When Duke Ellington played Harlem for the first time back in 1927, his jazz was sizzling hot, his vibe was cooler than cool, and no one had ever heard anything like it. He infused the neighborhood and the world with a new kind of energy, and music was changed forever.
The Ellington Candle pays loving tribute to this vibrant legend with top notes of juicy bergamot, tangy cinnamon and crisp clary sage, a luminous heart of Lily of the Valley, heady rose and fresh lavender, and a warm swinging base of spicy patchouli, crystalline amber and soft skin musk.Top: Bergamot, Cinnamon, Clary Sage
Bottom: Patchouli, Amber, Musk
$54.00From Harlem’s hottest jazz clubs to Broadway to the Follies-Bergère in Paris, Josephine Baker“--The Bronze Goddess”--made a sensational impact, captured perfectly in this opulent luxurious scent. A bright citrus opening of vibrant bergamot blends magnificently with an emotional heart of lush Moroccan Rose and Indian Jasmine, while a velvet background of warm liquid amber, sweet Tonka bean and precious sandalwood provides a beautiful finish as exquisite as Josephine herself.
The Harlem Renaissance was a cultural, social and artistic explosion that centered in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s, pushing creative boundaries for self-expression to new and exciting heights. Bold yet delicate at once, the Renaissance Candle pays homage to this thriving movement with an inspired mix of fresh tea leaves, sparkling yuzu, and cardamom gracefully leading to a velvet heart of Tonka bean, heliotrope and wild orchid blossoms.
