Memo Paris – Les Echappées – Inlé
Floating gardens, boats like palaces, rustling silk: Inlé takes its name from a lake in Burma and captures its atmosphere with sunny ease. Like sunlight on water, the scent sparkles with fresh herbs, bergamot, mint, and discreetly bitter vermouth. All is transparent, calm, and sonorous. Moving into the heart, the delicate peach skin tannins of osmanthus lend a stone fruit tonality to the warm jasmine and delicate mate. Soft strands of cedar, iris, and musk catch at the heart from below, like fronds in the lake catching at the lazily drifting boat.
A gently fruity floral fragrance, Inlé certainly captures the spirit of its inspiration. The scene is as follows:
“Times stands still over lake Inlé in Burma. The women gather their silk embroidery and the men begin their dance above the waters, in boats that resemble floating palaces. The fruit and vegetables market is coming alive in the fresh mist. You can see the first light of the day; hear the first sounds of festive celebration – a farewell to night or a welcome to the dawn.”
