Jason Wu Orchid Rain Candle by Nest Fragrances

Posted by on Jun 20 2012 | nest candles

Nest Jason Wu Orchid Rain CandleOnce again, the queen of scented candles, Laura Slatkin, has found the perfect partner for yet another remarkable product of NEST Fragrances. By collaborating with the world’s famous fashion designer, Jason Wu, NEST created Orchid Rain Candle whose strong flavor will certainly be one of the season’s favorites. Perfectly representing Wu’s feminine design aesthetics, the healing floral scent comes in the divine harmony with the exotic fruity note.

Since floral scents play an important role in Jason Wu’s creations, the renowned designer chose rare, white Cattleya orchids to give a dominant touch to the magnificent blend of fragrances. Behind the distressing floral scent of Jason Wu Orchid Rain Candle, there is a refreshing fruity note of nashi pear, pomegranate and goji berry flavors. The absolute delight comes with a blond birchwood and hints of pink pepper and coconut.

Creating such a great harmony of so many different aromas should be a true mastery, but Nest Fragrances had a perfect man for this job. They hired the master perfumer Christophe Laudamiel who had built the remarkable reputation by developing scents for some of the top brands. This time, his work is highlighted by Nest’s “know how” in making the high-end candles, as well as by the Jason Wu’s decoration on the porcelain candle vessel and the classic soft gray paper box. The milky-white vessel is beautified with the Wu’s signature gray, black, and white floral petal print with a light bisque finish. Besides, the Orchid Rain candle is topped with a stylish, gold-plated lid.

Every product of this luxury home fragrance manufacturer is made of natural, eco-friendly soy waxes that ensure clear and long-lasting burning. Jason Wu’s Orchid Rain candle is not an exception. It has the weight of 8.1 oz. and provides 50+ hours of burning.

Working with Laura Slatkin and her talented team was a great pleasure for Jason Wu who is a big brand’s fan. The founder of NEST Fragrances also highly appreciates the unique experience: “While reading a feature article about Jason Wu last February, I was delighted to learn that his favorite scented candles are from NEST Fragrances. After exchanging notes with Jason, I learned that he was very serious about home fragrances, which led us to this collaboration. Having worked closely with Jason on this project, I have come to respect his tireless work ethic, boundless creativity, and genuine kindness. He is a true visionary and a very special person”, said Laura Slatkin.

Nest Candles – New from Laura Slatkin

Posted by on Feb 26 2009 | nest candles

The new Nest Candles from Laura Slatkin are an exciting and welcome addition to the world of fine home fragrance and luxury candles. The founder and president of Slatkin & Co, Laura Slatkin, has created a line of luxuriously scented candles that were first sold in late 2008. This collection of twelve candles are designed to bring some affordable luxury to daily life. Unlike other candles featuring quality ingredients and fine fragrances, these candles are designed to be used each day. They still offer luxury but these irresistible fragrances won’t simply be tucked away in a drawer and forgotten.

These new candles offer the ultimate in comfort, luxury, elegance and value. Their name, Nest, is evocative of the essence Laura Slatkin wanted to embody with this line. Rather than offering simple luxury candles that would be used on a few occasions, she wanted to create products that people would enjoy each day, something that people could literally “feather their nest” with. With the Nest line, she has succeeded with candles that create a cozy and yet unique and welcoming ambience.

Just because Nest candles are created for everyday use, that does not mean that they are short on style or sophistication. Far from it. In fact, each candle in the collection is encased in a velvety soft red or black box embossed with the “N” of the nest line. Each of the candles in the Nest Candles by Laura Slatkin collection is encased in a thick striped glass with frosted and clear stripes. The look is timeless and elegant, sure to fit in with any décor.

If you are already familiar with the high quality of all Slatkin & Co products, you likely have some idea of the superb quality of the Nest Candles by Laura Slatkin. Each of the Nest Candles by Laura Slatkin uses the highest quality perfumes for a true scent that lasts as long as the candle does. Each candle is made from a carefully perfected recipe of soft, soy-blended, wax that ensures long burn time, clean burning and perfect scent release. When you burn this candle, the aroma is released consistently, for many hours of delicious scent. In fact, many of the Nest Candles by Laura Slatkin have a burn time of over 50 hours, making them a superlative value.

Of course, no look at the Nest Candles by Laura Slatkin would be complete without a look at the intoxicating fragrances offered in this collection. One of the most popular candles from this collection is the Nest Moss and Mint candle. The blended scents of apple blossom, mint, and muguet in this candle blend nicely with more subtle notes of vetiver and oak moss. Other popular scents in the collection include Bamboo, Beeswax and Whipped Cream, Freesia Kiwi, Grapefruit, Mahogany, Moroccan Amber, Orange Blossom, Periwinkle Hyacinth, Pink Jasmine, Wild Oats and Bourbon, and Wasabi Pear. You’re sure to find a new home fragrance you will adore among these wonderful and exotic scents. You can even combine more than one candle in the same room for a unique, personalized scent.
