The delicate process of making Ricardo Ramos' perfumes combines the latest technology in the production of perfume oil, with the selection of the most precious raw materials from all over the world and sophisticated synthesis molecules, to then be carefully conditioned and packaged one by one by hand, in an artisanal way in Granada/Spain.
Production is made on demand, following a "slow perfumery" philosophy.
Ricardo Ramos is a fashion designer and a perfumer of Colombian origin, who inherited his sense of smell from his paternal grandfather, also named Ricardo Ramos. a horseman and pioneer in Colombia's coffee export business from the late 1940s to the mid-1980s of the 20th century, as well a great promoter of the implementation of international coffee strains in Colombian territory, he was who taught his grandson from the early age of 7 the importance of the sense of smelling through coffee.
