Memo Paris Marfa Eau De Parfum
The perfect fragrance for your friend who has a gypsy heart — or a case of wanderlust. This fragrance is a musky take on tuberose (with subtle citrus notes too), so it’s spicy, but still floral — in a really sophisticated way.

Ex Nihilo French Affair Eau de Parfum
Look, not everyone has a French lover at their beck and call. Consider this fragrance the next best thing. Notes of fresh bergamot are blended with a subtle bite of chili pepper, oakmoss, patchouli and vetiver. It’s avant-garde, but oh-so sexy.

Jo Loves Pomelo
Not your typical fragrance for Valentine’s Day, but this citrus-y fragrance also has notes of rose and vetiver. A couple of spritzes and the wearer is whisked away to a warm beach, which is great if you don’t have any trips planned.
