Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume
Elizabeth & James is a fashion brand ran by the Olsen Twins who over the years oddly enough, went from sitcom babies to grown-up style icons. So, even though Mary-Kate and Ashley are celebs, this is a perfume related to their clothing brand so it’s a designer perfume (even the fashion brand Elizabeth & James goes out of their way to NOT mention the twins).
