In the Eau de Parfum, another side of the fig is revealed. The fruit withdraws, as the white cedar lands to heighten the woody intensity of the tree and the smell of bark baking under the midday sun.
The memory of a Greek summer at Mount Pelion where, to get to the sea, there was a natural grove of wild sun-soaked fig trees to cross. Philosykos is an ode to the entire fig tree: the green freshness of the leaves, the milky flavour of the figs, the density of the wood.
“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.
