Ramón Monegal

Impossible Iris

$6.00

Iris is one of my favourite notes in perfumery, but it’s a toughie. What makes iris such a difficult note for perfumers to work with is its range of facets from metallic and cold to earthy, bitter, sweet and floral, but with Impossible Iris Ramón Monegal shows his gift for taking difficult notes and taming their harshness and highlighting their other aspects to make them more supple and sensuous. He certainly does that with iris in Impossible Iris.

Entre Naranjos

$6.00

 
A citrus with white floral and aromatic green accords, Entre Naranjos is zesty and sheer. From the first moments of its cologne-like opening, right through to the aromatic dry-down, Entre Naranjos is really all about orange - I see orange, as well as smell and taste it - but this orange is an elixir, not a candy.

Mon Patchouly

$6.00

Mon Patchouly is definitely all about creative expression, quality and nuance. It’s the most original patchouli scent I’ve come across in years of seeking out the perfect patchouli fragrance. It’s an Oriental, with a foot in the Woody and Gourmand camps, but in the end is much more than either.

Mon Cuir

$6.00

Launched in 2012, Mon Cuir is one of 14 fragrances in the Ramón Monegal line and my current fave.
 
Ramón Monegal was born into a family of the most important perfumers in Barcelona and Spain the house Myrurgia, which founded in 1916 by Esteban Monegal Prat. Over time it became the leading perfumery company in Spain.
 
Ramón Monegal started working for the family business in 1972 and then trained in perfumery Geneva under Artur Jordi, in Grasse under Marcel Carles and in Paris with Pierre Bourdon.
