I cannot think of a better gift for Mother’s Day than a fragrance “note” with a handwritten thank you note. Often times we don’t say what is in our hearts and for many of us it’s better expressed with the written rather than spoken word. My mother absolutely loved fragrance and I often gave her perfume for Mother’s Day. She loved beautiful and feminine things so I know she would have adored NEST Fragrances. The packaging is exceptionally beautiful: luxurious with a vintage feel and utterly feminine. Candles are poured into lovely glass etched jars and made with cosmetic-grade wax and meant to burn for 60 hours. Candles are available in 3-wick ($58), Classic 8.1oz ($38) and Votive 2oz. ($14).

There are two new scents: Ocean Mist & Sea Salt and Cedar Leaf and Lavender. Ocean Mist is a refreshing essence of a gentle ocean mist combined with hints of sea salt, white tea and coconut. It’s Hawaii in a jar. The soothing scent brings a spa-like calmness to the room. Cedar Leaf and Lavender mixes rosemary, lavender and sage and enhances it with cedar leaves and a touch of eucalyptus. The lavender and cedar anchors  the scent and keeps it from being too foody. It exudes grace.

I was surprised and delighted to find Bamboo is my favorite scent of the bunch. It combines flowering bamboo mingled with a variety of white florals, sparkling citrus and fresh green accords. It is fresh, clean and delicate. Sicilian Tangerine is infused with bergamot and entwined with exotic mango and passionfruit. This is the strongest scent of the four I tried. It smells exactly like a fresh orange blossoms–vibrant and uplifting. Right now I have this in the living room, and it fills the entire area. I also like that it’s a unisex scent, making it perfect for entertaining. No wonder it’s a best seller!

NEST fine fragrances are expertly crafted, complex and exquisitely packaged. It is apparent from first sniff, NEST Fragrances are different. Inspired by different flowers, the bottles have a matte black side and a clear side adorned with floral illustrations by 18th Century British artist Mary Delany.  She was famous for her exquisitely detailed paper-cut mosaics of plants and flowers. Mary first began to create cut-out paper artworks in the decoupage technique, to create detailed depictions of plants. She later perfected her technique using tissue paper and hand coloration. Each of the fragrances of the NEST collection is decorated with artworks selected by Laura Slatkin.

Indigo, a Sephora exclusive, debuted last year. It’s an sumptuous blend that starts with fresh notes of bergamot, blending citrus freshness with hints of wild figs. It includes distinctive chords of Moroccan tea, warm cashmere wood, and spicy cardamom.I’m really loving this scent and I don’t care for figs. NEST has a way of surprising me with the arrangement of notes in their fragrances. Scents I usually don’t care for are grouped together in a way that has me totally smitten.  This one is captivating and sexy. The fragrance is available as 50 ml Eau de Parfum, and as a 10 ml rollerball edition.

Dahlia and Vines is a softer, more romantic scent. This sophisticated floral features peony, narcissus, rose, white musk and grapes. Dahlia and Vines is a delicate, understated scent perfect for daytime use or a casual summer evening. It exudes The peony and rose are well-balanced and not cloying  while the musk keeps the floral mix from being too much. Elegance and complex. The fragrance is available as 50 ml Eau de Parfum, and as a 10 ml rollerball edition.

How about a gift set of NEST Fragrances for Mother’s Day? I put a few things in a wicker basket. The basket can be used later too.

Although my mother is no longer here on Earth, I am still writing her a note of thanks for shaping me into the person I am today. For her love, guidance, grace and sense of humor. She would have loved Dahlia and Vines so I will wear it in her honor. I chose this note card because my mother did everything with style. 🙂
