Diptyque Philosykos

"The memory of a Greek summer at Mount Pelion where, to get to the sea, there was a natural grove of wild sun-soaked fig trees to cross. Philosykos is an ode to the entire fig tree: the green freshness of the leaves, the milky flavour of the figs, the density of the white wood." --diptyqueparis.com

Small Wonders
"Diptyque" has become shorthand for sophisticated fragrance, and now the house has reimagined five of its best sellers as colorful minis ($65 each), including our pick, Philosykos, a woody fig. At this size they're perfect for tossing in a weekend tote.
