Paris is a fete and artists are its stars. They meet in the Quartier Latin, home to Bohemian dreams of creation and romance. Stone, slate and zinc form a mosaic, jigsaw walls beneath Paris rooftops. The smell of old paper (open books and rolling papers) floats in the jazz-filled air. Behind each half-open door, a hidden promise.
Clove is a rich, tawny camphoric haze that drapes the quartier like a fine mist. Cedar, a glittering smoke and sweetness, beckons like the seductive curl off the hot tip of a cigarette. Sandalwood is simultaneously a brilliant satin texture while it maintains a soft, fine powder. This infusion of green, woody light illuminates with giddy fervor tonka bean, making this gourmand, dualistic note positively radiant.
Quartier Latin is rooted by a rich, savory amber that emanates a warming, golden heat like a hot coal. The heart of Paris flutters and spits amidst these dark, rich notes. Like a sparkling, comforting fire Quartier Latin both soothes and scintillates, pushing us to pursue our wildest desires. A self-actualizing fragrant force, Quartier Latin is inspired and indulgent.

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.
