Gaultier is a fairly young Maison de Couture in the landscape of parisian fashion. Houses like Dior, YSL or Chanel have been around for ever and it also pre-qualified as classic henceforth classy designers.
|Perfume: Fragile (discontinued) which smells like Iris flower.|
Gaultier had to make his way through the already very crowded world of fashion in Paris. His style is peculiar and iconic in a modern art sort of way.
|Perfume: Classique X|
His name, as given to him by the world fashion and magazines at his beginning sums this idea up: "L'Enfant Terrible de La Mode".
As a student of art and beauty, I am fascinated by his legacy and his style. It is one of these people I genuinely love though I never, nor probably ever will, met him.
|Perfume: Gaultier 2, a unisex fragrance which will be soon discontinued.|
I went through many stages in my life when it comes to clothes or perfumes but I was earnest when it comes to what he did, waiting impatiently for his new collection or fragrance.

He was born in the suburbs in 1952 where he spent his youth. He worked for several prestigious fashion houses. Though his first collection in 1970 was a bust, he kept on trying and became a star with his corsets, sailor style and skirt for men in the 80's.
He started creating perfumes in the 1990's. More than just his craziness within styles, I feel he has something fundamentally classic (no pun with his fragrance). I love the works of the genius creator.

All of the perfumes on the pictures are mine. The first one has been bought more than ten years ago and still has a wonderful scent.
