If Beale Street Could Talk - Scented Book Candle
Scent: Black Wood
Size: 12.5 oz.
This literary candle is based on an honest and stunning novel that inspired the award-winning major motion picture of the same name.
"A moving, painful story, so vividly human and so obviously based on the reality that it strikes us as timeless." –The New York Times Book Review.
The scent for this candle is called Black Wood. It is inspired by one of the novel's strongest symbols - the sculpture was given by Fonny to Tish's mother. It symbolizes the black male experience throughout If Beale Street Could Talk, not only in its physical similarities but also in what it signifies.
The Black Wood scent is masculine and strong, honest and straightforward.
