Not everyone agrees with me on this, but the word “bitch” shouldn’t be an insult. Like many women, I’ve chosen to reclaim this word. Kiss My Name is a bitch tuberose. It’s powerful. It’s not an object. It’s not here to be pretty and sexy even if we think she is. This in-control tuberose looks at other tuberoses and says, “Kiss my name”.
Rose Week 2014
Ramon Monegal L’Eau de Rose is a like a refreshing rose-scented cocktail on ice.
L’Eau de Rose opens as this dewy, fresh rose with cucumber slices. It’s sheer, cool and refreshing. It reminds me of rose water splashed into club soda. L’Eau de Rose is rather linear.

Ramon Monegal Impossible is a nice “feminine” iris with traces of fruit and white florals.
Impossible Iris opens as a slightly fruity iris with a peppery greenness. It’s not too rooty or earthy. It’s not an old-fashioned barbershop iris. Nor is it overly powdery. It’s a well-balanced iris. With time Impossible Iris becomes more floral, more lady-like with night-blooming white florals. Most white florals want to be the lead singer; the white florals in Impossible Iris are back up singers…and I thought that wasn’t possible!… Continue reading | 3 Comments
