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 perfumes bloom on skin revealing a harmonious orchestration of light, art and nature.
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.
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.
