A Lovely Trio: Nest Fragrance Reviews


I don’t do many fragrance reviews but I want to feature one of the best deals I got from the Sephora Black Friday in 2014: a gorgeous set of mini Nest roller ball fragrances. In the last few years, as this brand has really taken off internationally, you probably would have seen quite a few Nest Fragrance reviews. It’s a company that makes candles, home fragrances and perfumes. Sephora started carrying Nest maybe about two years ago? Next Fragrances are “inspired by the works of 18th Century British artist Mrs. Mary Delany” and creator Laura Slatkin “collaborated with master perfumers to translate these works of art into luxurious fragrances that capture the essence of each of the botanicals that adorn the products’ striking packaging”. The bottles, the full sizes especially, are indeed striking, I’ll give them that!


Nest Fragrance Reviews Midnight Fleur, Dahlia & Vines, Indigo


Sadly this little trio is no longer available, but there is a new Nest Limited Edition set of seven mini Roller Balls which contains three of the scents featured here, Midnight Fleur, Indigo and Dahlia & Vines in addition to Amazon Lily, Paradise, Passiflora and White Sandalwood. It’s a fantastic deal at $34.00 USD. Also, it seems to be a Sephora exclusive because I haven’t seen it anywhere else. If any of you have seen it sold elsewhere be sure to let us know in the comment section below!


Nest Fragrance Reviews


Midnight Fleur (The Crowd Pleaser): I call this one the “crowd pleaser” not necessarily because of its popularity but because the inclusion of notes, to me, seems to try to cover the widest range of preferences.  Exotic woods, black amber, patchouli, night-blooming jasmine, and vanilla orchid create a scent that is almost like combining one of the popular Marc Jacobs fragrances with something like Dior Poison. I smell floral, a little spicy, then sweet (from the vanilla) with a powdery dry down. It is described by Nest as sensual, intoxicating and bold, and while I agree with the first two adjectives, this scent is not one I’d necessarily place in the “bold” category.

Dahlia & Vines (The Familiar): Of the three fragrances in this set, Dahlia and Vines is probably the most traditional. It is distinctly floral with notes of dewy daffodils, peony, and rose. However, it is not an overly sweet floral, perhaps due to the “essence of garden vines” (grapes). This makes is somewhat more unique. Also, the rose notes are done extremely well – crisp and clean. The company’s description is on point here: elegant, classic and romantic.

Indigo (The One): This is me in a bottle. Pepper. Fig. Woody. Citrus.  Anything sweet and spicy – I’m sold.  With notes of moroccan tea, kashmir wood, black cardamom, wild fig and bergamot, you might think you’re reading the description of man’s cologne. And the scent does verge on masculine. But there is a sophisticated, clean sweetness from the fig that makes it irresistible. I get a distinct whiff of licorice upon initial application but the scent becomes increasingly fruity with wear. This one won’t be from everyone but it is truly warm, aromatic and mysterious.

    I have some Nest candles and I love them! I have some from the After Midnight range as they are black wax in black glass jars, which look and smell amazing.

      Ooh, I’ll definitely have to check those out! They sound fabulous! xo

    The candles sound nice and I’d probably prefer them over the fragrances. I’m quite fussy with scents so I usually stick to 1 or maybe 2 per season. Currently on the lookout for a beautiful spring scent 😉 Midnight Fleur seems quite interesting though, something that might suit me!

    1. Kimmy

      It’s always fun to change up scents and look for new ones – what options have you sniffed out for spring so far?

  3. plus+beauty27

    Those sound really nice! I think I will have to check them out. 🙂 xo

    1. Kimmy

      Definitely take sniff next time you’re in Sephora!

  4. Jaa

    Oh I have samples of these! I wonder if I have the same scents. I have a feeling I’ll like Indigo the most, too. I like scents that turn fruity as the day wears on.

    Can I say that I absolutely LOVE your pictures in this post? They are so beautiful! <3 😀

    1. Kimmy

      Thank you so much, Jaa! I have to admit I was kind of proud of them…wish the pics could always turn out this well. One day, I hope to get to the point where they are consistently good (kind of like someone I know, wink) xo.

    I’ve never heard of this brand but I love the packaging and the scents sound really nice. I reckon Midnight Fleur would be my favourite. 🙂 x

      Isn’t the packaging divine? I think I may purchase a full size at some point just to display it! 🙂

  6. Karen

    This trio looks and sounds amazing! I’m definitely going to check out the box of 6 as Sandalwood is one of my favourite scents 🙂



    1. Kimmy

      Yay! That set is an amazing value!

  7. Gyudy

    I’ve never heard of this brand! The packaging is simply gorgeous though – but I can’t even try to guess which one I’d like more, it’s too hard! 😉 xx

      I wonder if Nest will eventually be sold at the Sephoras in Italy?

  8. Sunny

    I haven’t read that much about the brand, but I have indeed seen it! Indigo probably wouldn’t be for me because I can’t do fig (like at all), but the other two sound good!

    1. Kimmy

      I’m curious about the other scents now. 🙂 And I have to catch up on your Perfume Mondays, Sunny. They are always inspiring!

  9. Serene Kurd

    These look amazing I’ve never heard of Nest before!!! <3
