Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Intense Perfume

Continuing looking through my old images, I realised I didn't review the perfume that Adam bought me for our Anniversary at the beginning of October.
I had a sample of this perfume a while ago, and really liked it, so was very happy when Adam gave me a bottle of it! Classique Intense is described as having a "dazzling sensuality" and being a new "radiant oriental floral fragrance" and I absolutely love it.
To understand different scents, it is important to break them down into levels: the top notes are the ones which are recognised immediately when the perfume has been sprayed however they are also the quickest to evaporate. The heart notes (middle notes) come into play once the top notes have worn off, as they last much longer, these scents are usually pleasant and well rounded, able to blend with the top and base notes. The base notes leave a lasting impression, when everything else has worn off, they also mingle with the heart notes to make the body of the scent. Classique Intense has top notes of Pomegranate and Tiare flower, heart notes of Jasmine, orange blossom and rose, and base notes of patchouli and vanilla. 
This is a heavy perfume, and you definitely only need a couple of quirts to make an impression, but it is perfect for a night out, or a romantic dinner, when you want to make an impression. I was given this as a gift set, and it came with the matching body lotion - which I like to use more for everyday - it leaves a trace of the scent but it isn't overpowering - much more suitable for work!
Have you used this perfume? What do you think?
Lots of love

  1. Love the bottle! I'm really into perfume at the moment, and keep adding new ones to my collection - this sounds like it smells awesome!

    1. I absolutely love this bottle too! It looks so pretty in my collection! x

  2. I've never tried this intense version - is it the same as the regular classique just stronger? If it is I'd love it because JPG classique is my all time favourite, signature scent!

    1. It is similar and they both have hints of vanilla, but the Jasmine makes it quite different, and whereas Classique uses Rose as a top note, this has a much more fruity oriental scent :) x
