Nest Fragrances is on a scented roll and it continues into 2019. After 2018’s two strong perfume releases(both Nest Wisteria Blue and Cocoa Woods are simply gorgeous). Spearheaded by brand founder and creative director Laura Slatkin, Nest specializes in perfume, lifestyle bodycare and home fragrances. They engage renowned perfumers including Christophe Laudamiel, Jerome Epinette, and CaFleureBon’s perfumer of 2018- Rodrigo Flores-Roux. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try their first release of the New Year: Nest Wild Poppy, the 13th in the collection, is a fruity-floral gourmand that's perfectly timed for Coachella this April.

Jerome Epinette returns as the perfumer for Nest Wild Poppy, and he’s created a perfume that is like a breath of fresh air in the midst of a gloomy never-ending winter. Young, lively, and flirty, Wild Poppy opens with a veritable fruit basket full of perfectly ripe offerings; juicy pear and apricot with a hint of sweet, acidic raspberry. The fruit basket sits in front of a case of just picked roses and jasmine, both fresh from the garden and sprinkled with morning dew. Both fruit and flower are sun-kissed with luminosity and vibrate with life. There’s a slight tropical vibe as well, as if a guava or cherimoya is part of the mix, and this adds to the overall feeling of carefree happiness. The floral greenness keeps the fruit notes from becoming overly sweet, and the perceived caramel and musk help to ground the whole composition.

Wear Nest Wild Poppy to get a head-start on Spring, or buckle on your fanny pack, drape your vintage jewelry around your neck ,don your peasant top and denim jacket and head to the California desert. You’ll be happy you brought along Wild Poppy tucked into your fringed bag (the rollerball is perfect to travel with) when Jaden Smith asks you “what Is that perfume”?
Disclosure: Thank you so much to Nest Fragrances for my bottles of Nest Wild Poppy. The opinions are my own.
