From Diptyque, the 34 Bazar Candle: "The Elide is the evocation of the epic Fauna, an ancient figure that fascinated Desmond Knox-Leet, in this region of Greece where bitter orange peel essences, aromatic plants and wild lavender meet. His blackmat biscuit pot is adorned with a representation of Fauna." $85 for 220g at Neiman Marcus.
The Diptyque founders all sound like such interesting characters. The back story starts about half way through this obit.
Late reply, but thank you — knew some of that but not all of it, and love that he lived above the shop!
This one must smell like their Eau d´Elide which is my favourite Diptyque.
Sounds like it.
