“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.
The 100ml variant of the EdP was presented in our own traditional reagent bottle, which I transformed by using black glass. 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”
