Russian Leather by Memo Perfume. Introduced in 2016, Russian Leather is a unique fragrance for men and women. This linear scent features green aromatics throughout. Basil’s fresh facets mesh with the camphoraceous minty notes of rosemary and the bracing notes of Clary sage for an accord that is aromatic without overpowering. Pine tree and cedar needles lend their sharp, resinous aroma while fern offers its shadowy green softness. Patchouli, tonka bean and Russian leather are the enduring base notes that cling to the skin, delivering pungent, earthy darkness to the otherwise green fragrance.
Memo was created in 2007. Founders Clara and Joh Molloy’s collection of fragrances are inspired by their love of travel. Influenced by mementos kept from their trips, from metro ticks to travel diaries, their perfumes are all about adventure. Working in collaboration with Alienor Massenet, their collection includes scents for the home, bath products and body fragrances. There are 33 perfumes in their collection released between 2007 and 2018.
