Hey there lovers of extraordinary fragrance,
Oliver & Co seems like a house that flies under the radar. I don’t understand it. The perfumes are interesting, challenging and bizarre but most of all totally wearable. To anyone passing you in the street you’d just smell awesome. It’s the detail, the fragrant stories, the unusual juxtaposition of ingredients and stellar longevity that all make them so buyable to me.
Oliver & Co Stand Alone Store Opens
Introducing the first-ever Oliver & Co. retail store: Madrid
This is really exciting news. I’m so happy for Oliver Valverde and wish him enormous success with his newest venture. Imagine dropping in and conversing fragrance with a perfumer and further, the creator of his own house. It makes me want to pop down while in Europe in April/May. Since I first tried the Oliver & Co range it has stood out to me as something special.
Edited from the Oliver & Co Press Release: According to the ancient alchemical tradition, the number seven stands for a full cycle. Seven years after launching its first fragrances, Oliver & Co. writes a new chapter of its story with the opening of the brand’s first flagship store in Madrid. Oliver’s background as a DJ and a sound engineer has been transposed to the stores ambience of dark electro music venues. The final result is an atmosphere, somewhere between a techno club and a moonlit garden.
Oliver Valverde is a self-taught fragrance designer, and he followed the same intuitive philosophy to design this space with the collaboration of his friend, the interior designer Nacho Amago. No rules is the best rule. In a time when perfumery is lost in an ocean of indistinguishable, identical references, Oliver & Co.’s store opens its doors to the public and dives into the contradictions that fuel the brand: mystery and transparency, distance and closeness, light and darkness. Pure alchemy.
Another important thing is that Oliver will be there attending customers. Imagine spending a couple of hours learning his fragrances and talking to the creator about why he made those choices. It would be a personal Master Class.
