    Re: Article: An interview with Ramon Monegal

    I discovered Ramón Monegal in November 2011, searching for information about Myrurgia. I could collect several Myrurgia vintage perfumes and I'm very happy about that.
    I contacted Ramón Monegal beginning of December 2011 and I got 23 fragrance samples - the current 14 plus some fragrances, available at the RM store in Barcelona only. I started with my tests and I wrote the reviews - so my connection with RM an my simpathy for the fragrances begun. The fragrances offer a really wide range for every taste and I guess, there will be some nice surprice from Ramón in the future.
    I'm very curious about that! :-)

    It seems that their sampling program has gotten off the ground. I have just received an e-mail about it from the company. The "discovery size" is 2 ml and the prices including shipping are:

    1 sample = 5 EUR
    7 samples = 25 EUR
    14 samples = 50 EUR

    Payment is via PayPal, you can place your order by e-mailing [email protected].
    This is great news if it means more opportunity for people to try this line. I've been exploring the line for a while now and the more I get to know them, the more I get from them and the more I enjoy them. They are gorgeous. Really quite special I think. My favourites are;

    Entre Naranjos, bright, sparkling neroli and petigrain with an unexpected twist.
    L'Eau de Rose, crystal clear rose.
    Cuirelle, honeyed suede.
    Impossible Iris, exactly as it says.
    Ambra de Luna, sensuous and reassuring amber and castoreum.

    Once you get your samples why don't you pop over to Alfa's big discussion thread, http://www.basenotes.net/.../302340-...ona-A-New-Line. There is lots of great stuff there. Please join in!!

    Thanks for your lovely post Florblanca, and you engar. It is so nice to see our Spanish friends here!

    I didn't realize that the bottles were shaped like ink wells. Duh.

    2ml is better than those .7 ml from Luckyscent. Hope they ship to the U.S.

    I love reading this interview, and now I'm looking forward to sampling the fragrances, especially Impossible Iris. I love the idea of the inkwell bottles. :)

    Wow great read!!
    I did not know that you make such good interviews:-)

    But i think emotions have gender so perfumes too, i know i cant get the same emotions with my male friends as with my female friends, we talk in different expressions! Some are more acceptable for men and some for women, he can talk whatever he wants but i noticed men cant appreciate enough some floral notes as well as women cant appreciate some animalic notes, speaking in general:-)

    I wish i can try his iris, i am so much in love with that note now!! Also entre naranjos , uf how i wish to smell them:-)

    Thank you Alfarom

    Great interview! You certainly have a knack for asking the right questions, Alfarom. :)

    You had me at "restrained and sophisticated." LOL. Hope to get a sniff of these one day. I quite like the inkwell bottles too but not the awkward orientation of the banner-like sticker labels which forces you to turn your head sideways just to read the fragrance name. Believe it or not it is the number one reason why I cannot bring myself to buy a L'Artisan Parfumeur...

    Thanks very much indeed Alfarom for your great contribution!

    Is it possible to obtain a discovery set for these scents?

    Do you know?

    Thanks very much indeed...

    Wonderful interview, Alfa! I, like others particularly was interested in RM's take on the creation of Impossible Iris, as it is indeed a rarity in the fact that it is pretty much universally appealing despite someone's proclivity towards iris going in. A great read; many thanks!

    Thank you, Alfarom. I wonderful read and a new discovery for me. It's as if the soul of the creator really shines through the approach, philosophy, and (I imagine) scent creations of this perfumer. I hope to try these some day.
