Irish luxury perfume gets Bergdorf-Goodman listing
The luxury perfume company Memo, which is co-owned by Tipperary man John Molloy, has secured a listing with the upmarket New York department store Bergdorf-Goodman.
Molloy, who grew up on a farm near Thurles, set up Memo with his wife Clara in 2007.
By 2012, the business had grown to the point that he left his job as international marketing director for the cosmetics firm Lancôme to join his wife in the business full time.
Having launched with a range of four perfumes, the Molloys now produce 17 different scents which sell for between €155 and €185 a bottle.
