The releases from the house of Amouage over the past three years have had a uniting thread: uncomporomised richness and beauty. Their new series Memoir presents a new chapter in this narrative as conceived by Creative Director, Christopher Chong. Turning the industry norm of a dominant woman’s fragrance on its head, Chong instead conceived the two Memoir fragrances from an inherently male point of view. Together, the Memoir fragrances offer a new interpretation of the “space” between man and woman, one that is almost impossible to resist.
Memoir Woman is a scent of shadows. A mystical Chypre that borrows the Absinth top-notes of Memoir Man and unites them with a dance of Pink Pepper and Cardamom. Dark Woods, Frankincense with White Blossoms, shimmering Jasmine and Rose provide the richly-beating heart notes while Labdanum, Leather, Musk and Oakmoss at the base provide a smoky, sultry conclusion to the fragrance. There’s rarely been a new release that makes us swoon; this is one.
