Flâneur by The Chap

(2 customer reviews)

£29.00

This gentlemen’s fragrance from The Chap is based on the classic men’s scents of the early 20th century. On a masculine base of amber, patchouli, vetiver and vanilla are sprinkled middle notes of violet, iris, geranium and rose, lifting the scent heavenwards to its top notes of bergamot, verbena and pink pepper. The overall ambience is of elegance with a touch of the louche, as befits a flaneur.
Flâneur is a French word for a chap who strolls about with no purpose in mind other than to find either himself or simply intrigue. If you want something to douse yourself in while sauntering about the old quarter of a city in search of adventure, flâneur will be just the ticket. Flâneur comes in a 50ml glass bottle inside an absinthe-green presentation box. Please note that due to customs restrictions this product is not available in Australia or New Zealand.

    I have been testing Flaneur for the past few days. I am really impressed with these wonderfully aromatic creation. When I saw that it was classed as an eau de cologne, I thought of a scent that might not be very long lasting. I was wrong, Flaneur is very strong, you only need a few squirts for the scent to last all day, and the sillage is wonderful. Had good comments from other people when I’ve worn it. The notes, in cologne are very well blended, that it had me scratching my head trying to work out what was in it. It’s not overly masculine in the 1970s hairy chested powerhouse fragrance style. It’s refined, elegant, very 1930s. The other good thing is, it will work perfectly on Chapettes as well as Chaps.

    Indeed, in these days to go idle, to let the world be the world, the politics the politics and to adopt the mode of aimless strolling, can certainly need a little olfactory support. So I grab the bottle, coat, stick and hat and let myself drift through the big city jungle…

    The barbershopstyle prelude of the first spray disappears fast and is probably owed only to the evaporating alcohol. Immediately the heart of the “Flâneur” captures me, and that is flowery! I usually tear quickly before blooms in fragrances. But this variety of flowers (compliment!) is not overwhelmingly sweet, but has a pleasantly masculine “sharpness”. I do not explicitly smell the top notes, but perhaps bergamot, verbena and pink pepper contribute to not making the bouquet appear too effusively feminine-soft. In the base, an amber-vanilla note is slowly added, which softly ends the idleness…

    In fact, the “Flâneur” is a successful balancing act between an extroverted dandy and a reserved gentleman. The fragrance is declared as EdC. However, this seems to be British understatement, as the endurance of six to seven hours allows unquestionably also excessive walks in friendly warm freshness. So let’s go idle…!

    Splendid stuff. Floral top notes with a wonderful smoky base. Perfect for the flâneur.

    The flaneur is a boulevardier, a dandy and a person with no fixed destination but plenty of style. Flaneur represents this lifestyle well with a tantalizing aroma that flirts with insouciance. It’s what I would wear with a monocle and homburg to hit the lanes.

    A wonderfully vibrant and floral scent. A little goes a long way, too! Wearing it on a trip out recently, got me into an interesting conversation with an extremely interesting young lady in my local bookshop. I had to explain that she could not just sashay into the nearest branch of Boots, and lift it from the counter, but would have to order it from yourselves. Shamefully, she had never heard of your publication, so I took her to the local branch of WH Smiths, and did the right thing, and bought her a copy of the latest edition. I hope it helped her.
    The Flaneur still smelled wonderful some hours later. Thank you. I intend buying more.
