NEST Peony Blanche is a feminine, romantic fresh floral that isn’t cloying. It’s a big, beautiful, spring floral, a budding diva. For some reason, I imagine this is what a young pop star’s dressing rooms smell like 🙂
The scent is definitely floral with ozonic peony, sweet violet, and heady magnolia. There’s a little bit of watery melon to this that keeps Peony Blanche fresh. Usually florals like this are too cloying and heavy. Peony Blanche isn’t. NEST does a wonderful job with florals, adding enough “water” to balance out the blends. This aquatic element keeps the florals from being suffocating or powdery. NEST does “fresh floral” very, very well.
Like all NEST candles, the throw is really good with this one. The scent will linger. The candle burns slowly and evenly. The wax in this one is pink, one of my favorite shades in home decor. My house is really, really pink. I’m proud of this 🙂
Notes listed include peony blossoms, watery nuances, jasmine, magnolia, and lily.
You may like the scent of Peony Blanche if you like romantic florals like NEST Pink Jasmine, Archipelago Peony, and/or Slatkin & Co. Hydrangea.
The 8.1 0z glass jar NEST candle retails for $32 and is available at Candles Off Main.
