Nest Fragrances is rolling out it Blue Garden Luxury Gift Set to benefit Autism Speaks. The set will be at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and select specialty boutiques across the US, and will sold also for Mother’s Day, according to the luxury candle and fragrance specialist.
 
 “Our Blue Garden Luxury Gift Set celebrates Autism Awareness Month and Mother's Day with a fragrance so beautiful it reminds us that, no matter what challenges we are faced with, there are so many wonderful things in life for which we are grateful,” said Laura Slatkin, founder and CEO of NEST Fragrances. Slatkin is also a board member of Autism Speaks and has son who was diagnosed with autism.
 
“Blue Garden is an exquisite blend of blue hydrangea, hyacinth and forget-me-nots, with fresh green notes and a dew drop accord. It reminds me of a perfect and lush floral garden in full bloom. It represents hope and change and every time I smell it I think of my son, David.”
 
In 2006, Slatkin co-founded her own non-profit organization, New York Collaborates for Autism, shortly after her son, David, was diagnosed as being severely autistic. In 2010, Laura created the Blue Garden Candle in honor of David and to benefit Autism Speaks.
 
Slatkin is is embarking on national tour, visiting Neiman Marcus stores across the country in which there are Autism Speaks Walks.
 
“We are affectionately calling it ‘The Blue Garden Tour’. Like me, mothers are often faced with so many obstacles as they endeavor to build a family, and you just never know what issues you will face and what challenges you will encounter along the way. This April and May, I want to celebrate all the mothers who dig deep and find the courage to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others.”
 
Slatkin will be making personal appearances  in King of Prussia, PA, Chicago, Atlanta, Beverly Hills,  Coral Gables, FL and St. Louis.
