Amouage Memoir Man
Memoir Man is an EDP, and doesn't scream out for attention. Top notes are Wormwood, Mint and Basil; middle notes are Incense, Lavender and Rose; base notes are Tobacco, Leather, Sandalwood, Guaiac Wood, Vetiver, oak moss, Amber, Vanille and Musk. Pronunciation Amouage creative director Christopher Chong aimed for something truly great with his two latest fragrances — Memoir Man and Memoir Woman: "to unlock the unfathomable mysteries that reside within human nature."Well! Both alluring and philosophical, this fragrance defies conventions and moves beyond sense and reason. It is being marketed by Sabco Group / Oman Perfumery. Heart Notes: Rose, Frankincense, Lavender Absolute. The nose behind this fragrance is Karine Vinchon Spehner. I love the basil and mint in Memoir Man, instantly reminding me of fresh cut grass. Like a tray of unset gems the topnotes sparkle on the skin, leading into heart notes of Woods and a rich, smooth base of Vanilla, Amber and the traditional Oakmoss. Memoir Man is a Fougère, one that fractures the standard mix of Lavender and Oakmoss into bright shards by the addition of Basil and Mint and the further aspect of Absinth.
