A fragrant love letter dedicated to his mother, Bernadette Margaret Evelyn Theresa is a generous perfume abundant with radiant apricot and exotic florals on a transparent base of patchouli, resins, musks and woods.
BMET has a nod to the everything-and-the-kitchen-sink too ambers of the late 1970s and 80s, but the weight at which Freddie restrains the composition keeps it feeling fresh, modern and contemporary while still retaining a feeling of sepia toned nostalgia, warmth, comfort and heartfelt affection.
Mabel’s Tooth is a tribute to one of Freddie’s dogs. Every Christmas she was given a small piece of toffee. When she passed away, they buried her with a piece between her teeth. The toffee is there in the perfume too. Along with dark, jammy, stewed fruits and hazelnut. Freddie balances out the sweet with bitter coffee, leather and woods. He wraps all of this with a woven tapestry of sun-cured tobacco, golden oats and skin-hugging musks.
Where Mabel’s Tooth really excels, though, is the volume in which Freddie composes it at. As intriguing as its odour profiles are, he keeps them tuned to a wearable level, mixing the strange with the familiar to keep the experience of wearing Mabel’s Tooth a comfortable one.
