Harlem Candle Co.
Though a native Texan, Teri Johnson’s admiration for her permanent home in New York led to the birth of Harlem Candle Co. in 2014. The brand is a manifestation of her love affair with fragrance, jazz, and Harlem’s rich history—and what better way to tell it than through specialty scents? Teri’s refreshing candle blends prove to be novels in themselves, whether she’s honoring vibrant areas of the neighborhood and its past, like Sugar Hill and Lenox Avenue, or iconic musicians Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington (the “Ellington” is our personal favorite). The pop-up also features many of Harlem Candle Company’s bestsellers, including the “Frederick” candle, an homage to Frederick Douglass and his childhood, made with uplifting aromas such as bergamot and yuzu.
