Is it possible to travel the world with the spray of a fragrance? Enter Memo Paris on elegant Rue Cambon in the 1st Arrondissement, and you can do exactly that. This upscale boutique whose perfume label was created by Paris-born Clara Molloy and her husband John, takes its roots from the many journeys this couple shared through their passion for travel.

Les Echappées, meaning ‘the escapes’ is a collection of fragrances, each symbolising one of these journeys. From Lalibela, Ethiopia to Granada, Spain to Inlé Lake, Burma, every unique scent transports you to a distant land. There’s even a perfume inspired by Marfa, Texas.

For their 10-year anniversary, a scent evoking Paris was created. Eau de Memo contains notes of Jasmine absolute, Green tea accord and Leather accord, the latter a signature note often found in Memo fragrances. The latest perfume to join this fragrant family is Oriental Leather, combining Geranium leaf, Patchouli oil and Leather Accord.

In addition to a line of bespoke candles outfitted in delicate porcelain and alcohol-free hair perfume, Memo Paris has recently created The Flying Collection, four luxurious fragrances exclusively available at their Paris boutique and at London’s Harvey Nichols. Stop by to discover this fragrance collection inspired by faraway lands and you’ll understand why Clara and John’s motto is “the journey is the destination.”
