Ramon Monegal Cuirelle EDP Perfume Review

Ramon Monegal Cuirelle

I can’t help it and it has nothing to do with this perfume, but every time I see or wear Ramon Monegal Cuirelle, I think “Cuirelle de Vil”. Don’t worry there is nothing scary or evil about this fragrance but it does have that certain glamour that Cruella has.

Cuirelle opens with spices and warmth. It’s as soft as cashmere with a cosmetic waxiness that reminds me of rose scented lipstick. Cuirelle morphs into incense and French dusting powder (hint of violet). The texture of this perfume reminds me of Caron powder puffs. The dry-down of Cuirelle is honeyed amber incense and a dry vetiver.

Cuirelle is one of those perfumes that reminds me of another perfume. After testing and testing, I realize it doesn’t remind me of a perfume. It reminds me of lots of perfumes mixing together and making something new yet hauntingly familiar. I store my perfumes in a cabinet. When I open the cabinet, it always smells wonderful. This is what Cuirelle smells like.

Notes listed include Somali incense, patchouli, vetiver bourbon, green cedarwood, cinnamon and beeswax. Launch date 2011. PERFUMER – Ramon Monegal

Give Cuirelle a try if you warm fragrances. Or perfumes like HEELEY Cuir Pleine Fleur, Keiko Mecheri Cuir Cordoba, Diptyque Volutes, Serge Lutens Chergui and/or Amouage Jubilation XXV. Cuirelle is unisex. I think it’s a good choice for fall/winter.

Cuirelle has average projection and above average longevity.

The 1.7 oz EDP retails for $185 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.

  1. “hauntingly familiar” is a great description of this. I have a sample and I also thought it reminded me of something. I really like it but I don’t know if I love it yet.

    1. THere are others from this line that I enjoy wearing more. I can see why people like it, but I’m enjoying the florals in the line more.

    1. I love my powder puff. It is expensive but one of the most luxurious things that I own. I keep it in an antique jadeite sugar bowl that perfectly matches my puff. She needs one. Seriously. She will love it and it is something she will never buy herself.

    1. I think Mon Patchouly is still my favorite from the line.
      Try Cuirelle in the fall. I think I’ll find myself wanting it then.
