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
Okay so I’ve gotten into candles since we are all stuck at home and trying to make our homes more comfortable. I must say I’ve never smelled a candle like this. It has the perfect smoky sultry sexy scent and its unisex! Not your typical floral cutesy candle. This is for the GROWN and SEXY. I have gone on to purchase more candles to see what else HCC has to offer but I will be repurchasing Speakeasy most definitely!
Absolutely love the scent! I want to order another one but I need to make sure I try them all!
I have recommended this candle to soooo many people. On YouTube, on Instagram .. personally .. you name it ! This candle smells divine !!! I have never bought a candle so potent before. I’ve spent a lot of money on candles from numerous luxury brands and none quite compare to Harlem candle co. These candles can be smelled throughout my entire apartment and my apartment isn’t small. I smelled this candle through the box when opening it and knew it would be special ! Glad I purchased and will continue to.
The smell of this candle hugs my entire apartment but doesn’t overpower (because the feminine and masculine tones balance each other it).
If the song “secret garden” by Quincy Jones & co were a candle, this would be it.
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.
