Castle Forbes was created from the world's smallest perfumery, located
in the picturesque surroundings of Castle Forbes on the banks of the
River Don in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The castle and 6,000 acre estate
is the ancestral home of the Chief of the Forbes Clan. The perfumery
was originally based in a small dairy building within the grounds and
initially only made bespoke fragrances for private clients.
Our mission was to create a selection of unique scents that captured the
essence of the castle and the surrounding landscapes and, after much
painstaking development work, our carefully crafted range of products
bear the Forbes Family emblem.
From such small beginnings, 20 years later, Castle Forbes has now
developed the ultimate range of male grooming products and fine
fragrances which are renowned for their quality and performance. Our
distinctive ethos is born from our passion to use the best that nature can
provide by selecting only the finest quality sustainable Essential Oils
directly from the growers for use in our authentic formulations, our
mission being to bring originality and sophistication to our elite scents.
Using unique, handcrafted formulations with natural ingredients, we are
able to produce shaving products which perform like no other brand and
are free from parabens, colouring, artificial fragrances and are not tested
