PROJECT ART Home Fragrance by NEST

Fall brings new home scent line PROJECT ART created by Laura Slatkin of NEST fragrances .

These are highly scented products across the board. When using the diffuser I took several reeds out to get less scent and I am getting  great throw from the large candle without it even burning. 

I have the candles in Orange Kumquat, a delicious , juicy, orange tropical fruit scent, and Mint Leaves and Lime, which is refreshing mint with just a bit of zesty lime in there. My  hand soap/lotion is in  Lemon Verbena. My love of citrus is well documented here,  and these pack a serious tart , true, strong lemon scent. The hand lotion is lightly moisturizing and even though the scent is strong it doesn't stay too long on hands.

The line brings great quality at a good price point and to stores accessible to everyone.

Previously NEST was mainly at Bergdorfs  and Neimans. Laura Slatkin specifically wanted to bring these to consumers looking for higher quality at a  better price. With availabilty at Bed,Bath and Hallmark stores, I think she's achieved that. 
It's early, but think holiday gifts. If there's a candle lover on your list ( and who doesn't know at least 1) these will be a perfect present.
