Pleasant and beautiful fragrances are a big deal for me, and it seems like I’m always on the look out for that perfect one. As with most things in my world, it is always changing based on the season and my mood.
A few years back while shopping in Venice, California I discovered Nest Fragrance candles and have been a fan of the brand ever since. This luxury lifestyle brand has products for the home, body, and bath. I never really thought about or wondered if I would like any of their other products. That was my bad as I have recently fallen hard for their perfumes! And with that discovery, it was time for ya girl to go into full research mode on the brand that is well known for their outstanding fragrances, luxurious formulas, and ultra sleek packaging!
Fun fact…The Nest Fine Fragrance Collection (the personal fragrances) came about when Nest founder Laura Slatkin came across artwork from 18th Century British artist Mary Delany. She then collaborated with master perfumers to translate these works of art into luxurious fragrances that capture the essence of each of the botanicals that adorn the products’ bottles and boxes.
To be completely honest I enjoyed the nose on all the scents, but let the dry down steer me toward the best one ones for me. The winners were Black Tulip and Indigo. I can wear them alone or layered with other scents (I’m notorious for mixing scents).
Black Tulip- This warm floral scent is perfect for the Spring/Summer. The key notes evoke a fresh, alluring scent that is both provocative and mysterious.
Key Notes: Black Amber Plum, Japanese Violet, Pink Pepper, Patchouli
Indigo- For this one think feminine, sultry and woodsy. Be warned once your olfactory receptors are awakened by those front notes you will be intoxicated by its beauty! This one is good as a year round fragrance.
Key Notes: Moroccan Tea, Kashmir Wood, Black Cardamon, Wild Fig
I have my eye and nose on a few more for my collection! Stop back by after you try one of my faves or any of the others to tell me what you think!
