BeauFort London - Fathom V (EdP) 50ml
Broadly taking its inspiration from The Tempest (in which Shakespeare conjures images of violent weather, shipwrecks and magical islands), the chief theme of ‘Fathom V’ is a phrase gleaned from “Ariel’s Song” within the play.
‘Sea-Change’, which we now have come to understand as ‘a transformation’ or ‘metamorphosis’ first appeared in the play, and has now passed into common usage. The eternally changing state of the sea – in constant flux between calm and wild – is our departure point here, explored though the use of seemingly contradictory raw materials in ‘overdosed’ concentrations: Salt meets earth, sparkling herbals blend with dark mosses, bright floral notes meet intense dark spices and pepper.
By contrasting the above and below, light and shade, we imagine the shifting state of the sea: its intensity – the allure of its dark depths.
Top notes: Tangerine, Juniper berries, Black currant, Green leafy notes, Earthy notes;
Heart Notes: Thyme, Lily, Jasmine, Ylang-ylang, Ginger, Cumin, Black pepper, Mimosa;
Base notes: Patchouli, Vetiver, Moss, Salt, Frankincense, Atlas cedar, Amber.
BeauFort London is an expression of Leo Crabtree’s deep affinity for the sea, along with his enduring fascination towards the darker aspects of British history. Named for the Beaufort wind force scale, the name represents a way to look at and understand ourselves: constant, enduring, ultimately changeable, and potentially destructive. With stories inspired by Britain’s complicated past, the scents examine this historical legacy through the prism of personal expression, taking snapshots and stories of history as a means of drawing together disparate notes to create sensational olfactory sensations. This collection, title ‘Come Hell or High Water’, draws together three fragrances with unique and diverse characters to express this shared history, and its tempestuous relationship with our modern image of ourselves.
