Ramon Monegal created his first personalised perfume in 1977 for his bride to wear on their wedding day. It was a white powdery floral fragrance based on the iris root.
Since then, iris has been one of the creator's obsessions. It is the most unclassifiable, elegant, beautiful, expensive ingredient there is. The root must be dried for three years before its precious essence can be extracted.
But it does not last as much as it costs and making it last is almost… impossible!
