If you have never heard of Nest Fragrances, then it's time for me (and Sephora) to introduce you. The brand has been a favorite among beauty editors, and it first hooked me on its wide selection of candles. Now the Nest name is coming to a location near you through its new partnership with Sephora. The brand's classic perfumes, candles, and hand creams have been revamped for the store in more affordable sizing (think rollerballs). You'll be able to experiment with and share a sampling of all five scents with the Eau de Parfum Coffret ($38). My favorite is White Sandalwood, which has notes of musk and cedar to give it a warmth your boyfriend will love (yes, there might be sharing). Plus, the luxe black packaging looks great on your vanity, in your travel makeup case, or sitting on your desktop.
Summer is the perfect time for a Sicilian getaway, but even if you don't make it overseas, Nest Fragrances' newest scent is the next best thing. The Sicilian Tangerine Classic Candle ($34) is a brand-new fragrance to join the brand's Core Collection. Juicy notes of tangerine and bergamot add a splash of vibrance, while hints of passion fruit and mango give the scent a tropical feel. It's just the right blend to fill the hot Summer air with something fun and refreshing. Whether you're hosting a Summer bash or just want to transport to an island state of mind, strike a match, and you'll be there.
The consistency of the wash is similarly harmonious: you get the sudsing action of a gel but the moisturizing aspects of a cream. Bamboo water and silk protein hydrate, while aloe vera gel soothes irritated spots and patches. Mostly, though, it's the perfect transitional aroma from Summer to Fall, thanks to its citrus and floral base. Blossom forth, indeed.
