New Nest New York Mediterranean Fig Home Fragrance Collection for spring 2020 review of the candle and the reed diffuser

The classic candle – 230 gm burns for over 60 hours. The glass vase of the candle is designed to complement the beauty of the festive surrounding while the classic shape and modern stripe etching complement any décor.

The reed diffuser is designed to fill your home continuously with a lush, memorable fragrance. The formula releases fragrance slowly and evenly. This reed diffuser captures the lush aromas of the Mediterranean landscape with crushed fig leaves, blue cypress, and the essence of turquoise waters.

The candle is 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. I have been burning Nest Candles for a few years now and they are amazing – not overly intense but just the right aroma and vibe in the room.

This is a really nice addition to my home decor as well as the home scents for spring. Nest New York is available at Sephora Canada, Sephora.ca, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.



Aerin is a brand that makes me remind of elegance, feminity, beauty, and love. I have not tried many Aerin fragrances or body products, so I did not have any specific expectations before my first and subsequent spritz of the scend I am going to sharing ahead in this article. Aerin Aegea Blossom Eau de Parfum is a vibrant floral fragrance, Aegea Blossom, which is a voyage of the senses inspired by the blue sea, cool breezes, and pure light of Greece.

Aerin Aegea Blossom Eau de Parfum review

Radiant Bergamot and Verbena give way to sheer Jasmine, Orange Flower and Neroli Petals finished with Musk and Sandalwood. In the final notes, glowing Musk surrenders to the sultry, lingering notes of Vetiver and Sandalwood, as warm as sunlight on water. To sail its waters is to feel a release of pure joy and freedom.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Verbena, Mandarin Orange

Middle Notes: Jasmine, African Orange Flower, Neroli

Base Notes: Musk, Vetiver, Sandalwood

Aerin Aegea Blossom Eau de Parfum review

The fragrance smells absolutely delicious. On me, it starts off strong as lime/citrus scent, then over time a musky, laundry-like but then dies down to a beautiful uplifting sweet floral scent. I can see myself wearing this scent on a beautiful day in Santorini – as is the scent inspired by it. Aerin fragrances and products are available on esteelauder.ca , Holt Renfrew, and Sephora.ca

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris femme Extrait de parfum review

This fresh flower fragrance is definitely becoming one of my most reached out scent these days. The is very elegant and ladylike. The longevity on me is pretty good as is the projection – it stays on for over 5 hours on me and after which I had to do a little effort to feel it around me. The scent makes you feel like it is there but not overpowering, can be used every day. As it is natural as well as an urban lifestyle-oriented scent – I do feel the freshness and energy with how vibrant it is when worn.
