The woody, delicately spicy Cendres de Thé (‘ashes of tea’) by Phaedon opens with an accord of smoky notes and cardamom.
In the heart a peppery rose with the floral, woody facets of tea and Ho wood (cinnamonum camphora). The sumptuous base is a blend of cedarwood and musk, supported by myrrh.

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.
Woody fragrances are full of character and indeed very woodsy. They can be warm, soothing and creamy, but also dry and spicy. Key ingredients are cedar wood, patchouli, sandalwood and/or vetiver. Oudh (agarwood), Palo Santo and guaiac wood have also joined the perfumer's palet, just like the fantastic synthetics such as Javanol or Iso-E-Super.
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.
