A new “Fig-Scented” thing to add to the “Fig-Scented Things” category: the Philosykos range from beautiful luxury fragrance brand Diptyque. Most famous, perhaps, for their gorgeous candles and room sprays, Diptyque also have quite a broad range of scents and body products. I had no idea that Diptyque made body products! Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise to visit the store in Mayfair and discover that not only do they have their classic Fig scent (Figuier) but a fresher, lighter take called Philosykos. It’s still quite earthy and woody, but I think that it’s more wearable than the Figuier.
The “Collection Voyage” is a sweet little travel set – there’s a 75ml body lotion and shower gel, both wrapped up in a little cotton bag. The products are very generously scented, so you don’t really need to wear a fragrance over the top. Although it would be nice to layer over another scent, perhaps – maybe a Rose or Orange-Blossom. I shall experiment and get back to you!
The Diptyque store is on Brook Street, London W1, but if you want to buy online the set is £25 from John Lewis
