Affected by Memo Disease
Memo annoys me. I'm willing to spend a lot of money on perfume, but many of us do, but brands like Memo offend me. It's always the same with them, everything starts out enthusiastically and ingeniously, the openings of almost all their fragrances are sensational, very silky, nuanced and almost all of them end up in the sand and this end is coming, pretty soon.

I could also comment on african, irish, french and italian leather but it would be a waste of time because they all suffer from the same disease. Beautiful, seductive beginning and they all find a very meaningless end.

This one was wonderful in the beginning, a nice, silky-cold leather rather reminiscent of very fine suede, soft and elegant and after an hour the whole thing smelled like an 0815 mainstreamer overloaded with warm spices and after 3 to 4 hours the scent was hardly noticeable on my skin.

An inexperienced customer will be dazzled by this half -glorious- hour and may already invest. Almost all memo creations give me the impression that they are all unfinished works

Little Red Riding Hood in the Siberian Forest and the Missing Wolf
"And the moral of history':
Girl, soft from the path not!
Stay alone and do not stop;
Never trust a stranger! Never go to the bitter end Don't give yourself into other people's hands!
Your beauty attracts them,
And a wolf is every man! Remember one thing: At night
Many a wolf has woken up Don't cry a tear for her!br /> Wolves have sharp teeth!"

Well! I bought this perfume blindly, because of the descriptions and because I liked the design of the bottle so much that I thought, because I MUST like the fragrance as well.
Well, in a way he does, too, but while wearing it I always wait for the attack of the wolf that can be seen on the cover, but he seems to sleep all the time.

To put it less abstractly: The fragrance starts off quietly, darkly, green and somewhat leathery. The fragrance has no top note, it starts with its heart note, which is practically also the base note, with the small difference that after about an hour the leather becomes more dominant, while the fougère elements move into the background.
"Background" is generally a word which describes this fragrance as a whole very well. It is a woodsy/leathery background noise. Very linear, very quiet and restrained and without anything unusual.

The fragrance is versatile, fairly easy to wear and can be used at any time of the day or night and in any season.
And yes, it's sombre and yes, it's woodsy, but somehow I keep waiting for a note that will give it something special, some kind of outstandingly unusual component that will give the fragrance character. The attack of the unexpected.
In my opinion, a special fruit, a special spice or an extraordinary flower would have given this perfume that certain something...the attack of the wolf.
So Russian Leather remains an easy to wear, pleasant, but also somewhat boring perfume, which for me comes across as a more refined and delicate version of Drakkar Noir.

Russian wood - walk through the cold pine wood. Fougere vibe, reminds of Penhaligon's Sartorial when dried. Hints of leather way in the back
