    Question Anyone smell Ramon Monegal's Mon Patchouly?

    This smells like fish heads sauteed with carpet cleaner solution; it's extremely repulsive.

    But its priced at $175 for 1.7 OZ, so I'm assuming someone likes this.

    I don't get fish or carpet cleaner from this thank god. Instead I get a nice mix of patchouli & jasmine joined together in harmony with hints of geranium, amber and just a touch of incense. I find it nice but quite strong and linear.

    This is a strong, bold fragrance and it is NOT a patchouli genre scent - yes it is misnamed - so test it well before buying. Mon Patchouly is a jasmine fragrance, mostly, that is full of indoles, which I like, together with an amber base and sharpness of patchouli creates a leather feel after the opening. Patchouli is fuel to the fire but never overcomes the jasmine dominance. A strong fragrance with high quality ingredients, but an example of a misleading name for a fragrance. "Mon Jasmine" probably would not sell as well.

    Never tried it myself, but interesting how this is perceived in different ways by different people. For perfumeshrine, it's a boozy amber

    (though interestingly she does mention the word slightly repelling).

    I sampled two Ramon's yesterday: Mon Cuir and Agar Musk. Both lasted damn near 12 hours on me, both evolved into curiously different scents, and both are something worth having to vary your collection --if you've got the cash!

    I post because RM deserves a little more credit to it's design.

    I'm new to the scene so I probably don't get it yet. But I'm not sure which occasion you can wear this. I cant fathom wearing this for work or school. This could be offensive.

    I tried it when sampling various patchoulis and found it good. But not good enough to purchase a FB. No fish heads or carpet cleaner, blessedly.

    Wow.

    This. Is. NICE.

    When I bought Aqua Universalis last spring, they threw in a free sample of Mon Patchouly by Ramon Monegal. I gave it a sniff, but for some reason, it didn't interest me at all. I put it away & forgot about it... until today. This stuff is excellent. It smells so sweet on paper, but on my skin, it mellows out into such a rich yet gentle amber. Wow again.

    I found this to be one of the more pleasant ones from the house.

    I still have my tiny sample from 2013 that I haven't used yet. This still doesn't interest me. It doesn't smell well blended. But I respect L'Homme's opinion so maybe I'm wrong or got a bad sample.

    Just out of curiosity... how dark is the juice in your sample? In my sample, the juice is DAAAARK!!! It's so dark orange that it leaves the skin orange where applied.

    I should add that, by the end of the day, my opinion is starting to waver a bit on this one. There's something so gentle and airy about it, which I love. But there's also something that leaves me unsure. Perhaps it's the way the patch does (or doesn't?) mix with the amber.
