After meeting one of Lara Slatkin’s fabulous fragrance experts from NEST Fragrances at an Upper East piano bar, I was privileged to have been sent three of the company’s unique candles (Nest’s Grapefruit Candle is a rumored favorite of Sarah Jessica Parker). Nestled in a gift bag were the following fragrances which you can pick up in person at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus or online  at and

Orange Blossom, a blend orange blossom, orchid, tiare flower and freesia combined with tangerine, lemon and musk.

Moss & Mint,  garden mint, apple blossom and muguet are infused with a touch of oakmoss and vetiver.

Wasabi Pear is my personal favorite scent and my newest petit plaisir. This wonderful candle is a blend of Anjou pear and ozonic watery notes infused with the essence of wasabi.

NEST Fragrances carries candles in a varied array of sizes and scents. With votives starting at $14.00, traditional sizes at $32 , 3-wick candles at $58 and, if you really feel like splurging there is the NEST Fragrances Luxe 13- Votive Gift Set featuring all twelve of NEST’s everyday fragrances along with a holiday votive.
