Time stands still at the gateway of Luxor, Humanity's oldest prayer site. On the banks of the Nile, the stifling heat makes me feel indolent. Crocodiles slide silently over the sand under the penetrating gaze of the Sphinx. I walk towards the age-old shade of the Colossus Ramesses II. The temple stones seem to vibrate in splendor and the roses sigh in the torpor. Luxor Oud: an oasis of roses and fruit overflowing with freshness and sensuality in the country of greatness and majesty. The marriage of wood and rose under Pharaoh's whip and scepter.
Oud wood slips into the fragrance like a welcome reminiscence. In more than one way; while it recalls the scents that carried prayers up to the gods, oud also refers to a pear-shaped musical instrument with entrancing accords, similar to a lute, which was popular with the pharaohs and is depicted in painted scenes. This wood also lent its name and character to an enveloping, enticing note. In Luxor Oud, it is paired with rose, the queen of flowers, which affirms its inimitable elegance with gentle strength like the Sphinx connecting the temples of Amun and Karnak. The fragrance is characterized by a lofty allure.

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.
