Captain Peabody Fawcett, Ret., an intrepid explorer, disappeared in 1905 while attempting to navigate a tributary to the Congo River. Rescue parties found no trace of his expedition. Then, in 1997, a battered old trunk turned up at an estate sale. Inside it, a dressing case contained exquisite ointments, salves, unguents, and the missing adventurer’s long-lost journals. Among the tales of hardship, derring-do, and wonders seen were meticulous lists of exotic ingredients for use in the captain’s grooming regimen. Faithfully following these recipes, Fawcett’s concoctions—along with his world-renowned moustache wax—are now available to the discerning gentleman. Find them at
