The whole of Mona Di Orio Santal Nabataea rests on my attempt at recreating the texture and colour of the sandstone that makes this ancient city so unique. It was important for me to make something modern you see and getting this effect right was something I believed would bring the fragrance and the Nabataeans into the 21st century”-Fredrik Dalman
Whenever a new artistic collaboration transpires between Maison Mona Di Orio’s creative director Jeroen Oude Sogtoen and in-house perfumer Fredrik Dalman, we at ÇaFleureBon feel very honored to be able to share the experience with you, dear readers. Much like any creative marriage, mutual understanding unfolds over the fullness of time and it’s thrilling to experience. Their latest perfumed inspiration is an historical and archaeologically significant one, which Jeroen refers to lovingly as “a multi-layered work of glowing olfactive archaeology”: an ancient kingdom sought out by many cultures, well-known to adventurer and author T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia), said to be the place where Moses struck water from stone with his staff, and the burial place of his brother Aaron (Moses’ mouthpiece, as he did not suffer from the halting speech which bedeviled his older brother). This is the legendary Nabataea of Mona Di Orio Santal Nabataea.
