I'm not a girl who was raised by a mother who loved fragrances. Having a sensitive nose, my mother's stomach churned at the hint of anything floral, so my tastes have been heavily influenced by that. So when I saw that the first note of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's Elizabeth and James Nirvana White ($22-$75) is peony, I literally turned my nose up . . . until I actually spritzed it on. The peony mingles with notes of muguet and musk to create a fragrance that is both tenderly feminine and mysteriously sophisticated. And you can wear it all day. Spray it on before throwing on your sweaterdress for Sunday brunch, and then add another layer before slipping into your skimpy date-night attire. Some perfumes can be a dime a dozen, but Nirvana White is one I'll be wearing for years to come.
