Czech & Speake 

Czech & Speake is the product of an unusual idea: the creation of a tradition. In England in the late 1970s, interior design was becoming big business and in a nation famous for a house being a home and a home being thought of as a castle, fitted kitchens and bespoke bedrooms had been crafted for years. The bathroom, however, was left unloved. With this in mind, Frank Sawkins spotted what proved to be a fantastic opportunity: to create a company that combined bathroom fittings of supreme quality with a genuine bespoke appeal and compliment these with a range of matchless Aromatics. So in 1978 Czech & Speake was founded. The following year he opened the first shop at No. 39 Jermyn Street London, opposite his studio at No. 88 from which the brand’s signature fragrance, No. 88, takes its name.  A favourite with both men and women, Czech & Speake No.88 cologne is a truly English scent. The first and most complex in the Czech & Speake Aromatics Collection, No.88 has 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 and always a best seller at The Gentleman's Groom Room. Czech & Speake soon found itself as respected a store as any of the more established names in the area.Their exclusivity remains subsumed beneath artistic considerations rather than marketing strategies with exclusivity maintained by strictly limited distribution. A genuine English luxury brand and a rare success story of quality and style, vision and tradition.
