Castle Forbes - Scotland's Premier Perfumery

Welcome to Castle Forbes Collection of fine fragrances, shaving creams and aftershave balms for men. Created in the tiny perfumery at Castle Forbes in Scotland, elegantly packaged and carrying the family crest.
Some say the Castle Forbes men's range of shaving creams, aftershave balms and fragrances are the very best in the world, that's some claim and in our opinion they are certainly at least the equal of any other brand out there.
Try the magnificent 1445 Eau de Parfum and you'll be hooked for life. Their lavender shaving cream is an essential must have if you have sensitive skin while their lime and 1445 shaving creams must surely be the nicest scented shaving creams money can buy.

You can browse the complete Castle Forbes Collection.

About Castle Forbes

Castle Forbes was built in 1815 by the 17th Lord Forbes, Scotland’s premier Lord and Chief of the clan Forbes. The perfumery in the castle grounds is inspired by the beauty of the countryside and the plants and flowers growing in the grounds. First created in 1996 when a former dairy building behind the castle was converted into the world's smallest perfumery.

Today the name Castle Forbes is most closely associated with its collection of fine fragrances and their world famous shaving creams. Which are all presented bearing the Forbes family crest, a sign of the provenance and heritage that goes in to producing each item.

It adds extra lubrication or razor glide helping protect your skin during shaving.
