  1. NEW: Memo - Eau De Memo!

    Eau de Memo: A scent in a sublime ivory hued bottle, it is the work of a sorceress and a perfume of palimpsests the layers take hours to resonate ; not until I go to bed can I just winkle out the jasmine its so elusive. memo says its oriental ; fougere to me, damp foliage, brittle, cold moss, especially the bitter green tea element , bergamot breezes in, later zephers of lemon zest float by, leather notes linger then vanish, hours pass and the buttery iris appears with saffron.
