Blood, smoking tobacco and a sea shanty
The first time I tried this perfume I was unprepared and it stongly repelled me, I seemed to smell such a potent blood note combined with tobacco that it gave me a rotting vibe. The more I was able to test this creation on other types of skin the more it turned out birch and gunpowder would be more prominent on my skin while tea and whisky would be more detectable on my relatives' skin.
After extensive testing this open up on my skin as an iron sword piercing through flesh while drying down to a beautiful whisky, tea and opium barrel sailing back.

i lay down my arms
The scent starts with me with the smell of blood (iron). Then it goes over to metallic smells. At the end remains only sage (is probably the tea - I smell but only sage... or rather: sage candies, which are given for colds). Since I hated these candies as a child, the smell is pure torture for me.
I bought the tasting set of Beaufort. Not all scents resonate with me - but others I find quite strong.
But this fragrance is definitely my "lowlight". 1/10 points. The 2ml I will definitely no longer anlangen

East India 1749
The old brig seems to lie ghostly cumbersome in the sea, the intervals are unusually long, in which the hypnotic groaning and creaking of the keel works its way into the two-master's beams, as if someone were very slowly pulling a piece of wood over a washboard. Then there is the rolling of a bottle over the planks, with each interval once from one side to the other, before it encounters resistance with a light blow. Hardly any wind. Weakly a few waves slosh around the bow, muffled gurgling, otherwise everything is dead quiet. What about the crew? There were these radio messages last night, from Pembroke and Namur, the cyclone I can't open my eyes. It smells burnt. Did we have fire on board? Then there is an almost pungent ethereal smell, like camphor, that must be the pepper that was stowed next to the smoked tea, probably the cargo got into each other in the storm.
The Chinese Lapsang Souchong, which they smoke over pine roots, it is possible that it smells like this. I perceive him more and more. It seems to interweave with brighter, freshly citric smoke. Did we have Indian incense? Did he catch fire, too? Was there a fire? The opium. Where the hell were we? I can't make it out. Is it burned, lost? Will we sink?
What was that? The bottle. She must have cracked. I must have fainted again. How much time may have passed? An hour? I still can't open my eyes. That silence. What about the others? Scottish single malt, it smells smoky by itself, damn, it was my last bottle of whisky. The black Zware tobacco, it must be here in my cabin, probably even here in the bunk, among all the old burnt wood. If the company knew that I prefer to smoke Dutch tobacco. Whether it even matters anymore?
I think it's getting dark. The sea is very still now. I lie here in uncertainty for half an eternity. It smells of burnt wood, the smoky note in my whisky, which has smeared over the remains of the earth and ashes on the cabin planks. I don't think I'll be unloading my cargo at any port. Sorry, George. Rule Britannia...

Unabashed Funk
Not sure everyone wants to go around smelling like East India, but if you do, this is the way. You can sense the quality here, beneath the fragrant funk--the rich tobacco and whiskey, forbidden opium, etc, the birch tar. Must be the oud lofting up the potent stench. I'd wear this if I were braver, but I'm not. I'll leave Vi Et Armis (force and arms) to the Genghis Khans among us, the Alexander the Greats, the Theodore Roosevelts, the Chaka Zulus, the Geronimos, the Hemingways. It's from Beaufort, the London perfume house founded by the somewhat darkly free-thinking Leo Crabtree, so I guess I'd best add Henry VIII to the list.

Initially bitter spicy-green, this boozy smoky-leathery Winter fragrance slowly settles to a gentlier warm-woody base. Challenging!
