Shop Visit: Milk Milk Lemonade



Located in lower SE Belmont, Milk Milk Lemonade is the tongue-in-cheek moniker of the OLO Fragrance flagship shop and outpost for an array of clever, thoughtfully chosen wares. Meticulously curated to compliment the full OLO line, you’ll also find skincare, art objects, magazines, jewelry, feminist accoutrements and accessories that perfectly represent co-owner and self-taught perfumer Heather Sielaff’s wit and keen eye.





I had the occasion to spend a few hours at Milk Milk Lemonade during a special artist workshop in December and felt so cozy, at home, and inspired by the bright art and plant-filled space. After accepting some divine tea in a lovely ceramic mug, I chatted with Heather and Jonathan Sielaff, perused all the goodies and, honestly, kind of wanted to stay forever.




Not only does Milk Milk Lemonade carry the entire line of heavenly OLO Fragrance, they have items not available on the OLO website, including: room sprays, incense, body oil, facial serums, floral waters, bar soaps, mood lifters, and so much more. After picking up a bottle of Valens to join my already treasured bottle of Cedar + Rose, I’ve added OLO’s Violet / Leather to my must-purchase list with just about everything else Heather has cooked up.




Adding to my must-purchase list, and being the natural skincare addict I am, I am coveting MML’s selection of Binchotan charcoal soaps and face puffs, Sasawashi scrub mitts, and Jao moisturizers. I can’t help but imagine stocking up on more OLO goodness, those scrub mitts, a locally made Cocanu chocolate bar, a copy of The Gentlewoman, and staying in for what I am convinced would be the best evening of self-care I could indulge in. Other items of note include ‘boob’ print textiles from Gravel & Gold, jewelry from Better Late Than Never, Hazel Cox & Ming Yu Wang, silk embroidered Thank You shopping bags, and stunning hand-thrown porcelain vessels from Lillith Rockett. Milk Milk Lemonade is definitely an amazing place to pick up dreamy gifts for friends and loved ones!





Milk Milk Lemonade is located at 1407 SE Belmont Street in Portland and they are open Thursday through Saturday from 11AM to 6PM and Sundays from 11AM to 4PM. You can also shop OLO Fragrance online for an abbreviated selection. Follow @milkmilklemonade on Instagram and @olofragrance on Instagram to keep up on new items and fun events.
