James Webb

James Webb, a Beauty Stylist at our Fashion Valley store in San Diego, shares his three favorite candles to give and receive. They’re gender neutral and ready for warming the home with fragrance this winter.

diptyque Baies: This scent is currently gracing my living room with hints of red roses and currant leaves. It’s inviting, it’s distinctive and it’s a great way to welcome guests into my home.

NEST Fragrances Blue Garden: This candle is extremely special to me. NEST gives a portion of its proceeds to Autism Speaks. The notes are fresh and floral and leave you wanting more.

Voluspa Maison Noir – Crisp Champagne: Voluspa candles are my go-tos for gift giving. They’re packaged beautifully and priced just right. The Maison Noir scent has hints of vanilla and barrel oak. The sparkling brut champagne is a fun match for a NYE party hostess gift, but this candle is great for any occasion.

Beauty on the Scene

Sometimes, the most everyday objects can inspire your beauty routine. We asked three Beauty Stylists to take note of the colors and textures they see daily and to then pick a product on their radar that celebrates the beauty around them.

Freshly Polished: Lancôme ‘Vernis in Love – Aquatic Summer’ Fade Resistant Gloss Shine Nail Polish

“I’m so in love with these new bold shades from Lancôme’s summer collection,” says Candace Duong, Beauty Stylist at the Nordstrom South Shore Plaza store in Braintree, Massachusetts. “You have to try Simply Aqua. It’s such a fresh hue, you’ll want to wear it with your favorite floral dress! And the best part about Lancôme’s nail polish is that one brush stroke will cover most of your nail bed, so one coat will do the trick.”

Need to Put Out a Fire? Kiehl’s Since 1851 ‘Skin Rescuer’ Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator

“Let’s start first by talking about the texture. This product melts over your skin, leaving a cooling sensation. Great for reducing visible signs of stress, fatigue, dehydration, blotchiness and redness,” says James Webb, Beauty Stylist at the Nordstrom Fashion Valley store in San Diego, California. “I like to use this product in the morning after I wash my face and before I use my serum. It doesn’t leave your skin greasy, and when I use the Skin Rescuer on my clients, their makeup gildes smoothly and keeps everything in place.”

Scents To Make Your House a Home: NEST Fragrances ‘Grapefruit’ Scented Candle and NEST Fragrances Diffuser

“The new NEST candles, fragrance and diffusers are AH-MAZING!! These home scents are moderately priced for such a beautiful product,” says Tannah Ives, Beauty Stylist at the Nordstrom Thousand Oaks store in Thousand Oaks, California. “Not only do all the scents smell wonderful—they are perfect as gifts and great for any home or office!”
