WE'RE INTO: BLEECKER + MACDOUGAL 56

The Bleecker+MacDougal 56 candle by Oak is a soy wax candle and the latest edition to our coveted candle collection. Each Oak Candle is designed to evoke a moment and place (an intersection, to be exact) in time in New York’s history. The shape of the candle and the glass container evokes the tall votive candles that are ubiquitous in New York Bodegas and Corner Stores. The candle is inspired by the Beat Generation back in the 1950’s set in the hub of jazz and poetry clubs of the West Village: wet wool, wet leather, denim, smoke, marijuana, Chanel no 5, lipstick and wood.

The Beats were known for their black tights, adoration for saucy jazz, and for being somewhat nomadic and detached in their physical being, but also in their spiritual and mental being. The original leaders of the hipsters created not only an accepting world for other artistic-types, but also sought out their own escapades, even if they seemed float through the world.

Features a cotton wick. Burns for 100+ hours. Hand-poured in Brooklyn, NY, U.S.A. . Poured in small batches, these soy blend candles, containing 15% fine fragrance oil, are specifically designed to emit long-lasting, multi-faceted scents that will continue to unfurl as they burn. Candle label is removable if you want to strip the glass and keep that quintessential generic appeal of the classic bodega candle.
