[The diffuser with a cult following]

The prequel to and partner in crime of PAPPOU'S GARDEN.

A syrup-soaked concoction of honey, spices, nuts and of course, crisp filo pastry - almost as warm as a hug from Yiayia herself.

The deep [both figuratively and literally] accord is a dedication to Grandmother's alike and a warm nod to generational philoxenia.

Equal parts sweet and spicy which of course, sits in stark contrast to her green and earthy spouse [and diffuser counterpart]. 

Top //    Caramelised sugar, cinnamon dust

Mid //    Nutmeg, clove 

Base //   Vanilla, honey

200ml of fragrant diffuser oil.  Includes 10 dacron fibre reeds to enhance scent throw.



I had been to Greece before [you know, the trip everybody does in their early 20s- island hopping and drinking to the point of dreading the next day's ferry] but I never fully experienced Greece for what it was until 2018. 

A mechanical fault meant my ferry made an unexpected stop on the island of Tinos for a night - a quaint Cycladic Island known for its churches. 

I sat at this small Kafenio [café] near the port to Facetime back home and complain about my unexpected [and unwanted] lay over.  As I finished complaining, I looked up to see the Kafenio's Yiayia walk straight towards me.  She looked me dead in the eyes and said - "I should be offended that you sit our family's shop and complain but instead, I will change your mind about our island".   

Yiayia [who insisted I call her that by the way - Yiayia], brought plates and plates of food and we shared stories.   The best dish was the one at the end - her Baklava.   Equal parts spicy and sweet - a bit like her really. 

Tinos and Yiayia taught me 'Philoxenia' - a sort of sacred bond between a host and guest.  Something there is no direct English translation for that would serve as a fair equivalent.  

I now try to be a little more like Yiayia.


- Open glass bottle and place all the reeds in the bottle such that the bottom of the reeds sit in the fragrance oil - the more reeds, the more scent throw;
- Place the diffuser on one of our TILES or MARBLE PIECES to protect your surfaces in case of spillage;
- Due to the quality of our fragrance blend and reeds, you do not need to turn the reeds over to ensure a consistent flow of scent;
- Up to 3 months scent throw;
- Air conditioning, heating, humidity and draughts can of course impact the longevity of your fragrance oil;
- The fragrance blend will oxidise after the bottle has been opened; and
- The solution interacts with oxygen which can affect colour, but not the quality of the fragrance or longevity of fragrance.
