our story

Maison Mona di Orio, founded in 2004, was created by 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 six years alongside world-renowned parfumeur Edmond Roudnitska.

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.


A perfume is above all the art of Raw Materials.

On the heights of Grasse, in France, is the mythical Domaine Sainte Blanche imagined and designed by Edmond Roudnitska, one of the most famous perfumer of the XXth century and Mona’s Master for six years.

In its 10 hectare landscaped garden stands Accords et Parfums the production site engaged in the manufacturing of our concentrates making sure we have access to the best Raw Materials sourched from the whole world.



Fredrik’s style of perfumery is deeply rooted in his love for nature and storytelling. It made sense choosing fragrance as his tool to tell these stories as his interest in everything scented has followed him from childhood. He has worked all over Europe in his search for new inspiration, olfactory knowledge, and a finding places where his romanticized idea of the world rings true. He eventually ended up at Accord & Parfums in Cabris as a Junior Perfumer, this is also where he met Jeroen Oude Sogtoen. Six years have passed since then and Jeroen and Fredrik have been hard at work creating a new olfactory language together on the foundation of MMDO. The true luxury of emotion.  

“ As in-house perfumer at Maison di Orio I ensure that all our perfumes are born from originality and composed from the very best materials sourced from all parts of the world, taking you to beautiful places or memories that you love.” 

Fredrik Dalman



Maison  Mona di Orio created their signature flacon in synchronicity with the striking perfumes it would hold. Influenced by the splendor of Art Deco aesthetics and the era’s prominent sculptor Constantin Brancusi with his fascination for the oval shape, the bottle is a beautiful composition of art and light. 

Floating above the glass plinth, rests the bronze cap with lacquered inlay. There is simplicity in the smooth curving form, with its sensual, elongated oval line highlighted by the gilt of its reflective surface. Paired with distinct rectilinear lines, the radiant cap casts a subtle shadow on the bottle below, announcing Mona’s olfactory chiaroscuro style.

Working closely with Jeroen Oude Sogtoen, the flacon was designed in union with the renown Ateliers Dinand in Paris.
