Somewhere on the Persian Gulf coast in ancient Arabia there once existed the ancient city of Gerrha. The bustling trading post attracted merchants from all over the world. It was one of the most important points on the Incense trade route, which was a network of ancient sea and land trading routes that stretched from Mediterranean ports across Egypt and Levant through the Northeastern parts of Africa and Arabia to India. In Gerrha, merchants traded exotic goods coming from India like sandalwood, silk, and spices with regionally produced frankincense and myrrh and goods from Northeaster Africa like Gold and Somali incense. By the second century AD, trade in the region has completely died out due to expansion of alternate trade routes and trade methods, and with it the ancient city of Gerrha was once again reclaimed by the desert sands, never to be found again.

We only use the highest quality natural and synthetic materials from reputable suppliers in all of our products. The word synthetic in perfume is often misunderstood and gets a bad rep because it is manmade, but many of the strictest regulations in perfume come from natural materials! With that being said, Momento perfumes are not IFRA compliant as we do not want to be restricted by using inferior materials when there are far more superior ones. One example of that is oakmoss. We use a beautiful and natural oakmoss material in Hoi An and if we were to replace that material with a synthetic one like Veramoss/ Eveyleen the perfume would not be up to our standards. With that being said, we are always on the hunt for new and exciting materials, and if a new material comes along that is IFRA compliant and retains the characteristic of the restricted material we will gladly make the switch.
WE RECOMMEND TO ALWAYS DO A SKIN PATCH TEST BY SPRAYING A SMALL SECTION OF YOUR INNER ARM AND WAIT TO SEE IF THERE IS A REACTION. DO NOT USE IF REDNESS OR IRRITATION OCCURS (Only a small number of people will show reaction) If a reaction occurs, stop using the product immediately and wash with soap and water to clean the affected area. If self treatment is not effective, consult your medical provider. Perfume is not for consumption. Keep away from eyes and mucous membranes.
We, "Momento Perfumery", assume no liability for any claims arising out of the use or misuse of these perfumes. Keep all perfumes out of reach of children. If you are pregnant or nursing a baby, have heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other medical condition that can be affected by essential oils or fragrances, please seek the advice of a health professional before using perfumes.
