Fragrance Find - Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon

For the past few years, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have been killing it in the perfume game with their Elizabeth and James Nirvana collections and companion fragranced products.

Originally launched with Nirvana Black and Nirvana White, they have just released two new Nirvana versions: Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose.  Today I'll share details about Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon. This scent is seductive and sexy but still possess a freshness and femininity that makes it wearable for day or night. 

Bourbon  blends vanilla bourbon, oakwood, and a hint of tuberose for a oriental-woody scent along with a new transparent amber colored bottle in a similar shape to the original Nirvana bottles,  with the rich gold accents that I love.

The opening of this scent was amazing and probably now my favorite in the Nirvana line. Rich, slightly sweet (this is NOT Cake Vanilla!) and warm, but with a woodiness that lasts right throughout the dry down.  As it developed on me during the day, I picked up some of the rose, then dried fruit. With the dry down, more vanilla and oak, but with a slight smoky touch. Nirvana Bourbon has a slightly masculine edge to it, so I also see this working on many men as well.

As with the original Black and White fragrances, this can be layered.  My personal favorite mix is Nirvana Bourbon and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black, but it also mixes well and picks up more of the rose notes on my skin when I mixed it with Elizabeth and James Nirvana White 

The silage and lasting power were above average (7+ hours before a touch up) and the projection as well.   This will be heaven in the Fall and cooler months, but it will still work in summer as it never warmed up too much or became too sweet.

Since they've added additional fragranced products to their original line, I am looking forward to the fragrance extensions with Nirvana Bourbon - dry shampoo, hand cream - and hopefully bath/shower products and more! 

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon comes in two sizes of the stunning bottle (shown, above) and a roller ball as well. - RLB
