“It's one of those icy, biting mornings. The sun scarcely manages to break through the heavy grey clouds. The air is crisp and dry, and the wind slips beneath my clothes. The North wind whips the grass that sticks to my boots. I walk into the stable and swing open the wooden tack room doors, freeing the burning scent of leather, wood, amber and honey. Its age-old odor stands out sharply in the frozen morning air. My horse whinnies softly. It's the smell of her freedom. The leather gathers in the wind, the grass warms with the wood. Irish Leather gallops off into the horizon.”
MEMO co-founder John Molloy is understandably proud of his rural Irish upbringing, and Irish Leather, the first of MEMO's Cuirs Nomades series, positively sings of Ireland's rustic beauty. Opening notes of juniper, pink pepper and clary sage whisk us away to the wild countryside, while the leather- sharp, well-worn and deeply animalic- gives us the barn, the saddle and the horse all at once. Comforting yet forlorn, stark yet vibrantly beautiful, Irish Leather is among the most wonderfully wearable leathers we've ever experienced.
Because there are so many fragrances and so little time! We sell samples which are a wonderful way to try many fragrances before deciding on the full bottle you know you will love. Samples offer the ability to wear perfume for a week or more and decide if that fragrance is right for you. Once you sample fragrances and find ones that you love, you can buy a full bottle from another E-tailer, department store or perfume boutique.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE: You pick the scent and the size, then we decant from the original bottle or vessel into a brand new sterile glass spray (please note 1ml samples are not sprays). We label each decant and carefully package to prevent leakage. To assure you that you get the exact amount listed for each decant bottle, we use medical measuring devices so that each bottle is filled the exact amount. Please note, there is air space left at the top of the bottles which is important for pressurization in atomizers. Air space does not mean you received less than the amount listed. Please understand before purchasing, you will NOT receive an original bottle of perfume from the manufacturer. However, you WILL receive a re-packaged, unaltered, freshly and expertly hand-decanted scent.
DECANTING PROCESS: Each vessel is hand decanted after payment and moments before shipping from our bottles of authentic fragrances. We use sterile medical pipettes designated for each fragrance, or the perfume is sprayed or poured directly from the original bottle.
