While the flower elements give this fragrance a sweet, intoxicating quality like the first hints of spring, its rich, herbaceous notes exude masculinity. Its dry top notes are composed of petit grain leaf, which is derived from the bitter orange tree. The middle notes are made up of neroli, which blends spicy and sweet to end up smelling green like the outdoors after a rain. The base notes are anaromatic mix of chamomile and basil that give the fragrance its masculine tones that work brilliantly with the sweeter initial notes. This long-lasting cologne is perfect for the spring and summer.
This cologne was launched in 2007 by French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. While best known for fashion designs, which he first presented in 1976, he started launching perfumes in 1993. The perfumer behind Fleur Du Male was Francis Kurkdjian.
