Product Description:

A place of pilgrimage and celebration, located at over 2,500 meters in altitude, the Christian city of Lalibela in Ethiopia is shrouded in mystery. Legend has it that angels came down from heaven to build its twelve churches, hewn from the rock, in a single night, in the 12th century. Lalibela is the scent of joyous fervor.

Coconut orchid is a potent, yet ephemeral introductory note, that imbues Lalibela with a gleaming sheen-like texture, throughout. Rose and jasmine are utterly unified herein, rose’s linear, clarifying strength the yin to jasmine’s earthy, sensual yang. Indonesian patchouli is a winding, velveteen repeating pattern of green that punctuates Lalibela from top to bottom. Rockrose absolute is as sweet as it is spicy, a burgundy effect that weaves a romantic narrative into this fabled setting. Vanilla reinforces the sense of mythic love that underlies Lalibela.

Tobacco’s green-brown smoke offers a rich base upon which these honeyed, amorous notes to cling. Frankincense and labdanum issue great billows of smoke through which Lalibela seems to vanish and reemerge, like an impassioned spirit. Perfectly mystifying yet as resolutely physical as the ancient city for which it’s named, Lalibela is an ethereal creation with satisfying (and surprising) heft. A dream that implies a romantic destiny, Lalibela is heavenly comfort.

(coconut orchid, rose, jasmine absolute, oil of Indonesian patchouli, rockrose absolute, vanilla, tobacco absolute, frankincense, labdanum resin)

About Memo:

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.
