Introducing ‘Oxford & Cambridge Body Wash’ the latest luxurious addition to the Czech & Speake bathing range for gentlemen. This gently foaming and richly fragranced formulation is suitable for both showering and bathing and includes including aloe vera to soothe and refresh and Dead Sea salts to regenerate and tone the skin.
The scent contains French citrus and healing English lavender, topped with herbaceous peppermint, rosemary and bergamot, all perfectly balanced on a base of warm oak moss.
TheChicGeek says, “Let’s be honest, men don’t use expensive body washes religiously throughout the year. The volumes they get through, combined with the high cost, makes it more a treat than an everyday occurrence. Hence, why Christmas is the perfect time to spoil yourself.
Now, this is a treat. A very English treat. When in the shower, this smells strongly of dried lavender, it doesn’t smell like the overall scent which develops, and lasts, into a classic and soft fragrance that you almost wish they could do a version for the washing machine, so all your washing could smell this good.
This is perfect for somebody who wants a soft and lasting, but not overpowering body scent."

The fragrance is defined by a brand new discovery in the olfactory world: the Moepel accord, used for the very first time in perfumery. The moepel is a milkwood tree found in South Africa. It’s odour is totally unique, extremely sensual and incredibly rich.

TheChicGeek says, “This has something of an alpine freshness to start and then dries down to smell of that parched, dried leafy undergrowth you find under trees and bushes in a warm climate.
I’ve never smelt moepel before, so it’s difficult to put my finger on it. This would appeal to the guy who wants something subtly different yet still masculine and approachable.”
