Memo Paris has just announced their latest endeavors to further extend their Fleurs Bohèmes collection to cater for their many diverse fans. At long last, perfume lovers should expect a vibrant new addition called Madurai, or as best described in their marketing, the Mad Jasmine.
Madurai was created with a specific setting in mind, India. This fragrance harkens back to a trip to South India which the perfumer has been on a few years ago. It is highly reminiscent of the Indian marketplace with all the vibrant colors of fabrics, spices and jewelry. The perfumer recalls the different smells he experienced back then, from all the fruit stalls and the herb vendors.
The bottle design has a cultural aspect to it as well. The plate of Madurai is inspired by the hypnotic motifs that can be found on the ceiling of the temples in India, truly a marvelous gem to behold. As it stands, Madurai will speak to all your senses thanks not only to its artistic design. but also to its fresh and exciting blend of notes.

“Legend has it that Madurai, a sacred city in southern India, derived its name from the drops of divine nectar that fell from Lord Shiva’s hair. A spectacular world created from a drop of perfume?! Pure olfactory genius. Absolute of Indian jasmine sambac, oil of fresh Indian turmeric, here lies the Hindu temple of Meenakshi.
Absolute of jasmine from Upper Egypt, its pyramidal towers are home to all spirits. Australian sandalwood, the statues begin to dance and sway as the wind sings its song. Oil of marigold from the Indian Ocean, mythological creatures in fits of laughter. Clary sage from France, the colours speak a close language. Spirit of peach, bewitching Madurai erupts in thunderous applause for the beauty of jasmine. Eyes wide open, breathe in this floral and fruity whirlwind that exudes incredible charm.” Memo Paris
