Description & Details
Diptyque Philosykos Eau de Parfum 75ml: The memory of a Greek summer at Mount Pelion. To get to the sea, there was a natural grove of wild fig trees to cross through. The sun at its zenith heated the earth, the dry wind carried the scent of the trees and their fruit. Philosykos is an ode to the entire fig tree: the green freshness of the leaves, the density of the white wood, the milky flavour of the figs. Olfactory collection: woody. Raw materials: fig leaves, fig tree sap, fig tree wood. Olfactory accident: black pepper. In the eau de parfum, the fig tree reveals itself in a different way. The flavour of the fruit recedes while white cedar underscores the woody strength of the tree and its bark warmed by the sun at its zenith.
FUN FACT: Philosykos” means “friend of the fig tree” in Greek. A tree whose leaves and a few branches brought back in a memory box was the source of inspiration.
