This is one of those candles. I am lucky enough to get sent a LOT of candles and this was another of those gifts. Nest Fragrances is a New York candle brand. When I Instagramed it (is that a verb now?), an American friend was like “Oh my GOD, I didn’t know you could get that brand here, where can I get one?” in such an excited way I thought I must be in for something good. I was right.
I have always loved scented candles and I’ve tried them all. I like a lot of them, but I LOVE this one. I wish you could smell it through the screen but it is a beautiful clean, fresh smell without being the usual fresh laundry or lemongrass kind of fresh. This candle also throws out some serious fragrance. I have the small votive and it easily fills my open plan living/dining area. It also seems to burn really slowly and cleanly (sooty candle jars are a pet hate of mine). The packaging is understated and elegant. There are so many big fat jars these days, something a little different is always nice.
I’m busy compiling my top 10 Australian candle brands right now but in the meantime, this American had to get a mention. If you try it, I hope you love it as much as I do. I’m so impressed I think I need to try some of their other fragrances. Available through Ambrosia Candles in Australia.
Discovering a fabulous candle is a bit like discovering a new perfume (or you can have both, like I have before, and buy the Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir perfume and candle, but that’s an expensive habit and best reserved for special occasions/gifts!). How important is fragrance in your home?
