"Langston" luxury candle

The Langston candle celebrates elements of the jazz poets creative vision with fragrance accords reflecting some of the strong symbols in his life….

The worn vintage leather of his favorite armchair, aromatic tobacco laced with a hint of clove and vanilla from the pipes of the neighborhood men, and the smell of ambery incense that recalls his many visits to churches in Mexico.

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.

The past lives in the present

When this candle burns, I am transported. Now 74 and happily married, years ago this candle would be burning in my bachelor apartment as I listened to Johnny Hodges while waiting for guest (s) . My daughter turned me on to Harlem Candle. She knew I would love your products and the poetry that goes into your blending of fragrances.

Can a candle be an investment? YES

The quality of these candles are superb. I initially received a Langston candle as a gift and was so pleasantly surprised that I’ve become a Harlem Candle customer for life. Im so impressed with the attention to detail on the inside of the box, which gives a vivid depiction of Harlem and the entertainment industry during the Renaissance. I’m a candle head, musician and the queen of self care. So candles are an essential part of my life. These candles burn slow and even. Not to mention, they burn all the way down to the end of the wax leaving not much that gets wasted towards the end of the burn. The scent also continues to linger in the air hours after you blow out the wick. These candles will remain on my list of favorite things to give or receive. Great investment. They’re pricey but worth every cent!

Smooth, Sophisticated -- enjoy with a bourbon in hand on a fine evening

Amazing scent -- it brings Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille fused with Ombre Leather to my brain. The two wick candles burn very cleanly -- no tunneling, very easy care. The Langston is my go-to candle after a long day at work. Light the candle and sip on some Four Roses, play some music and restrict your lightning to ambience only...drift away. I'll be buying again.

My husband LOVES his christmas gift!

I purchased the candles and stuffer for my husband for Christmas and when I told him about the review he said "Tell them I LOVE everything!" For me, everything from the nod to our history to the candle fragrance to the packaging is exquisite! Congratulations on a stellar product.
