Nest Midnight Fleur Review
Lately, I have been hearing a lot of buzz from the beauty community about Nest Fragrances so I was delighted to have the opportunity to try out one of its best-selling scents, the Midnight Fleur Eau de Parfum ($30 CAD for 8.5ml or $78 CAD for 50ml). Described as an "bold, irresistible, and purely sensual" scent, Midnight Fleur is made with the perfect blend of "exotic woods, patchouli, black amber" and florals.

Bottle Design:
The rollerball version of the scent comes in a glass bottle that's been tinted black. There is a label over the bottle and it features the artwork of the 18th century artist Mary Delany. The rollerball applicator actually dispenses quite a lot of product so do be cautious when rubbing it against the skin. The cap is printed with the Nest logo. The overall vibe of the bottle design feels very Victorian age and perhaps a bit old fashioned. The full sized bottle has a similar design but it looks a lot sleeker.

The Scent:
Midnight Fleur is described as a woody floral.

Top Notes:
Middle Notes: Vanilla Orchid, Exotic Woods
Base Notes: Patchouli, Black Amber

Interestingly, despite the fact that the Midnight Fleur has no fruity notes, the first thing I pick up when I sniff this scent is a sweet but slightly acidic blend of berries. The jasmine, patchouli, and vanilla orchid soon follows and the woodiness creates a warm, almost creamy backdrop. This scent is quite strong and unique. To me, it's very sweet and sensuous and it's a scent that can worn any time in the year.

If you are looking for something light and refreshing, then Midnight Fleur is not for you. But if you want a rich, creamy, and complex, woody floral, then definitely give this one a sniff. You will find that it stands out against many other woody floral fragrances on the market.

Nest Fragrances is available in stores and online at Murale and Sephora.
