Hot Cocoa

Fall is just around the corner, so cue up those cool-weather shades and cozy knits. If you’re especially anxious to get a head start on the autumn season, add a spritz of Nest’s latest fragrance, Cocoa Woods, to your wrist or décolleté. The warm and spicy scent brims with notes of bittersweet cocoa, sequoia and white sandalwood, along with hints of Thai ginger and tiaré blossom. Adorned with a beautiful, dark floral print, even the bottle will help get you into the fall mood.
