Charming individual from Soho with time off (8)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'charming individual' is the definition.
'smoothie' can be an answer for 'individual' (smoothie is a kind of individual). I'm not sure about the 'charming' bit.

'soho with time off' is the wordplay.
'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'off' indicates an anagram.
'soho' put after 'time' is 'timesoho'.
'timesoho' anagrammed gives 'SMOOTHIE'.

'from' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?
