Harlem Candle Company
"Lady Day" luxury travel candle 4 oz
When Billie Holiday sang the blues, the world was immediately seduced by her torchy tones. Throbbing, compelling and spellbinding… they called her Lady Day and she beckoned you closer and gripped you in your very soul. Dare to discover the smoky shadows and secret salons where she reigned supreme. Our Lady Day candle, evokes the irresistible excitement of her Harlem nights and joyful appetite for life.
Inspired by the white gardenia she always wore in her hair, a luminous opening of Lush Green Leaves, Neroli Blossom and Sparkling Bergamot lead to a velvet heart of Creamy Gardenia, Jasmine Petals and Ylang Ylang. Coffee Flower adds a spicy nuance, and a warm, addictive base of Coconut Milk, Sandalwood and Vetiver provide the perfect finish to this intoxicating blend that is vibrant and full bodied, yet graceful and delicate. Just like Lady Day.

Harlem candles are the best! The unique blend of fragrances is incredible!!
I loved it!
I like the way the candle burns and it doesn’t take long before you can smell the scent once it begins to burn. When ordering I didn’t think about the gardenia scent being the main note that you smell. But I realize that the gardenia was Lady Day’s signature statement. I can handle a subtle smell of gardenia but not as strong as this candle. For those who live gardenia scents, they will enjoy this candle.
I love this candle. Lady Day is a reallly pretty heady floral, and florals can be tricky to get right which speaks volumes. To my nose the scent profile is slightly sweet, green, creamy, light, and cheerful, while remaining sophisticated. I want to smell this scent all the time, it's uplifting and exquisite. The high quality of the candle's ingredients is readily apparent, from scent to wax, (100% soy wax is important to me), and the candle has nice throw. I ordered three candles to sample in the travel size: Speakeasy, Lenox, and Lady Day, (it's so nice to be able to try them at this size and price point before committing to larger sizes). They're all beautifully executed scents, (though Lenox is one that I wouldn't order again), and Lady Day was easily my favorite. I've ordered it in a larger size and imagine I'll go through it fairly quickly. I hope they never discontinue this scent. Beautiful homage to one of the greats.
I am purchasing candles to add to house warming or birthday gift baskets. Love this company and will be purchasing more for friends and family members.
