Creative Director Clara Malloy of Memo Paris has enjoyed a prolific and successful relationship with defacto in house perfumer Aliénor Maissenet, (now of Symrise). Memo's leitmotif is sense of place, memories of journeys; in fact the name Memo comes from the word memories. The first Marfa was inspired by Clara Malloy’ of Memo Paris trip to Marfa, Texas, a town in the high desert. Sr. Contributor Sebastian Jara is a big fan, and it changed his mind that tuberose couldn’t be worn easily by men. He reviewed it here.

One of my favorite photos is a PRADA store installation standing like a mirage in the middle of a desolate strip of road just off Highway 90. While I am not sure if the cowboy is just gawking or thinking of buying Prada boots, I think he would smell great wafting Memo Paris Marfa Spices. Tuberose is a big note that had a big moment last year, and even the most macho of men now understand that the flower known as “The Queen of The Night”, is fit for a king as well. With notes of agave and cardamom, the desert beckons.
