It’s one of those icy, biting mornings. The sun scarcely manages to break through the heavy grey clouds. The air is crisp and dry, and the wind slips beneath my clothes. The North wind whips the grass that sticks to my boots. I walk into the stable and swing open the wooden tack room doors, freeing the burning scent of leather, wood, amber and honey. Its age-old odor stands out sharply in the frozen morning air. My horse whinnies softly. It’s the smell of her freedom. The leather gathers in the wind, the grass warms with the wood. Irish Leather gallops off into the horizon.

Memo Paris was founded in 2007 by Clara Molloy and her husband John. They see fragrance as a journey, forging its identity around magical destinations and potent raw materials. This desire for travels to far-off places and encounters is the very reflection of the founding couples: she the Parisian-Catalan poet, he the sporty Irish globetrotter.
Through four collections, Memo recharts the map of a sensory world steeped in emotion, revisited with fragrances, ingredients and sensations. The motto: ‘The journey is the destination’
“Les Échappées” - a collection of six mooring points leading from chic and Bohemian Paris to the heart of Burma.
"Cuirs Nomades" explores the leather note through six emblematic destinations, from Africa to Italy.
"Graines Vagabondes" sows the scent of natural seeds like sesame, still a rarity in perfumery.
And "Art Land" pays tribute to mysterious territories transformed by the artistic hand of humankind.
