The Scented Nest

By Jo Phillips

Most of us probably know what a nest is, in the simplest terms it is a structure built by birds from twigs and leaves in order to create a home, a place of warmth and safety but a nest can also be not very pleasant think of a nest of hornets, but it’s good for them but not for us. We however as humans think of terms like nesting as being ways to keep cosy warm and secure, our homes in many ways are our equivalent of a nest, we even have our own phrase about empty nesters (when the kids grow up and leave), but does your nest smell of twigs and leaves or do you prefer something more say vanilla tinged?

The word Nest was cleverly used by Laura Slatkin when she opened her fragranced home, perfume, personal care, and wellness collections under the brand name. the very simple idea that our homes can be scented beautifully in order to bring an extra level of joy into our lives.

Every holiday season the brand brings out festival-scented items to lift the home and open the door to let the celebration spirit in. This year is no different.

Firstly meet Crystallized Ginger and Vanilla bean

Indulge in the irresistible gourmand scent that features heartwarming notes of crystallized ginger, cinnamon, and vanilla bean to capture the rich aromas reminiscent of the season. The candle is housed in a glass vessel adorned with a festive metallic gold design.

Next comes the Holiday collection. The quintessential aroma of the season is created by blending pomegranate, mandarin orange, pine, cloves, and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and amber. The limited collection is housed in glass vessels with a metallic gold design. This is available in four sizes, regular, three wicks, Votive and grand, alongside a diffuser.

If Holiday is too ‘Christmas’ in scent then why not go for Birchwood Pine, for a wintery yet warming scent? The aroma of a majestic winter forest is created by blending white pine, fir balsam, and birchwood over a base of rich musk and amber. The limited collection is housed in glass vessels adorned with a festive metallic gold design. Again the candle if available in regular, grand and votive sizes.

Or for a different approach why not go down the Blue Cypress and Snow route? Made up of notes of crisp blue cypress and juniper berry with hints of smoked vanilla bean create the aroma of a snow-covered mountain retreat in winter. The limited collection is housed in glass vessels adorned with a festive metallic silver design. this candle comes in two sizes three wick and grade as well as a diffuser.

This is a Selfridges Exclusive

Lastly, meet Hearth. The aroma of a warm crackling fireplace is created by combining rich oud wood with frankincense and hints of smoky embers. Each candle features brown-tinted wax formulated to burn cleanly and evenly housed in a glass vessel of the same colour adorned with a festive metallic gold design. this scent also comes in regular and three-wick sizes.

The brand has gift sets too but when we are a bit nearer please do come back and see us for more inspirational sets.
