The Czech & Speake story began in the late 1970s when founder Frank Sawkins spotted what proved to be a fantastic opportunity: to create a company that combined bespoke bathroom fittings of a supreme quality (at the time neglected by Britain's interior design blitz), accompanied by luxury fragrances and toiletry accessories. More than thirty years later, Czech & Speake of Jermyn Street, London has become a rare success story of quality and tradition.Sawkins wanted to sell the idea of the bathroom as a sanctuary, combined with amodern “Englishness”, to convey a sense of history, elegance and craft.Czech & Speake is more famous than ever for bathroom fittings that made its name, accompanied by fragrances and accessories. Frank Sawkins’ good idea and an eye for opportunity have created a genuine English luxury brand and a rare success story of quality, style, vision and tradition.
On his visits to Cuba, Czech & Speake’s Founder Frank
Sawkins was inspired to create a fragrance of the same name, which evokes the island’s dignity, laid-back life-style and exotic flair. A heady, spicy mix of essential oils, Cuba is reminiscent of the eponymous island’s
vibrant flora. Inspired by the old town of Havana, its Latin rhythms, smooth cigars, fine rums and exotic beauties, this fragrance bursts into life with the initial top notes of bergamot, lime, peppermint and a hint of rum. Layered with a mélange of spicy and floral middle notes, mainly rose, clove and bay, Tonka beans add a subtle softness with their scent reminiscent of freshly mown hay. The lasting base notes of tobacco mixed with the richness of frankincense, cedar wood and vetiver round off this striking fragrance.
