Perfumer Mona di Orio was a a classically trained perfumer, having at a young age developed a complex, rich style akin to the originality of fragrances in the 1920s under the wing of Master Perfumer Edmond Roudnitska. Her fragrances, though inspired by the past, always leaned toward the future. She attributed her unconventional blends not just to her sense of smell, but to the sight of vivid colors, the sound of her favorite melodies and the feeling of touch. Moda di Orio passed away in December 2011 at the age of 42, but left behind her legacy in her olfactory creations.
