My journey with fragrance began in 2017 during the production of the final season of The OA, the critically-acclaimed Netflix series. From the beginning, my goal was to create fragrances unlike anything else on the market. I started sourcing high-quality ingredients worldwide, carefully working with a family of perfumers in Bombay, India.
Every time creator director and executive producer Zal Batmanglij passed by me or pulled a chair next to me during meetings, and he'd always comment on the soothing yet intriguing aroma surrounding me - yes, it was a new formulation of a fragrance oil I was testing out. And it wasn't just Zal; this formulation sparked curiosity among editors, studio executives, and even the most prominent figures on set.
Those with experience in the film industry understand the importance of creating the right atmosphere, as we craft entire universes every detail counts. For me, wearing Mona Lisa during the busy and exciting production process offers a peaceful backdrop, a subliminal element that adds to the ambiance. Every application of this luxury fragrance oil tells a story, much like the cinematic masterpieces we strive to create.
In 2020, I established Mona Lisa Pure to revolutionize the fragrance industry. My collaborations with innovative visionaries motivated me to design a collection of luxury fragrance oils like no other, creating experiences that take you on a journey.
