Good not great
I'm bad at writing perfume reviews. It smells good, I wear it all the time but I would not get another sample or a full size. Just not a perfect match for me.

Love!
I genuinely love this scent. It’s going on my holiday list. The musky and spice smell is amazing, it’s like it enhances you’re natural scent. And it’s long lasting.

Too strong to wear daily. I would say it’s a good one for night time use, I.e. going out to dinner or an event, etc.

I get more compliments on this perfume than any other perfume I have. It last all day (2 sprays). Its not a old woman smell, yet you wouldnt smell it on a young teeny bopper. Perfect for someone in their 30s.

We got our first fragrance today!
I love this scent! It is a sensual and earthy scent - I DO wish it would last longer on my skin but it is often hit and miss, I do find that if I layer it lasts better. I'll definitely be purchasing a full size of this. We also got a nice surprise and received a welcome gift by way of a body scrub. Nice touch! My niece loved it, as I nor my daughter can really use bath products. Only lotions, creams and perfumes.

Never Received the shipment
I cannot write a thorough review on this fragrance as I never received last month’s subscription. I’ve sent multiple emails in regards to this but aside from the automated customer service email confirming that my inquiry was received, NO ONE from the scentbird customer service team has followed up with me (it has been over a week since I sent my 1st email). I find this truly sad, as the concept and service Scentbird is selling to folks is a good one— but their lack of efficient and thorough follow up with their customers is non-existent and ruining their customer relationship. I will certainly make sure to tell folks to STAY AWAY and save their money for companies that truly care about their customers.

Musky and androgynous
I am giving this one five stars, even though it starts out a little pungent. I don't know if I could expect more out of a perfume. Long-lasting and delicious, the best part of my day is when I catch a whiff of myself. OK, that's overstating it, but I really, REALLY love this one!

Very strong, reminds me of a grandmother
I had read such great things about the Elizabeth and James perfumes and decided to go with Black first because I like less floral and somewhat stronger scents like Armani Si and Black Opium. This one is overpowering and much too musky for me. It smells so much like a grandmother that I don't think I'll ever wear it again. Bummer that this was my first scent from Scentbird.

Such a hyped product, but not for me
I chose this as my first month's fragrance because I have heard everyone RAVING about it, but I do not understand why. I'm 25 years old and I feel like this perfume makes me smell like I am 60 years old (not that there is anything wrong with that age, I just want to remain youthful!) It's an extremely potent musky smell that lasts maybe 30 minutes on me.

Where did it go?
I had never smelled this fragrance before my subscription with Scentbird. The scent is rather plain, kind of sweet, musky, and boozy...but nothing special (in my opinion). The staying power is that of only minutes, and the projection is minimal to none whatsoever. I sprayed the product on my bare skin and also on my clothing, for a total of 5 sprays. Nothing exciting at all about this perfume.

Very soft and feminine
This scent has been my daily for the past couple weeks. It is soft, powdery and clean with a subtle warmth and a hint of spice. Not overwhelming at all and I can still smell it after a 12hr shift. I only give it 4 stars because I feel it is very similar to a lot of other scents and not very unique. With my chemistry it falls in the same category as Cashmere Mist.

Dark and rich
I really like this perfume and it smells unique, dark, and yet still feminine. I’d put it in the same camp as Tom Ford’s darker scents like Black Orchid and Tobacco Vanille but this isn’t quite as rich or complex. It’s still good though and affordable for a bottle. A little goes a long way, too. It reminds me of tobacco, bourbon, vanilla, and wood.

Warm and spicy, but doesn't last
I love a good sandalwood, and Nirvana Black doesn't disappoint. But I would never buy a full bottle at full price. For how deep and warm it is, you'd expect it to last longer (usually base notes like sandalwood stick around). But on me it's very faint after a couple of hours and then completely gone before lunch.

Too Old For Me
I picked this one based on reviews and I cannot say I’m unhappy with the choice and will use it but feel it’s even a little too old for me. It’s a warm musky scent something maybe my own mother or grandmother would wear. So not something I will select again.

Absolutely amazing
From the moment when i first tried this scent, I knew I was going to love it. The fragrence is very soft and lasts for a decent length of time! I move around a lot in my feild of work, and yet the scent remained. I would typically wear this particular fragrence in the evening, to a evening dinner date or elegant gathering, but it is also a fragrence that can be worn at anytime of the day. Whatever tickles your fancy! I would definitely recommend this fragrence to future Scentbird customers!

It’s alright
This scent lasts about 3-4 hours. The initial spray is very strong but settles into a nice vanilla scent that’s very nice. I’m 28 and work in an office and everyone seemed to like it. Wasn’t my favorite but it’s good for a date night maybe

Warm and sweet scent
At first I did not like this scent, it was too masculine, but when I put it on and got used to it I loved it! It has a very warm and rich smell but it isn't overpowering. To me it's definitely a fall scent and I'm looking forward to wearing it for the next few months.

Unique in a good way!
This was definitely different than I expected it to be. I thought I was going to get a perfume that was a fresher brighter scent and I would describe this as a darker and deeper scent. I think this would be perfect for the fall/winter time with the smell being primarily Vanilla with a splash of floral. Overall I really like it!

Nice scent but not for me
Smells way more "mature" than I was hoping, but ideally looking for a great base perfume to add my essential oils on top of. So I will definitely get my use out of it, the muskiness does compliment my amber, patchouli, and clove oils well. Need something a tad sweeter than maybe I had originally thought.

Lovely and Long Lasting
I think this is a great every day scent. Some people say it faded too fast and others said it was too potent. I spray twice on my body before clothing and it seems to have a nice light scent all day. I consider this my every day scent, as I normally prefer woodier, muskier scents for nights out or special occasions. Everyone's body chemistry will make perfume smell different on them, so I guess take that into consideration based on what you normally wear.

VERY SEXY!!!
I absolutely love this perfume it’s very sexy and sultry there’s a strong note that’s evident but I don’t know what it is maybe vanilla 🤔 but it’s musky it’s sweet its not strong but is VERY bold when you first spray it but the pleasant scent makes up for it...that’s why I gave this FOUR stars after an hour or two the smell TOTALLY FADES and you have to reapply it 😡 I don’t mind that but if I’m paying $90 buck for the big bottle of this I want staying power....I didn’t choose this perfume so I’m not quite sure what is in it but it would be FANTASTIC for a “FIRST” date or I even wear it to the gym people ok!!! I’m one of those people that will wear ANY perfume no matter what time of year 🤷🏻‍♀️ Unless it smells like tanning lotion or something like that then I’ll save that for spring/summer months... but I highly recommend this scent I absolutely LOVE it and ive never even heard of it before I will definitely be purchasing the BIG bottle of this!!!!

Perfect for Fall
This scent kind of reminds me of a cashmere sweater. It is warm and cozy; perfect for those cold Fall days. I will most likely purchase a full size when the season comes around. However, it is a very strong scent so I recommend putting only one spray on, anything more would be too much.

Not for me.
This really wasn’t the perfume for me. When I first put it on it was way too woody smelling for me. It gave me a strong old lady vibe, too mature of a smell. After it faded for a couple of hours, it had a nice, soft subtle scent. It’s just too bad it didn’t smell like that the whole time.

The sandalwood is very strong in this for me. Once the perfume settles after an hour or so the vanilla stands out more, and it is much more enjoyable for me. My boyfriend likes it so I will use occasionally.

When I first sniffed the bottle before spraying, I was disappointed because it had an Old Lady type smell to it. But as soon as I sprayed it, the scent changed and it was totally intoxicating and delicious. Not a lot of staying power; by noon I couldn’t smell it anymore.

Bold and Daring
First impression mirrored other reviews - bold, daring, for the mature woman. The vanilla undertone had my attention. This would be more of a fall/winter scent or a partner for a formal event as its sexy. My 3 star rating is that even though it's a eau de parfume, still didn't last long and in it's own right it's a mixure of masculine and feminine wear. I dont see this being first go to but it's in my collection of formal/date night scents, definitely not a casual, every day scent for me.

Not my cup of tea, but nice
I received both the black and white fragrances for this brand. The black is nice, not overpowering at all, but seemed to wear quickly. While another review states this is not your grandmothers perfume...and this is true, i personally thought this more suited for teens or the under 23's because of the subtle scent, and having a daughter in this age demographic, she loved it.

Warm and grown-up, but not your grandma's perfume
This was my first scent after re-subscribing to scentbird, and it made me glad I did. I'd read so many reviews, but it wasn't what i was expecting based on them. On me, nirvana black smells mostly like straight up vanilla, but you can tell it's tempered with other scents that make the vanilla softer and more inviting; not like you just rubbed some vanilla extract on your neck. I ordered this in summer, but it's really a fall/winter scent in my opinion. It's a cozy, comforting scent, long-lasting and strong enough that you can still smell it on yourself at the end of the day. It's not my absolute favorite, I tend to prefer more complex fragrances, but I'm still giving it 4 stars because it is a good, solid, enjoyable scent with excellent staying power that i think a lot of people would enjoy.
