Finest Thing: baklava soaked in amber honey, helichrysum, wild rosemary, sun-warmed skin

from 8.50

Fragment 16

Some say an army of horsemen, others

Say foot soldiers, still others say a fleet

Is the finest thing on the dark earth.

I say it is whatever one loves.


Few fragments and only one full poem survive from the works of 7th century Greek poet Sappho, although in antiquity she was known as a great poet. Her likeness can be found on ancient coins and statues, and Plato called her “the tenth Muse”. Much of her work was dedicated to Eros and Aphrodite, and today she is perhaps best known as the most famous Lesbian (a word that originated with her). But even centuries later, her lyrical verses speak to the bittersweet complexities of the heart in a way that retains its sense of urgency and strikes a chord of truth.

This scent appeals to another one of the most universal loves — that of a good pastry. Rich, nutty baklava shot through with warm spices and soaked in sensuous amber honey. The drydown reveals an irresistible accord of sweet helichrysum flower, wild rosemary, and warm skin touched with honey.

Notes: baklava soaked in amber honey, helichrysum, wild rosemary, sun-warmed skin
