Elizabeth and James Nirvana | Black & White Pure Perfume Oil

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White & Black Perfume Oil (1)

Happy Monday, blog fans! I thought we'd start the week off on a fragrant note with Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black & White Pure Perfume Oil. The Nirvana scents have been massively popular, and after testing them, I can certainly see why. Since their original launch in eau de parfum form, the scents have found their way into roll-on, solid, body oil, and oil forms- aka something for everyone. Interested? Read on!


Before we get to the scents, can we just take a moment to appreciate the packaging? All of the products in the Nirvana range have sleek, simple, but modern and elegant packaging, which is continued with the solid black, white, and gold bottles that house the Black & White Pure Perfume Oils. The weighty glass bottles come equipped with glass pipettes which allow for mess-free application.

The scents are simple blends of three main notes, but when combined, creates a much more developed smelling scent. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black combines violet, vanilla, and sandalwood for a feminine scent with a hint of masculine warmth. Elizabeth and James Nirvana White combines peony, muguet, and musk, which creates sexy, floral scent.

Vanilla and violet are two of my favourite notes, so I expected Black to be my choice of these, but White has been the scent I keep coming back to, but, I also like to wear both oils together. When you wear both Black and White you get a really gorgeous combination as the floral note from White amplifies the feminine notes in Black, and the musk from Black adds more warmth and depth to the notes in White.

Overall, I am a major fan of these scents! I love that these are in oil form too, as they're alcohol free, and are that little bit softer for delicate noses. I find these scents last very well on skin when applied to pulse points, but as they're oils, do wear closer to the skin. Have you tried wither of these scents? What's your favourite scent format?
