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.
