Inspired by the Novel and Motion Picture

"If Beale Street Could Talk"

"Love" Inspired by James Baldwin luxury candle (large 12 oz)
Boldly emotional and clairvoyantly perceptive, James Baldwin traversed the globe from Harlem to Provence in search of the idea and feeling of love and he challenged the characters in his stories to embark on their own personal quest.
 
Inspired by his book and the new motion picture ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’, the LOVE candle represents the dramatic romantic theme with both masculine and feminine accords melding beautifully together. An ethereal, fresh opening of crisp apple and watery green notes, this fragrance evolves with an unexpected nuance of aromatic elemi and spicy clove.
 
The sensual heart of lush rose celebrates Baldwin’s deep affection for his garden in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, while a base of smoky sandalwood brings warmth and depth to this enigmatic and highly personal blend.
