Grafton Shaving Cream Bowl
Grafton is another fragrance whose name is intertwined with and inspired by the rich naval tradition of Britain. This classical, woody fragrance with spicy oriental notes was named to commemorate a long line of HMS Grafton battleships. The completion of the first HMS Grafton ship in 1679 marked the beginning of a lengthy and noble history for a long line of ships that have borne that name and have served throughout the world since the 17th century to the present day. The name ‘Grafton’ was given to Truefitt’s newly blended fragrance in 1983 at the suggestion of one of HMS Grafton’s officers who, while being attended to by a Truefitt’s barber, particularly liked this unmistakably masculine fougère aroma and suggested that the new fragrance be named after the gracious line of HM battleships.
