Raffish Eau de Cologne

(3 customer reviews)

£35.00 £25.00

Raffish is the new men’s fragrance from The Chap, taking a much more masculine stance than Flaneur. Raffish is for the man-about-town off to make some night mischief in his top hat, monocle and cane. Raffish is a heady blend of dark spices and elegant florals, which combine to produce a decadent scent that will make you feel louche as soon as you wear it.
On a base of sandalwood, vetiver, amber and patchouli is added a fragrant sprinkling of spices, ylang-ylang and blackcurrant, rising to top notes of jasmine, mandarin orange, lemon and gardenia.

  1. Darcy Sullivan

    Raffish has a warm, seductive scent that strikes me as a bit more dangerous than Chap’s other scent, Flaneur. Raffish is thus more appropriate for a romantic rendezvous or a heist. Don’t splash too much on or you may cause pandemonium. It will go well with opera scarves, cravats, slouch hats and driving gloves, and is perfect for wooing rich dowagers or wide-eyed ingenues alike.

  2. Ferdinand Sturm

    A deep, warm and dark scent that seems to emanate directly from my skin! With good stamina for a long night! Let’s go, let’s fish for compliments!

  3. Steve Martin

    Matt black cardboard. Embossed gold lettering. A gentleman with stiff collar, top hat, monocle and cigarette in the tip. The motif that decorates “Raffish” looks a little out of time. But only for those who do not know the brand behind it: THE CHAP is a humorous men’s magazine that has been pleasurably playing with the traditions of British style for twenty years and does not take itself too seriously.

    However, the publisher Gustav Temple’s excursion into the world of perfume can now be taken very seriously. After the male-flowery cologne for strollers, “Flaneur”, he has now launched his magazine’s second fragrance “made in England” under the brand name of his magazine, as proudly emblazoned on the back of the packaging. In the top note, a floral flanked mandarin orange is appealing, which is joined by a little clove – the only spice I think I can smell. This fragrance really shows its qualities after about an hour. Unfortunately, I do not notice the blackcurrant, which I really like in perfumes. On the other hand, the base of slightly sweet amber sandalwood is really beautiful and round. The longer “Raffish” is applied, the darker and warmer it becomes and seems to flow directly from the skin. A feel-good fragrance for the more mature man which – very neat for an EdC – lasts for the duration of a long evening!

    The name “Raffish” may irritate us if we suspect that this is a fragrance for adventurous pirates or breakneck double-decker pilots. No, it is the audacity of the gentleman in top hat and monocle described at the beginning of this article who laughingly orders the best champagne after losing high stakes in roulette – and smells damn good at the same time. And, yes, he has fallen out of time. But that’s just what’s so comforting about him in these times, from which oneself would like to fall from time to time…
