The Harlem Candle Co. is a luxury home fragrance brand specializing in scented candles inspired by the richness of Harlem. Founded in 2014 by travel and lifestyle expert Teri Johnson, the Harlem Candle Company is the manifestation of her love affair with fragrance, jazz, and Harlem.
Harlem Candle Company is one of our favorite luxury candle companies, seated in the heart of Harlem. The spirit and essence of Harlem is captured in amazingly beautiful and unique scent blends. The candles are created with a soy wax blend that has a slow, long burn time and excellent scent throw. We are particularly enthralled with the gorgeous candle vessels – these candles will look stunning on your work desk long after the scented wax is gone!
Our favorite way to shop Harlem Candle Company is by collection. The Harlem Renaissance Collection includes the iconic Josephine candle which pays tribute to legendary Josephine Baker. Here you’ll also find wonders such as Ellington, Lady Day, and Lenox. Step up to the Ceramic Gold Collection and you’ll find signature scents in absolutely gorgeous ceramic vessels, a floral pattern, and a nightclub map of Harlem!
If you need to sample scents before making a committment, the Travel Tin Collection is the place to start. The 4oz candles are perfect way to get a good sense of their complex fragrances. This company also carries reed diffusers, room sprays, and candle accessories to round out your home fragrance journey. Even their matchbooks are drool-worthy. The attention to detail and luxurious feel is not left unnoticed. It’s no wonder Harlem Candle Company has made our list of one of the best candle companies in New York!
