NEST Black Fig & Honey is a dessert fig scent. It’s like dried figs drizzeled with sticky honey. It’s sweet and delicious. I do get a rich, boozy vanilla. This fig isn’t fresh or overly green. It isn’t too fruity either. It smells like a “dark” fig soaked in honey with a teeny bit of wood. The honey gives a slight muskiness which works so well with the vanilla. The cognac emphasizes the dried fig quality, adding a boozey, sweet raisin note. Yum.
Black Fig & Honey is sweet and comforting. I like it for any room/space. But, you guys already know that I love fig, so maybe I’m partial. However, I mainly get vanilla and honey from this candle. I could use more fig, but I’m a fig fanatic. I see this as a fragrance for a crisp autumn night, when the last of the figs are being harvested.
I’m happy with the throw of this fragrance. A small candle scents the entire room. The candle burns evenly and slowly.
Notes listed include black fig, honey, cognac, and Madagascar vanilla.
I think one would like the scent of this candle if they like scents like B&BW Brown Sugar & Fig, La Compagnie de Provence, and/or Illume Vanilla Fig. Think sweet fig instead of green, fresh fig.
This candle retails for $32 and is available at Candles Off Main. (Update – this fragrance has been discontinued).
