A timeless & yet refreshingly elegant scent, Captain Fawcett’s Barberism® collaboration with Sid Sottung has produced a most outstanding Eau de Parfum. Classically influenced yet modern, boasting top notes of Lime & Orange, mid notes of Rose & Galbanum along with the earthier base notes of Cedarwood, Patchouli & Musk. In truth, a simply delightful alchemic concoction has been created for your delectation.
At an early age Sid Sottung apprenticed at a traditional Italian Barbers in Brooklyn, after being brought up in New York City. Old school barbershops; the hair tonics, aftershaves and grease-based pomades mingled with tobacco smoke and work weary, honest sweat make for the fragrance’s masculine aromas.
The collections overriding influences are to be found amongst Sid’s personal recollections of a largely forgotten era including fond memories of his beloved father Ronald who worked on Hellcat’s at the Grumman Airplane factory based on Long Island New York. The pin-up girl representing the sweetheart left at home emblazoned on the nose of many American aircraft doomed never to return from their fateful missions. The age of prohibition and the speakeasies run by sharp suited, often ruthless mobsters dressed to kill.
Available in a 50ml Eau de Parfum.
