Yves Coueslant, a diptyque founder, recalls that to get to the sea in the heat of a Greek summer, you had to walk through a natural orchard of wild fig trees. Returning from Paris, co-founder Desmond Knox-Leet brought back a few leaves of fig trees in a little box only to discover that years later that the leaves had lost none of their fragrance.
Philosykos, which in Greek means ‘friend of the fig tree,’ is an ode to the entire fig tree: the green, pungent freshness of the leaves, the wood warmed in the sun and the milky flavor of the fruit.
