Jean Paul Gaultier wanted to create a new men’s fragrance that was typically him, new and original. At least two noses were needed to meet this particular challenge, and Olivier Cresp and Annick Menardo (Firmenich) rose to it.

The resulting fragrance is sensual, yet electric, respectful of tradition; it is from haute perfumery that he borrows precious raw materials.


Cedar, patchouli and vetiver combine to create a fragrance of man y layers; the cocoa bean, a gourmand aphrodisiac is paradoxically treated using Firmenich innovation, Nature Print, to add rawness that compliments the sensuality and freshness of the fig leaf.

A Surprising Bottle

A black bottle, with the name in red, like an elegant and impassioned signature…


Deliberately contemporary, the bottle creates a trompe l’oeil effect, revealing both the silhouette of a man in profile and the iconic and the iconic Gaultier torso.

The Advertisements will be fronted by Jon Kortajarena – a Basque model – one of today’s most sought after models.

Kokorico (50ml £36.50, 100ml £54.00) launches exclusively in Harrods on the 27th December 2011 then Nationwide from the 11th January 2012.
