My go to scent Lovestruck by Vera Wang has been almost empty for a few months now, making it crunch time for me to find a new scent. I really enjoy the smell of Lovestuck, but I’ve been itching to find a new scent that is more me, and possibly a signature scent. Is that even possible, are there people out there who are able to find the holy grail of perfume scents that become their trade mark? It would be a dream come true in my mind as I hate smelling and testing perfumes – it hurts my nose after awhile. I just want to find the one that I can repurchase over and over again and never get tired of!
With that being said I’m excited to say that my new perfume, Elizabeth and James – Nirvana Black has me deeply considering using it as a long term scent which has me jumping up and down at the prospect.
The brand Elizabeth and James is part of the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen empire and they have created two perfumes, Nirvana Black and Nirvana White.
Nirvana Black – Violet, sensual sandalwood and rich vanilla. Masculine and feminine balance.
Nirvana White – Peony, chic muguet and tender musk. Feminine
I have fallen in love with Nirvana Black as I’m drawn to more musky scents but both scents are lovely and surprise surprise, they smell amazing when paired together. Coincidence? I highly doubt these two power houses didn’t intent that from the start.
I purchased both scents but got Nirvana Black in the large bottle while I opted to get Nirvana White in the small bottle as I only plan on pairing it with Nirvana Black during the summer months. Nirvana White adds a little sweetness to Nirvana Black which I think is prefect for those summer days I’m craving a softer scent.
This perfume line is available exclusively at Sephora and if you happen to make a stop into there I highly recommend checking out both of these perfumes!
