Harlem Candle Co.
Long-lasting candles infused with history can be found at Harlem Candle Co.
Harlem Candle Co.'s signature 12-ounce candles burn for up to 80 hours, but what sets them apart are the accompanying backstories. Each one is named for a historical spot and person with ties to Harlem, where the candles are also made.
For example, the Savoy candle highlights the iconic Savoy Ballroom. Evoke the glitzy and happening nightlife scene via rich notes of blackcurrant, mandarin, green apple, and juicy pear, along with Lily of the Valley and jasmine petals and sandalwood. The Ellington candle pays homage to the jazz legend with scents of bergamot, cinnamon, sage, lavender, crystalline amber, and more.
You can also shop from collections like the "Nightclub Map of Harlem" or opt for 4-ounce travel-size candles that come in gold tins.
