Mahaut Mondino was born in Paris, into the art world; her father being an acclaimed photographer, and mother a stylist. When starting to take music seriously in her teens, the international brand L’Orèal was one of the first major entities to commission her to make original music for their perfume brand Cacharel. A few compositions later, fashion house Yves Saint Laurent and the global Mama Shelter Hotel chain asked Mondino to create music for their brands as well.
