    Interesting. A first for them?

    Can’t say I’m a fan, and I’ve yet to be impressed with their brand, but I’m also not a super cool kind-a person ;)
    I think they nailed the name and packaging but we shall have to see on the juice.

      They had fragrances under the Mary Kate and Ashley label in the past, when they were much younger…these are under their Elizabeth & James brand, so not really celebrity perfumes.

      I’m curious if the Elizabeth in this brand name is for their younger sister. Elizabeth Olsen seems to be quite the serious actress and has played some interesting and quirky roles.

      • TheSnailsPajamas says:

        Yes, E & J are their two younger siblings.

    Really like that packaging. They don’t sound mind-blowing, but then again, no cupcakes, pink berries or oud. Definitely worth a try.

    • Robin says:

      Agree…worth a shot.

    • AnnE says:

      Ditto on the nice packaging, and it sounds as if the juice may not be a complete disappointment. Those bottles make me think of Chanel; very classic. Nice job!

    I’ve been very impressed with both their Elizabeth & James and The Row fashion lines. They really do have an eye for quality and style that goes beyond trends. Very curious to see if that translates to fragrances, as well. Nirvana Black sounds definitely worth a sniff.

    Will pass…and the bottles look like fancy Zippos to me.

  5. Marjorie Rose says:

    Hate to sound my age, but it’s hard for me to see “Nirvana” and not have the scent named after Teen Spirit or something!
