Let’s face it: when it comes to fragrance, what makes you feel like a goddess may make another feel not so dandy.

Over a two year process, founders of Elizabeth and James, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, wanted to explore the idea of experiencing fragrance nirvana. Realising that everyone’s idea of nirvana is different, the result was not one but two fragrances…

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is both sophisticated and captivating and perfect for daytime. At first, this fragrance bursts open with the floral top note of peony rose before muguet – also known as lily of the valley – shines through. Soon, the scent is grounded by a charming hint of musk.

The yin to yang is Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black and it’s what you imagine; the warmer, richer of the two. Infused with enticing violet, sultry sandalwood and lavishing vanilla, Black strikes the ultimate balance between femininity and masculinity, uptown and downtown. If you aren’t a fan of summery, fruity or girlie scents and consider yourself to be bold, assertive and confident, this fragrance with edgy undertones could be for you.

The simple, architectural bottle design – inspired by a vintage cigarette case – will look perfect either on your dressing table or in your handbag.

And, while one might consider the two Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrances to be polar opposites, one similarity is for sure: each are completely and utterly addictive.
