New NEST Apple Blossom Home Collection to Benefit Autism!, ,
Nothing to disclose
Laura Slatkin left the world of finance in 1992 to pursue a very different business venture: Slatkin & Co., a luxury home fragrance brand she founded with her husband, Harry Slatkin. It’s high-quality, smartly designed collections established it as the most successful American luxury home fragrance brand to-date, blazing a trail to a now-multi-billion dollar category in the beauty industry. In 2005, the couple sold the popular brand and Laura founded her own company, NEST New York, a leading designer and manufacturer of exceptionally crafted fragrances for the home and body. If you have never owned or even sniffed a NEST candle you are deprived. NEST products are superior in fragrance, packaging, and innovation. I ADORE the brand, in fact, have a bamboo NEST diffuser in my living room right now.
Shortly after giving birth to their twins Alexandra and David in 1999, David was diagnosed with severe autism. In response to this life-altering issue, Laura and Harry and a group of close colleagues founded NEXT for AUTISM, an organization that transforms the national landscape of services for people with autism by strategically designing, launching and supporting innovative programs.
Laura has had trouble connecting with her non-verbal son (now 20) but noticed when picking apples together, they seemed to be forming a bond. He gave her a few kisses. It was from this experience that Laura created the scent, Apple Blossom. Apple Blossom, with its luscious notes of crisp red apples enhanced by the aroma of apple blossoms and the warmth of white amber and cedarwood, is a reminder that the simplest moments can give us the greatest pleasures.
Take a look at Laura’s touching video:
The collection includes votive candles $16, the classic 8 oz candle. $42, a large 3-wick candle $68 and a 6 oz. reed diffuser $48.
NEST New York is donating 10% of the purchase price from each Apple Blossom product sold to NEXT for AUTISM, a non-profit organization that designs, launches, and supports innovative programs aimed at transforming the national landscape of services for people with autism. NEXT for AUTISM was co- founded by NEST New York founder, Laura Slatkin. For more information, visit nextforautism.org.
