Move over the Little Mermaid as TheChicGeek gets sculptural in the latest menswear collection from Burberry. Inspired by the British sculptor, Henry Moore, Burberry's new collection was a play with form, function and distortion. Oversized dress shirts, sweatshirts with rope detailing and twisted brogues were all part of their 'See Now, Buy Now' collection.

This limited-edition fragrance from Givenchy's Gentlemen Only series is an aromatic blend of citrus and woody notes. Featuring lemon, Nepal mint, sage, Haiti vetiver and ambroxan with a scene of Paris’ River Seine on the bottle.
TheChicGeek says, “You’d be mistaken, from the bottle, for thinking this smelt like the Seine. Well, thank goodness, it doesn’t. I’ve been a fan of Givenchy’s Gentlemen Only series, and this, the fourth, is what I would class as a ‘Summer Edition’.
Its fresh, aquatic notes loses some of the warmth of the original though. It has a strong lemon top note uncut with a coolness from the mint. While nothing revolutionary, it does offer a summer freshness without tipping over into annoying marine”.

The latest in the line-up of Givenchy’s Gentlemen Only fragrances, Casual Chic remains true to the original accords of Gentlemen Only - sandalwood, cedar wood, birch leaf, but with the addition of three spices – cardamom, ginger and juniper.
TheChicGeek says “The modern man likes a trilogy, and 'Casual Chic' finishes this off nicely for Givenchy’s Gentleman Only series. This is a modern grown-up fragrance, which means it’s masculine, but easy.
I was a fan of the original Gentlemen Only, of course, I’m going to like ginger! I’m TheChicGeek afterall, but it gives it a green, fresh spiciness which is perfect as we enter the warmer months.”
