Athens Greece

Greece | One&Only Aesthesis and One&Only Kea Island

July 11, 2023

Today we’re headed to Greece – land of crystalline seas, fabulously fresh food, and the cradle of democracy.

My guests today are Yann Gillet and Jerome Colson, General Managers of the highly anticipated One&Only Aesthesis and One&Only Kea Island. I love this episode because we explore some lesser visited areas of Greece – the glamorous Athenian Riviera set 25 minutes from the city center and the northernmost island of the Cyclades.

Jumping straight into the heart and soul of Greek culture and these authentic destinations, Yann, Jerome and I discuss everything from why every day is a day to celebrate, to the quality of the tomatoes.

The Montroi Perfum for One&Only Kea Island

MELTEMI is a crisp, woody fragrance that captures the spirit of One&Only Kea Island, inspired by ancient Greece. The earthy fragrance is fused with notes of rosewood, nutmeg, cedarwood, clary sage, patchouli and musk.
A unique scent blending rosewood with nutmeg, sage, cedar and patchouli, Meltemi spirits you to One&Only Kéa Island by the seaside, conjuring up cypress trees under the Cycladic sun.
