Fragrance Review

20200620_133302

I know that we are always looking for a new scent or smell that could be our possible signature smell.  Well, LaPazions- I did the same thing but, there is a story that goes along with this… I have to take you back to my very early years right out of high school, going into university.  I had a good friend that worked as a “nanny” for a very well-known family.  The mother always smelled so divine, and I literally like fell head-over-heels for the fragrance that she wore.  I made it my mission to find out what it was and low and behold it was Antonia’s Flowers, well needless to say I couldn’t afford it on a high school/university budget… WHY!!!??

Now, we’ll fast forward to the present times, and now my favorite fragrance has been retired or no longer being produced… WHY!!?? Ergo, I started trying to locate perfumes that possibly had the same notes or familiar smells.  I purchased the fragrance NEST COCOA WOODS, needless to say, the notes aren’t anything close to “Antonia’s Flowers” (This is a face of disappointment).

Let’s get into the review, NEST COCOA WOODS FRAGRANCE is a havier scent, that I wasn’t really expecting since it was on the listing of perfumes that are comparable to Antonia’s Flowers.  The notes are rather strong of the bittersweet Cocoa (very predominant), also are notes wrapped in white sandalwood, Thai ginger, and dry sequoia woods (which feel like they are all competing for the front-line).  I’m not sure if it’s just my body-chemistry or what but, it didn’t smell that appealing.  With this being stated, I have to tell you all they really thought the packaging through completely.  I love the box; it’s a vibrant deep chocolate color with a floral print and the name placed in a signature way that catches your eye.

The bottle is just as stunning as the box, the thought that was placed in the production of this product is beyond beautiful.  The bottle is like a precise duplicate of the box, right down to the floral design, and the allure of keeping this on your beauty table is all there.

LaPazions, as you all know, I also am looking for the story behind the product, and by far, the Founder, Ms. Laura Slatkin, really delivers why she developed this fragrance.  The story is compelling and has you fall in love with the idea of NEST.  I may not like this particular perfume for myself, but I will be investigating other fragrances that are offered by this brand.  Here is a behind the scent video that details Ms. Slatkin’s passion for this fragrance:

 

I hope you all enjoyed my review, and I hope if you try this fragrance, you’ll drop me a note and let me know your thoughts.

XOXO
