The focal point for the creations of Beaufort London is the naval history of Great Britain; the real part and an imagined and embellished part. Always with a dark and strange side, which is the fascinating thing about Beaufort London.
In 1751 the novelist Henry Fielding proclaimed that ‘Gin-shops are undoubtedly the Nurseries of all manner of Vice and Wickedness.’
Seeking to illustrate this downfall of public virtue, between 1732-34 the English artist William Hogarth published eight canvases depicting A Rake’s Progress. One of Hogarth’s most infamous works, the protagonist Tom Rakewell’s ruin is depicted by his exposure to high living, prostitutes and gambling.
Inspired by the debauched scenes of Georgian London imagined by the satirist and caricaturist William Hogarth (1697-1764), the second creation in BeauFort London’s Revenants Collection brings them to life.
Much of Hogarth’s work depicts the moral degeneration and fall from grace of the youth of the time, and describes their paths to penury, madness and often death.
The fragrance captures a night of debauchery in a tavern, where the gin flows, good times had, and the fall begins…
Feel again the botanical ingredients of the drinks that filled the glasses, the dark woods of the floors on which they were poured and the debauched acts that ensued.
