Late last week, I was chatting up the new Commodity Storybook Fragrance Gift Set which I happened to purchase as soon as it launched at Sephora! Later that night I found myself hauling out the Nest Eau de Parfum Collection Coffret ($38) because I think it’s such a delightful way to try out Nest.
I should really start this post by saying the first time I tried Nest I found the fragrances rather sweet. Don’t get me wrong, I love a sweet floral scent but sometimes it can be overkill. Somehow, someway, Nest captured more and more of my attention after I kept misting myself with a new one each time I walked into Sephora. Until one day, I found that I absolutely loved the brand (especially their new Black Tulip fragrance!).
A few months ago I purchased the Nest Eau de Parfum Collection Coffret not because I needed it. Because at this point I have already purchased and own all the Nest fragrances but because I wanted a easy travel version of my favorite scents. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the set. Would the roll-ons be as strong as the mists? Would they have lasting power? Was it even worth picking this set up?
I’ll happily tell you this is so worth your money. The set comes with seven 0.10 oz roll ons which makes up for a majority of almost all the scents Nest offers. My set is an older set but the newest one includes Black Tulip!
- In Midnight Fleur
- For Dahlia & Vines
- Black Tulip
- White Sandalwood
I truly can’t recommend the set enough. It’s a beautiful introduction to a great niche brand. As I said above, the scents take some getting used but many a truly easy enough to wear right out of the box. For example, White Sandalwood is a beautifully creamy, comforting scent that reminds me of just washed cloths drying in the Summer sun. Citrine is a delightfully zesty lemon that’s perfect for Spring! And Black Tulip, is like a darker version or Miss Dior!
I was skeptical about the rollerballs as I worried they wouldn’t be as strong as the mists. Turns out they are quite concentrated. A few rolls around my pulse points produces long wearing scent with excellent throw (so much so you’ll get asked, “What are you wearing!?”
If you’re a lover of fine fragrance I have no doubts that the Nest Eau de Parfum Collection Coffret will bring you plenty of joy.
