Nest Wisteria Blue Eau de Parfum Review

Nest Fragrances Wisteria Blue is the latest perfume added to the house’s permanent line of fragrances for the Spring/Summer 2018 season. In a very recent post I had said it has been far too long between Nest Fragrance releases and within the time the words left my mouth and made it to my blog Wisteria Blue launched.

You see, it does so feel like the release of Nest Black Tulip was simply ages and ages ago. In reality it’s only been two short years but when you enjoy a brand’s fragrances you wish they’d do a new release every other day.

I actually didn’t like Nest when they first popped up in the niche fragrance world. I tried one or two of their scents they felt cloyingly sweet and headache inducing. Oddly enough, after trying them a few years later I fell in love with the line and now I own all the scents. Go figure.

Nest Wisteria Blue couldn’t come at a better time as Spring is here and quickly turning into summer and the warm days ahead will make a perfect setting for the soothing, fresh, and aquatic feel of this fragrance. I’ve heard this smells like Jo Malone London Wild Bluebell Cologne but I actually don’t have that fragrance nor have I smelled it so I can’t confirm.

If blue had a scent it would smell like this! This smells blue to me. Don’t ask me what the means, it just is 🙂 Wisteria is an interesting note to start out with here but isn’t one that dominates the scent because in reality if you sniff wisteria at it’s off peak it actually smells quite green but not necessarily floral until it fully blooms. It’s actually slightly green, fresh, aquatic, and sweet. Rose and Jasmine play an important role in the fragrance with rose giving the scent a sweetness and jasmine giving hints of green. I think the Wisteria note is where the freshness developed in the fragrance and also where I’m getting that aquatic note.

It reminds me of sitting by a lake on a Summer day in the shade under a blooming wisteria vine. The water lapping at the deck, a slightly cool breeze blowing in from the lake, and the prettiness of a bouquet of floral notes in the background.

About three or so mists of this on your chest and arms projects well with excellent throw and a good strong wear throughout the day.

All in all, Nest Wisteria Blue offers up a slightly sweet aquatic floral fragrance that smells fresh and cooling.

Perfect for the Summer heat!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Excellent review. I’m still in the cloying phase of Nest, though the dry down usually improves them, in general. The Slattery bottles are TDF, and the concepts are slightly offbeat, featuring a less common key note.

      I went through that phase too but somehow they have become a fav of mine ;-D I agree about the improvement on dry down! First mist is powerful but after they settle they soften 🙂

    Sephora sent me a sample of this and it is literally the only fragrance that doesn’t give me a raging headache. I might have to pick up the full size!
