The year in which Nelson won the Battle of Trafalgar and lost his life: in the same year, Sir Francis Beaufort introduced his ‘wind force scale’. This scent imagines the powers (arbitrary and foreseeable) of battle itself. Powerful accords of smoke, gunpowder, blood and brandy are infused with sea spray and a penetrating citrus note. Lime’s floral, bright intensity is the acid that balances the alkaline of gunpowder and smoke, fresh from the cannon. Salty, viscous blood disperses throughout the mead-like golden, nectar of a private stock of brandy. Sea spray reinforces the saline, tannic quality of blood, while amber echoes the warm, earthy sweetness of brandy. Fir balsam and cedarwood inject sap-thick notes of clean refreshment into this heady, man-overboard brew. A fragrance that is bold yet ultimately refined, provocative yet unique.
