Oleanna, Reviews, and...Perfume?

I am a bit of a scent geek.

About seven years ago, I was introduced to Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, and was borderline obsessive about trying different scents for about a year.

Then, over the holidays, I was looking for hand-crafted gifts for friends, and came upon the amazing SaraWen on Etsy. She creates scents inspired by books, including the Sherlock Holmes stories and Lord of the Rings; of course I was all in.

Which got me to thinking. And acting.

Today, I'm excited to share with you the result of my collaboration with Sara!

Sara's scent notes: "Violets, lemon blossom, and rich wood notes hover over the freshness of deep lakes and vast oceans. A light touch of earthy patchouli rounds out this feminine floral and woodsy blend."

I love that description, and it fits the scent to a T.

This scent is not available on Sara's Etsy shop (yet...) but if you'd like a chance to win one of five vials of this fantastic perfume oil, take these simple steps:

  1. Read Oleanna
  2. Between now and March 31, leave a review at Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Goodreads, or LibraryThing (or all of the above, if you're so inclined; note that leaving reviews on multiple sites does not increase your chances of winning, but it does get you my undying affection)
  3. Email to let me know you've left the review, and provide me with your email address (which I will not sell or share)
  4. Get an extra entry if you Tweet that you've reviewed Oleanna (follow me @juliekrose)
  5. Winners will be announced on April 2.
