Take a look at the OLO limited edition bottle. There were only ten of these made! They look the same at first glance but each one is slightly different from the other. The bottoms are engraved with OLO, __ of 10 and the artists signature. Retail price is $275 (includes 9ml perfume of choice). They will be sold at Frances May or ordered directly through OLO.
I was going to release them with a new perfume but changed my mind. Scent is such a personal thing I wanted customers to have a choice. I decided to just sell the custom bottle with the option to select any 9ml bottle of OLO to go with it. Also, this is a piece of art, it's not mobile. It cannot be transported easily so the perfume comes separately, to be poured into the bottle when you get home. And home it shall stay!
Portland glass artist Andy Paiko did an amazing job with these. He's been an acquaintance for a couple of years and I've always admired his work. I've been waiting for the opportunity to commission a piece from him and I've finally gotten the chance. He was able to create what I feel like is a perfect representation of my line, taking something very traditional and pushing the boundaries. Andy has an amazing balance of technical skill and imagination. I am so thrilled to have had the chance to work with him.
When I started OLO, I purposely made the packaging minimal so the perfume stayed affordable. I wanted the focus to be the fragrance. These bottles are a bit of a splurge for me and probably for customers too. This was about making the bottle I've always wanted but would never purchase for myself. It is kind of a gift to myself for working so hard this year!
Speaking of gifts...I will be giving one of these away! Anyone who posts a comment on this blog, sends me an email or likes OLO fragrance on facebook between February 10th-13th will be entered into the drawing. It's just my way of showing customers how much I appreciate their support. I wasn't planning on OLO ever becoming my primary business and I really appreciate all the kind words and encouragement I have received over the past year.
Thanks again to Andy for creating such a beautiful piece of glass art to house OLO perfumes. Thanks to Jason Kinney for taking such great photos! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
