"Lifestyle expert Teri Johnson is the creative force behind Harlem Candle Company, a brand inspired by her appreciation for Harlem's rich history. Her St. Nicholas candle, which regularly sells out, smells like freshly baked gingerbread."
"Since 2014, Harlem Candle Co. has been making candles that (quite literally) shine a light on Harlem. This scent pays homage to the neighborhood's beloved St. Nicholas Avenue and Santa Claus. Available in a vibrant canister—which means it'll match your holiday decor—the candle's notes of ginger, pine, cedar, and cinnamon bark create that perfect mix of sweet and sylvan."
"Gift the candle-loving man in your life the opportunity to wax poetically with Harlem Candle Company’s ‘Langston’ Luxury Candle. The masculine blue jar boasts an elegant label with gold lettering highlighting the notes tobacco and amber. The scent is described as 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.'"
"If you don't have a fireplace, candles are the next best thing. (They might even be better, because you don't have to deal with actual logs and other intimidating outdoor things.) I love this candle because it has notes of spruce, pine needles, and fir balsam—so basically, the holy trinity of Christmas tree smells. Grab a match and burn, baby, burn."
"If you love dates at fancy cocktail bars, but would much rather stay at home, Harlem Candle Co. makes a gorgeous candle that releases a blend of blackcurrant, tart mandarin, crisp green apple, juicy pear, and more in a jar that doubles as its own cocktail glass after it's fully used."
