Nekisse Luxury Candle - Ethiopian Coffee, Blueberry, Buttery Pastry... Original Formula
Nekisse Luxury Candle - NEW!
Deep, rich Ethiopian coffee studded with ripe blueberries & buttery pastry crumbs
We are complete & utter coffee snobs in our household, thanks to the amazing folks at Square One Coffee in Lancaster, PA. Jess & Josh travel the world to find the most incredible fair-trade coffee beans, bring them back to PA, & roast them to perfection every time. Their staff is fantastic, their coffee delicious, & their passion infectious. Check them out at http://www.squareonecoffee.com/
Nekisse (the scent) is a direct homage to Nekisse (the coffee). You know those tasting notes on specialty coffee bags, the ones that say ridiculous things like "chewy, with notes of cherry, Meyer lemon & toffee"? With Square One Coffee, you REALLY TASTE THOSE THINGS. It's pretty amazing. Nekisse (the coffee) blew us away with its buttery, blueberry aroma & perfectly smooth acidity. (See? Coffee snobs.)
Nekisse (the scent) is a blend of dark coffee, sweet blueberry & vanilla pastry to echo the scent of the beans themselves. It's essentially the smell of a perfect coffee house breakfast, rich & sweet & oh heck yes.

*Please use caution around open flame, taking care to keep your candle away from drafts, loose clothing & fabric, pets & children. Melted wax is hot! Don't stick your tongue (or any other body part) in it! Do NOT add water to your candle, & do not leave your candle unattended. Be safe :)

I bought this recently but haven't had the heart to burn it yet; it's too pretty how it is! My god that glitter. Smells amazing as always...I don't really care for coffee, but the blueberry and buttery pastry crumbs get me every time. Love this scent as a sorbetto too.
Strong, clean burn

I've been burning this one for about three hours now. It's lovely to look at with the color and the glitter, and the flame has been strong without smoking or drowning, though it has yet to fully pool. It smells like blueberry coffee at a decent strength; I can smell it in the room I am in (open floor plan/vaulted ceiling) and a little into the next, which is great for a candle of this size. I'd say it has middle of the road strength, and I am quote happy with my purchase.
