The founder of this niche perfume brand BeauFort London is Leo Crabtree. He found the inspiration for the fragrances in the rich naval history of the United Kingdom. But not only the nice heroic parts of these stories are depicted, also the warfare (gunpowder, rum and blood), trade and explorations found their way into the fragrances. The first line of BeauFort is the 'Come Hell or High Water' collection. Each of them fragrances with their own powerful character.
Crabtree is from a diverse family of sea-men, artists and creative spirits. He was born on a house boat on the Thames en surrounded by a father and grandfather who loved boats the story of BeauFort is intertwined with personal interests. Next to the founder of BeauFort London, Crabtree is a known musician. He started BeauFort to create his own, and self acclaimed 'best of the world', mustache wax.
Crabtree designed the fragrances in close collaboration with Julie Marlowe (Tonnerre, Vi et Armis, Fathom V, Lignum Vitae) and Julie Dunkley (Coeur de Noir, Iron Duke).
