“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 a son who was diagnosed with autism.
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 embarking on a national tour, visiting Neiman Marcus stores in cities in which there are Autism Speaks Walks. She will be making personal appearances in King of Prussia, PA; Chicago; Atlanta; Beverly Hills; Coral Gables, FL and St. Louis.
