OLO just got a beautiful write up on Indieperfumes. Lucy, the voice of Indieperfumes, discovered OLO at Bird in Brooklyn. She ordered samples online of the perfumes currently unavailable there. I had actually just stumbled upon her blog around the same time and was preparing to send her samples before we made contact. That's been happening quite a bit lately!
Her thoughts on OLO are right on. She was really able to articulate what I try to express in my fragrances. She captured my process and intention more accurately than anyone yet! Words fail me more often than not, which is why I make perfume instead!
I am going to spend some time going through the posts of indieperfumes and trying some scents that Lucy may speak highly of. I am somewhat oblivious to what's going on in perfumery. Part of that is intentional, I don't want to be influenced by what other people are doing. I want OLO to be 100% true to me and my real life experience. That being said, there are some amazing independent perfumers being brought to my attention that should not be ignored!
I need to be more open to experience other perfumers take on life.
Thanks again to Lucy for taking the time to make us aware of the little perfumer's out there that we may never have had the chance to experience otherwise.
