GQ UK

Our recently released Traditional Lavender Hand Sanitising Spray was picked up by GQ and included in their list of ‘Best new grooming items this week’.

‘Right now, we’re all using a lot more hand sanitiser, whether on the go or in the comfort of our homes. That said, not all sanitisers out there smell particularly nice, and we’ve worked hard to find one that does the job but doesn’t leave a lingering stench of bleach. Enter, eco-friendly Purdy & Figg’s lavender-scented hand-sanitising spray created in collaboration with Czech & Speake.’

Ventvenir Blog

Perfume Blog Ventvenir reviewed our Rose Cologne.

“The beauty of this fragrance lies in its simplicity and the natural, almost raw scent of young rose whose fragile petals are still covered with the morning dew. In Rose Cologne, a delicate yet refreshing blend of rose and geranium is masterfully completed by the duet of ylang-ylang and mimosa.”

Gentleman’s Journal

Our latest creation, Perfecto Fino, was included in the Gentleman’s Journal article: “The Best New Fragrances For Spring 2020”.

“Not for the faint hearted, the new spring fragrance from London-based grooming brand Czech & Speake is inspired by Cuban cigars and the culture of Latin America. Built around powerful notes of leather, sandalwood and tobacco, top notes of lemon and bergamot and a heart of cinnamon and clove lend this scent a floral spiciness that make it hard to forget.”

Ventvenir Blog

Perfume Blog Ventvenir reviewed our latest addition to our fragrance collection: Perfecto Fino Eau de Parfum.

“Perfecto Fino is the perfume with a strong and slightly rough character that nevertheless has something romantic like the fascinating world of Central America, which invites you to explore it with an open heart.

If it were a place, it would be a local cafe somewhere in Central America.

If it were a color, it would be dark brown with green.

If it were one word, it would be nostalgic.

Grey Fox Blog

Menswear and lifestyle blog Grey Fox reviewed our latest creation, Perfecto Fino Eau de Parfum.

“This is a complex fragrance with a solid base of wood, leather and, yes, even hot tarmac: very reminiscent of a vintage car interior – in a nice way of course. This is relieved by spicy caramel notes and even a hint of cigar smoke (or was that the box design giving me that hint?) combined with a whack of fruitiness and even a scintilla of citrus.”

Gentleman’s Journal

The Gentleman’s Journal reviewed our latest release, Perfecto Fino Eau de Parfum.

“It’s a spicy, almost earthy scent — with deep acidic influences and a flutter of floral top notes. Imagine the sort of bar in old Havana where you’d have polished off a couple of naval-strength Daiquiris with Hemingway. That’s what it smells like. Unapologetically masculine; fiery and powerful.”

Carl Thompson Blog

Men’s style influencer Carl Thompson shares his thoughts on our latest fragrance release, Perfecto Fino Eau de Parfum.

“This does offer something very transportable. And by that I mean it evokes a lot of distant imagery. The fragrance is undeniably masculine. I imbibed the cracked Russian leather and charred smoke as if I were getting a ride back to Havana airport in a ’55 Pontiac. 

The fragrances’ brawn is somehow mellowed with natural herbaceous notes of jasmine and orange flower. “

GQ – Australia

In tribute to actor Daniel Craig ‘s decade in the role of James bond, GQ compiled a list of stylish grooming products that are suitably British. Our Oxford & Cambridge Cologne and Body Wash were chosen to be worn for the character ‘M’.

‘While the name and the sent are as old-school as they come, M is not all about rigid tradition, which resonates nicely with Czech & Speake’s elegant riffing on the classics.’
