Beaufort is a niche fragrance house founded by musician and writer Leo Crabtree. His inspiration came from British history, and came to life thanks to his obsession with fragrances. In 2015, the brand launched its artwork "Come Hell or High Water". Through this collection, elements from British history meet, some imaginary and some real, creating collages of scent that express themes such as fighting, trade and inquiry. So how was such a perfume born? Some interesting facts: Crabtree's first home, born into a diverse family composed mostly of artists, psychologists and sailors, was actually a boat on the Thames. “The sea, its traditions, its superstitions and its way of life are ingrained in me. The London-based brand name Beaufort London, which originated from the 1805 Wind Power Ladder raised by Navy Officer Sir Francis Beaufort, represents a kind of framework in which we can understand ourselves", Crabtree notes. "The spirit is constant, continuous, but ultimately changing and clear. Which can be destructive." Crabtree's love of life, fragrance, and engaging in elements: The darker part of British history served as a movement for the collection of the brand which was supposed to be bold, sometimes contrasting, but constantly driven by innate curiosity and a desire to expand the experience. So how did it all start? Crabtree testifies that: "The whole thing started with me in the fjord, I had a mustache then, and that breeze hit me. It kind of emphasized the importance of better mustache wax." It turns out that he did indeed continue to design such wax as his first product, experimenting with fragrances as well. In order to make the wax smell good. He adds: "It also made me appreciate right what an amazing power the spirit is! It's something we can not see, we can not control it, but it has such power over our lives." He said Daniel Defoe had previously tried to build a ladder and failed. Only in 1805 did it finally work out, hence the inspiration for the first perfume. Beaufort - Working with some of the best perfumes in the UK.
