THE IT LIST
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.
