Harlem Candle Company
HCC x The Met: Medieval Garden Luxury Candle
Set high upon a lush hill overlooking the Hudson River and gazing majestically upon Harlem, The Met Cloisters is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The spectacular enclosed gardens create a meditative environment teeming with hundreds of herbs and flowers that would have grown during the Middle Ages. This serene, peaceful setting is the inspiration for our MEDIEVAL GARDEN candle.
MEDIEVAL GARDEN pays tribute to The Met Cloisters with a vibrant opening of juicy pomegranate, a symbol of joyful fruitfulness, melding beautifully with the calming and cleansing effect of frankincense and myrrh. Rose de Mai, black currant, and olibanum form a dramatic heart, as resinous cedarwood tempered by golden amber and musk, brings a warm, sensual finish to this very personal spiritual blend.
Middle: Rose de Mai, Black currant, Olibanum
Base: Cedarwood, Amber, Musk
Diameter: 3.25 in

Subtle fragrance; not overwhelming. Women and men will enjoy this candle.
Langston, Ellington, Speakeasy, and Josephine are my favorites. This scent is up there with those, for me. It is a much lighter scent than those but it definitely leaves its mark.
As soon as I opened the candle, the scent filled my nose and WOW! The smell is fruity, but not too much. I love to light it at the end of the day to relax. Aromatherapy at its best.
As always, Harlem does not disappoint. Exquisite!
