Jon Bresler and Vincent LaRouche are the founders of LAFCO New York. According to their website, they are the "purveyors and creators of the finest luxury articles & fragrance in the world," and they have boasted celebrity clients like David Bowie and Penelope Cruz.
However, they knew that an appearance on Oprah's Favorite Things would take their company to a new level, and they spent seven years trying to get their products onto her show.
Their persistence finally paid off. Their Claus Porto Soaps appeared on the 2007 Favorite Things show , and their sales reached one million dollars within thirty days. They returned to the list in 2010 with their House and Home Collection of candles, and Oprah Winfrey sang their praises, saying, "This is the perfect amount of scent and the perfect amount of wick."
