Coeur de Noir
Coeur De Noir by Beaufort – Here we consider the relationship between the sea and the art it has inspired.
Pen and ink boat drawings, old nautical fiction libraries and tattoos are mentioned here in this warm, dark fragrance. Predominantly black ink chords; West Indian spicy rum; lost and found papers; the familiar dry chord of leather-bound books balanced with enigmatic warm notes of vanilla pipe tobacco. All around a dark heart of birch tar and labdanum.
Leo Crabtree is a musician turned perfumer. He is currently the drummer of the British band, “The Prodigy”. During his free time he focuses his deep passion for the darker side of British history and culture in creating his radically avant guarde perfumes for his brand, Beaufort.
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. The flamboyantly suited and bearded musician has loved fragrance all his life and drew on his fascination with the darker aspects of British history, the nation’s nautical heritage and his own childhood living on a boat on the River Thames when creating the ‘Come Hell or High Water’ collection. 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.
