NEST Fragrances-2

With summer long gone and the days gradually growing shorter, we’re spending more time indoors and lighting candles to help recreate that golden glow.

Gezellig (our Dutch version of Hygge) is the fine art of getting cozy and comfortable with friends and loved ones, and riding on that theme, we thought this would make an ideal time to stock our living space with a few fragrant NEST Fragrances candles and liquidless diffuser.

NEST Fragrances

Founded by Laura Slatkin, NEST has evolved into a successful company offering a wide variety of home and body fragrances, body creams, liquid soaps, hand lotions and diffusers. There’s dozens of gorgeous scents to choose from. Some of our favourites include Bamboo, Grapefruit, Moroccan Amber and Passiflora.

For those colder nights, we’ve curated a few items that will hopefully inspire you to discover their collection. It’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays.
Limited Edition 10th Anniversary 3-Wick Candle

Limited Edition 10th Anniversary 3-Wick Candles

To honour their 10-year anniversary, NEST recently created 3-wick candles in a limited edition, illustrated glass container for three of their best-selling scents: Bamboo, Grapefruit and Moroccan Amber. Each candle comes in a beautiful matching gift box.

Bamboo is adorned in silver, Grapefruit in gold and Moroccan Amber in copper. All three sport metallic maidenhair ferns flowing all around the glass with a NEST logo at the bottom. We tend to keep our used NEST glassware for filling with mini lights and this one will serve the same purpose this holiday season.

Limited Edition 10th Anniversary 3-Wick Candle

There’s enough wax in these hefty candles for 70-90 hours of burn time. We chose Grapefruit for an uplifting, fresh citrus aroma combined with pink pomelo grapefruit together with lighter notes of Lily of the Valley and Coriander blossom. Opening the box, I immediately smell the grapefruit and the candle’s floral qualities. It’s neither overly sweet nor too citrusy.

If you’re more into florals, Bamboo fuses white flowers, citrus and fresh green accords. As for Moroccan Amber, expect sweet patchouli, heliotrope and a hint of eucalyptus to infuse your space with a rich scent.

Birchwood Pine Classic Candle

Birchwood Pine Classic Candle

Looking to bring the outdoors into your room this winter? Birchwood Pine is a classically-scented blend of white pine, fir balsam and birchwood, fused with amber and rich musk. This candle also comes packed in a sparkly red and gold box containing a starburst-patterned glass container. With this 8.1 oz candle, you’ll get between 50 and 60 hours of burn time.
CAD $56; USD $42; available at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and on Sephora.ca

Birchwood Pine Liquidness Diffuser

Birchwood Pine Liquidness Diffuser™

Why not continue that pine and amber deliciousness into your bathroom or guest bedroom? Last spring, NEST launched this new diffuser to accommodate their innovative ScentStick™ (five are included with the diffuser; each stick releases scent for up to 30 days).

The sleek, open design allows the scent to continuously flow from all angles, rather than just on top as with most diffusers. In addition, the bottom is padded to protect surfaces.

Birchwood Pine Liquidness Diffuser

Start with one or two sticks and add to desired scent strength per room size. The sticks are infused with pure fragrance oil, are biodegradable and compostable, and made from sustainably-sourced paper (five-stick refill packages are priced at USD $34).

In addition to Birchwood Pine, ScentSticks come in Bamboo, Grapefruit, Moroccan Amber, Sicilian Tangerine, Ocean Mist & Sea Salt and Cedar Leaf & Lavender.
CAD $84; USD $60; available at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and on Sephora.ca

Cedar Leaf and Lavender Votive Candle

Cedar Leaf & Lavender Votive Candle

Perfect for smaller spaces or for travel, NEST’s two-ounce votive candles (with an approximate 20-hour burn time) are ideal for stocking stuffers, gift bags or housewarming presents. They come individually boxed or in a variety of gift sets.

We selected Cedar Leaf & Lavender as we’re long-time fans of this sultry combination of rosemary, lavender, sage and cedar leaves combined with a touch of eucalyptus. It’s a gorgeous, relaxing blend perfect for quiet evenings!
CAD $23; USD $16; available at NEST online and at Amazon.ca
