Whether you’re planning a big dinner party or an intimate gathering with friends, soft candlelight and irresistible aromas create the perfect holiday ambiance on a cold winter night.
Nest’s Festive Home Collection is crafted with the finest blend of oils and this year my favorite Diffuser is Spiced Orange and Clove ($64.00). The set comes with a decorative jar that looks great in any room and I love how consistent the scent is. The reeds continuously fill the air with lush, delectable fragrance that remains fresh for 90 days.
Every time I enter my bedroom I smell delicious cinnamon, star anise and sweet gingered honey with a splash of brandy. It reminds me of a drink my grandmother used to make infused with nutmeg and cream.The pretty jar can be moved around the house and makes a wonderful hostess gift.
After a long, hectic day I love turning on the Christmas tree, wrapping myself in a warm blanket and lighting the Spiced Orange and Clove Candle ($56.00). It sets the mood for a romantic night in and makes the living room feel cozy.
Nest also makes some of the prettiest Rollerball Fragrances ($36.00) I have ever seen and the intoxicating scents are sure to impress all the ladies on your list.
If you’re looking for luxury stocking stuffers it doesn’t get much better than this. Wild Poppy is sweet floral and fruity infused with juicy pear, raspberry, apricot, rose and Himalayan Jasmine. Indigo is my favorite. The blend is warm, spicy, exotic and sensual with notes of Moroccan tea, black cardamom, wild fig and bergamot.
Black Tulip is composed of warm florals – Japanese violet, pink pepper, plum, black amber and patchouli. It is described as provocative and alluring but to me it smells exactly like the LUSH store filled with yummy bath bombs. Wisteria Blue is fresh, sweet, powdery and summery with nuances of Bulgarian rose, French wisteria and imperial jasmine.
These slender tubes are great for travel and they slip into any evening bag.
Nest Fragrances is available at Sephora and sephora.ca.
