Jean Paul Gaultier’s 360-degree virtual #BetheDrop fragrance campaign

Jean Paul Gaultier has released a second set of 360-degree videos tied to its fragrance business. For the launch of Classique and Le Male Essence de Parfum, the brand is inviting fans to explore the perspective of being a single drop belonging to the scents, exploring them as though within the bottle itself.

#Bethedrop, as the campaign is called, takes the user on an immersive journey through different notes in the fragrances, from fresh wood in Le Male to spicy chantilly in Classique. They are able to control their perspective throughout both virtual films, rotating the view left and right as well as up and down. Each of them end on an outside perspective looking back at the bottle.

They are viewable on both the brandโ€™s website as well as on its YouTube channel (as below). They also follow a previous campaign from the brand earlier this year called #BetheBottle, which provided a slightly racier view from the perspective of the bottle while models posed and cavorted alongside.

Other fragrance and beauty brands playing in the virtual reality space include Charlotte Tilbury, Benefit and Dior. Within fashion and retail it has spanned Tommy Hilfiger, Rebecca Minkoff, Topshop and JC Penney.
