UNCOMPROMISINGLY UNIQUE: No.88 is a complex combination of rare ingredients, creating a classic, sophisticated scent sought out by those who dare to be different
CLASSIC & SOPHISTICATED: No.88 announces itself with a woody top note of reviving bergamot, the richness and warmth of geranium, rose otto and exotic frangipani, combined with dry base notes of vetiver and sandalwood
BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED: a satin finish, black opal glass bottle inspired by 19th-century apothecaries and embellished in a uniquely designed, striking black and white box
COMPLEX FORMULATION: of the highest and purest quality aromatic essential oils, with deep and lasting undertones
“No.88 was the first fragrance from Czech & Speake and launched with great excitement in 1981. Driven by a unique holistic approach to perfumery design – with fragrance, packaging and bottle all designed by myself. My desire was to move away from the English scent tradition with a more sensuous, exotic fragrance with exceptional ingredients at any cost. No.88 was named after our first showroom on Jermyn Street and has developed a passionate following amongst men and women. It is our iconic global fragrance and has always been our best-seller with a particularly loyal clientele.”
Top notes: Bergamot
Middle notes: Geranium, Rose Otto, Cassie, Frangipani

How to apply/how much?
Our fragrances come as a cologne spray, which enables a simple spritz application to the skin; whether that be to the wrists, neck, chest, inner elbow – the choice is yours. Equally the amount applied is personal choice, the higher the application the stronger the scent. The quality and high concentration of our colognes allow for less use to obtain the desired strength of scent.
In some cultures through history, particularly seen in the middle east, perfume is infused into clothing and hair through scented smoke. The concept of scenting clothing as well as the skin has travelled, and a more accessible approach is to simply spray a perfume directly onto your clothing.
Can it be worn by men and women?
Of course. Traditionally, perfume was not gender specific. The separation of fragrance for men and women was a marketing ploy crafted in America in the 1960’s, to encourage more men to buy into the idea of wearing fragrance, as societal attitudes at the time considered the wearing of perfume to be a feminine trait. In reality the notes in perfume should come down to personal taste, with no legitimate reason for this to be defined by gender, especially in the modern context where equality is key.
