Not long ago I went to the mailbox to discover a singularly unremarkable brown mailer addressed to yours truly. On the back was a large wax seal with the initials C.F. elegantly emblazoned upon it. My curiosity was piqued and I attacked the envelope with a wanton disregard for personal safety. A floor full of shredded envelope, a few paper cuts and one hang nail later I held aloft my prize. I small tin of wax with the Captain Fawcett logo upon it! Hurray for me!
This was a sample of Captain Fawcett’s Moustache Wax in a firm variety. I really like the original formula of Captain’s Fawcett and my waxes are all on the medium side of the medium to firm scale. Yes, sometimes my death defyingly dense moustache will droop after a busy day but that’s fine with me. I was excited to dry a firm wax from a name I trust to see if there was anything to a stronger holding wax.
