      This is a very unusual woman.

      We met several years ago, and I was struck by her naturalness and genuine passion.

      It's great to know that Mona Di Orio is coming up with new fragrance. It's too bad that they're so expensive though.:sad::sad: Anyways, it's good to see that she is a very nice, down to earth person. She is a lovely person!!

      She looks quite different than in her press photos which tend to elongate her face. She seems genuinely warm and at ease. I like her energy. Thanks to Dani!
