Burns 50 Hours/$40.00
Valentine's Day is the day to get something beautiful. Whether it is for your significant other, your best friend, your wife, mother, whomever, they deserve a wow gift to let them know how much you love them. Something from Nest Fragrances says wow. This line is amazing. They have everything someone would need for home fragrance. I will give you a suggestion though, if you are giving a gift to a woman, try the Japanese Black Currant Classic Candle. You cannot go wrong there. This scent is truly wonderful. It is fruity and floral at the same time. It contains the rich essence of Japanese Black Currant with Mirabelle Plum, Kadota Fig and Sandalwood. You can smell the Sandalwood mixed with the Fig, Plum and Black Currant drifting through the air when the candle scent is wafting though your nose. It really is intoxicating.

This candle burns 50 hours. I now that seems impossible because most candles made with one wick do not last that long. However, I used this one for at least 5 hours and it barely made a dent in the candle. It definitely burned some but you could hardly tell though.  

Here is a photo of the candle before it is lit and to show you how bit it is, making it well worth the money spent on it:



NEST gives you explicit instructions on how to handle your candles with care to make them last longer. Here they are:


The environment in which a candle is burned and how the candle is maintained are the most significant factors in how it will perform. Following the instructions and tips listed below will help ensure optimal results when burning your NEST Fragrances candles.

  • Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, high flames, smoking or sooting. Use a sharp wick trimmer or scissors to trim the wick. Using a dull tool will split the wick's threads, causing it to "mushroom" excessively.
  • Center and straighten the wick after blowing out your candle. A wick that has migrated to the edge of the candle glass will cause the candle to tunnel and may cause the glass to crack and break if it burns near or against the wall of the candle. Use a candle wick snuffer or tweezers to gently straighten and guide the wick back to the candle’s center while the wax is still melted.
  • Burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, fans or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, smoking or sooting.
  • Before re-lighting a candle, let the candle cool completely (a candle generally takes approximately two hours to cool). Trim the wick and check for unwanted drafts.
  • Burn regular sized candles for 3-4 hours at a time.Small votives should only be burned for 2 hours at a time. Burning for shorter periods of time can cause the candle to “tunnel” burn (leaving excessive wax remaining on the container’s sides). Burning for longer periods of time than recommended can create soot on the glass or cause the glass to become extremely hot.
  • Burn candles in an ambient of 65 – 75 degrees F.Colder or warmer environments will significantly affect the candle’s burn performance.
  • When burning multiple candles , place the candles at least 8 inches apart. This ensures that the candles do not affect each other’s burn performance with the heat they generate.
  • If a candle is burning unevenly and the wick is centered, it is in a draft. Rotate the candle 90 degrees periodically to keep it burning uniformly, or move it to another location.
NEST has a whole collection of Japanese Black Currant items: diffuser reeds, liquid soap, larger candles. They have around 33 fragrances that I am sure you would find something that you would like. Buy NEST for you next gift.
