Memoires De Mustique description
Memoires de Mustique is a scented fantasy whose inspiration is the small, exclusive island of Mustique in the Caribbean, about a hundred miles west of Barbados. The notes are all ocean breezy, light, and vivid with powdery orange facets all through the top and heart phases.
Memoires de Mustique leaps out like sudden morning sun with its instantly energizing trio of bergamot, petitgrain, and neroli – three of the brightest, zestiest notes in perfumery. The vitamin-C infused top notes gleam with energy and purpose, meant to get you up and about as quickly as possible.
After the cheery dazzle of the petitgrain and neroli simmers down, a soft undertow of orange blossom, osmanthus, and jasmine sambac begins to tug at the senses. These combined heart notes are as rich, plush, and satiny-smooth as the top notes were gregarious and inviting. If the opening of Memoires was a ray of sudden sunlight, the heart expands into the late morning, with all the languorous warmth of napping in a wide hammock included. There is a captivating lushness waiting in the middle of this fragrance, that is wonderfully set up by the zingy, ultra-fresh beginning. Your senses will lean and stretch into this release once its voluminous florals fully bloom. The Vitamin C urgency from the top notes dissipates into a warm, tropical peach haze that floats slowly down into the base.
The dry down of Memoires de Mustique is the island sun setting low over the horizon. A tart white musk note gradually takes over the orange-hued expanse, and tightens the fragrance up like a quick temperature drop on the skin as the sun dips below the sea. Woody accents frame a laid-back amber ribbon coursing through the base beneath the musk as well. The dry down is just the denouement here – the warmth of the island sun beaming down on bare skin, with tropical fruit and flowers fragrancing the air around you is the real draw. Memoires de Mustique’s virtual, and welcoming Perfect Day on the Beach is a must for the next rainy day to come your way.
