    A meeting with Mona di Orio
    by Grant Osborne, 15 May 2006

    Earlier this year we had the chance to meet Mona di Orio, a perfumer who had the opportunity to learn under Edmond Roudnitska for many years. She told us her story...

    Thanks for this lovely article, Grant!

    I've been interested in her scents since reading Donna's raves of Nuit Noire... I quick-sniffed all three scents on cards in Brussels in February and ordered samples of Carnation and Nuit Noire last week to test them on my skin.

    She's beautiful, btw: looks like a star of the silent screen!

    I agree Tigs, she is a hot babe, very classy and elegant! I wonder if her fragrances refelct her soft, supple portrait? Maybe you can do a review Tigs. Great write-up Grant, I enjoyed the article!

    I hope to get the samples this week so can test them and possibly even scribble a few words about them during the weekend... [smiley=happy.gif]

    Her story is an inspiration to us all. Just goes to show that if you want something and work hard enough you can achieve your goals.
