Reviews of Gentlemen Only

A lot of those notes considered as manly. Good, but nothing too special.

First notes are floral and quickly develop a well balanced sweetness.

The opening is very unisex.

Later it transitions into a more masculine, woody, scent.

Overall this is a casual and pleasant perfume. It is lacking in character but that allows it to be very safe and office friendly (I couldn’t imagine someone being offended by the smell).

Longevity is suprisingly good, though this quickly becomes a skin scent.

I love this stuff. It's a solid fragrance to wear to work and to smell good while remaining somewhat discreet and not attracting unwanted attention. The overall smell is something like the pink pepper accord you get in Spicebomb, but it's crisper, less-sweet, and a bit more brisk and airy as well. Thus it wears less heavily and has a very fresh quality about it that balances the sweetness. Before I tried this, I thought it was going to be a lot more conservative and "boring" in its impression, but it's really not that at all. Although it's somewhat safe, overall it's quite uplifting and feels rather modern. While the fresh-spicy-sweet pink pepper accord generally drives the fragrance, it's supported well by a woody vetiver accord in the base that emerges later in its development, and a kind of gray, smoky incense that that keep the pink pepper and mandarin orange in check, lending a needed and slightly bitter more masculine element to the mix. On the whole, it's a well-polished and blended fragrance with very smooth transitions and harmony and balance between the notes. You'll feel crisp and fresh wearing this and will be able to enjoy it throughout the day even if you're not intruding the space of those around. Longevity is solid and projection is on the better side of average. Quietly becoming a favorite of mine, I'd give Gentlemen Only a final rating of 8.5/10, and I'm going to recommend it as a blind buy for those in the market for a fresh, safe, and modern casual-office fragrance that gets the job done.

A nice green mandarin smell that borders on lychee in the beginning, and then it moves into the characteristic green orange smell afterwards. The patchouli and vetiver give it a cooler icy effect. It's very professional and casual at the same time. It's very easy to wear and no notes overstay their welcome. The basenotes warm things up a little at the end, but neither section of notes is overbearing. Great scent!

Slightly effeminate.

Sweet floral woody.

If that's what's called playful fair enough. Not in my book. More like Unisex.

Fragrance: 6.75/10
Projection: 7/10
Longevity: 7/10

I really enjoy the bright citrus, fresh, sweet, green opening in Gentlemen Only. Very enjoyable and ultra-pleasant.

I see this is as one of those scents that's perfect for daytime semi-formal or business. Basically, perfect for work in offices.

I get very good projection throughout the day when wearing.
