I'm in love with the Nest Pumpkin Chai candle. So in love, I don't know where to start. Right away I'm taken with the packaging. I love the bold orange box. Orange is one of my favorite colors and fall is my favorite season, so we're off to a great start. Only Nest can make orange look so chic. Next up is the vessel. With translucent brown glass, the container perfectly complements the warm scent. The wax when cold is a blush orange color that turns to the most gorgeous autumn red/orange when burning. It couldn't be prettier. (So pretty, I had to take a photo.)
Within minutes of lighting the candle, swirls of spices surround me. I am quickly enveloped in the scent of pumpkin, chai and cinnamon. Make no mistake - this is no Pumpkin Pie candle. Somehow Nest has managed to create a scent so yummy yet not at all sweet. I do want to eat it, though, it's that delicious. The addition of chai spices adds a very sophisticated accent making it less American and more ethnic. I like that twist. Well traveled and comfortable, like a worn pair of jeans. It's definitely not a fresh, fleshy pumpkin scent either. It's more of a baked, warm, pumpkin. So cozy and yet so refined. This is a fragrance that would work in the most casual apartment to the most elegant home.
Nest Pumpkin Chai has given me a welcome reprieve from the sticky heat outside. I'm transported to a crisp fall day. I look forward to when I can return home from an afternoon of apple picking in the cool, fresh air to be embraced by this warm, inviting scent. Well done Nest! I'm gushing.
