Repurchased: "Madame" by Jean Paul Gaultier

Review Jean Paul Gaultier Madame Eau de Toilette
 I don't post about perfume often, but I have a post about my favourite A/W fragrance (Burberry Brit), so I figured it was time for a Spring/Summer update. A few weeks ago I repurchased my favourite scent for pretty much every occasion: "Madame" by Jean Paul Gaultier. 

It's actually an eau the toilette rather than an eau the perfume - it's cheaper that way, and I also prefer my scents to not be extremely heavy. Somehow, it seems to be on offer quite frequently in the store I usually buy it from, so I'm pretty happy about that. Generally, I think the price varies from around 30-40 € for 30 ml depending on where you get it from and whether or not it is on offer. 

I love the packaging of all the Gaultier perfumes, but what I especially like about Madame is that while it incorporates the design of the female body that the scents of the Classique range have for example, it's actually only part of a more classic bottle.

Review Jean Paul Gaultier Madame Eau de Toilette

The scent itself is described as fresh and floral, with notes of orange zest, sparkling rose, musk and cedar wood. Ever since first trying it, I have always liked that while it is a floral scent, it does still smell distinctively different than most of the more basic flower scents you can get. It is a very fresh scent, so I suppose it's more of a Spring/Summer scent, but I have to admit I like to wear it all year around. 

So far, this is the only perfume that I have repurchased more than once (or at all, I think!), and I don't see myself stopping when I'm finished with this new bottle. I find it's always hard to explain a scent and why you like it as much as you do, but it seems like I'm not the only one in my family who likes it - my mum loves it as well! Good thing she has her own bottle now, because she always used to steal it from me ... 

Do you have a favourite scent for Spring/Summer? Let me know in the comments! :)
