Castle Forbes takes its name from the estate of Lord and Lady Forbes in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The brand grew out of fragrance ideas created for their own home, gradually scaling up to become one of the most luxurious brands in the field of male grooming. Each product bears the Forbes family emblem and is proudly free from parabens, colourings, artificial fragrances and animal testing.
If you're looking for a devoted and passionate British brand with great products and highly positive reviews, Castle Forbes is it.
This 1445 Moisturising Aftershave Balm carries Castle Forbes' signature 1445 scent, a masculine cologne-type fragrance that will leave you smelling like a 'freshly scrubbed gentleman'. It is named after the year in which the clan chief of the Forbes estate was made the first lord of Scotland.
As each shave can remove two to three layers of skin, it's important to nourish and sooth your face after shaving. The natural witch hazel makes this a calming balm to gently close the pores and firm up the epidermis; it is moisturising and repleneshing without leaving a sticky residue.
In terms of smell, you'll find top notes of petitgrain and lemon evolving into middle notes of tarragon and lavender, interwoven with base notes of vetiver, clove and patchouli. It pairs perfectly with Castle Forbes' 1445 Shaving Cream and Eau de Parfum for the full 1445 experience. You can also browse the rest of the Castle Forbes range, or aftershaves by other brands.
