Vi Et Armis Eau De Parfum – Exploring Britain’s complex relationships with other nations and its dominance of international sea trade across the centuries, this heady, narcotic scent challenges as much as it beguiles.

Using the historical cargoes of British ships as its key notes, this addictive fragrance recalls the words of George Bernard Shaw: “Emotional excitement reaches men through Tea, Tobacco, Opium, Whisky and religion”

Paradoxical and challenging, we imagine the roots of our island nation steeped in contradictions.

  1. Bill Killinger

    …August, 1715, in the hours before midnight, somewhere in the Caribbean a Spanish galleon heavy in the water is barely making headway having hit a patch of dead wind and missed current. The hot dusty hull is full of tobacco, tea, spices, emeralds, gold, silver, and exotic riches, woods plundered from the Islands in this New World. The crew, hired, hot and restless from too much time spent in these doldrums, pass the hours below, gaming and drinking, wagering bets and listening for the cry from above that they have caught air. The lanterns on deck burn; smoldering wafts of heavy pitch smoke rise through the salty night air, caressing the mizenmast as it reaches towards the clear, starry heavens. Insects buzz around the flickering light as if in a dance, bored below, some deckhands sing a drunken Ballard; others stand broken, looking into the black, inky endless night waiting, Waiting for something to break.
    THIS is the smell of Vi Et Amazing! Just amazing.

  2. John Peirce

    You board the old ship and enter the captain’s cabin, with its wooden and leather furniture and bookcases filled with leather-bound books.
    It is warmed by a fire in the corner burning peat and logs.
    On the table are bowls of oranges, spices, tea and pipe tobacco, a box of cigars and an oily rag used to treat the timbers.
    As you absorb all the aromas emanating from around the room, you also notice faint whiffs of opium and incense hanging in the smoky air.
