In 1751 the novelist Henry Fielding proclaimed that ‘Gin-shops are undoubtedly the Nurseries of all manner of Vice and Wickedness.’

Seeking to illustrate this downfall of public virtue, between 1732-34 the English artist William Hogarth published eight canvases depicting A Rake’s Progress. One of Hogarth’s most infamous works, the protagonist Tom Rakewell’s ruin is depicted by his exposure to high living, prostitutes and gambling.

Inspired by these Hogarth’s scenes of degeneracy within the Georgian metropolis we revive their spirit in Rake & Ruin – a fragrance capturing an evening in a tavern, where gin flows, good times are had, and the slide begins…

This powerful Eau De Parfum (30% concentration) features the botanical ingredients of the drinks that filled the glasses, the dark woods of the floors on which they were spilt and animalic allusions to the debauched deeds that took place between them.

    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!
