22K Gold James Baldwin "Love" Luxury Candle

$ 65

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.

James Baldwin Love

Loved sending this beautiful candle to a friend at a low point in their life. They couldn't say enough how it truly brightened their day and felt like a warm hug, even from afar.

Friend’s birthday

Bought this candle for a friend’s birthday and he loved it! The perfect gift.

The smell is amazing and the glass container is beautiful. Absolutely amazing!

Love is Exquisite

This has to be the most fragrant candle I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Upon opening the box, everything was packaged well, and before I even took the candle out of it's packaging, the fragrance was absolutely lovely! This candle was a Christmas gift for my niece, who loves James Baldwin; she is enjoying the candle as well. I also, purchased the travel tin candle for myself to try, and will now be purchasing the larger version of this candle. So, very worth it. Thank you Harlem Candle Co. for such a beautiful product. I look forward to many more purchases with you.


Look, I don't usually write reviews, but I could NOT pass up the opportunity to do so this time.
Every year, I send my clients a Holiday Thank You gift box, and this year at 2 in the morning a few weeks ago, I decided I wanted to make the boxes to be inclusive of all Black Owned businesses. Since I'm a candle person, I said I wonder if there are any black owned luxury candle lines, since I usually only purchase Bath and Body Works or Jo Malone Candles. I stumbled across this gem called the Harlem Candle Co, and let me tell you.. I am a forever customer now. I've ordered more than 50 candles in the last month, 30 mugs and a host of matches, ALL OF MY CLIENTS LOVED THE CANDLES and will be ordering my stock up supply for my own house, and my team as well. The scent, the nostalgia (even though I'm not from the era), just the entire vibe.. THANK YOU Harlem Candle Co...
