Our Neroli Moisturising Bath & Body Oil 50ml was featured in Mr Porter’s list of “How to Manscape in 2019”

Run a bath and pour in an oil, such as Czech & Speake Neroli Moisturising Bath And Body Oil. The bath will help hydrate skin that’s been stripped during the process and soften the remaining hair.”

“The next day we (Elton included this time) limo-ed into town for more shopping, then another nice salad lunch at the Queensdale house. For the rest of the afternoon, we rushed around the city in the Bentley chauffeured by Derrick, stopping at Elton’s favorite Mayfair shops for soaps and potions like Czech & Speake, and his favorite T-shirts store, where we walked in and within minutes he’d purchased hundreds of pounds worth.
