Message in a bottle
For the first fragrances, Desmond drew the feelings and memories that inspired him in panoramic illustrations. He then explored his creation, isolating details in the diptyque oval. A delicate souvenir that we discover on the back of the label when turning the bottle around, his message in the bottle.
When Yves and Desmond returned home from Greece, they brought with them their memories of wild fig groves and a unique gift for Christiane. In a box they combined little treasures that held their memories of their trip: a fig leaf, a shard of marble from the Acropolis, fragments of Mycenae ceramics, a seashell from their beach… Many years later, this delicate gift inspired the creation of Philosykos. The Eau de Toilette is a tribute to Desmond and his landscapes of the soul, his lasting gift to the Maison.
