A smoky, bright and uplifting fragrance.

Steve0580, parfumo.net
2 March 2014
  • Summary: In the opening, the immediate two notes I smell are smoke and incense but it's not so much as church incense as it is a bright incense. The woods in the fragrance are more background players than at the forefront. It also has a note that I'm having a hard time placing and it could very well be the absynth, since that's listed as the central note. Quite honestly, I don't know what absynth smells like on its' own, so it's hard for me to say.

A Multilayered and Compelling Modern Oriental Chypre

Sherapop, parfumo.net
20 September 2013
  • Summary: Amouage MEMOIR WOMAN is a thick and satisfying oriental chypre with a marked smoky leather note which darkens the composition overall while at the same time framing the lighter floral and fruity notes. I do not find the leather very animalic; it almost seems like dark-roasted tobacco, in fact. As the composition develops, the smokiness fades to a light shadow of itself, while the labdanum becomes more prominent.

The Dark Knight

ArkangeL, parfumo.net
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Intriguing, refined, complex, anomalous, unprecedented. Yes, in that order. I have never smelled anything quite as royal and polished as Memoir Man. Never stepping foot in Oman, I'm feeling nostalgic about a place I have yet to see or come close to. The notes all work as a perfect ensemble, one complimenting the other. The finest herbs, flowers, resins and woods create an unstoppable force. Dark, smoky, mysterious, confident and announced.

Promising start, disappointing finish

Epimedes, parfumo.net
3 August 2012
  • Summary: Do you know how a new TV show starts with an exciting pilot episode and then runs out of ideas in one season? That's pretty much how I feel here. Memoir Man opens up as a radiant green scent, moving from a sharp, freshly cut grass introduction to a darker cold green absinthe, and finally to an aromatic herbal blend. It is all very dynamic, with an impressive complexity from the incense and woods peeking through.

Setting the Right Tone

Apicius, parfumo.net
17 February 2012
  • Summary: After so many Parfumo users having pushed this fragrance to no. 1 of the top list, I get curious if there might be something special about it. I admit, Memoir Man is not bad enough for a slating review. A stylish flacon, a mysteriously oriental brand name and twice the price as usual for a decent perfume – and people buy it like mad. Amouage knows the ropes, that is for sure! Memoir Man is a decently made smoky resinous fragrance.

I remember how it feels …

Taurus1967, parfumo.net
5 January 2012
  • Summary: Memoir Man starts with a little scent-firework, that’s anybody wake up and say: here happens something. And what happens has his price. Cause Memoir Man take themselves very patronize and show us a small olfactory world fuel with precious and select ingredients. I didn´t notice the mint, but more of the tarragon, that would be more and more loud. And than come a small surprise. Memoir Man cited in a short time frame the basics of Jil Sanders Feeling Man.

  • Summary: 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...

  • Excerpt: Я заметила, что аромат раскрывается ПОТРЯСАЮЩЕ в теплых условиях. Я начала носить Мемуар в декабре, он и в холода прекрасен, но… Однажды вечером, во время урока танца, когда я была вся разгоряченная, он так заиграл! И появилась та самая терпкая вишня и дымок, и животинка - ну, оооочень чувственно. Второй раз, когда я укрылась очень теплым пуховым одеялом и заснула на часик.

Впервые встречаю аромат с ладаном в пирамидке, такой красоты!

  • Excerpt: Отливантик Amouage Memoir Woman я купила уже довольно давно. После просмотра видеоролика на Ютюбе, про парфюмы. Женщина так интересно рассказывала про свою парфюмерию, и ее вкусы совпадали с моими. С духами Amouage на тот момент я не была знакома. Поэтому заказала, что называется вслепую. Долгое время я к нему только присматривалась, прислушивалась, пыталась понять. Ничего не понимала. То есть любви с первого взгляда не случилось, впрочем, как и ненависти.

Воспоминание, аромат память, аромат поэзия, безумно красив и безумно грустен

Свечка76, irecommend.ru
30 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Мемуар, аромат из разряда событие. Из разряда ароматов способных поразить. Способных затронуть потаенные струны души и вызвать сильнейшие эмоции. Я согласна с теми, кто говорит о  грусти аромата, он правда наполнен некой печалью, но печаль эта светлая и ОСОЗНАЮЩАЯ и СОЗИДАЮЩАЯ какая-то, это не беда, это понимание конечности жизни и песнь «безумцам, осмеливающимся любить, зная что всему этому когда-нибудь придет конец».
