A MYSTICAL ROSE
A place of pilgrimage and celebration, located at over 2,500 meters in altitude, the Christian city of Lalibela in Ethiopia is shrouded in mystery. Legend has it that angels came down from heaven to build its twelve churches, hewn from the rock, in a single night, in the 12th century. Lalibela is the scent of joyous fervor.
Lalibela is above all a work of refinement. The carved pink volcanic rock brings sumptuous volumes to life with fascinating details. Each place of worship, sculpted and majestic, emerges from the rock itself, inaugural mineral matter, a pristine block.
The fragrance follows the same path: from raw materials, from their chiseled alliance, and through the skill of the expert perfumer, a unique creation springs forth.
These symbolic and protected havens are still inhabited by the odors of frankincense that are part of the liturgical ritual and the earthy scents tied to this natural environment.
The fragrance included frankincense and patchouli among its ingredients, its own way of prolonging the mystical moment. A new ritual, a joyous fervor, a foraging spirit and the breath of angels: that is Lalibela

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.
