Review – Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black and White Perfume

17 Jan

I was lucky enough to get the last samples from my local Sephora of these cute perfumes.

If you are not familiar, Elizabeth & James is the fashion company owned by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  Yes, THOSE Olsens.

YOU GOT IT, DUDE!

Anyway, I have been very eager to try these scents.  As I predicted, I liked the Nirvana Black much more than the White.  The White is too floral for me and makes me think of my Grandma.  The Nirvana Black smells like a sexy candle, in a good way.  I really like it – but I am not going to be purchasing it.  The reason for this is that it has no staying power on me.  After about 3 hours its completely gone, and I even made other people smell me -FOR SCIENCE!  For $70 for a 1.7oz bottle, I want staying power.

I really wish it worked for me.  I love the smell and the packaging, but its sadly a disappointment.  Maybe your body chemistry will work better with it, but make sure you go get a sample first.  Sephora makes samples of ANY of their perfumes.  Super handy as all perfumes smell different on different people.

Guilty Pleasure? New perfume for 2014 by the Olsen Twins

3 Jan

I don’t know what is wrong with me but I REALLY want to check out the new perfume from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s company Elizabeth and James.  There are two “twin” fragrances- Nirvana White and Nirvana Black.  White has notes of Peony, Muguet, Tender Musk whereas Black has notes of Violet, Sandalwood, Vanilla.  They each stand on their own or can be worn together.

They hit Sephora stores January 14 and retail for $75.
