Very Complex Fragrance, on the heavy side with a strong pepper and tuberose note. There is a sugar sweet, candied fruit note but this could very well be the tuberose. Very heady, strong & feminine, yet verging on the masculine side as you smell notes as leather and incense. The pepper and tuberose note (reminds me of the old Versace Blonde) are disturbing my nose, so does the incense, it's like holy and profane together and they do not quite match - at least in this composition. Memoir is said to be a "leather animalic chypre”, but to me it is little animalic (oh well, tuberose is often mistaken with raw animalistic sex... :o) and little chypre, as it lacks the green, oakmoss iconic part all chypres should have in common. The drydown is more domesticated with some ambery and rose note. Not something you should bathe into nor suitable for offices or small crowded places.
As I said, it is very complex and interesting in its construction but not my cup of tea. A nice to try, but there are some better Amouages around.

Notes: mandarin, cardamom, absinthe, pink pepper, pepper, clove, white flowers, rose, jasmine, wood, frankincense, styrax, oakmoss, castoreum, leather, labdanum, fenugreek and musk.
