Gift sets will ship April 22nd - April 30th. Limited inventory available!
"LADY DAY" LUXURY CANDLE
Inspired by the white gardenia she always wore in her hair, a luminous opening of lush green leaves, neroli blossom and sparkling bergamot lead to a velvet heart of creamy gardenia, jasmine petals and ylang ylang. Coffee flower adds a spicy nuance, and a warm, addictive base of coconut milk, sandalwood and vetiver provide the perfect finish to this intoxicating blend that is vibrant and full bodied, yet graceful and delicate. Just like Lady Day.
The “Billie” earrings pay tribute to Billie Holiday's classic elegance and style through their timeless yet edgy design. These earrings’ half moon silhouette is an update to the traditional button earrings that Billie Holiday wore so prominently in her career during the 1940’s and 50’s. Each is designed with Swarovski crystals featuring a bold 10 karat teardrop center stone with 40 black and smokey sand crystals, designed to be worn for any occasion.
BLACK ART DECO ELEGANT MATCHES
These Art Deco inspired matchboxes are made of reusable cardboard featuring the Harlem Candle Co. iconic logo in a black pattern design. One edge of the box has a strip to strike the matches and each box includes approximately 50 match sticks with black tips each measuring 4" long. These matches will make your candle lighting experience even more luxurious and are the perfect way to complement your favorite Harlem Candle Company candle!
