Fragrance Find - Elizabeth and James Nirvana Amethyst

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Amethyst  Eau de Parfum Spray

I've been in love with the Elizabeth and James Nirvana collection of fragrances ever since they launched a few years ago.

Their newest addition to the collection, Elizabeth and James Nirvana Amethyst  Eau de Parfum Spray is another winner for me.  The bottle is still the iconic, Nirvana textured slim rectangular gold trimmed glass bottles with a jewel tone, this time colored purple to match the Amethyst in the name.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Amethyst  Eau de Parfum Spray takes on the tobacco note that was in another recent launch, Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon  (which I also really like), but softens it with a slightly sweet honeysuckle and crisp, warm cedar.

The initial Nirvana Amethyst notes with my first spray were a sweet smokiness with just a touch of floral from the honeysuckle.  It felt soft, creamy and velvety, and the sweetness stayed balanced throught the day.  The longevity on me was very good - at least 6+ hours after applying int he morning.  The dry down stayed velvety, but became slightly crisper with the cedar, and a touch of the smoky tobacco to give it a sexy, intoxicating blend.

I find Elizabeth and James Nirvana Amethyst to be perfect for day or night when you want a sophisticated scent that still has some sensuality to it, and a scent which can be worn in the summer, but also the cooler Fall weather.

While less intense than Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon I would describe Nirvana Amethyst as it's lighter, slightly powdery "cousin". If you love Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon Elizabeth and James Nirvana Amethyst  is perfect to combine with it create a truly exotic, long wearing, warm spicy scent.  

It's also available for travel or day time touch ups in the Nirvana Amethyst Rollerball - RLB
