A Creative Collection For Finicky Candle Fans
By Marci Robin , Senior Online Editor |
There are people who claim to love candles. All candles. No matter the scent or the receptacle, they'll gladly display and light each and every one. We, however, don't get it. We don't love candles-we love certain candles. Ones with beautiful presentations and breathtaking scents. Mediocrity is not an option.
Nest Fragrances meets and exceeds our picky candle standards. Laura Slatkin spent years mulling over the collection before putting forth a dozen unforgettable scents in sophisticated, simple, frost-striped glass jars.
The line includes scents that are obviously unusual-in the best possible way-such as Beeswax & Whipped Cream and Wild Oats & Bourbon. But even the seemingly standard scents are full of unexpected notes. Orange Blossom, for example, releases hints of orchid, tiare, freesia, lemon and musk.
We were amused that the warning on the package reads, "Please remove the candle from the box before burning," but the box itself is so cute that it must be an issue! Do yourself a favor and enjoy these gift-perfect candles without the adorable, combustible box.
