Czech & Speake was founded in 1978 by Frank Sawkins whose unique vision was to create the finest quality bespoke bathroom fittings and compliment these with a range of matchless aromatics. Out of this unique vision the signature fragrance; No.88 was born – and since, the fragrance line has grown significantly in size and popularity whilst its understated exclusivity has been maintained by strictly limited distribution.
No.88 is a truly English scent with a fresh, woody top note of reviving and uplifting Bergamot, the richness and warmth of Geranium, Rose Otto, Cassie and exotic Frangipani. Combined with dry base notes of Vetiver and Sandalwood, this modern classic has a full-bodied, sophisticated sensuality. Devotees range from Orlando Bloom to Ozzy Osbourne.
On another note – for those longing to keep the summer alive we recommend Cuba cologne. This arresting fragrance takes as its inspiration the music and vices – cigars, fine rum and exotic beauties – of Havana old town. Initial top notes of Bergamot, Lime, Peppermint and a hint of Rum are layered with a melange of spicy and floral middle notes, mainly Rose, Clove and Bay. Tonka beans add a subtle softness and lasting base notes of Tobacco mixed with Frankincense, Cedar wood and Vetiver provide an alluring richness.
