1. Moustache Wax & Folding Pocket Moustache Comb Set
2. Booze & Baccy Body Wash and Shampoo
3. Nebula Signature Series Beard Balm, Beard Oil & Moustache Wax
This brand new range includes a Beard Balm, Beard Oil and Moustache Wax, distinguished by a delectable fragrance. Top notes of exhilarating bergamot & aromatic myrtle riff with a bittersweet tang of grapefruit, rising to an intense heart of earthy, violet orris, dark coffee & tenacious woody cedar. A pulse of seductive musk trails a smoky backbeat laced with vetiver & luxurious leather.
The perfect present for musicians and all rock star spirits.
Plus! Each 50ml Nebula Beard Oil includes a Limited Edition Nebula Guitar Flow Pick, designed and created by @johnpetrucciofficial in collaboration with @jimdunlopusa. While stocks last.
4. Alessandro Manfredini Eau de Parfum
What better gift in the depths of winter than the bottled fragrance of afternoons lazing in dappled shade, of slow time and the murmuring warmth of Italian orchards? Captain Fawcett’s new collaboration with Alessandro Manfredini has created an Eau de Parfum rich with memory. A most seductive Signature Series scent evocative of Italy’s capricious seasons. Woody spiced top notes of rosemary & star anise combine with mid notes of fresh green cyclamen on a bed of mineral ambergris, calming cedarwood & sun toasted tonka.
Not sure? Try it first with a delightful sample size - available for all the Captain’s Signature Series Eau de Parfums.
5. Razor in handcrafted leather case
Captain Fawcett’s preferred safety razor is perfectly balanced ensuring it is a delight to use as well as giving a quite magnificent shave. Safely housed in a beautifully handcrafted premium quality, hide leather case with brass capstan securing stud, keeping the blade protected and away from prying hands whether in one’s luggage or displayed upon the wash stand.
6. The Quintessential Grooming Guide for the Modern Gentleman
Handsomely bound in festive green and gold (UK edition) this is Captain Fawcett’s private cornucopia of astounding photographs, illustrated instructions, exclusive interviews with distinguished barbers, tonsorial artists and style connoisseurs. Accompanied by witty commentary on all aspects of gentlemen’s grooming, the Captain muses upon what it means to be a gentleman in the twenty-first century. A fine addition to any gentleman’s library, an impressive coffee table book and jolly good bedtime reading to boot!
7. Temple Candle
Summon the opulent perfumes of the Far East and alight the senses with Fawcett’s noble Himalayan Temple Oud Soy Candle candle, resplendent in a reusable amber whisky glass with finely wrought monogram glinting gold in the seductive glow. Perfect for conjuring a sensuous mood whether bathing, meditating or entertaining one’s most honoured guests.
8. Moustache Wax Cornucopia
I do love that word ‘cornucopia’! What splendid extravagance it conjures! Quite simply, this delightful box contains all 3 jars of the Captain’s deliciously scented original patent pomades for waxing the moustache. Hand made using only the purest of ingredients, the finest sourced Lavender, Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang essential oils are just the ticket to ennoble one’s upper lip. The utmost indulgence.
9. Million Dollar Beard Oil
A luxuriant gleaming beard oil enriched with flakes of 23 carat gold made by Captain Fawcett and fellow adventurer Jimmy Niggles Esq, the founding ambassador of Beard Season and cultivator of the world’s first Million Dollar Beard. A bracing oceanic scent blended with resinous earthy notes and a breath of fresh floral citrus - smooth into your beard and surf into Christmas feeling like a million dollars! All hail the hirsute.
10. Luxury Tweed Wash Bag
Pack up your troubles in your new tweed bag! The very material used to create the Captain’s beloved plus-fours has been re-woven & crafted into an indispensable wash bag for the discerning gentleman. Pop in a few Fawcett goodies and one has a really rather special kind of stocking for a favourite chap.
An undoubtedly handsome gift for men: the Signature Series Gift Box, packed with gentleman’s grooming requisites, each with its own distinctive character. Sid Sottung’s exquisite Barberism captures the essence of the modern man, classic, discerning, elegant. And one might play a blinder with Ricki Hall’s Booze and Baccy, a luxurious fragrance, rich with memory. Or perchance hasten the coming of spring with Rufus Hound’s Triumphant - reminiscent of balmy days riding one’s motorcycle through England’s green and pleasant land.
12. Scapicchio Soap
The name Scapicchio is synonymous with one of the world’s oldest barbering families, renowned over five generations for whom the artisan skills of this most noble profession have been handed down from father to son. Captain Fawcett collaborated with Luigi Scapicchio to produce a gloriously scented Signature Series Fig, Olive and Bay Rum Shaving Soap, inspired by the fragrance of olive groves in the family’s native Puglia. A fine gift for fathers or, indeed, for a young man just beginning his shaving journey. Refills are available so a splendidly sustainable gift to boot!
Naturally, certain individuals appreciate nothing more than being given the freedom to choose their own destiny, or at least their own presents. And for such independent spirits, a simple Gift Card is just the ticket.
All that remains is a final reminder of the last ordering dates:
Now, where the devil are my slippers? I am quite overcome by contemplating such splendid luxury. Do wake me for supper.
