Wind of Leather.
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.
Ireland, a country with rolling hills, is like an open book that makes you want to deeply breathe in the fresh air, filling your lungs and inhaling the authentic fragrance of the rural countryside.
Memo is sensitive to this scenery's identity and dynamic energy. With deliberate, creative and personal affinity, John Molloy, the brand's Irish co-founder, has conveyed the spirit of his native land.

About Memo 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.
