    Default Thoughts on Memo Ilha do Mel

    It is classified as unisex, but has many floral notes (I want/need a masculine fragrance containing jasmine!). I was wondering who has experience with this fragrance? Does it come off very feminine? There is limited information on here and fragrantica.

    I own this and works just fine for a guy. Smells very nice too.

    Like a substitute or same "feel" ?
    Do you prefer AUF over Ilha do Mel? I did not care for AU too much and traded it away.

    Sorry -- haven't tried the Memo one. I do feel that their range in general is rather undercooked though (and overpriced)

    AUF is much better than AU and has a nice long lasting jasmine/rose accord.

    FWIW, I just tried this for the first time today. And it’s pretty nice, but Kaern is spot on (as usual)—Memo’s stuff is mostly waaaay overpriced for what it is.

    Also, I smell very little in common between Ilha do Miel and AUF; however, for what it’s worth, Ilha is a dead ringer for another Francis Kurkdjian composition, J de Pozo’s In White. If you like the Memo (and I do; I think it’s a beautiful and very contemporary jasmine/orange blossom that doesn’t smell stereotypically girly per se), you should try In White, which you can get an FB of for the same price as a sample of the Memo.

    Perceived it, on each testing, as quite appropriate for men or at the very least effortlessly unisex and also quite complex, smooth and altogether enjoyable
