Harlem Candle Company
"Speakeasy" Luxury Candle
Our newest fragrance in the collection evokes the night, its mystery and forbidden touch…Speakeasy.
People would slip into hidden clubs, tucked behind storefronts. The thrill of the forbidden was unmatched—embodied by sensual flavors of vanilla and dark chocolate. The simple nod of a doorman would whisk you away to an unfamiliar world: dark, loud, pulsing with excitement.
Auras of palo santo, bourbon, and tobacco swirled the gambling tables where men rotated between cocktails and cigars. On the dance floor, perfumes of swaying women infused the air, creating a sweet elixir of licorice and plum blossom.
Middle: Saffron, Licorice, Plum blossom, Tobacco leaves
Base: Palo santo, Patchouli, Vanilla, Dark chocolate
This has very quickly become one of my favorite candles from my new favorite candle company (a few minutes prior to writing this review, I sent 4 friends the ''holiday' candle as gifts). I love a gourmand candle that is not too "foody" and this fits the bill. The Cardamom and Incense notes are apparent while the Tobacco leaves, Palo santo and Patchouli notes are more subtle, giving this candle an earthy feel. The Vanilla and Dark chocolate notes add a touch of sweetness and when I burned it during a family dinner, My sister-in-law remarked that the candle was very much a Dinah (my name) scent. The throw is fantastic....rivaling some of the best high end niche brands on the market. The burn is clean and the jewel toned glass is so lovely when lit. It's a feast for the senses with a myriad of goodness all the way around.
After reading the notes on this candle I knew it would be a favorite. It did not disappoint. Speakeasy is a well-balanced blend of the masculine and feminine. Love the way the woody and gourmand notes complement each other.
A little too masculine for my taste but the candle is stunning and shipping was fast!
Speakeasy smells amazing!
This candle brightens up my apartment space leaving it feeling cozy yet elevated in a elegant and glamorous way. The scent is sweet, but not overly so and complex. The scent notes in the product description are accurate!
