Once 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.
