The lion's cedar

“No man ever steps in the same river twice But there you go again! in ever-new waters chasing the sunshine, already rereading the surprise of shadows.”

Art and Memo Paris have always had a special bond. The perfume house, which imagines each fragrance as a journey, enjoys the company of artists, authors and illustrators, who let their imaginations wander according to the landscape.

Each perfume has its own dedicated book, to unfold even more its imagination. Iberian Leather was the occasion for Jean Mallard, a young illustrator who graduated from l’Ecole des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, and Emmanuel Dall’Aglio, a French poet, to meet.

Memory

As vast as the peninsula that inspired it, Iberian Leather gives boundless expression to its fullness and power. Continental, integral and proud, from Spain to Portugal, the Iberian soul greets the ocean horizon, that salutary elsewhere. Atlas cedar, sandalwood, moss absolute, balsam fir, agarwood encounter bergamot, coriander, rosemary, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and osmanthus on their journey. Under the protection of a mighty lion that graces its bottle, Iberian Leather stands at the heart of an olfactory kingdom where the leather accord reigns, herald of the Cuirs Nomades collection. Above it hovers the spirit of Córdoba, city of Andalusia renowned for its unique leatherwork. Destined meeting. There, the delicate leather grain plays the part of a canvas. Sculpted in relief, it catches the light, scattering flashes of rose, cinnamon, saffron and vanilla. The leather of Iberian Leather is an accord in its image, resonating in unison, brought to the height of aromatic tension, woody, deep, pulled towards an expressive trail, dense and instinctive.

A rare freedom

The most beautiful landscapes deserve the most beautiful natural ingredients. This is why Memo fragrances allow themselves to do anything: no limitations in the choice or in the quality of the desired ingredients. The perfumer has a rare freedom to express his creativity, which allows him to create unique compositions with character. Reflecting the destinations that inspire them.

With intensity and audacity

With Memo, it pops up through an unexpected facet, a surprising note that will give the perfume a particular dynamic. The Eau de Memo, as the collection Graines vagabondes are emblematic of this willingness to express freshness in a perfume in a new way. With intensity and audacity.

The skin memorizes them

A vintage twist also characterizes Memo fragrances. It is reflected in the Nomadic Leathers collection, born as a subtle nod to the antique leather cases and luggage that recall the art of travel of yesteryear, and that now distinguishes the Memo universe. To give a perfume the strength of a memory, you have to allow it to blossom over time; Memo compositions evolve beautifully on the skin and offer long-lasting hold. The skin memorizes them.
