Ramon Monegal- Dubai Next To Me (bloomingdale's Dubai Exclusive)
I've had the hardest time wrapping my mind around Ramon Monegal's Dubai Next To Me and figuring it out, It didn't help any that two out of three times I've worn it the husband found something to complain about: the rose, the dirty oud, something about the spice (he's not a fan of saffron-rose blends), the fruitiness, the rose, and the rose again. He really doesn't like rose notes in perfume (and I suspect he also gives the stinkeye to our three and a half rose bushes). To be honest, I'm not necessarily a rose person myself, except for a rather long list of exceptions (here and here). Roman Monegal's other rose offerings fell apart on my skin almost upon contact so all the samples went to waste. But Dubai Next To Me has been giving me so much to think about has it's been doing things,. . .
