About JPG Perfume

Welcome to JPG Perfume, a website dedicated to showcasing Jean Paul Gaultier Classique perfume special editions and bottles.

I’m a long-time collector of Jean Paul Gaultier Classique bottles. I bought my first when I was a student. It wasn’t the standard scent, but the first summer edition, which caught my eye as I was walking through a department store.

Even though I had little money to spare, I had to have it. I’d been captivated by the intricate tattoo-style pattern that served as a lace-like printed corset over the bottle. Even more by the tin can it came in, covered by the delicate filigree. I was unaware that this would be the start of a lifetime obsession.

To Mr Gaultier, should you ever come across this site, please be aware that this is an homage to the fragrance you created and the wonderful designs of bottles thereafter and no infringement of copyright is intended.

    I share your passion for these bottles. When I find a new one I get quite a rush. Looking at them makes me happy. I have a special display area in my home for them but I fear it soon will not be large enough. I made the decision right from the beginning to only collect the women’s fragrances and also only 100ml. I think if I had not done that it just would have been too much. Before I became a collector I seem to recall there was a bottle that had a black leather vest on it. There was a male and female one. I have never been able to find it or anything about it, photo etc. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Perhaps my recollection is mistaken.

      That sounds like a good decision and one I probably should have made! Black leather not ringing a bell but I’ll look out for it. I have a black rubber purse spray? Will upload soon.

    Very informative site…well done and thank you. I have commented on your Classique Pop-up Christmas Tree as I have that one and also the Fragile one (Insert smug smiley).
    Many moons ago I had a bottle of Fragile that came as a gift set, it was presented on a Velvet covered Cardboard with open pockets on it that was also used as a bag. I used it until it fell to bits….I was young and stupid…but I remember it very fondly. In my opinion, nothing beats the Fragile bottle for design. Aside from this my next favourite is an old bottle of Monsoon Wild Lagoon by Coty…like a little walnut top. I’m so jealous I wasn’t born with creative genes like some.
