Lentisque by Phaedon is the green, resinous and woody scent of the mastic tree, a tree that grows in the Mediterranean.
This green perfume immediately conjures the Spanish or Corsican maquis, capturing the aromas of branches, rocky paths and of the scorching Mediterranean sun.
Here, mastic is used in two ways: the powerful green essential oil enhanced by galbanum in the top notes, and the absolute, blended with cistus labdanum and dry wood in the heart. The resinous facets in the “drydown” of these two natural allies, vetiver and cedarwood, are enhanced by a cocktail of musk and amber.

The house of Phaedon was founded by two aesthetes from Paris with a passion for travel and the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean. This is reflected in the name and logo: the emblem with the two Assyrian griffins. Phaedon's fragrances are often created by the talented perfumer Pierre Guillaume and a small number of guest perfumers. They are available in eau de toilette or very highly concentrated (30%) eau de parfum. In addition, the brand has high-quality reed diffusers and room sprays.
Thanks to their natural and vegetal components, green fragrances are like a walk in the forest. Smell the grass, plants, leaves, twigs and moss. Always intriguing, always lively and full of character. Green, greener, greenest!
When he was just 25 years old, Pierre Guillaume launched his first perfume called Cozé. Chandler Burr, renowned and respected perfume critic, described this fragrance as 'the coolest of new European fragrances from a young French chemist'. That was the beginning of his career and his own perfume house: Parfumerie Générale, which is now called Pierre Guillaume. Pierre Guillaume uses innovative processes to create fragrances. You can recognize his personal style in his perfumes, with high-quality scents that remain perceptible on the skin for a long time without overpowering.
