Memoire Liquide Vacances Liquide Review

Fragrance Review: Memoire Liquide Vacances Liquide

Vacances Liquide ($95) is like a more grown-up, luxe-smelling version of the popular Harajuku Lovers "G" scent. If you love coconut, tropical florals, and vanilla, you'll eat this one up. It opens up with a bright burst of very real jasmine, sashays its way into a mix of beachy floral and coconut water that smells like the best parts of sunscreen, then dries down to a soft, slightly woody vanilla that makes your heart break for the smell and feel of old redwood decking in the May sun.

It's an unabashedly summery scent, and the creators weren't joking when they said they designed it to smell like vacations, because it does. It reminds me of every trip to the beach, every Summer day spent swimming in lakes and sleeping on docks, and every afternoon spent lazing under the shade of Carolina jasmine creepers. It's rare that a fragrance can evoke such a general sense of nostalgia, but everyone I've asked to smell it feels the same way. A gorgeous scent for the first warm, blue-skied day you get. Wear it on a gray day, too, for a touch of the sweet sadness of memory and the promise of sun-soaked, lazy times to come.
