Perfume Review: Mona Di Orio Violette Fumée Eau de Parfum


A violet scent like no other… Oh how do I find words for this masterpiece? I find myself seduced by this one. The top notes are both heady and fresh, a velvet blanket of purple powder, trimmed with bergamot and lavender and padded with rose, incense, and opopanax. It lingers soft and veiled, before settling into a soft cloud of smoke. It’s magic!

Mona di Orio Violette Fumée was created for Jeroen Oude Sogtoen and is inspired by his  favourite childhood memories, experiences, songs, his favourite colour and favourite movie – Endochine, in particular, the opening scene.  An elegant movie that starts on a romantic and poetic note, yet ends quite bitter. Much like Violette Fumée,  a transition from light to dark.
