Lalibela by Memo Paris is a Chypre Floral fragrance for women.
A touch of mystery, a haze of velvet and flowers, and supremacy reflected in a floral woody composition. The perfume pays tribute to the Christian city of Lalibela in Ethiopia. The zeal for the legendary place is celebrated with a heavenly compilation of rose, peony, and orchid flowers, beside a lactonic touch of yummy coconut that gives the initial hints of rather richer jasmine and vanilla in the core. Signs of mystery emerge from the denser and darker elements in the base.

This is a beautiful perfume. On me, it is mainly an incense vanilla with some floral accents and a hint of coconut. The name seems appropriate. The ancient Lalibela churches of Ethiopia are one of the wonders of the world and were said to have been built overnight by angels. I could believe it while wearing this perfume!
I purchased a 2ml decant and this scent confused me. I liked it and I didn't though I wanted more? Purchased a 10ml travel size from another retailer and will likely wear late winter, early spring. Will definitely need to be in a certain mood to reach for it.
This is nice but too delicate and feminine for me. I can't really tell I'm wearing it.
While visiting Kosovo stop at the small shop and feel in love with this scent, brought home a sample and I'll be purchasing a large ml of this fragrance.
