“Classique” fragrance by Jean Paul Gaultier

with 4 comments

The world-famous designer created this perfume in 1993.  The distinctive bottle was first used for the “Classique” fragrance and was inspired by the iconic corset created by Jean Paul for the singer Madonna.  The perfume is packaged in a can rather than the usual cardboard box which adds to its uniqueness.  Subsequent variations to the design of the bottle have been influenced by Jean Paul Gaultier’s clothing collection of  that year.

  1. I love the Jean Paul Gaultier bottles and think it’s great that they keep the well-known style but adapt it each time a new fragrance is launched. I know these bottles will be around for a long time!

    When I think of great perfume bottle design this is the first that comes to mind. I also think of the Kenzo and Issey Miyake bottles- very simple but look very sleek and classic on your dressing table!

  2. I personally love Marc Jacobs designs, his isn’t the bottle so much but more the lid design (daisy for example), something so simple yet so different.

  3. What I think makes a great perfume bottle design is a bottle that becomes an iconic representation of the brand.

    The Jean Paul perfume bottle is so iconic I doubt it even needs ‘Jean Paul’ to be written any where on it for people to know the brand.

    I think this is the same for perfumes such as J.Lo Glow and J’adore Christian Dior. I love Kate Moss-Vintage for its bottle design too.
