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.

“Emotional excitement reaches men through tea, tobacco, opium, whisky, and religion”
George Bernard Shaw

Vi Et Armis is an explosively spicy oriental Eau de Parfum, inspired by Great Britain’s dominance of international sea trade across the centuries.

Its main notes allude to the cargoes carried across the oceans in the holds of British ships: exotic, sometimes illegal goods, contained in dark chests, which were traded between various places around the world.

Tea meets sticky opium at the front of the composition, vying for dominance. Smoky woods and tarry planks form the base, with rich oud and incense complementing the smoky spices and alcoholic notes.

Beaufort London has created an intense, challenging and provocative fragrance.

Perfumer Julie Marlowe was given the task of creating a perfume that would be a virtual collision of cultures, that would be a fragrance as complex, contradictory and dark as the different chapters of British history.

Powerful Eau de Parfum with 30% perfume concentration.
