African Magic Inspired By Memo Paris's African Leather




The sun sets on the Serengeti, and the animal kingdom begins to settle in for the night. The calming warmth of the earth radiates towards the sky, and the ambiance crackles with latent majesty and power, resting but ready to erupt, simmering beneath the surface. African Magic caresses your senses with this same subdued raw energy, a tapestry of rich leather aromas expertly woven together with sweet cardamom and an earthy saffron-and-vetiver blend, spiced with cumin and patchouli. It is the smell of opulence, mouth-watering and sensuous, dark and yet somehow gentle. It is the scent of self-possession and assurance. Inspired by Memo Paris's African Leather!

Time of day: Afternoon/Evening

Weather: Any

Notes: Cardamom, Leather, Saffron, Vetiver, Cumin, Geranium, Patchouli, Oud, Bergamot, Musk

Sharp and dry and I like

This wouldn’t be my favorite fragrance ever, but I am glad I got it. It packs a punch, which is mostly a good thing. It just comes across a little bit harsh until it really dries down

UPDATE: I learned that Alexandria fragrances do well with time to mascerate and I find that is true here. After a few weeks it seems to have mellowed a bit on the opening notes and I really enjoy the dry coppery notes that develop.

I recently moved to a warmer climate but I love woody and spicy scents more than fruity or fresh ones, so I was concerned that my fragrance library would be poorly suited to my new location, but this one will be perfect to wear on a hot day and still give me the spicy warm feel I love.

African Magik / African Leather

Ok, people, more real talk here, just buy it.. All my Mature Blue Collar Brothers out there could rock this as a signature scent, that means Business / Shop owners, Union stewards, & Supervisors this is clean, and professional with an edge that BCB's can respect and understand. Since Money talks and we know what walks... Keep it Pushing... Rock that African Magic

My sample came in today. Haven’t smelled the OG but This scent is exquisite. Earthy, spicy, patchouli saffron leathery cardamom bomb. Ive been to Kenya and this reminds me of some of some of the spice markets there. The drydown is OMG. Job well done. This one is big bottle worthy. Can’t stop sniffing my arm. Job well done

Very good perfume

I have sampled Memo Paris African leather. I don't see difference between the 2. This is a very good fragrance.

Love it as always

Now that I’m buying this again since I never want to run out, I noticed it smells like Au Coeur Du Desert from Tauer lol. I guess Tauer’s hit must smell like African leather. Regardless, this is always excellent. Yes it’s best suited for fall and winter, but since it smells like the cardamom tea with saffron I’ll use it all year. Excellent smell and this thang last!!’
