Drops Of Memory
The memory of intense love. The emotion that this perfume conveys comes from a story that touches the soul personally and leaves the heart vacant, like empty rooms. The fragrance describes the sense of emptiness that losing the partner has left inside the seat in the transition. The "empty rooms" represent the absence, inhabited only by snapshots and memories of the past life together. They are the "drops of memory" that flow like tears and leave an indelible trace behind them. The ineffability or the inability to express what one feels, to measure the feeling, which is in this a feeling full of pain and nostalgia—inestimable, your absence is elusive that it belongs to me.

So what is Mémoire Intense about? It is nothing more than a sweet fragrance with a musky layer under it. A modern chypre, also known as pink chypre, which means citrus, floral, and earthy accords, is featured, with plenty of patchouli replacing the IFRA-prohibited oakmoss. An extreme and flamboyant refined perfume belonging to the floral and clean chypre olfactory family.

The first splash reveals an atmosphere of oriental jasmine and chypre against a background of woody vanilla, possibly from the cashmere molecule. Well, it opens with a burst of sweet, succulent, and pinkish bitter orange. It hooks me from that first breath of beauty. The bitter orange is substantial support, which prevents the scent from becoming too sweet. It is a large, fragrant rose with a realistic orange juice vibe as if the rose petals are floating on fresh orange juice. A perfume beginning that makes itself felt while being quite elegant. The sensation of clean citrus with pink brush strokes.

As it settles throughout the day, you feel the vanilla, musk, and woody base notes become clearer. Modern patchouli becomes quite prominent, giving the fragrance a more earthy feel. The roster features a chypre accord, from which I get notes of something woody, patchouli, cedar shavings, and creamy cashmeran, as well as a generous handful of woody vanilla, spicier than gourmand. I love the dry and persistent cedar and the vanilla woven into the musk at the end of the day.

In conclusion, it is a crowd-pleaser, a fascinating combination of sweet, clean, and fresh chords. A perfect fragrance to wear in hot and cold seasons, from autumn to winter, day or night. I love the grace and elegance of Mémoire Intense highlighted through the chypre structure. It is balanced between the woody base and the floral heart, with such a warm and woody fragrance and a sensual touch. However, the formula is very complex, while the scent is airy and pleasant at the same time. I love the mystery of this essence, which is captured by the notes of patchouli and the floral heart composed of rose and jasmine, which I perceive intensely. In short, to better convey the idea, this fragrance is very close to the genre proposed by Idôle L'Intense, also built around a chypre accord.

I based the review on an 80ml bottle I have owned since September 2021.

It's the more mannish of the Chapter 3 collection, with resinous, camphorous, a bite powdery, with clear mossy and fumy nuances from chypre.
