Czech & Speake no 88

We have some pretty stylish grooming products for men at the moment - one of the most popular is Czech & Speake No. 88 - the unisex signature scent from the London based niche fragrance house, and it's their most revered and most complex product. We secured some recently, just before everyone sold out of existing supplies, so we're lucky to have it in stock to send with next day delivery.

In the sleek, black 100ml spray bottle, it's a fresh, woody top note of reviving and uplifting Bergamot, the richness and warmth of Geranium, Rose Otto, Cassie and exotic Frangipani. Combined with dry base notes of Vetiver and Sandalwood, this modern classic has a full-bodied, sophisticated sensuality.
You can buy online or give us a call on 0141 649 2489 to reserve your bottle while current stocks last.

Louis Vuitton City Guide Glasgow

The swishest package was delivered to us last week, with news we are included in the 2013 Louis Vuitton European City Guide. In the words of the people at Louis Vuitton, the addresses within the guide are 'selected with flair and discernment' and a 'steadfast pursuit for originality'. Our wee establishment is featured alongside the best in Paris, London, Cannes, Marseille, St Tropez, Lisbon, Moscow, Milan, Brussels, Berlin and more.

The story was picked up by Scotland on Sunday where in the online comments section, it became a bit of a 'which is more stylish' battle between Edinburgh (who were in the previous guide, and will be again, as the guides work in rotation) and Glasgow. We had hoped people would have focussed on the more positive angle, that when councils and government in the UK are stumped as to how to stop the decline of the high street, a guide commissioned by such a renowned company like Louis Vuitton is a wonderful way for tourists and locals alike to find the best shops, cafes, restaurants, hotels etc. a city has to offer.

The Metro newspaper ran a little piece on it too - using a photo of our shop that's almost two years old, and looks like it was taken on a camera phone. We wish they'd asked us for something a bit nicer (and checked the spelling of our names and things!)  but regardless, it was really nice they chose our shop to feature.

We’ve decided to stock a fragrance many of you will already be familiar with, 4711. It’s going through a resurgence, partnering with Matthew Williamson for his last catwalk show and selling in all the best London barbershops.

4711 range at Pierrot et Coco

4711 is over 200 years old, so everyone will know someone who has worn it in the past, but it’s one to be re-discovered. We chose it for several reasons; At first we were attracted to the opulent deep turquoise and gold packaging we knew would suit our shop perfectly, then we really liked what we smelled – extremely fresh citrus fruits blended with Rosemary, Lavender and Neroli. It’s also very affordable, making it easy to buy a few pieces from the range to complement each other without it seeming like a major investment.

The best thing about the fragrance is its history. When Truman Capote wrote the book Breakfast at Tiffany’s, he gave Holly Golightly (played by Audrey Hepburn in the film) 4711 as her signature scent as it was the most popular fragrance of the time in Europe for young women, especially in Paris where it outsold Dior and Chanel No 5.

Now it’s considered a unisex scent, with aftershave part of the range. From £3.95, we have a wide range of 4711 products at Pierrot et Coco.

Scents from Madrid

Further expanding our "Gentleman's Quarter", we have an inexpensive delight from Madrid in the form of Alvarez Gomez - Agua de Colonia Concentrada. Celebrating its 100th year on the market, but only its 1st year in the UK, this invigorating cologne based on the scents of Mediterranean flowers, plants and fruits is a zesty, refreshing delight.

The opening is a fizz bomb of lemon and orange blossom...
carried by herbs (think sage & mint). It tickles the nose with the same sparkling effervescence as a freshly poured gin and tonic. Then comes a satisfying hit of lavender, rose and vanilla to soften the edges. A combination which has clearly stood the test of time!
Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia 150ml spray : £27.95 @ Pierrot et Coco

Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia 750ml £59 @ Pierrot et Coco - looks like a big bottle of gin, perfect for those who really love the fragrance and like to decant into travel sprays and room sprays

 Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia 150ml Spray Deodorant £7.95 @ Pierrot et Coco. Ensure your scent is the same from head to toe by using the same fragrance of deodorant spray.
Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia useful perfumed towelettes/wipes, come in a box of 10 individually sealed sachets, perfect for freshening up throughout the day. £3.95 @ Pierrot et Coco

 Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia Boxed Soap - two large bars in a lovely presentation box. £10.95 @ Pierrot et Coco

Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia candle 120g - a beautiful votive with gold design around the glass holds a wonderfully scented candle, with a dose of vanilla on top of the citrus fragrance. £18.50 @ Pierrot et Coco

New season's Happy Socks

This is our favourite pattern from the new autumn/winter season's Happy Socks. It's proving difficult to choose which colourway to go for!

 £7.50 @ Pierrot et Coco


Expansion of our 'Gentlemen's Quarter'

As we add more products to create a proper 'Gentlemen's Quarter' at Pierrot et Coco, we have gone for a decidedly English brand with Mayfair's D.R. Harris.
Our focus is on the Arlington range, at the centre of which sits a fine gentlemanly cologne that first hits you with a stimulating burst of lemony citrus. This is immediately sliced through by fresh, green ferns and a light neroli and musk. The citrus note last surprisingly long and sits alongside the woody, fougere notes for the duration of its projection.

Often considered the British Acqua Di Parma, this classic, refined and discreet fragrance is never intrusive and leaves you with an overall sense of refreshment. 

Everything is in stock and available for next-day delivery within the UK and fast worldwide delivery.

We currently have a wider range that the items shown (we also have best badger shaving brushes and shampoo bar in metal tin) and we're always happy to offer advice if you're not quite sure what to go for.

D.R. Harris Arlington Cologne 50ml spray £24.50 @ Pierrot et Coco

D.R. Harris Arlington Bath & Shower Gel 100ml £9.95 @ Pierrot et Coco

D.R. Harris Arlington Bath Soap -  Large 200g £10.95 @ Pierrot et Coco
D.R. Harris Arlington Shaving Cream in Bowl - 150g Jar £14.95 @ Pierrot et Coco

D. R. Harris Arlington Shaving Cream tube 75g : £8.95 @ Pierrot et Coco

D.R. Harris soothing Lip Balm 7.5g : £3.95 @ Pierrot et Coco

Baby Rabbit Lamp

We've wanted these vintage style baby rabbit lamps for such a long time at Pierrot et Coco. Eventually we got round to adding to our kitsch lamp collection and now have these incredibly cute lamps in stock.

Modelled on a vintage Japanese toy, it has 1940's looks, with a kiss curl peeping out of the bunny hood, and little drawn on eye-brows like the film stars of the day.

Hand painted with a sage green or white all-in-one sleepsuit, the lamp reveals a cheeky side with a little bare bottom peeping out.

When lit gives off a mottled light, bright enough to read a book by and gentle enough to drift off to sleep when it's on.

Gold mugs - important news

We have some gold mugs (as seen on Celebrity Big Brother) en route to us now and they will be packed and sent to the first batch of lucky customers who bought. The second lot is due with us mid September and a 3rd lot in October and these will go out to those who have reserved or bought in advance.

However, we have just heard we cannot receive any more until late December/mid January, so it looks likely that anyone who has not yet bought will be unable to secure a delivery of these before the end of the year.

We're really disappointed as we know how much you love these mugs! You are welcome to add your name to the waiting list, however, and if we manage to receive some sooner, or anyone cancels their order, we can move you up the queue.

We're happy to help with any queries (shop closed Monday and Tuesday) but open Wednesday to Saturday 11am until 5pm and Sunday 12noon- 4pm. You can email : info@pierrotetcoco.com for a fast reply or telephone 0141 649 2489 and we'll assist in any way we can.

We should have stock of the silver porcelain mugs much sooner - with limited stocks available too!

Gold Mugs and Silver Mugs @ Pierrot et Coco £8


We're making a real 'gentlemen's quarter' in our shop, with grooming products from all over the world coming to us this week. We'll have shaving soaps, brushes, creams, balms, bath soaps, shower gels, colognes...from Mayfair barbershops to Californian companies, and new stock of the beautifully packaged Ortigia range from Italy, we're convinced we've found some of the best. Add to this, the new collection of Happy Socks from Sweden and a few surprise homeware and lifestyle buys, the men at Pierrot et Coco will be more than adequately catered for!

We'll have highlights of some of our favourite choices as soon as they're in-store and online!

Update on Gold Mugs & Telephone Orders

For those not wishing to buy online, we're happy to take orders over the telephone. Currently, we are taking names and telephone numbers for anyone wishing to reserve the gold china mugs (after seeing them used on Celebrity Big Brother 2012). Due to their popularity, if you are not buying online, we need to take a deposit by credit/debit card over the phone with the balance being paid immediately before despatch.

We have sold out of all stock we had, and the delivery in September has all been reserved for pre-orders. The next delivery of gold mugs is expected around the first week of October. As demand is so high, we expect these will all be sent out to customers who reserve them throughout September, so we recommend you place an order for them now to avoid disappointment.

We'll be happy to help with queries throughout the week and weekend too, from 11-5pm on 0141 649 2489.

Postage is £4.95 per order within the UK (£3.50 for orders under £15)

Choosing the Ibride Wall Tray

We love the wall trays we have at Pierrot et Coco from contemporary French company Ibride. We would like one for our own home, but can't decide which one we think is best; Instantly we thought Zhao the Rabbit in Elizabethan dress was the one, but when they arrived we changed allegiance to Cornelius the Monkey. Our customers quickly decided the swan (with three human hands, presumably to keep hold of all those cygnets!) was the favourite and she sold out in no time.

Against a backdrop of midnight blue, slate or olive these would look brilliant and we've already bought the paint. So, now we're torn between Berenice Zebra as she will soon be discontinued by Ibride, making her a little rarer, or Bernardo the Crow with a bumblebee on his shoulder (our little boy's name is Basque for crow and we know he would love it in his bedroom!)

All of our Ibride Trays come presented in black/brown card sliding boxes and postage within the UK is only £4.95 per order.

Gold China Mug : Update

An update on the gold china mugs @ Pierrot et Coco. We've had a huge amount of interest in these over the past week as they are being used in Celebrity Big Brother. Although we quickly sold out of all the stock we had in silver and gold, more mugs will be in stock soon and we're taking pre-orders, on a first come, first served basis. They will be despatched to you as soon as we have them on a next-day delivery courier service.

We expect the silver and gold mugs, which come from Denmark, to be available for despatch in 14 working days, but we will keep everyone who orders them informed of the progress, with the option to cancel at any point within this time.

The gold mugs (with pretty swallows design on the inside) can be found here :

The Midas Touch

Our website's new opening page focuses on all things gold.

We find gold easier to use than silver in the home, working better with old leather, dark wood and paint shades of eau de nil, deep blue and olive.

Moroccan pouffe in metallic gold leather from £98 - perfect as an additional seat or footstool.
Jake Phipps Jeeves bowler hat ceiling light : lined with gold aluminium. £150
 (The Wooster top hat ceiling list is lined with silver)
Something we indulge in every day is a Charbonnel et Walker hot chocolate or a Kusmi tea from this gold china mug  (we have limited numbers as we woke up to a huge number of online sales for our 'Hirondelle' gold china mugs. Somewhat puzzled by the spike in interest, until a customer told us they're being used in the Celebrity Big Brother house...£8 and a delight to drink from!
Christian Lacroix Correspondence cards are a super-stylish gift, or an elegant party invitation. The gold Paseo printed cards come with die-cut envelopes which have gold printed interiors and foiled stickers to close, in a two-part box. Stationery perfection!
