Niche line Mona di Orio will launch two new additions to the Monogram Collection, Suède de Suède and Dõjima. Both were developed by perfumer Fredrik Dalman.
Suède de Suède ~ "Inspired by the memories of our Swedish in-house perfumer Fredrik Dalman, Suède de Suède unveils a perfume that evocatively caresses the skin like soft Swedish gloves. A smooth woody suède accord warms you like the silky backside of a fur. The story is supported by notes of cloudberry, osmanthus, Sichuan pepper, cedarwood and the rich earthiness of patchouli, The fragrance softens with time, lingering down to a warm milky suède note puffed up by precious musk." Additional notes include strawberry leaf and castoreum.
Dõjima ~ "The name derives from the Dōjima Rice Exchange founded by Samurai in 1697 in Osaka, Japan. Let us travel back to this moment in time, have the beauty and serenity of a single rice grain work as your seductive armor. Dõjima turns to powder as it combines with the warmth of the skin and a cloud of rice powder surrounded by jasmin and orris radiates through the day. The soft texture of rice is lifted by a warm powdered amber speckled with dry spices and woods on a creamy musk base." Additional notes include nutmeg, ambrette, clary sage, labdanum and sandalwood.
Mona di Orio Suède de Suède and Dõjima will be €180 each for 75 ml Eau de Parfum.
