Elizabeth and James Nirvana White

As a girl growing up in the 90's, I was hugely influenced by the iconic twin sisters that are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I used to watch Two of a Kind on Nickelodeon, I was obsessed with all Mary-Kate and Ashley movies; It Takes Two was regularly rented out from our local movie rental place, and I even had an Olsen Twin inspired wardrobe that looked like it came straight out of their movie, Passport to Paris.

I've been following their careers as long as I can remember, from television, to high fashion, I feel like I grew up with these girls. When I read online that they were releasing exclusive fragrances within their Elizabeth and James line I was super excited and added these perfumes to my wish list. 





I was given Nirvana White as a gift from my flatmate after she got back from The States and I was so grateful to receive such a wonderful gift. The textured bottle is sleek and very different to anything else in my collection. The white and gold packaging is chic and modern yet the bottles design reminds me of vintage perfume bottles from the 1920's. 

The fragrance within is a crisp, clean and sophisticated scent with notes of Peony, Lily of the Valley and Musk. I am terrible at describing scents and picking out certain notes but this is floral perfume that I love. It has taken over from my beloved Marc Jacobs Daisy as my Daily fragrance since I received it and it is a fragrance that lasts all day. 

 I really want to get my hands on the Nirvana Black perfume but as it is a Sephora exclusive in The US and Canada for now, I shall have to wait until it becomes available in the UK.
