Terror & Magnificence is the third issue in the House of BeauFort's Revenants collection.
By contrasting darkness with invigorating complexity, perfumer Pia Long has combined a vivid olfactory impression of the man, his works and his myth. Accords of Somalian Incense, dry woods and wet stone meld with opium smoke, papyrus and kyphi, underpinned by a base of Haitian Vetiver, Labdanum, Benzoin and Myrrh resins. As perfumer Pia Long comments “the fragrance we created feels like it has always existed, as though we’ve conjured a myth into being from the ether”
The product’s packaging bears a representation of Hawksmoor’s celebrated work – Christ Church Spitalfields, in East London.
