Brand New: Introducing NEST New York x Gray Malin


a year ago

I’m thrilled to share with you my brand new candle collaboration with NEST New York! This limited-edition collection features some of my favorite photography on the outer packaging of three bestselling NEST New York fragrances that together take you on a sensorial journey which you can enjoy from the comfort of your home! By pairing my fine art photography with NEST’s best selling candle scents, you will truly be transported to these dreamy destinations and feel a serene sense of escape. Working directly with Laura Slatkin and the NEST design team, together we narrowed the design options down to three different series of mine: À la Plage, my aerial beach collection, La Dolce Vita, my collection captured all over Italy, and Gray Malin in Palm Beach, a collection that celebrates the timeless glamour of Palm Beach.

Each fragrance is housed in a very special limited-edition hand-blown glass vessel with color coordinated stripes, which we designed to be reminiscent of the umbrella patterns found in my aerial beach photography. See all three fragrances from the collection below and choose your favorite!

Amalfi Mint & Lemon

This fragrance and image pairing from the collection is meant to transport you to one of Italy’s most breathtaking destinations. I wanted to bring the scents in this signature candle to life, such as orange bergamot, zesty lemon, and fresh mint. By merging the visual of the image from Italy with these classic scents, I know this one will have all of you dreaming of a glamorous Mediterranean holiday, complete with gorgeous days spent at the beach, delicious Italian food, and the effortless joy that Italy provides you with.

Ocean Mist & Sea Salt

I truly believe that St. Barths is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. This photograph was taken from a door-less helicopter over the magical island while I captured the boats floating on beautiful blue water, the white sand, and the lush palm trees. The title of the scent completely encapsulates the feeling that this photograph evokes and together they create a totally unique and immersive experience. With hints of sea salt, white tea and coconut, the calming and serene fragrance is perfect for anyone looking for their home to feel like a relaxing island escape.

Coconut & Palm

The image that accompanies this collection was so fun to capture - I worked on a vintage inspired project at The Breakers Palm Beach and captured this image from the rooftop of the Porte Cochere looking back at the beautiful Florentine Fountain along the main entrance drive. It was so fun and challenging to direct models and use props like cars and bicycles and even dogs for this photo - it allowed me to create a feeling of vintage glamour that doesn’t ever go out of style! The timelessness of this image is complimented perfectly with the Coconut & Palm scent. The rich coconut scent along with bergamot, amber and a vanilla infused musk fit the opulence and classic glamour of Palm Beach.
