Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon and Nirvana Rose

My love for Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black has been well documented, and I’m also a huge fan of Nirvana White. It’s a bit lighter and more floral, which I love during the spring and summer months. Elizabeth and James just added two new fragrances to their collection and I’m digging both of them.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose and Nirvana Bourbon

Nirvana Bourbon* has notes of vanilla bourbon, oakwood and tuberose. It’s a very sultry and rich scent so it’s just perfect for the colder months, but it’s not quite as strong and rich as Nirvana Black.  If you want something smoky and woody then I say give this one a go.

Nirvana Rose* is more floral with notes of rose de mai, geranium and vetiver. It’s described as a dark rose, and I think that description fits it perfectly! It’s not your typical rose scent like Roses de Chloe, which is very delicate, light and feminine. Nirvana Rose is the darker, more seductive and twisted sister. The Slytherin to your Gryffindor. 10 points to Slytherin Nirvana Rose!

Both fragrances are available exclusively at Sephora.com and will be in all North American Sephora stores on August 19th! It will roll out to more retailers in Spring 2017.

    • I didn’t think I’d like Nirvana Bourbon from the name, but it’s very nice!

  • I don’t think I’ve tried any Elizabeth and Nirvana perfumes before. Packaging of the full size looks gorgeous! Nirvana Bourbon sounds like it would be perfect for Autumn&Winter! x

    • I have a hard time choosing between Nirvana Rose and Bourbon, but I think Rose is my fave just because I love any and all things rose scented and this is a nice twist :)

  • Ho dang, these sound gorgeous. Absolutely looove the bottles too. I have Nirvana White and freaking love it! I wish I could smell these in person! I think i would really like Rose. I love the scent of roses de chloe but definitely think it’s a bit typical, and I’d be more in the market for something a bit more unique!
