Posted on January 20, 2023 by Captain P. Fawcett

Happy New Year! And, indeed, Gong hei fat choy - 恭喜发财 - to my chums in China! And thus begins the Chinese Year of the Rabbit. According to the wisdom of the Chinese zodiac, Rabbit Men are extraordinarily polite, gentle, modest, kind, optimistic, sensitive and considerate - as such, the very model of a 21st century gentleman! Huzzah for the bunny boys!

So…what news from HQ

Fuelled by lashings of strong Darjeeling and the occasional bit of crumpet, Captain Fawcett and his indefatigable crew are bright-eyed and bushy-chinned, marching headlong into 2023. What remarkable escapades are on the cards this year? Let’s get to it!

Eau De Parfum Collection

Discover your Signature Scent

Jamborees and jollifications are back on the calendar at last! Time to get suited and booted!

Sample the olfactory delights of Captain’s utterly delectable Eau De Parfum collection and discover your special-occasion fragrance from the Signature Series scent library of Captain Fawcett.


Look after yourself

The need for ‘self-care’ is bandied about left, right and centre, by Jove! But when a fellow’s burnt-out, on the ropes and altogether stretched too thin he tends to be clean out of ideas for simply spending a bit of time on himself. So make a nice cup of tea, sit down and spend awhile in the company of Captain Fawcett’s YouTube channel. Enjoy expert gentleman’s grooming tips amid moments of merriment and mayhem. It’ll do you a power of good!

Captain Fawcett’s Marvellous Barbershop Museum Awaits!

‘A fabulous, fascinating, quirky and splendidly eccentric place!’***** on Trip Advisor.

Captain Fawcett’s world renowned ‘Marvellous Barbershop Museum’, is his personal homage to tonsorial art, a collection of barbering artefacts and ‘mantiques’ like no other, housed in his rather splendid Emporium. Surely one of the UK’s most memorable independent museums. But don’t just take my word for it - come and see for yourself! And if you book in advance, there’ll be tea and cake! I should coco! Meanwhile, the Captain most cordially invites you to stroll at your leisure through the virtual version. Ain’t technology wonderful?

As ever the online Emporium is OPEN FOR BUSINESS at all hours! Do pop by!

There’s a Great Expedition to plan, bags to be packed, routes to be mapped and thus I moustache!

Happy New Year!
