(read the full article here):

"Inspired by her love of fragrance, jazz and the richness of Harlem, founder Teri Johnson created Harlem Candle Co. as a way of telling stories through scent. Growing up, Johnson was transfixed with the idea of sensory memory, and how specific scents had the power to transport you to a certain time or place. Today, the brand focuses on transporting consumers to the vibrant past of Harlem with products named after some of the neighborhood's finest, like the Love by James Baldwin ceramic candle. Inspired by the activist's garden, the candle features soulful notes of rose and sandalwood."
