Scent details: 
Boldly emotional and clairvoyantly perceptive, James Baldwin traversed the globe from Harlem to Provence in search of the idea and feeling of love and he challenged the characters in his stories to embark on their own personal quest.
Inspired by his book and the new motion picture ‘If Beale Street Could Talk, the LOVE candle represents the dramatic romantic theme with both masculine and feminine accords melding beautifully together. An ethereal, fresh opening of crisp apple and watery green notes, this fragrance evolves with an unexpected nuance of aromatic elemi and spicy clove.
The sensual heart of lush rose celebrates Baldwin’s deep affection for his garden in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, while a base of smoky sandalwood brings warmth and depth to this enigmatic and highly personal blend.

Purchased for my sister because the James Baldwin Love candle is one of her favorites from Harlem Candle. Have purchased for her before but not in the purple jar. She loves purple so I had to buy it again in the purple jar and she loves it!


This candle is my first Harlem Candle purchase. The presentation of the candle/ packaging is stunning. Purple is my favorite color, so I had to try this limited edition of the Love fragrance first. I was able to smell the candle before I even took it out of the box. It’s a beautiful fresh rose scent, very elegant and not overpowering. (I’m picky about rose scents, most of them are not for me). I like this candle in my bedroom, although some may prefer it in a bathroom. The throw is wonderful, I was able to really smell the candle after about 15 minutes of it burning. The candle looks exactly as it’s pictured on the site, just imagine a gorgeous glow when it’s actually lit. Very pleased with my purchase, I’ll be back for more!

Stunning Candle

This candle glows so seductively that I only burn it when I LOVE is the theme of the night. The fragrance is so luxurious and I am beyond happy that I was able to get this limited edition version of my favorite scent inspired by one of my favorite Harlem Renaissance icons.
