I suppose I'm a bit late to the party on this one.... Everyone seemed to love Elizabeth & James Nirvana perfumes when they came out last year, but I was underwhelmed. Despite this, I still picked up this little sampler through a Sephora promo code, and I'm suddenly loving a mix of both scents for a wintry, yet fresh floral.
I have to admit that when these first launched, I was pretty excited given my childhood love for Mary Kate & Ashley and my growing interest in their fashion endeavors. I sniffed the scents at my first opportunity, and was surprised that Nirvana White reminded me of a high school favorite, Estee Lauder Beautiful Sheer. By itself, I find it to be a bit too sweet - something I never thought I'd hear myself say - but blended with Nirvana Black, a warm sandalwood, the scent hits a perfect balance of rich and sweet for me.
If you haven't had a chance to try these scents, the promo code VIBNIRVANA is still available at Sephora.com. They're pretty decent sample sizes, and at the rate I use perfume, I think these will last me quite a long time! I also appreciate that Sephora has a variety of sizes available for purchase, and even offers these as point perks every once in a while.
Have you tried Elizabeth & James Nirvana White or Nirvana Black? How did you like them? I'd love to know! :)
