I love trying out new perfumes.
Fragrances are different from cosmetics, since typically you either like them or you don’t. For the most part, you know what a foundation is going to do, however, with scents, since each one has a particular smell to it, it’s a gamble on what you’re going to get.
I was already familiar with Nest since I attended a sample sale in New York City this past May where I picked up one of their luxurious candles for a really good price. I knew that they have a variety of home scents (candles and diffusers), but wasn’t too familiar with their perfumes.
They recently came out with a new scent that they sent my way, Cocoa Woods, a sensory combination of bittersweet cocoa wrapped in sequola wood and white sandalwood, blended with hints of tiare blossom and Thai ginger. I couldn’t wait to give this a smell and see how it wears and I have to say that it is quite delectable on the skin. It’s not the summeriest scent, but will be perfect for when we head into the fall months. If you are worried that it will smell too chocolatey, have no fear, it’s actually more of a darker fragrance. Think warm and sexy.
Since this was my very first Nest fragrance, I was super interested in trying out some of their other scents, and I have to say, they don’t disappoint. Nest sent over Wisteria Blue (key notes: French wisteria, Bulgarian rose, imperial jasmine), Black Tulip (key notes: black amber plum, pink pepper, Japanese violet), Citrine (lemon blossom, lotus flower, fressia, dew drop accord, precious woods), Dahlia & Vines (dewy daffodils, peony, rose, garden vines), Indigo (Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, cardamom, wild fig), and Midnight Fleur (exotic woods, black amber, patchouli, night-blooming jasmine, vanilla orchid).
So do I have a favourite? No, as they all smell awesome. It’s very rare that I smell every scent from a line and love all of them. Each perfume has this layered level of decadence that blossoms as you wear it. I do find a lot of them to be wearable for every season since they have transferrable scents, meaning that they are too summery or too dark. You really can sport them from the beach to the ski hill.
Each scent is an eau de parfum, meaning that a little goes a long way. You’ll also find that they stay on longer than an eau de toilette would since it’s more potent. Like I said, I wasn’t too familiar with the perfume line of Nest prior to this month, but I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on new scents going into the future.
Also, keep an eye on my Instagram, I have a giveaway coming up where you can win your very own Cocoa Woods.
