French Leather - EdP 2.5oz

$ 250.00

What is being French all about? Being deceptively casual. Not quite nonchalant. Leather that rises up beneath the rose. A sparkle in the eye. Style, even off-hand. Having a table of choice in a favourite café. The smell of suede inside a handbag. A certain idea of style. Talent. Just one cigarette. Lime. Faith in one's destiny.

Taking trivial things seriously. Knowing how to combine opposites. Knowing the name of each bridge in Paris. Cedar. Learning to hide one's thorns. The glimpse of a shoulder. Charm. Never being totally lost. Inventing ancestors. Well-placed beauty spots. Pink pepper. Improvising. Being right. Knowing the right moment to undress. Musk. Kissing.

  • Top Notes: Lime, pink pepper, juniper berry, clary sage
  • Middle Notes: Rose
  • Base Notes: Cedarwood, styrax, vetiver, suede, musk

Granada - EdP 2.5oz

$ 210.00

Midnight in the gardens of the Alhambra, the red castle. The wandering breeze brings to mind love. Under the waving jets of the fountains, as silent as the petrified marble. With my eyes closed, hands stretched out: I sleepwalk in your perfume. Cradle-me, song of jasmine, take me in your arms, my orange blossom.

How dark it is, the wood of your guitars. They weep in the moonlight. How dark their hair is, your gypsies. Their skirts make my heart spin. Granada, I dream of your nights, so warm. In the heart of the romantic Nasrid Palace, atop the invincible Alcabeza citadel, relentlessly, my desire roams. Listen to my voice calling you. Granada, tonight I will be faithful to you. Your sky is above my land, my only light.

Ilha do Mel - EdP 2.5oz

$ 250.00

Ilha do Mel, an island of sugary sweetness with the curvaceous outline of a whale. Just for you and me, honey meets mandarin - and nothing could ever tear us apart. A moon of juniper and vanilla deeply intertwined.

A wave of broom flowers swells, and washes over my pillow. I have the whole wide beach to unravel you. Hidden bliss ; sheltered under the pink and hyacinth arches of the Encantada grottos, we lost all reason in the labyrinth of Camoes. Rays of honey soften the jasmine of my awakening. 

Their sweetness gives me musk fever, the palm fronds sway with your devilish smile. King Vetiver rules, I rush to dip in the swirling waters of joy, hurry, join me in the whirl of gardenia and orange blossom waves. Lonesome without iris, I long for your tropics.

  • Top Notes: Mandarin, juniper, hyacinth

An osmanthus fragrance submerged in a cloud of tea. Time stands still over lake Inlé in Burma. The women take up their silk embroidery and the men their dance above the waters, in boats that resemble palaces.

The fruit and vegetables market is coming to life in the refreshing mist. You can see the first light of day, hear the first sounds of celebration - a farewell to night, or a welcome to the dawn.

Irish Leather - EdP 2.5oz

$ 250.00

It’s one of those icy, biting mornings. The sun scarcely manages to break through the heavy grey clouds. The air is crisp and dry, and the wind slips beneath my clothes. The North wind whips the grass that sticks to my boots.

I walk into the stable and swing open the wooden tack room doors, freeing the burning scent of leather, wood, amber and honey. Its age-old odor stands out sharply in the frozen morning air. My horse whinnies softly. It’s the smell of her freedom. The leather gathers in the wind, the grass warms with the wood. Irish Leather gallops off into the horizon.

  • Top Notes:  Juniper berries, pink pepper, clary sage
  • Middle Notes: Green mate, iris

Italian Leather - EdP 2.5oz

$ 250.00

Italy is the place for stargazers, where you can keep your dreams alive, give them a thousand lives and drench them in joy. Italians are like the French in a good mood. They leave the splendours of Rome behind, one eye on the rear-view mirror of their convertible, a playful smile on their lips, the wind in their hair. The dolce vita often begins with a getaway. The red leather of the steering wheel brings a flush to their cheeks. Beauty stretches out lazily with each passing mile. Man blends seamlessly with the landscape, as the roads hug the sensual shape of the fields and valleys.

It has been said that language diversity stems from the variability of climates. Italian Leather speaks the Italian of Rome, the one drowsily murmured in the seat of a cabriolet during an impromptu lover's siesta. It teams the simplicity of green tomato leaf with the sophisticated beauty of leather, myrrh and vanilla absolute. A lucid dream.

  • Top Notes:  Tomato leaf, clary sage
  • Middle Notes: Galbanaum, rose
  • Base Notes: Tolu, myrrh, opoponax, leather, benzoin, vanilla, musk

Kedu - Eau de Parfum 2.5oz

$ 250.00

Kedu, nicknamed "the garden of Java" in Indonesia, is a plain bordered by a volcano. Its soil, which has been made fertile by the ash, is sacred.

Borobudur arises shrouded in mist, a site of prayer constructed on a magical square. Tradition has it that you can purify your soul by throwing sesame seeds—one seed for each passion—into one of its flaming domes. The burnt sesame aromas rise up to the heavens. The husky accents of the seeds, which are symbols of longevity, set the sparkling freshness of grapefruit alight.

It unfolds on contact with grapefruit, neroli, white musk and moss to form an enchanting spell. Sesame and grapefruit come together and merge like the landscape that inspired them, the high plain of Kedu. Nestled on the island of Java, at the heart of Indonesia, this land is fertile, luxuriant and volcanic in one.

Luxor Oud - EdP 2.5oz

$ 210.00

Time stands still at the gateway of Luxor, Humanity's oldest prayer site. On the banks of the Nile, the stifling heat makes me feel indolent. Crocodiles slide silently over the sand under the penetrating gaze of the Sphinx. I walk towards the age-old shade of the Colossus Ramesses II.

The temple stones seem to vibrate in splendour and the roses sigh in the torpor. Luxor oud: an oasis of roses and fruit overflowing with freshness and sensuality in the country of greatness and majesty. The marriage of wood and rose under Pharaoh's whip and sceptre.

Marfa - EdP 2.5oz

$ 250.00

At the junction of Routes 90 and 67, deep in the Texan ranch land, three hours from the closest airport: Marfa. A destination with a unique destiny, chosen by Memo to inaugurate its Art Land collection.

Its bottle emblazoned with a wide-open eye provides the first clue. Marfa beckons the eye and holds its gaze. Despite the blinding sun and the irritating dust, the oldest inhabitants of this isolated American town lost on a high, arid plateau of the Chihuahuan Desert, the eye won’t waver. For Marfa has a power of attraction like no other, casting its spell on all those who come its way. This too is the property of a fragrance when it creates that magical bond.

The encounter with Memo was thus meant to happen and did so with Tuberose Absolute: a bewitching, lingering, unforgettable flower. From the same family as Agave, which blooms at the heart of the desert and signals its presence in a top note accord, the Marfa fragrance evokes the singular nature of this white-hot land.

  • Top Notes: Mandarin, orange blossom, agave accord
  • Middle Notes: Tuberose, ylang ylang
  • Base Notes: Sandalwood, cedarwoood, vanilla, white musk

Moon Fever - EdP 2.5oz

$ 210.00

The dark side of the moon hides a jungle rustling with animals as free as they are wild. They live with their nose in the wind and their head in the stars, in the lightness and sweet pleasure of weightlessness.

In the heat of the savannah, they welcome lazybones, men in the moon and dream chasers like old friends. A fanfare of roars, sighs, whinnies and cries ring out to greet each new arrival: no one even thinks of sleeping when it’s time to set off on a Moon Fever.

Russian Leather - EdP 2.5oz

How does one envisage «Russian leather»? Let your imagination run free with these majestic beasts. Strike a balance between force and finesse, and you will unleash a leather harmony imbued with a magical aura

Shams Oud - EdP 2.5oz

$ 210.00

Shams means “sun” in Arabic. Legend has it that the persian god mithras climbed into his gold-covered chariot at dawn and whipped his horses forward to pull the sun across the sky until dusk. But at nightfall, on the verge of disappearing from the horizon, the sun was swallowed by a man, only to return to life at dawn…

The sun makes our hearts swell in a hand-to-hand combat of pepper, ginger and saffron. It dazzles with a thousand desires and gives us power over the days and hours. Everyone gets lost in its scintillating, unreal brightness. Intoxicated with warmth, it accelerates our stride and consumes us in its passion. The only guide in the house of the sun is the haunting music of Oud, its main chords of Tonka bean, its dreams of wood and its promises of glorious love.

  • Top Notes: Saffron, ginger, pepper
  • Middle Notes: Vetiver, cypriol
