Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked NY editor Tiffany Yannetta.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana, $95 at Amazon

I collect perfumes like other people collect things of actual importance, and my latest addition is the new Elizabeth and James fragrance Nirvana. It comes in two different different scents: White, which is way too floral for me, and Black, which is the sexiest mix of sandalwood, vanilla, and violet I've ever smelled.

If you identify more with Mary-Kate than Ashley, this one's for you. There's something a bit smoky and dark about it that makes me feel like a French woman in the '60s who maybe drinks too much and has constant bedhead.
