We love our candles. In our homes and in our shop. Candles are part of that universal thread that calm the weathered spirit after a hard day. Our NEST candles feature flowering bamboo mingled with a variety of white florals, sparkling citrus and fresh green accords. Just a hint of jasmine makes Bamboo our signature scent for Laurier Blanc and NEST set the tone for luxury fragrances. Hands-down, our favorite scent for home and the gallery and we are proud to offer free shipping on all our NEST candles and diffusers. Beautiful to give as a gift or for something for your own home to add a distinct fresh scent.
NEST Fragrances candles are made with a premium, soft, highly refined, cosmetic-grade wax that was developed over many years to optimize burn and fragrance diffusion. The ingredients used are the highest grade of wax materials and the finest fragrance oils available. NEST Fragrances candles are well-known for infusing a room with fragrance. A clean, well-designed room is always enhanced by a fine candle with fragrance or not.
Candles were historically used as 'portable electricity' for the wealthy. Wax was literally the binding agent of high society until over time cheaper grades of wax became available and everyone was able to purchase tapers for lighting the bedside or table. They were used at first predominantly in church ceremonies. At one point the spiritual aspect sort of 'spilled' over into domesticity and daily living. Consciously or not the common folk of the time also felt them to be connected to something virtuous. Although of course their main use was for necessity of light and their practicality. Light swaying on the edge of a wick in the dark is the welcoming doormat of the past. This is why candles are always something great to give as a gift as they are the consummate unifier. A candle is the welcome gift that never tires.
