A rich and luxurious looking collection by Nest Fragrances. Smoked and cased frosted glass containers with gold accents hold extra high quality wax for a super clean burn. The fragrance is as rich as the packaging with hints of exotic scents of Frankincense, Dark Woods and light notes of smoky embers.
The collection offers an 8.1 oz candle, an oversized three wick candle, and a lovely diffuser for a continuous fragrance stream. A small 2.4 oz votive candle is also available in Hearth to sample this lovely fall and winter fragrance.
“Hearth is a rich, dark, sensual fragrance to be enjoyed during the winter season – the exotic notes of frankincense, oud wood and smoky embers are reminiscent of romantic evenings curled up in front of a crackling fireplace. When combined with our Holiday and Birchwood Pine fragrances – the combination is intoxicatingly beautiful.”- Laura Slatkin, Owner & designer of Nest Fragrances

New fragrances are Branche Vermiel which is reminiscent of the retired Frost Pinecone, and the lovely Champagne Rose with its crisp and smooth blend of edible White Rose Petals and tart cassis berries in a bubbling bath of Bruit Rose Champagne

The room sprays in the Voluspa Japonica collection have been re-introduced in new
beautiful packaging after an absence of over a year. The re-introduction includes the old favorites of Goji & Tarocco, Santiago Huckleberry and Baltic Amber along the new fragrances of the Japonica collection.
The Voluspa Baltic Amber has been a top favorite of customers with its rich Amber undertones and the creamy smooth Vanilla notes that warms your soul.
These sprays are formulated to use both as a room spray or as a body mist for a splash of fragrance
that will not overpower you. The spray does not have the fixatives that perfumes have for a very long lasting effect, however you will still discern the fragrance hours later.
The new sprays come in an elegant square bottle with golden caps, and an embossed imprinted box that is beautiful enough to give with a simple bow and without wrapping.
