Clara and John Molloy, the founders of French Maison Memo, 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 creative journey. Memo, which they launched in 2007, was part of the adventure: a collection of scents from afar, it takes a destination and makes it the point of departure for a sense-awakening epic.
Fragrance kindles an excitement similar to that of a journey, and for the Molloys, and for Memo, the journey is the destination.
The name of the French Maison, Memo, comes from Memory. Olfaction is our most archaic sense. One of the first we explore as human beings. It’s link to our sensations of space and time, it is something that has not been totally discovered by scientists. Perfumes have a strong connection to your soul, to your inner self… A fragrance can reveal you, transform you, it is far more powerful than people usually think. With Alienor Massenet, nose of the Maison, they see fragrance as a means of taking a magical journey, extended beyond its end and constantly re-traveled.
The charm and chic of France are reflected in the new edition of the Memo Paris collection, the key notes of which emphasize playfulness, nonchalance, and sensuality. The most prominent notes of the composition contribute to harmonious balance of sparkling and fresh chords of lime, rose water essence, and soft and cozy suede.
The new unisex fragrance French Leather belongs to Memo’s Cuir Nomades collection, which was launched in 2013, and which comprises Irisch Leather and Italian Leather fragrances, which were introduced last year. Memo French Leather celebrates the note of leather over again, but this time in a subtle, soft and fresh way. In addition to lime, rose water essence and suede, the composition blends pink pepper, juniper, clary sage, cedar, resin, vetiver, and white musk.
Memo French Leather comes in a dark, elegant flacon embellished with gold-colored details. The flacon of recognizable shape is made of dark glass, and it has a gold-colored plate on the front, decorated with a stylized rose illustration.
Memo French leather is available as 75ml at Memo boutique, Paris and selected stores. Come into the beautiful world of Memo Paris.
