Elizabeth and James Nirvana White and Black

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White and Black on Belle Belle Beauty

After having my eye on Nirvana Black since the launch, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered one of the sleek square bottles. And now I wish I had done so earlier! The scent is decidedly “me”. The notes are my familiar masculine favorites: Sandalwood and Vanilla. But the addition of Violet makes it just slightly more feminine.

At this point, I had drank the Kool-Aid that designers Ashley and Mary-Kate had developed for Elizabeth and James and had to order the ying to Nirvana Black’s yang. Nirvana White has notes that I am usually not drawn to. But I knew the blend was connected to Black’s so I had a feeling I would love it. The peony, muguet, and tender musk make for a much more feminine scent but still very sophisticated. I love it for this time of year and can envision it being perfect for sultry summer days.

And if you think I wasn’t already all in for these fragrances, I picked up the Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo too. While I love my Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo, it adds a significant amount of texture and I feel like a wash is mandatory the next day. Nirvana Black Dry Shampoo is a little different – I don’t get the stiffness or texture, but I do still get clean, great smelling hair with movement. Plus it gives a nice dose of volume.

Available at Sephora and Nordstrom.
