Elizabeth and James – a fragrance brand from the multi-talented sisters Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.  Ashley and Mary-Kate wanted the signature fragrance for Elizabeth and James to embody the same sense of duality inherent to their partnership and the brand. The result was not one, but two blends—distinctly different, but undeniably connected.

Nirvana White captivates with a blend of delicate peony, chic muguet, and tender musk for a feminine scent with dark sophistication.

Nirvana Black is an addictive blend of alluring violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.
