I was approached by British independent perfume brand, BeauFort London, to produce an historical piece for their latest range.

This unique and dramatic artwork was created to launch ‘Iron Duke’ which is the first of a range of perfumes in BeauFort’s new collection ‘Revenants’.

‘Revenants’ presents a collection of olfactory impressions of figures from Britain’s historical past. Volume 1 ‘Iron Duke’ is a tribute to Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington (1769-1852). Perfumer Julie Dunkley, has created a strikingly powerful fragrance with animal depths – an essence of the celebrated horseman, warrior and politician.

For this commission, we worked closely with Karl Greenwood and Zana Cousins-Greenwood of the Stampede Stunt Company. Their particular expertise proved invaluable in creating the overall effect.
