8. OR A CANDLE FROM HARLEM CANDLE COMPANY THAT JUST EXUDES SOPHISTICATED COZINESS. WHEN THEY'RE DONE BURNING THE CANDLE BELOW, IT CAN BE TRANSFORMED INTO A FANCY COCKTAIL GLASS.
This is a Black woman-owned company founded in 2014 by Teri Johnson to help embody her love of jazz music and Harlem.
Here's what my colleague Sally Elshorafa says about her candles from Harlem Candle Company. "The soy vegetable wax blend candles are made with one-of-a-kind fragrance oils. I recently burned through a tin of the Holiday scent and it lasted SO much longer than other candle tins of that size. I'm currently on the Speakeasy candle that smells incredibly luxurious and rich. If I'm awake and in my apartment, a candle is lit. But I think I'll ration the Speakeasy beaut to keep it around even longer."
