nudity. The bottle wears a corset to remind us that this is indeed a matter of seduction and power.
For 20 years, Jean Paul Gaultier has enjoyed dressing his Classique bottle with humour and elegance. With summer variations or festive Christmas designs, these corsets are always eagerly awaited by collectors. Among the most memorable is the corset sheathed in black velvet from 1998, which echoed the Haute Couture collection from the summer of the same year. The orange Bien Roulé corset in 2005 recalled the Barbès collection from Autumn-Winter 1984-1985. The bottle has been decorated in many ways with tattoos, embroidery and more, and is always molded with the same delicate touch as an Haute Couture Jean Paul Gaultier gown.
