Vanilla revealed by a cereal.
The sweetness of love, under the burning sun of the world's largest sand desert, a touch of vanilla slips into the comforting embrace of a cereal. In the distant oasis of Siwa, anyone can consult the oracles, just as Alexander the Great and Cleopatra once did, to discover what their destiny holds and make it come true. Cries rise up to the heavens like incantations and Siwa attracts the night.
The fragrance can also be approached in a succession of revelations: an initial olfactory stirring with delicate, elegant vanilla, liberated from its sugary facet, followed by the blossoming of an astonishing roasted grain note and an aroma of whiskey. A head-turning accord of leather-grains-alcohol. Vertigo in the all-powerful sun that increases the scents, and the mirage is not far off.
This round of notes is in the image of the Siwa oasis: a bewitching circularity, successive enclosures, so soft and enveloping once the shadow comes to provide a little freshness. Siwa is like a well-kept secret, and the first sign of turmoil is followed by the comfort of a cocoon.

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.
