Harlem Candle Company
"Langston" luxury travel candle 4 oz
The Langston candle celebrates elements of the jazz poet’s 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.
Middle: Jasmine, Cade
Base: Vanilla, Sandalwood, Amber
Will order again for sure
Langston Hughes is one of my all-time favorite poets and the elements used in this candle are some of my all-time favorite scents, so this was a no-brainer purchase. And it is worth every penny. This is a wonderful, well-balanced warm scent: not too sweet, not too smoky, and not too heavy. It's a beautiful mix of tobacco, resins, incense, and leather. The jasmine and bergamot add a nice bit of crisp lightness. As someone else already pointed out: it smells like your elegant, sophisticated grandfather's library and office. My only regret is that I didn't just go for it, splurge, and buy the full sized version of this scent.
Mix of Tobacco and leather, one of Harlem’s best scents. A must try if you are a fan!
This a soft & gentle aroma that smells delightful.
I found you from the candle curator brother on Instagram. He was right and I love you!
