|Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose Parfum Spray at Sephora |
Fragrance Notes: Rose de mai, geranium, vetiver
Style: Confident, refined, seductive
The first Elizabeth and James perfume launched a while back with Nirvana Black and White duo, and this year, the Olsen twins added another duo to their perfume line with Nirvana Rose and Nirvana Bourbon. The bottle design is similar to the original Nirvana perfume, and the perfumes are housed in scarlet (Rose) and amber-colored (Bourbon) see-through dark glass bottles with gold accents. I love the slim, modern, stylish design of these bottles.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose is described as a sultry, refined scent that blends deep rose notes with vetiver and geranium to create a sophisticated perfume. The perfume is housed in a beautiful scarlet-toned bottle with gold accents. On my skin, the perfume opens with deep rose notes which gradually settle down and earthy vetiver notes start to shine through. Within about half an hour, the perfume morphs to a grassy, earthy fragrance with floral rose notes lurking in the background. While I generally delegate rose-based fragrances to the summers, Nirvana Rose with its interesting vetiver twist would work well as an all-year-round perfume. The perfume also has amazing lasting power and stays all day even on my dry skin.
