Beaufort London is an expression of Leo Crabtree’s affinity for the sea, along with his 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 past, this collection, entitled "Come Hell or High Water", draws together three unique and diverse fragrances to express this shared history and its tempestuous relationship with our modern image of ourselves.
East India was inspired by Britain's complicated relationship with overseas nations, thanks to Britain's dominance of the international sea trade routes embodied in the East India company during the 19th Century. The scent uses ingredients that the company specialized in importing and exporting. It is a complex fragrance that features top notes of cardamom, black pepper and tea leaf; middle notes of whiskey, incense and opium; and base notes of tobacco, birch and oud. East India is an eau de parfum, edp.
