Ramon Monegal Mon Patchouly EDP Perfume Video Review

Do I need to remind you that I’m a patch-head? Well, I am. I love patchouli, so the first perfume I decided to try from the Ramon Monegal line was Mon Patchouly. It was love at first smell.

Ramon Monegal Mon Patchouly

Mon Patchouly opens with raspberry liquor, cocoa powder, and a camphoric patchouli-geranium = boozy patchouli. Under this is an “amber chypre”. Usually perfumes that “pull” in two directions in the opening are awful. This one works perfectly. Complex but not bewildering. With time I get something unexpected – a delicious jasmine. Why didn’t I know that jasmine and patchouli are wonderful together until now? What have I been missing? With time the fragrance warms up as a boozy, tobacco vanilla. And then I get amber. Like boozy, rum-like tobacco vanilla with amber. It’s such a “Victoria” fragrance. The fragrance is exceptional. But, remember, I’m a patch-head. Why I love this one is because it is unlike other patchouli fragrances that I love and own. It’s a rather new (and successful) take on the patchouli-gourmand.

Notes listed include Indonesian patchouli leaf, olibanum, oakmoss, bourbon geranium, Egyptian jasmine and amber. PERFUMER – Ramon Monegal

Give Mon Patchouly a try if you like patchouli. Or if you like perfumes like Tom Ford Private Blend Tuscan Leather, Chanel Coco EDP, Kerosene Fields of Rubus, L’Artisan Parfumeur Vanille Absolument, Mugler A*Men, Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 and/or huffing patchouli leaves. I consider this scent unisex but it does lean more towards the masculine end of the spectrum.

This perfume has great sillage and projection. It has above average longevity. Oh, and the packaging is gorgeous, has a wonderful feel in person.

The 1.7 EDP retails for $185 at Luckyscent. 

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONBoozy patchouli gourmand. I’ve found another patchouli to love! This one is perfect for me.

  1. A patchouli gourmand? I’ll have to try that. I usually don’t like patchouli (Patchouli 24 is an exception). And it’s mixed with jasmine? Wonderful.

    • But, is Patchouli 24 really a patchouli? ;) It’s delicious leather to me. And that isn’t a bad thing at all!
      I hope you can give it a try.

  2. First, I have to say that I am really diggin’ your hair. Is the streak a permanent highlight?

    You make this fragrance sound amazing, and it’s always helpful the way you list other perfumes which share similarities or a vibe with the perfume you’re reviewing. So, a boozy patchouli for the kind of person who enjoys scents like Coco edp and Borneo 1834? Yep, that would be me. I’ll definitely check this out in the near future.

    • Yes, I highlighted. And then I put blue over it, lol. The blonde made me feel weird.

      Check it out if you can. I really like it, but I’m so partial to patch fragrances that it is difficult for me to give a “fair” review! I just liked this one because it is modern but could be enjoyed by someone that really likes something like Coco.
      And the packaging is gorgeous :)

  3. Thanks for the great review. I am finding that I am digging the “patch” myself. You got me at the combination of Patch and OakMoss. I have wondered about the Monegal line too. I was a bit worried that they launched with so many in the line.

    • I was very skeptical about this line because of the # of launches and the prices. However, I’ve tried them all and I only dislike 1 (Dry Wood). And I’d happily add 4 to my collection, not bad odds, really.
