Next by Nest Fragrances Subscription Box Review – July 2017

Next by Nest is a 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!

This packaging is fantastic. It’s a high-end gift box that you’ll definitely want to keep and re-use. (And if you are thinking about buying this subscription as a gift, it’s already perfectly wrapped each month!)

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:

Each box comes with a card detailing the scent of the month.

July’s fragrance is Ocean Mist & Sea Salt.

Now, on to the items!

Ocean Mist & Sea Salt Classic Candle – Value $40

The candle is poured into a frosted glass vessel. And as always, the packaging of Nest Candles is lovely and perfect for gifting.

This scent is described as a “gentle ocean mist is combined with hints of sea salt, white tea, and coconut.”

I think this is the first Nest fragrance I’m not in love with. It does have that classic ocean candle scent, but I think it’s just a little too strong for me. These will be gifted!

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:

Ocean Mist & Sea Salt Votive Candle – Value $16

This candle has a 20-hour burn time and the same glass and box design as the larger candle.

Over the past few months, Nest has been sending two votives instead of one votive and one surprise item. But! This month, the surprise item is back!

Ocean Mist & Sea Salt Liquid Soap – Value $22

Yay for fancy soap! I always appreciate a liquid soap that you would actually want to display!

Verdict: I’m happy that Next by Nest Fragrances sent a real surprise item this month! The scent might not be a hit for me, but this whole box will make a great gift. 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.

What do you think of the July Next by Nest Fragrances box? What’s your favorite scent so far?

  1. This was my 3rd month of of a 3 month sub. Bamboo in May was great, grapefruit in June I was not a fan, but this month is my favorite fragrance so far. I love it. I was very excited to receive the hand soap in lieu of another votive. I’ve been swapping the extra votive and they do swap well so that is good. Didn’t swap anything this month because I love this scent so much.
    My candles arrived completely melted this month but CS not only overnighted replacements they also sent some very nice extras. I signed up for 6 more months.
    This sub is great because you don’t have to pay for it up front. You are charged at the end of each month for the following month. I can’t wait to see what the new fragrance is for October.
    Before MSA I would never have imagined spending this much on a candle and now it has become my favorite brand. Nordstrom has NEST diffusers for the anniversary sale and I’m going to treat myself to the Bamboo scent.

    • Awesome!!

    • I thank you for this information. I live in the Southeast and wondered about the candles arriving completely melted during the hotter months. I’m not sure what method Nest uses for shipping, but I know for certain that neither the UPS, nor the USPS trucks here have any air conditioning going on. (Not sure about FedEx, but I would be surprised if their trucks do, considering…) I really want to try this subscription, but it’ll have to wait until Fall.

  2. As soon as we move, I will be getting this. This sub makes me super happy!

  3. I’ve been stalking this sub but haven’t bitten yet. Looks like August is Apricot Tea, September is Pumpkin Chai and October is a brand new fragrance launch so this might be the time! Lol.

    • Oh dear, I wish I had not read this, Those scents sound amazing!

    • Apricot tea!!! I can not resist 🤗

  4. Fancy liquid soap is one of my favorite home items. It’s super useful, and not something you’d typically buy at full price.

    • I totally agree! This soap makes me want to buy this box, but I won’t…I don’t burn candles much with a 6 year old and a very energetic 1 year old puppy.
