How often is a fragrance house named after a Greek philosopher? Phaedo of Elis was a young man of noble birth forced into slavery in Athens. His mind and beauty so impressed Socrates that he persuaded friends to buy the young man’s freedom, and made him his disciple. Little did Phaedo know that nearly twenty-five centuries later, two Parisian aesthetes with a passion for travel and the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean would perpetuate his memory through scents… In order to keep the focus on fragrance, the owners of Phaedon will disclose neither their names nor those of the perfumers who composed their line, though we’ve managed to learn that two of them were signed by the brilliantly gifted and prolific Pierre Guillaume, whose company produces the scents. The six eaux de toilette are sold in eco-friendly, splash-or-spray refillable bottles.
