Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Review

Quick note: I am currently traveling and blogging from the road, and all of my makeup were shipped to my new home ahead of time, except for a few very basic items. Thus, I do not have them on hand to photograph or review. However, I have a box of over 100 perfume samples, so most of my blog posts will be perfume reviews until I am finished with my travel. As perfume samples are very boring to photograph and view, all of the pictures featured are official photos from the manufacturers, unless otherwise noted.

If you like Burberry BodyNarciso Rodriquez for Her, or Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely, then it's very likely that you'll enjoy Elizabeth and James' Nirvana White. Unlike Narciso Rodriguez for Her and Lovely, however, Nirvana White is not as linear, and has more going on for it, in its quiet complexity.


With notes of muguet (lily of the valley), peony, and tender musk, Nirvana White opens with a soft blend of light musk and white woods; although the woodsy note isn't listed in the description, I can easily detect it. Within the same minute, the peony note enters, although in this blend, it smells more like pink rose petals. The muguet note lends a greenness to the blend overall, keeping it from smelling too dense or heavy. 

If I have to quickly sum it up, I would describe this perfume as a very "white" scent, as the name implies -- soft white musk, soft pink and white petals, soft white woods, and just a hint of fresh green to keep it light and airy. Nirvana White really smells how one would imagine floating on a big, white, fluffy cloud is like. It smells like heaven!

Overall, Nirvana White is definitely an upscale, sophisticated perfume that is perfect for day and night. It can be worn during the day with a pair of jeans, and at night with a black cocktail dress.

As it is rosier than Narciso Rodriguez for Her and SJP's Lovely, the perfume is similar to Burberry Body, although it lacks the sensuality that Body has.

At $75 for a 1.7 oz bottle, the perfume is definitely reasonably priced, considering how long-lasting it is. On my dry skin, it lasts for three to five hours, so I can only assume that it lasts even longer on someone whose skin isn't so dry.

Would I purchase a bottle of Elizabeth and James' Nirvana White? Yes, but I probably won't because I prefer my bottle of Burberry Body more, but it is definitely worth a try. You'll probably enjoy it! :o)

    1. It's definitely worth trying! "Nirvana White" is fresh enough to use during the day, but also has enough depth to be used as a nighttime perfume, too. It's so versatile.
