I laughed...

Merv & Judith found this (I assume) at a duty free store on the way back from England and picked up a bottle for us.

That's Jean Paul Gaultier's "Le Male".

Yeah, it's not new, but somehow it's never had much marketing in the states.

That changed a few weeks ago. We got some magazine (I can't remember which one) that had an advert.

Then we noticed the ad running during Adult Swim. This ad:

The fragrance?

Not bad, actually.

The bottle?

Cute. I love the striped sailor shirt. It's even got a little collar. There's one flaw, though. The bottle designer definitely started with his "Classique" bottle as a template, because it's still got a girl booty. Even bodybuilders don't have glutes that prominent... well, male bodybuilders at least.

Heh, I had this perfume, in exactly this bottle, back in 1991 or thereabouts. Got it as a giftie from one of my exes, the marketing was BIG in germany at the time. Still like the scent. Oh, and regarding bubble butts that bubbly? I know a Staff Sergeant who really does have those, he's a bodybuilder and totally exaggerates (he didn't like it when I called his butt a porno butt :-D)

I have one...the bottle, not the buh...
Well, I'm over 50 so we won't talk about my butt. But, I do have the bottle. I found it in the gutter when I was walking home from the grocery store. Love the little sculpture and it still had some of the fragrance. That was over ten years ago, when I lived in Sunnyvale.

Always wanted to know what the name of the stuff was and yes I saw the commercial. Very stylish. Sort of puts to rest the notion that only women go into wash rooms in groups. :)

I do like the collar ring.

As for the bubble butt, perhaps it's thinkful wishing?

What ever happened to "spray, delay, walk away"? Man, I hope it smells good, because they're all going to smell like it for the next several days!

Agreed about the collar ring.
