HW Picks: The Best Candles, According To Hyper Harlem Scented Candle Enthusiast

Like so many things, scented candles aren’t just for Christmas. To light a luxury candle when it’s still warm and bright outside, and to fill your living room with the smell of citrus and jasmine, and rum and oranges, and of gardens recently rained on, is one great luxury.

Here are some of the most lingering, most unusual (and gorgeous) scents, including Sugar Hill’s delicious uptown candle – it smells of crushed tomato vines. Burn them at home on a long lazy evening, then lie back and think of the blessings.


Sugar Hill Candle

Like the spirited neighborhood that inspires it, Sugar Hill reflects the ‘sweet life’ fostered by the Harlem Renaissance and that still remains an invigorating force today. A burst of fresh and sunny notes of Buddha’s hand lemon and bergamot mingle with delicate orange flower, bright neroli, and crisp lavender, tempered by honeyed vanilla and crystallized sugar for a deliciously sweet ending.

Price: $45.00

Better yet, these candles feature fun little decals to up the ambiance even more. 8.5 Oz Paraffin Wax & Palm Oil Blend with 100% Cotton Wick Gold Foil Accents with Wooden Lid 40 Hour Burn Time Molten Amber Scented.

Here at the Harlem World Magazine, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have HW Picks, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the ones we love. 

And while we’ve written before about all sorts of candles — including status candles, sculptural candles, and famous people’s favorite candles — here, we’ve rounded up the best candles as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Harlem’s Shop Nilu site. We’re starting with scented candles and working our way through pillars, tea lights and more.
