Founded in 2014, The Harlem Candle Company was born in the home of travel and lifestyle expert Teri Johnson. So inspired by the fragrances she's experienced in the 68 countries she visited, Teri desired to create a sensory experience that could take people on a journey to inspire creativity, joy and love. After making over a thousand candles in her kitchen, in less than one year, she collaborated with a world-renowned fragrance house, an expert chemist and fragrance industry veteran who have helped her grow the Harlem Candle Company into a global brand.
Each Harlem Candle is infused with fragrance notes that create a perfect harmony of top, middle and base notes that sing, dance and celebrate the old and new Harlem Renaissance. As a company we value and pay homage to how Harlem has blessed the world with cultural luminaries, creative vision and style in the story of America.
The Harlem Candle Company takes on the tradition of this cultural light, packaging this history into curated scents that continue the tradition of Harlem as the light of the world.
Within each candle, you will find the enduring gifts of peace, love, abundance, creativity and of course, light, intended to carry forth to the world over. May this treasure connect with you and enhance your journey forever.
The candles are inspired by the Harlem Renaissance, and celebrate the lives of such jazz legends as Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday and Josephine Baker, all of whom performed in Harlem in the 1920’s and 30’s. The candles also pay homage to iconic places like Savoy Ballroom and the Sugar Hill neighborhood.
Our soy candles evoke the decadence of Harlem's nightclubs and entertainers while leaving a melodic impression in your home with opulent, luxurious scents with more than 80 hours of burn time from our double-wick soy candles.
