Giveaway: Olivine Atelier

I hope your 2014 is off to a marvelous start, Foxies! Mine was….well, off to an awkward start. I won’t go in to major details, but the coach house I was so looking forward to making my new home turned out to be run by an unhinged slumlord and after a traumatic packing/unpacking/repacking situation, all of my things are in storage and I’m waiting to make my next move. But, just as the old adage goes, when one door closes (literally, in this instance), other beautiful ones open. Professionally, 2014 has already been wonderful. One reason…?

Learn About Olivine Atelier

Enter, Olivine Atelier. I’ve long been enchanted by the design of the fragrances, but it wasn’t until I met the sparkling owner, Julie Wray, that I knew I wanted to work with them. I took Olivine on as one of my clients in 2014. As you may know, I do brand strategy for ethical companies (vegan, cruelty-free, etc) and I am so pleased to be working with one that is not only all of those things, but makes such irresistibly beautiful things.

There are five intoxicating perfumes in the Olivine family of fragrance (with the greatest names EVER) and my personal favorite (at least these days) is “Amongst the Waves.” With -10 windchill in Chicago, it’s a welcome retreat to smell my wrist and be transported to a day of warm breezes. The blend is coconut and floral. Soft, non-cloying, endlessly elegant, and in a bottle (with an old-school puff atomizer) so crazy vintage gorgeous, you’re going to want to get a vanity just to display it.

Perfume always makes me feel finished. Does that make sense? My grandmother who is 103 years old and as vital as anyone could ever dream of being at that age, always wears perfume (Clinique’s Aromatics Elixir, to be exact). Every warm hug from her has a fragrance story. It’s the crowning touch to her morning ritual and perhaps I’ve taken that on. Like many women, I simply don’t feel done unless I’ve put perfume behind my ears and wrists. Perfume truly is about creating and conjuring memory, and I love the stories that Olivine’s small-batch fragrances tell.

Olivine doesn’t just make damn beautiful perfumes that are beloved by big media outlets like NYLON, Refinery29, and Redbook. There are shimmery lip glosses, darling pencils with fun affirmations to make the SATs breeze by, and this lotion, which tells you with every pump that you. are. beautiful. Damn skippy! And every purchase of Olivine benefits Every Mother Counts’ life-saving work at home and abroad. Why? Because being kind and feeling beautiful are one in the same, darlings.

I wanted to give you guys a chance to experience this luxe lotion for yourselves. It’s creamy, infused with good-for-you oils and extracts (hello, aloe, green tea, lavender, olive oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, just to name a few), and smells divine. And the bottle is one that you will keep forever after the lotion has gone. A gorgeous reminder to love yourself.

Naturally, I’m a huge fan of Olivine. I don’t work with companies that I don’t believe in, and I personally sought out Olivine because they impressed me big time. Their commitment to making vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, glamourous perfumes and beauty rituals is inspiring. And every perfume comes with a glitter-dipped feather – a sign of freedom and adventure. And don’t worry about that. Each feather is naturally fallen and hand-collected by Julie at a local bird sanctuary. In other words? No birds harmed to bring you that lovely token.

    I would love to try this product!

  • Janice

    Oh! I would definitely get the Among the Waves scent!! I’ve been wanting to try her scents for forever!

  • Cheri Werner

    Would love to win this!

  • Carrie Ahonen

    I would choose More than the Stars because I love musk and Sandalwood scents. And, my mom always says “I love you more than all the stars in the sky.”

    All their scents look amazing! I can’t pick just one!

    First, I’m SO sorry about your landlord. That place looked adorable and I’m bummed for you. I’m glad you found out early on (relatively) at least. I hope this means something awesome is coming your way, though!

    Coconut-smelling stuff is the best. The atomizer bottles look beautiful!

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! I would love to try the “Amongst The Waves” perfume!

  • Kelly Lynn

    I am going to choose Amongst the Waves because I have always gravitated towards beachy sweet essential oils. I used to wear Chanel when I could afford it and in the description on your site, it sounds like there is a bit of that Chanel vibe immersed in. I love the scent of being at a beach – even the lotions on people’s skin. So I think this one would be perfect & my fiance would certainly love it (0:

  • Ash

    Even though I live in sunny Southern California, I can never get enough of the ocean, so I would definitely choose Amongst the Waves.

  • http://gravatar.com/gaiantlc Terri Cole

    I would pick More Than The Stars. It sounds perfect!

  • Erin Noel Grennan

    Never heard of these products – thanks for letting us know about them!

  • Sarah

    mmm amongst the waves. I used to love everything sea- like growing up

  • Carrie D.

    “Amongst the Waves” sounds wonderful – I love the idea of the ocean, coconuts, and florals together. Believe it or not, my favorite scent growing up was the smell of Coty Airspun face powder. Sounds crazy, but it’s what my great-grandmother wore and the scent still makes me feel warm and protected.

  • http://www.SamosaPOP.com Jalpa

    Awesome post and thanks for doing this giveaway. I would pick ‘She belongs there’. And I loved tropical fragrances growing up, it made me feel like I am on a vacation. :)

  • Cyndall

    I LOVE everything you stand by Ashlee Piper! And, i KNOW I am going to fall in love with the Olivine products!

  • http://www.sweetpotatosoul.com Jenné @ Sweet Potato Soul

    First of all, you’re Nonna looks fantastic! I can’t believe she’s 103. So cool!
    Speaking of grandmas, my Nana’s favorite scent is White Linen :) I never really had a favorite growing up. If I had my pick of the Olivine scents I’d love the Amongst the Waves. That name!

  • clairesuellentrop

    I was gonna for Amongst the Waves as my favorite, but She Belongs There might just beat it out. Both sound lovely. Oof.

  • Laura

    Wow, what beautiful looking and sounding products!

  • http://www.amypalko.com Amy Palko

    I adore Oxley. In fact my new bottle of Oxley perfume oil just arrived today!! And, I have to add, that I received 3 wolf whistles in one block. Considering it’s January in Scotland and I was wearing my big cosy jacket, that’s kind of a record. I’m blaming the perfume…..

  • Mia

    Whaaa…a top note of black coconut!?!…I MUST try Amongst The Waves!

  • Jillian

    Everything sounds amazing! I’d probably try among the waves!
    When I was a child my mother wore Chanel Number 19 so that was probably my favorite scent when I was younger!

  • http://www.thehungrygypsy.com Katie

    I would choose Full Regalia! Not only does it hit some of my favorite scent notes (vanilla, musk, patchouli) but the story is fantastic. I love the concept of it being about knowing who you are, and as an equestrian, I love the race horse connection!

  • http://www.thehungrygypsy.com Katie

    I would choose Full Regalia. Not only does it hit some of my favorite scent notes (vanilla, musk, patchouli), but I also love the concept of it being about knowing who you are. Plus, as an equestrian, I love the race horse connection!

  • Meredith

    Full Regalia sounds amazing.

  • Rachel

    Ohh these will be such lovely gifts for my friends’ birthdays!

  • Janice

    I would go with Among the Waves- I’m having a moment for everything mermaid-y.

  • http://www.theveganstylista.com Bonnielee Cuevas | The Vegan Stylista

    Congrats on the amazing new client and when one door closes another opens!!! Happy to see a fellow vegan expert reach much success! xoxo

  • Bridget Avalos

    I think Full Regalia would suit me best, but Amongst the Waves is a close second. :)

  • http://www.tothemotherhood.com HilLesha

    I’d choose the Amongst The Waves. It sounds like it perfectly captures the essence of being on the beach, and I love scents like that. I have also always loved the smell of roses.

  • Hannah Ballou

    I would pick oxley because it includes all my favorite scents. When i was growing up we had a jasmine bush growing outside the window. In the summer we would open the windows and the flowers would make our house smell amazing.
