          Mona di Orio Passed Away Today

          We are sad to inform you of the untimely death of perfumer Mona di Orio.

          The report from her team on the company's Facebook page: "Today, completely unexpected and leaving us in great sorrow, our great inspirer, friend, colleague and name giver to her great loves, her beautiful parfum creations, MONA DI ORIO has passed away."

          Mona di Orio
          was born and raised in France to an Italian father and a Spanish mother. She had a lifelong fascination with fragrances. She would go on to graduate with an art degree, but a fateful encounter with famed perfumer Edmond Roudnitska led her on a new adventure. She was his pupil for 15 years, and for six years worked alongside him in his laboratory in Cabris, a small village near Grasse.

          Mona di Orio Parfums was founded in 2004, with partner Jeroen Oude Sogtoen. Her fragrances were crafted with respect for the traditions of the past, with a modern touch and an eye towards the future, or as the company describes them, "unconventional perfume traditions." Quality and craftsmanship were emphasized above all, and the fragrances captured the attention of fragrance fans with their unique scents and distinctive champagne muselet closures.

          Mona di Orio introduced Les Nombres d'Or collection beginning in 2010. Inpired by the concept of the Golden Ratio in mathematics and art, the fragrances strive for the perfect proportion of fine raw materials that would produce a melodious harmony. Les Nombres d'Or editions focusing on classic fragrance accords such as Vanilla, Vetiver, Tuberose, Amber, Leather and Musc were introduced beginning in 2010. A special luxury edition of the collection, Les Nombres D'or Oud, was issued in 2011.

          The passing of Mona di Orio is a loss for the perfume world. The world is always a bit dimmer with the loss of an artist's bright spark. We leave you with a quote from Mona di Orio describing her philosophy and aesthetic as a perfumer: "I want to create fragrances that make people feel, dream, travel, remember and surprise."

          The Fragrantica team expresses deepest condolences to Mona's family and loved ones. Rest in Peace, dear Mona.

          Mona was a great perfumer, probably if she had sold herself to the big already existing houses she would have become a Master Perfumer in 2 years, but she wanted something else, to be free, she was still an artist, one with a diploma as she said, but above all, she was an effervescent and pleasant, refined woman. I met her twice and she immediately fascinated me, once in 2008 when she joined the European Feminist Lodge and she was at a presentation event where I was attending as a senior, and once in 2010 at a lodge charity ball in Luxembourg, both times I think we talked for hours, she was a person who spoke about perfumes with an incredible passion, with a fire in her eyes. I remember that in 2008 she was extremely upset by what an American monkey, that I never heard before, had written about her perfumes, which had caused some American idiotic companies to withdraw her perfumes from the market, I know she had received some advice from a few marketing directors at the lodge to concentrate on Europe more and forget USA and in some years they will got in their knees to give them permission for selling her creations. This happened quite quickly, and of course like a sign of revenge her company sent very few pieces and at very high prices, even tripled or more compared to Europe. In 2010 she was at the peak of success and happy. When I heard about her death, I was shocked. A person did not die this case, but an entire constellation went out, Mona Di Orio will be alive forever but unfortunately her creative genius went in the dark.
          Rest in peace darling, you will always be in our hearts.

          Oh that's terrible! Only yesterday I was online searching for samples and added her name to my list. It's sad to read that someone in the prime of their career has passed away. My thoughts go out to her loved ones, family and fans. What a tragedy.

          I am only now beginning to explore Mona di Orio fragrances and feel so saddened knowing this beautiful and talented young woman was taken way too early. All I could find of any note was that the surgery was not of a grave or serious nature, but complications ensuing ended up taking her life. Who knows what was the true cause, if it was a weakness in her condition that made her vulnerable or if an accident happened that ended up being fatal.

          At least Mona lives on through her fragrance line, with most of her creations still being made and new ones following. I plan to sample as many as I can and have already bought one bottle (vetyver). But I wonder what will happen to her work... her business partner, Sogtoen, has said "Mona created lots of formulas but I have decided to close the collections made by Mona." So who knows what is to come... time may be running out to know her own creations before another perfumeur assumes the creative position at Mona di Orio fragrances.

          This was posted on Basenotes:
          "Mona had to undergo a small surgery, during the surgery, some complications started to happen, and unfortunately our beloved Mona di Orio, never made it back, she died due to complications resulted from the surgery."

          from Osmoz (osmoz.com): "Her accidental death, caused by post-operative complications, means that Mona di Orio will join the pantheon of perfumers who died too young, alongside Laurent Bruyère, Béatrice Piquet and others."

          So, so desperately sad.

          It's a comfort to mourn here with people who appreciated her art and life.

          There has not been a lot of info available about what happened, but a couple blogs mentioned she had been hospitalized for an illness and died during or shortly after a surgery. So sad. She was only 42.

          Whoa! that is really terrible! She was such an artist and I had a great love of many of her perfumes. I'm very saddened by the news.

          prot72 12/10/11 05:25

          This is horrible news. Few weeks ago I had pleasure to spend wonderful evening with Mona in niche perfumery in Poland. We were discussing her plans for the future... She was so creative person so unbelievably talented and focused to make people happy with her creations. I can't believe she passed away. Now is huge hole in the creative not mass marked perfumery and our souls. There are only a few people in the history that was so extremely focused and determined to show us the real beauty of surrounding world, and she was that unusual person. It will never be enough sadness to show our pain. I'm so sad.

          It's totally unfair that she had so many obstacles in her recent past and it's devastating to hear that she was looking forward to making more perfumes and continue to being creative.

          Utterly devastating. This is one of the very few lines I would ever go out of my way to sample. Her passion for life came through in each bottle, and above all, you knew you were experiencing something unique and special.

          My thoughts are with her family and loved ones; how tragic to happen just before Christmas.
