Being French is being deceptively casual. Not quite nonchalant. French Leather mimics this laissez faire approach to the razor’s edge. Leather rises beneath rose, a sparkle of success in its eye. Pink pepper is synonymous with an offhand style, a subtle sizzle. Juniper recalls the bittersweet aperitif, enjoyed at your choice table in a favorite cafe. The smell of the suede interior of a handbag, holding olfactive memories of a favorite, rosey scent.
Certain, self-assured style is a talent and a practice. Less is more; just one cigarette, whose fumes unfurl along surprisingly herbal and richly woody lines (burnt sage and the dry smoke of cedar). Lime is a refreshing twist in a glass bottle of Coca Cola. Having faith in one's destiny and taking trivial things seriously comes from knowing how to combine opposites; the brilliant, spicy intensity of styrax and vetiver comingling with the dense, soft contours of musk and suede.
The charm of a momentary glimpse of shoulder. Well-placed beauty spots, perfectly improvised. French Leather is as clearly sensual as choosing the right moment for a kiss; to undress. A remarkably confident, yet delectably playful scent, French Leather is a perfect embellishment, night or day. Bottled je ne sais quois.

Reviews From SmallFlower Customers:
Clara and John Molloy, the founders of Memo Paris, met on a chair lift, between sky and earth, between two worlds, in that weightless space that brings out one’s daring side and broadens horizons. It wasn’t long before they decided to set off together on a long-distance journey. Memo, which they launched in 2007, was part of the adventure: a collection of scents from afar that take a destination and make it the point of departure for a sense-awakening epic. Each captivating fragrance serves as a threshold between the known and the unknown, an exciting invitation to openness and discovery that will surely take you on your own aromatic odyssey.
