You know those places you instantly feel a deep connection with? Spartan is that for me. I have been shopping their goods online for years, and a trip to the storefront in Austin is at the top of my must-visit list. They offer a carefully curated collection of beautiful, practical objects that celebrate craft and great design, and the daily pleasure they bring. The owner, Currie Person, is one of the most genuine, humble and beautiful souls I've met. She also has sister stores Beam & Anchor (Portland) and Voyager (San Francisco).
I'm thrilled to announce the Spartan by Olo fragrance, available exclusively today. I've been wearing it all week and cannot get enough of its delicate yet smokey scent. Inspired by the Texas landscape, the sweet notes of tequila, lime and cilantro mingles with notes of rhododendron, cactus flower and yellow rose. As the scent settles, it dries down to sage, hay, Mexican linaloe, ponderosa pine and Ashe juniper (Texas cedar), all native plants of the area. There's a hint of leather, too!
The good news is we are giving away the fragrance to TWO lucky winners. Also, if you use the code pennyweight—today only—you'll receive free shipping at checkout. I know it can be risky shopping for fragrances online, but take my word that this is one you don't want to miss. It's great for both men and women, and makes a perfect gift.
Enter to win by visiting the Spartan website and leaving a comment below. Winners will be chosen on Monday, October 28. Also, if you're in the Austin area... stop by the fragrance launch party tonight from 5-8 pm to meet the makers!
UPDATE: Congratulations to Cally and Liv, the two winners. Thanks to all who entered! This giveaway is now closed.
