I’d heard so much hype about the Elizabeth & James Nirvana scents from bloggers and youtubers, so I knew as soon as I visited Sephora I needed to check it out. Upon first sniff, it was love. I adored both the black and white versions, and afer buying both in rollerball form, and road testing them for a few days, I hot footed it straight back to Sephora and picked up a bottle of the Nirvana White.
Seriously, I love how the bottle looks. The square design with white and gold, and the texture and shape of the bottle look so sleek out on display on my dresser. To me, the bottle design matches in with how I’d describe the scent- sophisticated.
I’m fairly rubbish at describing fragrances, but I’ll give it a go. To me, this scent is really nice and powdery. It’s such a unique scent compared to anything else I’ve tried, it’s so feminine, clean and comforting. It’s a delicate mixture of sweet and musky, but it’s not a heavy fragrance. When I apply it, it lasts for several hours before I need to reapply it.
The only downside to this perfume? Availability. Sadly, its only available in Sephora in the USA, so it’s ridiculously hard for us Irish girls to get our hands on. Unless, you or someone you know is travelling to America, you won’t find it anywhere else, and unfortunately, Sephora won’t ship it to Ireland. It’s also a tad pricey, this 30ml bottle cost me $60 (roughly €54) so it’s definitely on the pricier side of things on the fragrance spectrum.
I just adore this fragrance, if you live in America, or are visiting the States, make sure you pop into a Sephora store and check this out, I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do!
