JPG Scandal Pour Homme fans, prepare to meet your latest obsession: Scandal Le Parfum for him. It’s a woody-amber tone similar to the original Scandal Pour Homme Eau de Toilette, but it’s a richer and more intense version that I’m sure you will want to try…
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Created by experts in perfumery, Quentin Bisch, Nathalie Cetto and Christophe Raynaud, JPG sets the scene with a layer of geranium petals, which add a subtle aromatic tone that hints at something slightly sweeter beneath the surface. As the fragrance settles, it unveils a vanillary tonka bean note for a layer of warmth and richness before the base of sandalwood adds a long-lasting woodiness.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
The concept behind the original Scandal Pour Homme – a boxing champion – is back for the 2022 Scandal fragrance. JPG’s boxing legend makes his triumphant entrance to cheers from the crowd, oozing sex appeal and sporting prowess as he does so. Just like JPG’s intense Scandal fragrance, he’s ready to pack a punch.
You Will Love This If…
If you loved the original Scandal Pour Homme, then the intense Le Parfum should be on your ‘to try’ list. Not familiar with the original? You’ll enjoy Scandal Pour Homme Le Parfum if you like woody fragrances with a touch of warmth and sweetness.
As a bonus, Scandal Pour Homme Intense is also refillable so that you can enjoy the signature for longer whilst cutting down excess waste.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
As the Eau de Parfum edition of the fan-favourite men’s Scandal fragrance, Scandal Pour Homme Le Parfum shares similarities to the original in the respect that it’s another ambery woody fragrance. But the fragrance is a richer, more intense version that I personally think is even sexier than the original.
It has a similar aromatic, woody, ambery tone but swaps a few notes out to create a scent that stands out in its own right. There’s no clary sage in this version, and the sticky caramel note has gone too. But the original’s vanillary base note of tonka bean gets more attention here as it dominates the heart before introducing a new milky sandalwood base.
Is Scandal Pour Homme Le Parfum Unisex?
Fragrance has no gender to us – as long as you love what you’re wearing, that’s all that matters. As the name suggests, Scandal Pour Homme is a fragrance for men. However, I’d say it has universal appeal due to its delicate sweetness.

What’s The Longevity Like?
Scandal Pour Homme Eau de Parfum is really long-lasting. It lasted a good seven hours when I tried it out on my wrist.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
The iconic Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal for him fragrance bottle is back – including that exuberant crown. This time, the bottle is finished with a midnight black lacquer that lines the inside of the double-walled glass for an even bolder and sexier look. To top it off, the bottle is refillable.
