Philosykos Bath & Shower Gel, Diptyque
Diptyque's Bath & Shower Gel - Where does one begin? For now, let's just say that ne'er before in the history of lusciouscargo.com has there been such a hue and cry over a product. Apparently the original bottles were being emptied far too quickly for our customers' tastes...
Utter freshness with a deeply perfumed shower gel that slowly morphs into an airy-light foam, enriched with glycerin. The first joyful step towards the spritzing of the eau de toilette, it leaves the skin soft and lightly scented with fragrance. And, needless to say, a must-have for all of the layerers in us.
Philosykos contains all parts of the fig tree: the roots, the milky sap of the fruit, the trunk, and above all, the freshness of the leaves in every phase of their growth. White cedar, which adds to its persistence and aura, makes it even sunnier.
Philosykos is a tribute to Desmond Knox-Leet and the memory of the white house on the slopes of Mount Pelion in Thessaly, where he lived during his Greek summers. To get to the sea every day, his path took him through a field of wild fig trees - a path which we would love to take ourselves someday..
The success of Philosykos - the friend of the fig tree in Greek and reference to Plato, who adored its fruit and claimed it had the power to heighten intelligence - may be attributed to its natural olfactive balance.
This is fig as only Diptyque could do it---created in 1996 and wowing 'em ever since..
