Harlem Candle Co., "Langston" Nightclub Map of Harlem, Luxury Candle
Part of the Nightclub Map of Harlem series, this limited edition "Langston" candle is black matte glass with a white design. It features the “Nightclub Map of Harlem” illustration by E. Simms Campbell from 1932 which portrays the speakeasies, nightclubs and musicians who were the shining lights during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920’s and 1930’s.
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 amber 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.
