Founded in 2004, Maison MONA DI ORIO was created by the perfumer, Mona di Orio, and designer, Jeroen Oude Sogtoen, as a union of their mutual love of art and artisanal craftsmanship. Mona trained in classical perfumery for ten years alongside world-renowned perfumer Edmond Roudnitska.
Maison MONA DI ORIO defines unconventional perfume traditions that align olfactory chiaroscuro with the richness of golden age perfumery and uncompromising luxury. In the spirit of Haute Parfumerie, Maison MONA DI ORIO perfumes bloom on skin revealing a harmonious orchestration of light, art and nature.
Influenced by light and nature, Mona sought to capture the quintessence of an ingredient. She constructed fragrances as a composer, playing on harmonies and melodies that develop with skin.
Her characteristic style is a journey of light and dark elements with lively, sparkling notes that recall the joyous moment of opening a bottle of champagne, layered with dark, seductive nuances and mysterious pleasures. With a distinct focus on craft and quality, raw materials are carefully selected and controlled by Accords et Parfums in Cabris, the prestigious atelier founded by Mona’s master, Monsieur Roudnitska, and known for their standards of excellence.
With the highest quality ingredients, Mona achieved unique identity and credibility with her constructions that seem almost minimalist in formula, yet strikingly faceted in composition and a lasting sillage.
A PERFUME IS, ABOVE ALL, THE ART OF RAW MATERIALS
THE ART OF MAKING PERFUME
On the heights of Grasse, in France, is the mythical Domaine Sainte Blanche imagined and designed by Edmond Roudnitska, one of the most famous perfumers of the XXth century. In its 10 hectare landscaped garden stands Accords et Parfums, the production site engaged in the manufacturing of concentrates from Maison MONA DI ORIO.
