The Limited Edition NEST Opulence Scented Candle (and a Tabs Cameo)

Published in: Daily Beauty

It feels weird to admit that I’m enamored with a candle, but I am really, really enamored with this one from NEST Fragrances.


It’s called Opulence, by Ken Downing, and it’s a whopping $40, which is a lot for a candle, but it smells almost supernaturally good — like autumn leaves, fireplaces, snuggly cable-knit sweaters and long hugs from handsome boys.

I mean now, come on, doesn’t that sound good? 🙂


It’s available now at Neiman Marcus stores and

“Our own Ken Downing, together with NEST Fragrances, developed this exotic fragrance that layers the essences of black orchid, sandalwood and amber against a sumptuous backdrop of Malaysian patchouli leaf, Australian sandalwood and hints of Mirabelle plum.”

Even Tabs loves Opulence…

    Wow – I just learned about this awesome brand within the last 2 weeks and am soooo enjoying their Moss & Mint body wash and hand soap and here’s Nest on MBB ! Yes, the products are very pricey, but the fragrance payoff is huge, and the scents are beautiful and unique. I’m currently waiting for my latest online purchase – Nest’s Cleopatra perfume and body lotion, which has a grapefruit and cucumber essence, and I can’t wait to receive my early holiday present to myself !

    I love scented candles! Does this one smell super perfumey, though? I worry about that when it comes to the more expensive candles.

    (PS: I totally link to you in my blog post today. After all, you were the inspiration.)
