Today's edition of the UK Times Online includes a piece by columnist Bethan Cole about Mona di Orio, who spent 15 years working at perfumer Edmond Roudnitska's factory in the south of France:
Her three debut fragrances seem to colour the room in purple, lemon and blush. Lux is like a tart confit of lemon, a vaporous mania of effervescent citrus. Carnation is a blush flush of eroticism, inspired by the boudoir and the intimacy of skin. And Nuit Noire, a homage to Serge Lutens, is a purplish swoon of a scent, redolent of night air and dark spice.
