The prod­uct: Nest Fra­grances 10th An­niver­sary 3-Wick Can­dles Why we love it: A scented can­dle can set the mood in any liv­ing space — es­pe­cially one that con­jures vivid scent mem­o­ries or boasts an un­ex­pected com­bi­na­tion of notes. Th­ese lim­it­ededi­tion an­niver­sary can­dles ac­com­plish a bit of both. Re­leased in cel­e­bra­tion of the brand’s 10th an­niver­sary, the col­lec­tion of can­dles fea­tures three scents: Bam­boo (a mix of bam­boo with white flo­rals, sparkling cit­rus and fresh green ac­cords); Grape­fruit (a mix of pink pomelo grape­fruit with lily of the val­ley and co­rian­der blos­som); and Moroc­can Am­ber (a mix of am­ber, sweet patchouli, he­liotrope, berg­amot and eu­ca­lyp­tus).

Our favourite is the warm, ex­otic Moroc­can Am­ber, which is sul­try with­out be­ing too sweet. Also of note is the unique wax used in th­ese can­dles, which is a “cos­metic-grade” qual­ity that’s pro­pri­etary to Nest. The wicks in th­ese can­dles are also lead­free and are crafted from ei­ther braided cot­ton or pa­per.

And the best part about th­ese over­sized can­dles? Once they’re fully burned ( be fore­warned, it will take a while as each can­dle boasts be­tween 70 and 90 hours of burn time), the pretty, metal­lic leaf-adorned glass holder can be used as a dec­o­ra­tive item in your home for pens, makeup brushes and the like.
