Girvin always manages to articulate my feelings about perfume perfectly. Words often fail me which is why I express my take on the world through scent. I'm glad there is someone out there who can explain what I often fail to. I had the chance to meet Mr. Girvin a few months ago and discuss our favorite smells. We both love the heaviness of tree sap, the almost palatable charred air after a bonfire. OLO is an exercise in pinpointing what makes the Pacific Northwest such an amazing place to live. I never thought this little hobby of mine would take my life in such a new direction.
This latest post ranks OLO fragrance with some of the perfumers I admire most. I'm so honored.
