There is a new candle subscription box from Nest Fragrances, and of course I had to subscribe immediately. (I love their candles!)

Each month you’ll receive a classic candle, a votive candle, and one surprise item – all in the same scent!

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes


The Subscription Box: Next by Nest Fragrances

The Cost: $56 a box (available in 3 or 6 month options)

The Products: Inside each month’s box, you’ll find:
• One Classic Candle
• One Votive Candle
• A note from our Founder, Laura Slatkin, on the month’s curated scent
• A special surprise gift
All will be housed in a beautiful NEST fragrances box that is perfect for gifting

Ships to: US Only

Each box comes with a card detailing the scent of the month. October’s fragrance is Pumpkin Chai.


Pumpkin Chai Classic Candle – Value $40

This scent is a blend of pumpkin, spicy masala chai, cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. So basically just fall in a candle!

And with this subscription, in addition to the large candle (50-60 burn time), you also get a mini votive candle in the same scent:


Pumpkin Chai Votive Candle – Value $16

This has a 20-hour burn time and the same glass design as the larger candle. Both of these candles give off a lot of scent without burning them, so I’ll be spacing them out and making my whole house smell like Pumpkin Chai!

And each month will also include a surprise gift:


Pumpkin Chai Liquid Soap – Value $22

I’m so impressed that this was the surprise gift! It’s high value and a perfect addition to the two candles. (Plus who doesn’t love a fancy looking hand soap?)

Verdict: I’m very happy with my first month of Next by Nest Fragrances. For one thing, I fall into the category of people who say, “Pumpkin Spice all the things!” so this scent is a homerun for me. And I’m happy with the value, too.

This box has a value of $78. I think that’s good for a $56 subscription, and that’s not including the value of the box itself. This is definitely one of those boxes you will want to keep for storage or regifting!

What do you think of the October Next by Nest Fragrances box?

  1. This is a lot better than I expected, upon initial announcement that Nest was going to have a monthly box. I often get overwhelmed when trying to pick out candles. Having this sent to me takes that away & you get the “surprise factor”. So, to me, there’s value in that. I have a store almost across the street that sells massive amounts of Nest products. I could stand there for 45 min smelling them all & leave with nothing because I’m overwhelmed & I don’t want to make the wrong choice.. So, I give up! lol! xo.?
    NEST: I’ve got my eye on you. ???

  2. $56/month for a box of candles?! Sounds crazy… so why did I immediately log onto their page and sign up for a 3 month sub?? Haha I can’t wait to get my first box!

  3. Looks nice!! I may have to try it sometime since I’m a candle fanatic but wish it was more affordable for a monthly box /: I currently subscribe to Vellabox candle subscription & recently upgraded to the $30 box. Obsessed!!

  4. Thanks for reviewing this! Looks great!

  5. Question…when I go to their website it doesn’t mention a special surprise gift, it just says you get the big candle and votive. Can you confirm that’s every month? Or was it just this first month?

    • Nevermind my comment above…see you found it in the FAQ.

  6. Darn you Liz! I’ve actually never bought a Nest candle. And now this review wants me to sign up for the box! I will say it’s a great box for Nov/Dec/Jan because that’s when I burn candles, when I’m cozy in the house.

  7. Can I still get the Oct box is I sign up now?

    • Your first box would be the November box. Sorry!

  8. Oh December is Birchwood Pine. I’ve been slowing nursing my current birchwood pine candle. One of my favorite scents!

  9. I would be happy with this box!

  10. So if I buy a 3 month sub and don’t like the scent, like this one, I can skip a month?

    • I was thinking the same question…if you go to the web page it gives you a 3 month preview!!

    • You can’t skip any month, but on their site, they show the November and December boxes so you can see what you’d get. Hope that helps!

  11. I love Nest fragrances and have a lovely hand lotion dispenser of theirs on the desk in my office. But…just bought a $400 camera today so I think this sub will have to wait…

  12. Oh wow! I want this so bad, but that’s beyond my sub box budget. :/ Unless I cancel like 3 other boxes.

    • Also, if you don’t like the scent, the whole box is that one scent.

  13. Now this is a box I can get behind – and 100% functional!
    No worries about if it fits, or if the color would be okay for me.

    I am over the moon on this one!!!

    • Glad to hear you love it, too! Plus you know the scents up front, so you can really take out the risk. (which is always good for a pricey sub!) 🙂

      • Good point about knowing the scent ahead of time, so it takes out that risk element (if you can find that scent in a store to smell beforehand). Also, good call on deciding to subscribe! Thanks for taking that risk(!), and it seems like it got to you pretty fast! Seeing what the spoiler is, definitely makes this worth it to me. I was hoping it’d at least be something in the $20 price range. I’m looking forward to future reviews. 🙂

      • Yes! I am the Queen of Smell Goods!
        And you can decide before hand if the colors fit well too!

        • Good point! I can’t wait for the holiday candles!

          • Me too!
            Christmas will be lit! #Literally

      • I have a friend who would be thrilled with this sub , I’ll have to tell her about this! Thanks for the review !
