Next by Nest Fragrances Subscription Box Review – August 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

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

July’s fragrance is Apricot Tea.

Now, on to the items!

Apricot Tea 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 an “English apricot wrapped in the richness of black tea leaves and combined with bergamot and golden amber. “

When I saw the scent was apricot, I was worried this scent would be too overly fruity/sweet for me, but it is a much more subdued fruit scent! The black tea is the perfect accent!

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:

Apricot Tea Votive Candle – (Set of 2) Value $32

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. Sadly, they are back to this habit again!

But! I have good news! Look at what’s coming up in the next few months:

September: Pumpkin Chai!

October: A New Collection Launch!

November: A New Look for the Holiday Collection!

(I’m pretty excited for all these things. In my opinion, fall/holiday are the best Nest scents of all time!)


Verdict: I’m almost always happy with my Next by Nest Fragrances subscription. I wish they would stop sending the double votive and send a surprise item like they originally promised, but it looks like any mention of a surprise item is now gone from their site. I love their candles, though, so this isn’t a deal breaker for me.

This box has a value of $72. I think that’s good for a $56 subscription, and that’s not including the value of the box itself. (This would make the best gift ever.)

What do you think of the August Next by Nest Fragrances box? Any guesses on what will be October’s new collection?
