Last Orders at the Emporium Gentlemen!
The days are hastening on and I do hope you are in the midst of merriment or, should that not be your cup of egg nog, preparing to take a some time away from daily demands and hole up for a little gentlemanly self-care.
Do remember that whether you are in search of gifts for dear ones or ready for some well-earned personal indulgence, the last UK posting date from Captain Fawcett’s Emporium is 3pm, 20th December.
Now, should you be all of a dither, somewhat discombobulated and in a spin, fear not! For I here present gentle suggestions to assist your deliberations.
A most handsome gift is undoubtedly a Signature Series Christmas Gift Box, tightly 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. Or play a blinder with Ricki Hall’s Booze and Baccy, a luxurious fragrance, rich with memory. Perhaps you are yearning for the coming of spring, in which case Rufus Hound’s Triumphant is spot on - reminiscent of balmy days riding one’s motorcycle through England’s green and pleasant land.
Fragrance conjures an atmosphere, a mood, a precise moment and such enchantments may be achieved with little effort but great effect. Perchance consider being swept away into the smokey nights of the Far East, alighting the senses with Fawcett’s sumptuous Himalayan Temple Oud Soy Candle, resplendent in his amber whisky glass with that fine monogram glinting gold in the soft glow. Or indulge in a magic carpet ride of sensuous labyrinthine recall with Captain Fawcett’s perfumed centrepiece, the Himalayan Temple Oud Reed Diffuser, a lasting exotic scent for the dwelling, ship’s cabin or safari tent alike. A simply splendid gift for gentlemen and gentlewomen of taste.
Perhaps you lean more towards the comforts of home. Warm socks, a cup of tea and a good book (have I mentioned The Quintessential Grooming Guide for the Modern Gentleman? It’s a cracker!) Should you be bewhiskered, my Moustache Guard Mug will keep upper lips clean and dry and of course no moustache is required to don a cosy pair of Socks in gold and racing green, keeping toes toasty. If you can’t bear to hide the jaunty little moustache motif in boot or slipper, why not hang said socks by chimney on Christmas Eve? One never knows one’s luck!
Of course Santa is no secret, but should one find oneself cast in this role, I’d wager you’ll stay ahead of the pack with my casino quality playing cards, each featuring the flourishing follicles of fine fellows perfect for fostering festive feeling! Let the games begin!
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 date - 20th December 3pm.
And now...I wish you all a most Merry Christmas.
Has anyone seen my chestnuts?
