Institute Karite Paris – Shea Butter : The Sacred Tree
According to the legend, Queen Nefertiti owed her divine beauty to a marvelous cream used by some African peoples to keep their hair and skin beautiful and youthful. Centuries later, explorers to darkest Africa brought back this rare balm which was known as Shea Butter. Yet it was only very recently that dermocosmetic research demonstrated the exceptional moisturizing, nourishing, protective and restructuring activities of Shea Butter.
Based on this scientific research, Institut Karite Paris has developed a complete range of products containing Shea Butter to take natural care of sensitive or damaged skin. From timeimmemorial, the Shea tree has been a Sacred Tree, generously providing women from the Sahel with seeds to make wonderful skin care products.
Institut Karite Paris has developed a very exclusive and unique Shea Butter-based cosmetic line. The cosmetic features of Shea Butter are rich and exceptional vitamins that provide the skin’s essential needs : A and D for skin revitalization E for reoxygenating and F for elasticity.

Perfumery at Castle Forbes – Heritage with style
For almost six hundred years, Castle Forbes in the Vale of Alford, Aberdeenshire, has been the seat of Scotland’s premier lord, the Chief of Clan Forbes.
Occupying an impressive site at the heart of the 6,000-acre Forbes Estate with magnificent views across the river Don, the present castle was built in 1815 by the 17th Lord Forbes and is currently occupied by his great-great-great grandson Malcolm, the Master of Forbes, and his wife Jinny.
It is here in the converted former dairy beside Castle Forbes that we find the world’s smallest perfumery. The Castle Forbes Collection under the creative, skilled supervision of perfumer Andrew French, and using only the finest natural oils in the classical manner of Haute Parfumerie, has evolved into an exclusive range of top quality products for Canadian Gentlemen looking for an element of distinction and elegance.
