A lake in pink in a salty kingdom
Retba is based, as can be read on the memo website, on an inspiration that associates the deep pink of a lake. The deep pink of a lake...
You have to let it melt in your mouth. What can it be?

Memo names pink tones that spread out as a flowing lake in Retba: pink pepper, raspberry, a rose.
The intensity of the perceived pink, its nuances, radiating a thousand times over, depends on the sunlight.
Like a field, this lake is pink, a fertile field on which the most precious plants can grow like pure gold: Saffron. Ginger.
This lake is a salty kingdom, says Memo, a white fire glows in it. The white fire can be soothed by wonderfully soft treasures that wait on its shores: oud. Amber. Myrrh. Vanilla. Cinnamon and cardamom. Nutmeg and guaiac wood Like a precious balm this lake is in pink.

There is little to add to this poetic statement of Memo. But I can describe how the impression of the fragrance is represented by my specimen:
A light, shimmering ray of sweetness unfolds on my skin in a heavy, oily consistency. A light, slightly peppery, slightly fruity sweetness, undoubtedly oriental, not a gourmandise, more a spice sweetness, with the most delicate cinnamon and nutmeg tips, light and clear, through which a clear oud tone shimmers golden, fills the room for minutes.
Then a mild, velvety amber note is added, steaming the oriental sweetness and giving the oud a resinous, velvety soft carpet. So the fragrance lingers for hours in creamy sweetness and velvety amber on my skin. Minimally salty inclusions, hardly noticeable, balance this sweetness and the velvet in a harmonious equilibrium in which no tone dominates the other.
Retba is an extraordinarily gentle, gentle scent, absolutely unisex, slightly oriental, and bell-like in its effect, not heavy, not pompous.
Is it a lake in pink in a salty kingdom? I would say: it is a fragrance where the imagination opens wide for an infinitely bright, colourful space where the sun shines

Some relations to LV Contre Moi and more vaguely to Nishane Ani too. Very nice surprise from Memo. Needs further testing :-).
