Phaedon was born in the Greek city of Elis in 400 B.C. As a youth, he was captured during the battle between Elis and Sparta then bought by an Athenian slave trader. He was serving meal when one of the guests asked his new master a question. Phaedon was the one who answered the guest, who was none other than Socrates. Dazzled by Phaedon's wit and beauty, the philosopher bought the young man and made him his disciple. Phaedon's highly concentrated home fragrances and scented candles are produced by master candle-makers working for the most prestigious brands.
