Winter Palace by Memo Paris is an Aromatic Green fragrance for women and men.
Winter Palace is a stunner for tea lovers. It is a breathtakingly beautiful tea fragrance that initiates with the fizzy smoldering smell of orange peel and red tea, merged with the heat of tolu balsam and mate tea, slightly freshened with lemon and bergamot. The core resting on a rich woody ambiance underlines the contrast between fire and ice to emerge hypnotic China and its imperial palaces. A tea fragrance that bridges excitement to tranquility.

Very much just citrus and vanilla which doesn’t work out so well here together.
For me, tea scents exist along a continuum, with fresh and juicy at one end and warm and spicy at the other. This one is somewhere in the middle. It starts on the fresh side and moves towards the spicy/warm end as time goes on.
I love African Leather but this is not a leather scent FYI. Wonderful icey opening, reminds me somewhat of Creed Himalaya, so if you like that one try this one, but I like this one much better. Tea note on the dry down, performance is long lasting. Totally unisex but leans masculine in my opinion.
This starts out bright and interesting and redolent of Rooiba tea, but the dry down is very strange on my skin. Reviews on Fragrantica consistently call it bubblegum, which I don’t really understand. But the more it dried down, the more I disliked it. Usually love Memo, but this does not work for me.
