Fine Fragrance leader, NEST New York, invests to create a differentiated eCommerce experience

About NEST New York

A pioneer in the fine fragrance category, NEST New York’s collections transform the everyday through scents that transport, inspire and captivate the senses. NEST fragrances are widely distributed and sold in North America both in-store and online.

The Challenge

The team at NEST New York was looking for a way to differentiate their website experience. They wanted to give shoppers a unique and compelling reason to buy at 

NEST New York knew the first challenge to solve was to help shoppers understand the product, and the catalog. The second step is to create an unparalleled, personalized eCommerce experience that felt welcoming, warm, to get shoppers to come buy confidently with NEST.

Looking to replicate the in-store experience online, they needed to understand who the shopper was buying for, the occasion, the scent preference, the product type, and how all of these preferences come together to deliver the right product assortment for each customer. The process should also create buyer confidence, reduce friction at checkout, and deliver a world-class experience. 

Core Criteria for Evaluation 

When considering this new experience, NEST New York knew that they wanted to incorporate the human element as a way to set NEST apart from competitors. When exploring a human-centric experience, the ability to scale was also top of mind. 

They thought this human element should complement their bespoke product selection and work in tandem to not only yield a refined customer experience, but more revenue for the company.

NEST New York also prioritized a quick and efficient onboarding, integrating easily with all their systems. The NEST New York Team partnered with Humankind to bring this differentiated eCommerce experience to life.
