Antigua


$160.00


(100ml/3.4oz Eau de Parfum high concentration)

Is this a fresh Oriental or a fruity Chypre? The sparkling, bright Antigua is hard to classify. It opens with a fresh, quirky burst of bergamot, grapefruit, lime and guava. Rose oil, fig leaf and white peaches underline the extreme femininity of the fragrance in the heart notes. A warm an sensuous dry down of musk and vanilla slowly unveils patchouli, cedar wood, vetiver and oak moss.

Top note: bergamot, grapefruit, guava, white peach

Heart notes: rose essence, fig leaves, patchouli

Base notes: vetiver, cedar wood, sandal wood, oak moss, vanilla

The house of Phaedon was founded by two Parisian aesthetes, A. Phillipe & M. Stromberg. A zoomorphic emblem representing two Assyrian griffins crowns the legendary Phaedon of Elis. Born in Elis, Greece in 400 B.C., then captured by Spartans and 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 scents, composed by guest perfumers, come in either eau de toilette or highly concentrated eau de parfum.
