Under Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen’s creative direction, Elizabeth and James introduces two new distinctive fragrances in the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Collection – Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon.

The Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrance collection represents the ultimate state of happiness; an idyllic memory, moment or experience.

“Ashley and I believe everyone’s nirvana is different, so we created Nirvana Rose and Nirvana Bourbon to explore a more sensual and also playful side of Nirvana,” stated Mary-Kate Olsen.

“These two new fragrances are an evolution of Nirvana – bringing light and color into the collection and giving our customer more ways to find their nirvana,” said Ashley Olsen.

Created by Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen in partnership with Firmenich, the fragrances include:

I am a huge fan of the Elizabeth and James fragrances their White and Black line hooked me with gorgeous and unique scents. The two latest fragrances Nirvana Rose and Nirvana Bourbon are fantastic, unique and perfect for Fall and Winter with their warm, earthy scents.

Nirvana Rose starts with an almost boozy rose scents. But the dry down reveals a gorgeous true rose scent with hints of musk, geranium and vetvier spice. A gorgeous warm, earthy scent perfect for crisp fall days, and your favorite sweater.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose – an alluring floral scent embodying the heart of a dark rose with notes of geranium, rose de mai and vetiver.

Nirvana is warm, boozy and a very sensual earthy scent. Vanilla and bourbon are a perfect pair in this scent and the background of tuberose and oakwood mesh to create a smoky, woody scent. Not your average girly scent Nirvana Bourbon is a standout. The warm, sexy scent is perfect for Fall and curling up with your guy by a fire.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon – an oriental scent blending notes of vanilla bourbon with oakwood and hints of tuberose.

The Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon bottles feature new translucent scarlet and amber tones inspired by the fragrances, highlighting the architectural lines, rich gold accents and distinctive texture of the bottles.

I love Fall, the cooler weather, sweaters, pumpkin and gorgeous new makeup colors. Above I am wearing 3 new shades from jane iredale’s Fall line. The beautiful Cindy PureMoist lipstick. It goes on so smooth and feels great on my lips. I love the velvety feel of it and it really lasts for a dark lip color

These go on creamy smooth and last all day, I have had no issues with creasing or fading. The Smooth Affair eye shadows can be used as eye shadow primer or stand alone eye shadow. I love a good multi-tasker!
