Harlem Candle Company

"Frederick" luxury candle

$ 48

Inspired by Frederick Douglass, our Frederick candle pays loving tribute to a brave and charismatic man who passionately followed his dream of a world of freedom for all.

A bronze statue commemorating his life as an abolitionist and champion of women’s rights stands tall as the Gateway to Harlem anchored at the northwest corner of Central Park.  

Infused with fruits and botanicals, we’ve re-imagined the orangerie from Douglass’s childhood to include juicy bergamot, yuzu, and fresh green cardamom which sets the stage for a heart of vanilla orchid, cypress, and ginger blossom. A liberating base of suede, sandalwood and tonka bean add warmth and depth to this elegant and uplifting blend.

In Love with Frederick

Frederick is the most soothing and addictive candle I’ve ever experienced. I usually light it in the evening and the next morning when I wake up, I can smell it lingering in my home. The scent is complex and elegant and I am in awe that the Harlem Candle Co has yet again, created a masterpiece.

I LOVE my candle!
I bought it for the man I love who was born and raised in Harlem but doesn't live there any more.
Wanted him to have a small comfort from home
Great smell... Great look !!!

Made My Friend's Day

My friend recently lost one of her closest high school friends. I sent her this candle in sympathy and she was over the moon. She was thrilled to receive a candle from a black owned business and loved the design and scent. Thank you so so much!


This candle is incredible. The scent takes to another place and time..,
