Ramon Monegal Lovely Day EDP Perfume Review

Ramon Monegal Lovely Day

Ramon Monegal Lovely Day is sweet with an edge. And that’s how I want my lovely days to be.

Lovely Day opens with a juicy, fruity cassis with a sugar cube iris. The fragrance becomes candied, but in a floral way. It reminds me of rose pastilles and blackcurrant jam. It then turns into a soft floral, like jasmine tea, with a hint of licorice rolled in powdered sugar. It wears as this for most of the wear. There is an addition of a sweet, dry cedar at the dry-down.

Lovely Day is a pretty perfume, really pretty but it has an edge. I couldn’t really put my finger on it the first few wears. There’s something sort of latex-y in Lovely Day. That’s sort of awesome. It blends in with the powdery, sugary notes adding a needed weirdness. So it comes across as “pastel goth”/Japanese street style to me.

Best 1930’s fashion. Ever.

Notes listed include sambac jasmine, rose, licorice, iris, cedar and cassis. Launch date 2011. PERFUMER – Ramon Monegal

Give Lovely Day a try if you like candied floral perfumes. Or if you like perfumes like Bvlgari Jasmin Noir, Etat Libre d’Orange Charogne, Montale Jasmin Full, S-Perfume 100% Love and/or CREED Love in Black. It’s a fruity-floral so many are going to associate it with the feminine.

Fun fact #1 – David hates Lovely Day.

Fun fact #2 – I don’t give a hoot.

Fun fact #3 – Despite his hatred of this fragrance, he summed it up nicely for a person that claims to be a non-perfume person. He said, “This smells like if Chanel tried to make a rendition of Guerlain Insolence“. I can see this.

Lovely Day has average projection and above average longevity. I get 10+ hours wear.

The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $185 at Luckyscent. Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A slightly “fetish-y” candied floral. Sweet but wearing black latex opera gloves. I like it. It’s not one for everyone as it does have a chemical “offness”. But, that’s why I like it.

    1. Probably not broken 🙂 I’ve noticed that there is something in each of these RM, an aromachemical that is like a fruity-musk that is dry. It doesn’t bother me but I find many people try them and that’s all they’re picking up is “chemical” when they describe it. Musks are weird like that.

        1. Here’s the deal, I really don’t need to buy anything (trying to save for a trip and have some business expenses as well) but I like it. I think it’s a good split candidate 🙂
