Ramon Monegal Barcelona
Ramón Monegal comes from a long and distinguished line of the most important perfumers in Barcelona and Spain. He represents the fourth generation of the founders of the house of Myrurgia, which was the official purveyor of the Spanish Royal Family, and the most important international perfumer in Spain.
His training began back in 1972 at Myrurgia, where he submerged himself completely and became intimate with the most essential of scents such as the mythical infusions of amber, tonka bean, musk, castoreum, civet and iris. These were the treasured secrets of the house and the key ingredients to the only couture perfumes existing at the time. Monegal's training continued in Geneva with his mentor, the maître parfumeur Artur Jordi Pey (Firmenich), then in Grasse with Marcel Carles (Roure Bertrand and Argeville) and finally in Paris with Pierre Bourdon (Takasago and Fragrance Resources).
From his beginnings as a perfumer, Ramón Monegal showed courage, good taste and mastery of the most complicated and costly ingredients. Monegal seeks to use the most noble and delicate essences that exist in the world, creating fragrances that induce feelings and emotions, fragrances that evoke a timeless Mediterranean passion and whose elaboration restores the natural language of the craft —to excite, entice, surprise, create desire, pleasure and magic.
