Product Description:

Cardamom recalls the hot, dry dust that settles on the long necks of giraffes. Bergamot is the tangy, fragrant markings of wild cats, their spots and stripes barely visible as they crouch in hot sand and dry grass; saffron communicates this electric energy of the hunt, the feline power pulsing like bolts of lightning on the horizon. Cumin stands in for rhinoceroses, their thick hides holding layers of scent in each weathered fold of skin, while their sharp, thick horns gleam in the sun.

Lion manes meet gazelle hooves as mouth closes over ankle and capture occurs; patchouli, its bittersweet, smoky green evokes this moment of the kill, when beasts battle and the plains seem to burn as a life is quickly, expertly snuffed out. Geranium is the bright, surprising glint of the moon-bright eyes of nocturnal bushbabies. In the night time, bat-eared foxes forage for scraps or smaller beasts, but encounter only the eery, oddly tart moltings of a snake. Oud inspires a sense of the omnipotent, overseeing eagle, but it’s funky flavor introduces us to beasts of richer, more earthern fragrance. Vetiver is the spicy, nigh grass through which buffalo wade to drink.

Green monitor lizards trawl through moss to keep watch from high branches, while blue wildebeest bask under the winter sun, their natural scent subdued by cooler climes. Leather recalls the unexpected cool (and heat) of a friendly elephant trunk. In African Leather, musk is a general constant of many shades and colors, that’s neither overpoweringly animalic nor sanitized. Explore the animal kingdom in African Leather, lush, luminous and verdant.

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.
