Kokorico by Jean Paul Gaultier, Introduced in September 2011, Kokorico is a gallant fragrance for men who want to add a robustly sensual touch to their day. The scent gets its quirky name from the French onomatopoeia for rooster’s cry (“cock-a-doodle-doo” in English).
Top notes of fig leaves lead the grand entrance into this blend, collaborating beautifully with warm, rich heart notes of cocoa. Woody base notes of patchouli, vetiver, and cedar round out this fragrance with unmistakable masculinity. The bottle itself, shaped like a male head from one side and a male torso from another side, embodies the headstrong confidence of a man ready to take on anything.
Jean Paul Gaultier is considered one of France’s most influential fashion figures. He created his self-named brand in 1976 and launched his first perfume in 1993, an Eau De Parfum for women now known as Classique. Today the brand has over 100 fragrances in its collection, with the earliest being from 1993 and the latest from 2018.
