Jean Paul Gaultier created the ground-breaking fragrance “Le Mâle” when he was just 24 years old. Instead of sitting back and enjoying his success, he took a risk to break new ground and bring art into the process of creating scents.
Hedi Slimane, Rick Owens, Hedi Slimane, Riccardo Tisci, Alber Elbaz, and John Galliano are just a few of the prominent names in the fashion industry who have utilised his expertise and aesthetic sense. He opened his own custom perfume workshop in 2001, in keeping with his forward-thinking outlook (Dior, Guerlain or Saint-Laurent).
He started getting requests in 2003 to make scent-based artwork from artists like Sophie Calle, Christian Rizzo, and Sarkis. These interactions marked the beginning of his quest to break down the boundaries between disciplines and the senses. He makes us dream with extraordinary olfactory installations and master classes, whether in France or abroad, at the Grand Palais, the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, Villa Medici, the Palace of Versailles, or the Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan for international exhibitions. By the time he was 30, he had been awarded the Chevalier des Arts and Letters.
