An oud in the house of sun.
Shams means "sun" in Arabic. Legend has it that the Persian god mithras climbed into his gold-covered chariot at dawn and whipped his horses forward to pull the sun across the sky until dusk. But at nightfall, on the verge of disappearing from the horizon, the sun was swallowed by a man, only to return to life at dawn... The sun makes our hearts swell in a hand-to-hand combat of pepper, ginger and saffron. It dazzles with a thousand desires and gives us power over the days and hours. Everyone gets lost in its scintillating, unreal brightness. Intoxicated with warmth, it accelerates our stride and consumes us in its passion. The only guide in the house of the sun is the haunting music of Oud, its main chords of Tonka bean, its dreams of wood and its promises of glorious love.
The warm, amber effectin a word, solarreaches its zenith with oud, that powerful wood resin, animal and mysterious, that transports us to the land of Arabian Nights. It has the presence of an incensesome cultures even consider it an aphrodisiac, it is an object of burning desire.

About Memo Paris Fragrances:
Clara and John Molloy, the founders of Memo, met on a chair lift in 2005, between sky and earth, between two worlds, in that weightless space that brings out one's daring side and broadens horizons. It wasn't long before they decided to set off together on a long-distance journey. It would also be a creative journey. Memo, which they launched in 2007, was part of the adventure: a collection of scents from afar that now boasts fifteen fragrances, it takes a destination and makes it the point of departure for a sense-awakening epic.
