Nirvana Black by Elizabeth And James Perfume.
Nirvana Black is a sensual and woody fragrance that is dark and subtly masculine, making it suitable for both genders. Relying only on the notes of violet, sandalwood and vanilla there is an undeniable simplicity of ingredients. That simplicity is made complex and interesting by the fine balance that has been created by perfumer Pierre Negrin. The bottle reflects that same simplicity at first glance in its rectangular and thin modern silhouette.
Yet, like the scent it holds, a closer look reveals a complexity of texture, shine and golden details.
Elizabeth and James is a fashion brand launched in 2007 by twins and designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. It is a tribute to their brother and sister who, while being starkly different, create a perfect balance that is the inspiration to their fashions for women. The Nirvana fragrance line was introduced in 2013 and continues to reflect that balance through the creation of Nirvana Black and Nirvana White.
Nirvana Black is White's more indulgent cousin... it smells a bit more like YSL's Black Opium, which I used to wear a lot, and that was back when I smoked, so my sense of smell has shifted. This is a lighter than Opium scent, and I wear a lot less on me, so maybe it lasts longer than I give it cred...
I I've this perfume. Won't change unless it discontinues. However, when I received it the perfume was not in a box. It was wrapped in paper and had TESTER labels on it. Now I'm concerned I didn't receive the full amount. Therefore not worth the price and is deceitful
