Fathom V Eau De Parfum – [Fathom – A unit of length equal to six feet, chiefly used in reference to the depth of water]

Broadly taking its inspiration from The Tempest (in which Shakespeare conjures images of violent weather, shipwrecks and magical islands), the chief theme of ‘Fathom V’ is a phrase gleaned from “Ariel’s Song” within the play.

‘Sea-Change’, which we now have come to understand as ‘a transformation’ or ‘metamorphosis’ first appeared in the play, and has now passed into common usage. The eternally changing state of the sea – in constant flux between calm and wild – is our departure point here, explored though the use of seemingly contradictory raw materials in ‘overdosed’ concentrations: Salt meets earth, sparkling herbals blend with dark mosses, bright floral notes meet intense dark spices and pepper.

By contrasting the above and below, light and shade, we imagine the shifting state of the sea: its intensity – the allure of its dark depths.

A fragrance for the intrepid: challenging preconceptions of what ‘Aquatic’ truly means…

Beaufort London Fathom V Eau De Parfum Sample

“Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.” – Ariels Song

  1. Gareth (verified owner)

    Amazing, one of my favourites. Fresh and musky all at the same time. Unique and clever.

  2. Cary Chapman (verified owner)

    Long lasting fragrance. Only 4 stars as despite its cool ? aroma it starts to smell sweet on my skin after about half an hour

  3. Jeff Dennis (verified owner)

    Love the ‘greenness’ of this fragrance. It’s got the feel of a summer fragrance but with more edge to it

    In the spirit of full disclosure, I was invited to review the scent by way of email from BeauFort, after purchasing a few samples. Ordinarily that throws me off –
    When Amazon immediately wants to know what I think of the watch battery I just bought, I hesitate to review it – it’s as if Uber wants my opinion about the inflation of the back left tire during my last ride. But when BeauFort asks me what I think of their concoctions, I instead imagine the Maserati brothers conference-calling to ask if my week-end test-drive of the Quattroporte was perhaps somehow adequate.
    My reviews of this house’s offerings will be carbon-copies – I’m absolutely not an expert, but even I recognized the authenticity, eccentricity, power, and quality in every vial I received.
    In sampling six or so, it seems to me that this house possesses a certain kind of guerlinade of its own, very distinguished and very modern; all the way to the dry-down I continued to enjoy the opening notes of each scent. The duration is terrific, but nobody sharing public spaces with me has remarked on the silage (But who does that? I wish everyone would).
    My precis: BeauFort is making super-strong juice, artful and bold.
    Everyone buy this, but Wait, Me First!
