We are excited to announce that we will soon be carrying Furbo aftershaves, colognes, shaving soaps and shower gels. The shipment has left Italy and should arrive next week (Customs willing). Stay tuned.

Nice, Phil. 
I've read it's comparable to Floid Blue.

I went through a bottle of the Blu years ago and it's excellent.  An excellent addtion to the BG catalog.

Marco just texted me showing the package as it left his shop to the courier. I thought you might be interested to see. They are green.

Furbo pre-shave gel will be included in my initial shipment. This pre-shave gel is the best selling pre-shave in Italy.

I looked up “dolor” on google translate. Raise your hand if you thought it meant “pain.” Actually “without pain” is a good tag line for a pre-shave product.

Looking forward to seeing the product line as it arrives. Furbo seems like a worthy range. Funky artwork and environmentally principled.

Is the blue comparable to the Floid Blue ?

I still have one 400 ml bottle left of the Floid Blue, but I rarely ever use it, because it's discontinued and I love my 400 ml Proraso Green and Red AS splahes even more at the moment (and I can buy them very cheaply at a danish webshop at the moment - like $20 a 400 ml bottle and NO they are definitely not fake)

Update:

Just found out my local danish shaving webstore has Furbo - but out of stock of course.

He carges $22 for a 300 ml bottle blue Furbo AS splash.

So they are available in 300 ml bottles.....

Thanks Claus, I too am slowly milking my last Floid Blue and eagerly awaiting whatever Phil manages to come up with. Figaro blue and Epsilon Blue are nice as is the Spanish Aqua Velva, I have high hopes for the Furbo. Proraso Green will always be a staple for me.

Figaro and Epsilon Blue are both good substitutes for Floid Blue.  I prefer Floid Blue and believe it was specially designed as a Floid clone.  

I will definitely be getting Furbo.  I used it years ago and have a positive recollection of it.  I have an affinity for "Blue" barbershop aftershaves.  With the exception of Epsilon,  all the aftershaves in the photo are used up and out of my rotation.  I now use Epsilon exclusively as my "Blue" Aftershave, and will be adding Furbo.
