The past few days have been gloomy, cool and rainy. Seattle’s rainy season is here! And that means it’s fall.¬†This cool weather has me thinking about my favorite cozy fragrances for the home.

OK, I’ve had a really busy Sunday organizing and cleaning, but I thought I’d post something anyway. Here’s my “mini reviews” of two home fragrances from NEST.

NEST Fragrances Orchid Rain Candle for Jason Wu Review

I can talk about most scents and I can describe most scents but NEST Fragrances Orchid Rain for Jason Wu has been a difficult one for me. All I want to say is that it’s perfect. The end.

NEST Jason Wu Orchid Rain candle

With the name Orchid Rain and from the note list, I expected something dewy and fruity with a hint of pink pepper spice. Honestly, I expected something I’ve smelled before. That’s the problem with expectations. You have to experience things.
