Harlem Candle Company


Teri Johnson is an entrepreneur and adventurer who brings her experience to life through storytelling and luxury products. A life-long traveler, Teri has visited 68 countries learning about the rich cultures of the world while working as a travel and lifestyle expert for various television and digital platforms. During her travels, Teri experienced an array of different scents and developed a passion and obsession for beautiful and evocative fragrances that have the power to transport you to a different time and place.

This sparked an idea to create a luxury home fragrance company inspired by her neighborhood of Harlem, specifically during the Harlem Renaissance period. She founded the Harlem Candle Co in 2014 and now has ten exquisite fragrances in the collection. Teri’s work with some of the world's most innovative perfumers has helped her grow the brand’s popularity on an international level and has led to the brand’s launch in Bloomingdale's in 2018. She has also partnered with Kodak on a collection of candles and created a signature candle for the award winning film, "If Beale Street Could Talk".
