Time Out says
It just doesn’t feel like home without the pleasant aroma from your NEST candle lingering in the air. Chances are you scored your wick online or at one of the lifestyle fragrance brand’s legendary sales in collaboration with 260 Sample Sale. But now, New Yorkers have an official location where they can not only smell but test all the NEST artifacts they desire.
The first-ever NEST flagship store opened in the prime shopping mecca of Soho just in time for you to find your new spring scent. Easily navigate your way through the 1,140-square-foot space, which is decked out to resemble a magical European garden and houses the brand’s entire portfolio of Home, Fine Fragrance and and Bodycare Collection inside the space.
The store’s interior walls were custom-made with three-dimensional flora embellishments by botanical artists Mrs. Delany and Ernst Haeckel. And much like the fragrances themselves, entering the shop feels as if you’ve been transported to another realm with gimmicks (i.e. the upside down garden fixture ascending from the ceiling) that tickle your sense of wonder and imagination.
From liquid soaps and hand lotions to lip balms made with SPF 15 and candles that can burn for up to 350 hours, there is plenty to sniff and discover. And we’d be shocked if you left without finding a product you weren’t itching to wear, burn or diffuse immediately.
