[The fragrance oil 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 oil counterpart]. 

Top //    Caramelised sugar, cinnamon dust

Mid //    Nutmeg, clove 

Base //   Vanilla, honey

30ml of pure fragrance oil.  


- 3-4 drops into an electric diffuser 
- 3-4 drops into an oil burner 
- 3-4 drops into your bin liner
- 3-4 drops inside your toilet deodorise the bowl

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.
