Blue me away

Memo Paris is happy to bring together two artists to unfold even more the imagination of Ocean Leather in an illustrated book:

The author: Jean d’Amérique, born in 1994, is a poet, dramaturge and artistic director of the Transe Poétique festival. He has published Petite fleur du ghetto (Atelier Jeudi Soir, 2015; Maëlstrom, 2019) and Nul chemin dans la peau que saignante étreinte (Cheyne, 2017), for which he received the Prix de la Vocation.

The illustrator: Léa Guerchounow, born in 1997, is a visual artist who lives and works in the Paris region. Through drawing, painting, collage, engraving, sculpture or more broadly installation, she stages a flow of forms, recomposes a world where the real, the imaginary and the virtual find a dialogue.


This book is written in French and English


In the middle of the ocean, feeling an animal’s electric presence. The water comes alive, the air is filled with a unique scent. A jet of water vapor appears, bringing a splash of Mandarin oil, Violet, Basil essence. At first, an apparition. Then, it reveals itself, with its skin colored like Elemi fruits, smooth and shiny, thanks to the millions of water drops. A whale, carrying with him the murmur of depths, the stories shared from boat to boat, with decks smelling like Cedar essence, the strength of sailors, their look, the power of their hands. In its track, the citrus freshness welcomes deeper nuances of Sage absolute, Nutmeg, Vetiver essence. Imposing as an ironclad, its cuirass, its leather skin, protects it. It is its force, its secret. And the Captain knows it.

Mémoire - Ocean Leather


Ode to the natural

A rare freedom

The most beautiful landscapes deserve the most beautiful natural ingredients. This is why Memo fragrances allow themselves to do anything: no limitations in the choice or in the quality of the desired ingredients. The perfumer has a rare freedom to express his creativity, which allows him to create unique compositions with character. Reflecting the destinations that inspire them.

A hint of freshness

With intensity and audacity

With Memo, it pops up through an unexpected facet, a surprising note that will give the perfume a particular dynamic. The Eau de Memo, as the collection Graines vagabondes are emblematic of this willingness to express freshness in a perfume in a new way. With intensity and audacity.

The wake of time

The skin memorizes them

A vintage twist also characterizes Memo fragrances. It is reflected in the Nomadic Leathers collection, born as a subtle nod to the antique leather cases and luggage that recall the art of travel of yesteryear, and that now distinguishes the Memo universe. To give a perfume the strength of a memory, you have to allow it to blossom over time; Memo compositions evolve beautifully on the skin and offer long-lasting hold. The skin memorizes them.
