Captain Fawcett

The Old Apothecary proudly house Captain Fawcett's delectable range of first class gentlemen’s grooming requisites

In 1905 Captain Peabody Fawcett R.N Ret’d, the intrepid and eminent Edwardian explorer, disappeared whilst attempting to navigate the Congo River. No trace was ever found of his seemingly doomed expedition… until that is, in 1997, an old battered trunk purchased at a house clearance sale. Incredibly, amongst its decaying and mildewed contents was found an exquisite dressing case containing salves, unguents, ointments . These precise formulae have been faithfully followed and Fawcett’s original potions, along with his world renowned Moustache Wax are now available to the discerning gentleman for the first time in over a century.
