"Langston" luxury travel candle 4 oz
The Langston candle celebrates elements of the jazz poet’s creative vision with fragrance accords reflecting some of the strong symbols in his life….
The worn vintage leather of his favorite armchair, aromatic tobacco laced with a hint of clove and vanilla from the pipes of the neighborhood men, and the smell of ambery incense that recalls his many visits to churches in Mexico.
A dramatic heart of heady jasmine and a warm background of resinous sandalwood round out this deeply personal blend that perfectly evokes Langston Hughes, a true Renaissance man.
Middle: Jasmine, Cade
Base: Vanilla, Sandalwood, Amber
I was able to fold all of my family's laundry with loving care because of the calming fragrance of Langston. Thank you!
I loved the nostalgic aroma this candle has. I will definitely purchase a full size!
I've been seduced by poetic language to describe candle scents online before and was disappointed with the reality, but when I read that the Langston candle featured notes like amber, tobacco, clove, nutmeg, leather, and sandalwood, I got all my hopes up anyway. If it was even half as irresistable as it sounded, I'd be happy. And man, it exceeded every expectation. It smells warm and comforting and also sexy and soulful. It provides the perfect atmosphere for rainy nights.
While the fragrance is a bit masculine for my taste, the candle itself is beautiful. It would make a lovely gift for a literary friend (or yourself).
Sooooo gooooood. Smells like writing in a study in the 1930s
