Harlem Candle Company
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.
So inspired by the fragrances she's experienced in the 66 countries she visited, Teri desired to create a sensory experience that could take people on a journey that inspires creativity, joy and love. After making over a thousand candles in her kitchen in less than one year, she collaborated with an award-winning chemist and fragrance industry veteran who are helping her position the Harlem Candle Company as a global brand.
Each candle is specially handcrafted using top grade soy blend wax and infused with one of a kind fragrance oils designed by a team of globally recognized expert perfumers. Like music, the top, middle, and base notes of each Harlem candle tells a story while taking you on an olfactory journey through time and place. Drawing on inspiration from legends like Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday, the subtle scents and soft glows from Harlem candles instantly enhance your space while creating a sense of comfort and luxury.
The Harlem Candle Company values and pays homage to how Harlem has blessed the world with cultural luminaries, creative vision and style in the story of America. The 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.
