I really love the ‘Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose’ and ‘Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon’ Eau de Parfum fragrances.  They affordable, ooze elegance and are exquisitely packaged.  They are truly the perfect new fragrance ally on the scene today.  They can also be picked up from your local Sephora store!

I usually come back to the hotel mid-afternoon for a tea and a snack. After I freshen up and grab a shower, I will get ready for my evening out.  I love ‘Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon’ – as it is sophisticated, sexy and alluring.  A small change up from Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose.  ‘Elizabeth and James Bourbon’ will illuminate my change in attire and hairstyle so my evening out with friends or on my own will be just as luxe and dynamic as mornings and afternoons in the city.

The ‘Elizabeth and James Nirvana’ fragrance collection packaging is modern, sleek and most importantly easy to pop into your purse and a suitcase for travel or a weekend away. I love that the ‘Elizabeth and James Nirvana’ fragrance collection looks like a piece of art and that I could find it in a vintage shop.
