Daring in English
Matt black cardboard. Embossed gold lettering. A gentleman with stiff collar, top hat, monocle and cigarette in the tip. The motif that adorns "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, which has been playing with the traditions of British style for twenty years and doesn't take itself too seriously.

However, the publisher Gustav Temple's excursion into the world of perfume can now be taken quite 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 don't notice the black currant, which I really like in perfumes. On the other hand, the base of slightly sweet amber sandalwood is really nice 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 who - very neat for an EdC - lasts for the duration of a long evening!

The name "Raffish" (meaning "daring") may irritate us if we suspect that it 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 what's so comforting about him in these times, when you'd like to fall out of them yourself...
