I have a bottle of the parfum for some years now and tried that again last night and was blown away at how beautiful this combination of rose and heliotrope is. A little sweet due to the heliotrope but tempered by the rose, it has a powdery slightly musky accord and the fragrance just lasts and lasts - brings romance back to life again. Really surprising that this is not the watery-aerienne type of fragrances that one associates with most Japanese creations. Memoire certainly has a very elegant and grand aura about it - simply breathtaking. Has anyone come across Memoire - would love to hear what you think of this.
