BeauFort London

Terror & Magnificence

eau de parfum



Terror & Magnificence is a perfume with a slightly smoky feel, the fullness of tobacco leaf and incense. The black pepper and vetiver make this fragrance elegant and 'lighter'. For BeauFort London, this is one of the more 'modest' scents while remaining exciting and with a full character.

Terror & Magnificence is inspired by the work of architect Nicholas Hawksmoor (1661-1736) whose ominous structures adorn the London cityscape. On the package, we see Hawksmoor’s Christ Church Spitalfields in East London.

Hawksmoor - also called "the Devil's architect" - was the first to introduce elements of Egyptology into the traditional church building. These peculiar architectural details and his recent reputation as a freemason have given rise to speculations that occult symbolism influenced his methods and punctuated his designs with an inherent "terror and splendor."


Saffron, black pepper, birch tar, incense (Kyphi) from Somalia, tobacco, papyrus cane, myrrh, benzoin, labdanum, Haitian vetiver, wet stone accord

BeauFort London
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).
