For Laura Slatkin, founder and chief executive officer of Nest Fragrances, her home candle business has blossomed into a fine-fragrance player — and perhaps beyond.
With sales increasing by double digits in almost every door where the brand is sold, Slatkin told WWD she is looking to open a stand-alone New York City flagship and will launch a “completely new” beauty category in September 2015. She is also introducing two new scents by storied perfumers Christophe Laudamiel and Jerome Epinette to 182 Sephora doors in the U.S. and Canada, expanding the brand’s exclusive fragrance range with the beauty retailer.
