The Scent:

Step back in time with Flame Noir Candle Co.’s original, 52nd St. Speakeasy soy candle inspired by private investigator Nick Charles. Our all-natural, handmade, lead-free scented candle features a top shelf blend of warm, fragrant tobacco, wittily intertwined with an ample dose of sweet and spicy bourbon whiskey.

The Scene:

Give the secret knock and take a trip to 52nd St. Speakeasy, Manhattan, 1933. Let your imagination run wild as you enter the dimly lit room by a steep flight of stairs and are greeted by a blast of red hot jazz from the house band banging away at the back of the room.

Move past the packed dance floor, where dozens of couples do the Lindy Hop and the Varsity Drag. Skirts are fanning and suspenders are showing. Cuff links are discarded and sleeves are rolled up.

Order a Manhattan and take a seat at the bar next to half-tied, retired detective Nick Charles. He sits lopsided on his stool, lining up drinks and then joyfully knocking them down. Ain’t life grand? It just don’t get snazzier than this, pally!

Scent Notes:

52nd St. Speakeasy soy candle scent notes are warm tobacco, bourbon whiskey, brown sugar, and caramel with hints of vanilla

Scent Strength:


Scent Nose:

Aromatic, spicy bourbon whiskey top notes mingle with mild and fragrant tobacco middle notes, ending with hints of caramel and sweet, brown sugar for an outcome that is boozy and masculine.

Featured Detective:

Mr. Nick Charles. Created by author Dashiell Hammett for his detective novel, The Thin Man, (1934), Nick Charles, along with his wife Nora, starred in 6 hit films (1934-1947), were featured on their own radio program, (1941-1950), and eventually ended up on television in the mid-late 1950s for a total run of 72 episodes.

Character Study:

Cocktail-happy, former P.I. and Pinkerton, Nick Charles, wants nothing more than to enjoy his retirement drinking bourbon in excess at his favorite Manhattan speakeasy while flirting with his Nob Hill heiress wife. When a murder mystery lands in their laps, however, Missus Charles has other ideas!
