Coeur De Noir Eau De Parfum – here we consider the relationship between the sea and the art it has inspired.
Crabtree uses his grandfather’s pen drawings of luxury yachts, his father’s library of nautical fiction and his own tattoos as references. Accords of black ink dominate here; west Indian spiced rum; papers lost and found; the familiar dry accords of leather bound books balanced with warm enigmatic notes of vanilla pipe tobacco. All finely based around a dark heart of birch tar and labdanum.
