Nest Candles

NEST candles are THE BEST.  And yes, they are worth the price tag.

I used to take trips into Takashimaya in NYC back in the day with my mother, and the first floor had a fresh “Floral Boutique” for flower arrangers, or anyone shopping for live “fashion” decor.  It was…DIVINE.  It smelled like fresh-cut EVERYTHING. It closed some years ago, much to my, and my mother’s chagrin, but I will never forget walking in there and being engulfed with the scent of roses, hyacinth, greenery… It took my breath away each and every time (making me take an ever deeper one to take it all in!) photo photo photo photo

When I first smelled NEST’s “Bamboo” candle, I was immediately reminded of Takashimaya.  And, as is likely obvious, that is a beautify thing!  The scent is described as: “Flowering bamboo is mingled with a variety of white florals, sparkling citrus and fresh green accords.” I LOVE the smell of fresh flowers, and these candles are no joke – I couldn’t begin to enumerate the countless brands I’ve tried, but these take the cake.  

Save for Ralph Lauren’s Holiday candle (UH-MAZING), no one has beaten NEST in my book.  The quality of these candles is remarkable – they fill a large room without being overly cloying, and they last for a good amount of time. 

I love that NEST offers a wide array of scents, as well, and has a user-friendly search page to narrow down the relatively vast selection.  They also show you other products with the same fragrance below the product image to help you snag more of your favorite scent! 🙂

I absolutely love these candles…and whenever my mother gets one (or several) as a gift, I snatch them up as fast as I can, even though they weren’t for me. (Don’t worry, I always check with her first! 😉 )
