22K Gold James Baldwin "Love" Luxury Candle

$ 60

This limited-edition candle features the quote "Love Brought You Here" by James Baldwin from the novel and film If Beale Street Could Talk.

After the candles finishes, it becomes a dazzling cocktail glass!

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.

A lovely candle to break open on Valentine’s Day.

My partner and I are big fans of Harlem Candle Co., and this was our first time doing the special 22k Gold cocktail glass candles! The Baldwin was so nice for Valentine’s Day, and I love to use it on my personal day or days off of work. Highly recommend!


This candle is beautiful when it’s unlit and stunning when lit. The rose scent is beautiful and layered - it fills the room but keeps a lightness to it - doesn’t overpower as some rose scents can. This candle sets a beautiful mood and I’m thrilled that I purchased it - it will be a repeat buy.

A Love Supreme

I patiently waited for the James Baldwin love candle to come back in stock. It is beautiful. I have it next to a James Baldwin print so it has become my James Baldwin appreciation spot. “Love brought you here.”

Filled Every Room

I lit Love for about 2 hours and the fragrance filled my entire home and lasted hours. It is fabulous and worth every penny spent. Invest in a Harlem Candle Co. product. You won’t regret it.
