I found this one very straightforward. Solving time, 12 mins
Some notes on clues below – happy to explain others if asked.

< = reversed

ACROSS

9 S (LIP) ON Don = put on (clothes)
10 NOSEBAND “Knows” “banned”
12 EURO Double definition.   Currency of many EU countries (including France – hence ‘Paris’) but also a type of kangaroo = jumper
16 TURN SPIT Tips< The word lending itself to cryptic crossword wordplay.

DOWN
3 EU PHONY
14 THE BLUES Double definition. As Chelsea football club are known (from their colours).
