Better than Ferrari Light Essence
It consists of several clichés but really well maded, and it is not bad in practice. I consider Gentlemen Only Casual Chic to be in the same category as Chanel Egoiste, A&F Pierce, PDM Percival and so on, but the exquisite shaving cream-like side of it and, above all, its pleasant powdery feel underneath makes it stand out a bit more.

But sadly it has poor performance. It lasts two to three hours and disappears literally, and I, of course, add that it's not because my nose is tired. It's very much like Gentlemen Only, but compared to GO, it has no smoky animalic scent. So it gives a fresher and clearer feel, but actually in other words, it's a thing like GO, with the base notes removed altogether.

It's certainly not bad, and if it had better perfomance, I might have bought it for myself. But at this price range, I can say about 3,000 perfumes that are better than this. I think it's as good as Egoiste considering its scent, but at best it's a little better than Ferrari Light Essence considering its performance.

A legal alien like an Englishman in Paris
I am rocking this cologne right now, I love it, so unique, so manly, so different. I was never turned away by the bad reviews, and I am glad I looked into this one. Gentlemen Only Casual Chic turns 4 years old now, it's a divine fragrance for men, and it's my second Gentlemen Only cologne together with the original one, of which is a youthful flanker, not heavy and in your face, closely akin yet featuring ginger, cardamom, and juniper.

First thing first, the glass is the same English-style flask already used by the range, crystalline with a heavy metal cap, an orange straw, and a pale azure juice within that creates bluish reflections. On the get-go, it starts with green, balsamic, and fresh spicy elements without any citrusy accord, juniper berries are the leading note, with a so bitter, cool, bright, and piny redolence. The initial spray seems to have an element of orange for the first few seconds or so before the spicy and woody aroma emerges. It has an outdoorsy vibe that is topped by the ginger and juniper notes which creates quite an interesting combination.

The heart and base are where this really shines. The balsamic and spicy aspects fade away and the woody notes come into focus. It isn't a one-note accord, rather a bunch of fresh spices like invigorating ginger and minty cardamom, greenish birch leaves that provide a soft leather accord, and mild cedarwood. Less prominent warm spicy and leather accords create fantastic depth to make you smell phenomenal, with just a little bit of mint. A minty smooth leather unconventional accord. The ginger note reminds me of Dior Homme Sport, although I would not say Casual Chic smells like Dior Homme Sport, and I find it to be quite ‘green’ and woodsy, like a walk in the forest on a late spring or summer day, but it doesn’t go full woods as compared to other scents.

Then it starts to dry down into a still fresh, woodsy scent with a seductive tiny hint of vanilla staying close to the skin, presumably coming from the ambroxan, which keeps it warm and smooth without getting overpowered by the cedar. Ambroxan is as sweet as in Dior Sauvage, unquestionably. More, the creamy, woody, clean scent from the cedar and sandalwood combo is superb.

Casual Chic is a very safe scent, classy, versatile, it can be worn to work, school, or on a day spent around town. You can wear this in the day or evening, but I think it lends itself better to daytime wear. The best season to wear this is in the spring and it can be worn in summer if you do not live someplace that's really warm. It's not groundbreaking, but it doesn't smell much like anything else in my collection. I receive a compliment nearly every time I wear this stuff. Not a date fragrance but you might impress someone at the office with this one and get a date that way, you know?
