Luxor Oud Memo for women and men Pictures

The collection of Memo Paris will be expanded this autumn with another fragrant journey through Egypt and the fantastic city of Luxor, a town on the River Nile, famous for temples and alleys of sphinxes that have been resisting time for thousands of years. Remains of prayer and memorial temples including the magnificent Karnak are a symbol of a powerful civilization that left its mark and to this day causes our admiration.

The new fragrance LUXOR OUD celebrates the strength and power of the ancient, indicating that the heat of the desert surrounding Luxor offers a picturesque view of the heat and harshness of the climate. Sunny notes provided by tangerine give light to robust patchouli accords. Rose flower in the center of the composition is sweetened with fruit zest and heated with labdanum absolute united with warm oud wood aromas. Perfumer of the new edition is Alienor Massenet. Luxor Oud was launched in 2012.

(time stands still at the gateway of luxor humanity's oldest prayer site.on the banks of the Nile,the stifling heat makes me feel indolent.crocodiles slide silently over the sand under the penetrating gaze of the sphinx.i walk towards the age-old shade of "the giaant ramesses2nd". the temple stones seem to vibrate in splendor and the roses sigh in the torpor/heat.Luxor OUD:an oasis of roses and fruit overflowing with freshness and sensuality in the country of greatness and majesty.the marriage of wood and rose under Pharaoh's whip and sceptre...)..the above paragraph was written on the perfume description by memeo...
luxour oud is a tame oud rose accord..its balsamic resinous fruty with hints of clean lighter patchouli and styrax with top notes of mandarin orange and heart notes of rose absolute and desert rose and and styrax resin with oil of cypriol heart...the entire composition sings with majesty with opulancy and dignity..
when you first apply it you are transported to a faraway 1001 nights scene..to a temples sand and setting blazing sun filled with mysterious resins..its not so heavy not so strong not so overwhelming all the notes are blended together in a manner that makes them hide each other hold each other give way to one another in discrete ways in subtle ways in harmonious ways..in sensual ways not so repulsive or on your face types of oud its not even frank oud its an oud accord for i believe that pharos didnt use oud they were more in to the ambers reins and jasmines so the oud here plays a faint role just to acinuate the reins and the rose..that s if you want to conotate the name of luxor oud to it which comes from north the continent of Africa Egypt in particular..honestly i don't see the resemblance only if its to be found in the perfumers heart or olfactory memory or some emotional connotation..
luxor oud reminds me of hard core oriental oud rose connotations that are smelled in the Arabian peninsula in ceremonies of happiness and prayer it reminds me of juliet has a gun the golden one and thierry mugler vouluptous and estee lauder mystique woods and clinique beyound rose and even aramis calligraphy the golden black one the first one that came out befor the rose and safron versions if you mix the 3 you will get luxor oud
the perfume is a warm deep floriental oudy resniousy patchouli balsamic mellow soft sensuale almost sweet very beautiful soothing almost incensy almost translucent not as velvety deep as the other ones mentioned yet memerising and very bright and clean in its own way..a true orientalist dream with a twist of modernity..a sophisticated more linear approach to the opulancy and heaviness of oud rose accords its almost translucent,more like the byredo immortal oud
what can i say i do like the memeo line they make some heart throbbing perfumes that literally transport you to different parts of the world with emotions and dreams and hidden stories and myth and magic..
the last paragraph is also by memo
"les Echappees" is a collection of fragrances for men and women ,forming a map of the world that both delights and stirs the imagination. each fragrance is like a treasure hunt-an olfactory trail that leads to a modern world of perfumery,using the rarest essences.the memo fragrances share three values:the talent for partying,which gives them spontaneous cheerfulness,an undeniable thirst for travelling,which is a sing of interior adventure,and an ability for dreaming,like an extension of childhood.

What a remarkably beautiful rose ! For an oriental scent LO is rather quiet. This great concoction includes a smokey aroma which accompanies the rose and the oud (I do not care if it is the "real" stuff or synthetically made) remains very much in the background. No medicinical start, no terpentine, no cow dung whatsoever. There is a juicy mandarine/tangerine playing back and forth but only medium sweet. The same fruity note that greatly annoyed me in Emir (paired with sickly sweet sugar) is very balanced here. Nothing is too much, nothing is out of the frame given for a round composition, no off notes.
This is probably the most beautiful fruity floral perfume I have come across in a long time. I am usually into very heavy and heady scents, choking and cloying, narcotic and obnoxious :-) This one is so different but still an oriental. Do not forget the hint of smoke floating through the roses and the fruits. Delicious !
I am going to get myself a full bottle today, luckily I know a store that sells Memo.
As this brand was totally new to me so far I must say : big surprise (in a really good way) and a recommendable perfume for oud starters not willing to jump into icecold water.
