Description

Location: Cahuenga 615, Los Angeles
Featured Detective: Private Investigator Philip Marlowe
Year: 1939

THE SCENT: Step back in time to “Cahuenga 615” with Flame Noir Candle Co.'s original, all natural, book-lovers soy candle inspired by private investigator Philip Marlowe. Our handmade lead-free scented candle features a mysterious blend of rich, Colombian coffee, Cuban tobacco, & the masculine scents of a noir-era barbershop.

THE SCENE: Step inside the offices of “Cahuenga 615”, Los Angeles, 1939, and picture yourself in the world of hardboiled private investigator Philip Marlowe. Walk through the waiting room, passing by a red velvet settee, two Cuban mahogany wing back chairs and a library table on which several magazines sit. Let your imagination run wild as you enter Marlowe’s office. The floor is covered in wall-to-wall broadloom carpet in a deep, rust-red. Just past the door, a walnut coat rack is host to a tan Kingsway trench coat and matching felt fedora hat. Three tufted leather chairs are arranged before a walnut desk, on which sits a blotter and matching pen set, an ashtray, tobacco and rolling papers, a black rotary telephone, a .38 revolver with a 6-inch barrel, and an open bottle of brandy. The windows are open, but the venetian blinds are down, casting slanted, horizontal shadows in the late-afternoon sun. The smell of rich coffee hangs in the air from a drugstore across the street. Sitting in his leather-backed swivel chair, Marlowe reaches for his gun. He cleans and loads it before crossing the room to dawn his coat and hat. He’ll be needing that gun tonight as he follows a trail of set-ups, bad women, blackmail and murder.

SCENT NOTES: Colombian coffee, cocoa beans, Cuban tobacco, tobacco leaf, hair tonic, aftershave, amber, brandy, brown sugar, cloves, Oriental spice

SCENT STRENGTH: Strong/Medium

NOSE: Top notes of rich coffee and middles notes of lush tobacco finish on notes of exotic resins, spices and old-fashioned aftershave, making this original Flame Noir Candle Co. scent blend a hit with guys and dolls alike!

GIFT IDEAS: Cahuenga 615 makes a perfect housewarming, special occasion, holiday or birthday gift under $10 (4 oz) or $20 (8 oz). Perfect for fans of Philip Marlowe, mystery lovers, coworkers, couples, Film Noir and detective fiction fans, private investigators and law enforcement officers, crime fiction writers, or really anyone attracted to masculine coffee scents with a mysterious vintage twist.

FEATURED DETECTIVE: PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR PHILIP MARLOWE. Developing in a series of Black Mask magazine short stories written by Raymond Chandler between 1933-1939, Philip Marlowe’s first full length novel, “The Big Sleep”, (1939), had such a huge impact on the world of detective fiction that the influences can still be felt to this day.

CHARACTER STUDY: Below the surface, hard-boiled private investigator Philip Marlowe is surprisingly contemplative. Full of wisecracks and an abiding cynicism, his direct, even simple disposition never reveals his deeply philosophical inner workings. Time and again, Marlowe allows himself to be underestimated to the peril of 1930s & 1940s Los Angeles crooks, triggermen, femme fatales and wrong-doers of every social class. On the job he smokes Camels, talks tough, and drinks whiskey. At home, he can be found playing chess and smoking a pipe. He loves a stiff drink of brandy, a steaming cup of coffee, and all the wrong women.

FAQs

To help you select, we use the following terms:

*Top Notes* is used to indicate the strongest scent in the candle. Top notes are noticeable when the candle is cold or hot.

*Middle Notes* is used to capture the secondary scents in the candle, which may or may not be noticeable when the candle is cold. Middle notes come out during the burning of the candle and should start to become more apparent as the wax melts and the pool spreads to the edges of the tin.

*Finish* is used to capture the most subtle scents in the candle. Finishing notes are sometimes undetectable as individual scents, but they add a subtle complexity as the scent begins to fill the room.

Check for full descriptions on each candle's page or try a 6 tealight sampler set!
Trim wick to 1/4 inch prior to lighting. Keep candle free of foreign material. Only burn candle on a level, fire resistance surface. Do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time. Discontinue use when only 1/4 inch of the wax remains.
Our candles are lead free! Our wicks are specialty, coreless cotton interwoven with paper and dipped in beeswax. Our soy wax candles are dye free and do not contain wax additives.
Since these soy wax candles do not contain additives, the surface wax after your first burn may appear rough, frosted, or slightly lumpy once it hardens. This is typical of all natural soy wax candles and is purely cosmetic. It is not a product flaw and will not affect the scent or performance of your candle!
"Mushrooming" at the end of your wick is simply carbon buildup and may happen from time to time. It is typical of core-less/lead free wicks. To quickly and neatly trim your wick, we recommend turning your cooled and hardened candle upside over a garbage bin where you may simply trim or pinch the excess wick to 1/4 of an inch. Prior to relighting, make sure you clean away any soot or debris from the candle surface.
Yes! Bulk orders are available. Please contact us with your inquiries for pricing and an estimated time frame on order fulfillment. Special custom commissions, including new scent creation with custom labeling & candle inserts are available and are approved on a case-by-case basis. Prepayment in full is required for all custom commissions. Please note that once the commission is completed, Flame Noir maintains ownership of the scent and branding and may decide to feature the scent as a candle and/or rooms spray for sale in our store at a later date. All custom commissions will need to fit into the Flame Noir detective and/or mystery theme in order to be approved.

Although there are many suppliers of treated candle tins are on the market, Flame Noir Candle Co has decided not to use candle tins that have been “varnished” on the interior with what we feel is an unnecessary chemical wash. As a result of our choice to avoid the use of varnished tins, (and because we do not use additives or dyes to disguise or chemically eliminate any natural discoloration), you may notice a slight pink color on the interior of your candles in scent blends that contain vanilla or other spices. Not to worry! This “tin pinking” is simply a natural chemical reaction to the vanilla and/or spices. It is not a product flaw, and will not affect the scent or the performance of your candle. Breathe confidently – breathe safely!
