French niche line Memo has launched Corfu, a new "sunny musk" fragrance in the brand's Graines Vagabondes collection.
A solar perfume, as vibrant as the Greek sky, leaving on the skin a warm trail, like a memory of a dive in the Ionian Sea. A modern chypre overdosed with musk. Opening with a tart rhubarb, fizzy citrus and aromatic basil, the fragrance evolves towards a soft and delicate bouquet, leaving on the skin a sophisticated musk facetted with notes of milky sandalwood, creamy amber and cashmere woods.
The sea has shaped a legend that electrifies the enamored hearts, announcing a smile of bergamot, tangerine, grapefruit, rose oil and patchouli. Whoever swims through this rocky passage made up of golden reliefs like amber, and turquoise water as soft as iris, will know a lasting love. The “Canal d’Amour”, such is its name, patient. He knows that the Greek island has many other secrets to share, woven of jasmine, ambrette seeds, sandalwood, and tonka bean; fruits of so many influences. Here stands the blackcurrant absolute, where raspberry and peach are combined. Beautifully wild, mountainous and wooded landscapes, lead to visions of Italian, French and British architecture, Byzantine churches and Roman remains. The Epochs, cultures, cedar wood, musk and lily-of-the-valley, the languages, traditions, rhubarb and geraniums, can all be found in Corfu. The Island of all encounters.
Additional notes include lemon and clove.
Memo Corfu is available in 75 ml Eau de Parfum.
Well this sounds delightful and I also love The Durrells in Corfu so I may need to try this haha.
I miss that show!
This interests me because of my fondness for Mary Stewart’s This Rough Magic.
