Ramón Monegal was born in Barcelona in 1951. Surrounded by several generations of perfumers, he grew up under the magic and influence of scents capable of evoking emotions. The Myrurgia house was his first professional home. He is a member of the fourth generation of founders that worked there.
1972 was the year of his debut as an apprentice of the arts and crafts that for him were born from the depths of his heart.
The best essences, absolutes, concretes, infusions of amber, musk, tonka bean, castoreum, civet, iris and others. His training continued for years in Geneva with his mentor, the maître parfumeur Artur Jordi Pey (Firmenich), then in Grasse with the maître parfumeur Marcel Carles (Roure Bertrand and Argeville) and finally in Paris with the maître parfumeur Pierre Bourdon (Takasago and Fragrance Resources ).
From his first beginnings, Ramón Monegal developed the concept of «olfactory image» with great meticulousness and zeal in the elaboration of his creations in all its phases and aspects from the process of idealization, design and communication. To improve all his acquired knowledge, such as architecture, he started in 1977 at the Barcelona Design Center, which allowed him to add more value to his professional career.
