    Tonnere and Vi Et Armis are unwearable.
    I hope in IRON DUKE,RAKE E RAIN and COUR DE NOIR.

    I tried about 5 of them and even though I respected them, they were just too brutal for me. Lots of birch tar, smoke and oud going on.

    They all have a 'gothic' feel to them

    I can understand aficionados of 'heavy/death metal' loving them though.

    Fathom V is quite nice - an aquatic Lily but with aquatic notes being restrained (no or minimal calone) and an extended lush dry down. I was compelled to give it a thumbs up in the reviews section.

    Interesting but unwearable. This is the type of niche house that tries to recreate a time, a place and its scents which it manages to do. You know, a crime scene where arson was involved. I just do not want to smell like that.
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    Tried a few but don't have enough experience with this house. So far the ones I've tried were OK but nothing special for me.

    I tried tonnere and as others have said it's a powerful smokehouse. Impressive, but right now unwearable. Of course, what's unwearable today may well become a favorite tomorrow...

    I own a decant of Vi et Armis and it's growing on me - this week I gave it its first full wearing. There is something about that nosebleed-meets-liquory-peat-on-a-pirate-ship smell that gets under my skin. And my partner thinks its great also.

    The aesthetic of the brand makes me giggle. All gothy and vampiric and steampunk-esque. But whatever...let them have their fun.

    I look forward to wearing Lignum Vitae soon - I bought a small decant of it last week and it's enroute to me.

    Tonnere I smelled and didn't like it - it's kinda gross. I didn't risk buying a decant of that...I might not want to even touch the bottle again. Blech.

    The rest I have not smelled - but I want to. Especially that 'dirt' one...very green...the name escapes me now but it's the one Turin gave a favorable review to.

    Quite possibly the most vile thing I’ve smelled in my fragrance journey

    It’s put off the rest of the line for me

    That is my experience with Beaufort as well - at least with the couple I have tried: Iron Duke and Coeur De Noir. Of these two, Coeur De Noir is endlessly smoky with dark depth that did not seem to have an end in sight. Iron Duke was quite brutal with the gunpowder note that, at least initially, was so strong and in-your-face that I didn't think I'd last past the opening - but I survived that and got to experience the mid and later developments. Both of these conjure the imagery of dark, dusty, empty voids in hell, with the wood charred and still burning, and you sticking your nose right in the middle of a mostly burnt log with red hot ambers all over. Both evoke a similar sensation of endless smoky burning leathery birch-laced world. Extremely well done, don't take these comments as negative - you just have to be in the mood for this level brutality, and must enjoy this type of fragrance composition to appreciate them for what they are. Definitely not for the faint of heart, and not for aficionados of freshie aquatics - these are absolutely and completely opposite of that. If you like light and airy freshies - stay away from this house. If you love deep (and I mean DEEEEEEEEP!!!) dark smoky birch woods - definitely give this house a try - in this space they are some of the most interesting (even if rather challenging) creations.

    I love what they are doing but I'm a huge smokey woods fan. Couer de Noir is my favorite, but I haven't tried the one that just came out yet. If you don't like smoke, tar and woods than steer clear for sure, but if you do like those kinds of fragrances, this is a house to check out for sure!

    I liked Vi et Armis but my wife doesn't. She says it makes me smell like I've been smoking pot. I think she means Elon Musk.

    I have to add that the house marketing doesn't really do it for me. When there's too much piffle I lose interest in the product.

    Interesting. Tonnere is on my list of gunpowder frags that I want to get around to trying. Sounds like Iron Duke should be on that list too.

    Did you get grassy and dirt notes from this one?

    I purchased and sold off both Vi et armis and Fathom V.
    Initially I loved both..but found them totally unwearable in public.

    Tried 1805 & East India. Nasty, unwearable juices the pair of them.

    Lignum Vitae is probably the only one you can wear out and about, with Coeur de noir being second but still a bit of a sell

    I've only tried Vi et Armis (actually I bought it blind).

    Your favorite maiden aunt has stockpiled on the after dinner mints.

    I'll have to try it when it's colder.
