Altar (Black Rose + Merlot)


- +

Place this black candle among your precious rosaries, eyeliner, tarot cards and cure albums. This is not your traditional rose candle! Altar is the villain of floral family, a damask rose top note is followed by dark red wine with a subtle base of musk to carry and warm the scent while a spicy wood note adds even more complexity. It is truly an intoxicating and sensual fragrance.

Great Products

This scent is incredible and burns well, has great throw plus this size seems like it will last awhile. The jar is heavy glass and came in a nice box. Exceeded expectations.

Top 3 ever

Many don’t do this scent well. They nailed it!!!!!! Rose is my favorite smell and I am very picky, this one is going to be a staple in my collection.


This is my favorite candle! The description is 100% accurate and the rose scent is magical! So pretty and strongly scented when burning, but you can also smell it when unlit.

Dark, musky and romantic

Everything about this candle is perfect and so very gorgeous. The scent of roses is one of my favorite scents ever, so this candle smells absolutely divine to me. The blend of rose with the merlot wine makes this scent very interesting and complex, and definitely makes this candle stand out among other typical rose scented candles. Dark, musky and romantic are some of the words that come to my mind when thinking about it. And the fact that it's so aesthetically pleasing (just like all BHCO candles are!) is a major plus too. <3

Perfect Rose Scent

This is the perfect balance of rose. Its not sweet or overpowering. Smells exactly like a fresh rose that has yet to be cut. The musk and wood keep it grounded and not perfume-y. I completely see why the Darkwave Collection sells out so fast. These candles are all 10/10.

Happy Customer

Amazing !! Will buy this again! I have been looking for strong rose scent bought candles from a few other companies as well as this one. 2 of them said "Super Scented" They had no scent. This one was my favorite. Such a wonderful scent and I could smell through out the house 😊 thank you !!!
