Elizabeth and James Nirvana White
For me, these perfumes fall into two camps. I either have to have a full bottle or just a rollerball. In the full bottle camp is Black, Bourbon and Rose. In the rollerball camp is Amethyst, French Grey and White. Honestly, they're all nice. It comes down to personal taste.
Today I wore White for the first time. It's simple and pleasant and quite lovely really. I can smell peony at the forefront with a light musk bringing up the rear. Musk and I don't generally play well together but the musk here is gentle enough that it doesn't bother me. I really can't detect the lily-of-the-valley but it's possible that I just can't distinguish between it and the peony.
The thing that I like about all the Elizabeth and James fragrances is that they all have a unisex vibe to them. These particular scents seem to mix with my body chemistry really well. You'd think that their Rose scent might not suit a man but when I wore it, a woman I work with walked by me and told me how nice I smelled. Their scents all have a bit of an edge to them and I appreciate that.
Lasting power varies from poor to good with all of them. White's is good. I put it on this morning and even though it's much lighter 10 hours later, I can still smell it.
Nirvana White doesn't quite appeal to me enough to justify purchasing a full bottle but I am happy with my rollerball and will happily use it until it's completely finished up.

Feminine musky rose
I should begin this review by saying that this was love at first sniff for me.

From the nozzle of the manufacturer's sample, this smelled almost smoky, which made me hesitate to try it, but on the skin it translates to a beautiful musky rose. As far as I know, there are no roses in the notes, but peony does have a tendency to resemble roses, and this is a brilliant example of that!

It is fairly linear, but beautiful all the way. Fresh and floral, with just a touch of sweetness, this just speaks of femininity that is both delicate and strong at the same time. It brings to mind a woman who can be girly and chair a board meeting AND be respected for it, all at once! And when she's done with that, she'll be able to hold her own in her relationships too.

I hesitate to say that Nirvana White is a special fragrance simply because there are no tricks to be had, but it is beautiful. If you love peonies or roses or musky florals, this is worth a try.

I really want a full bottle now!

Longevity: 4-5 hours
Sillage: Strong enough that I catch whiffs of it when I lift my hand.
