The Collab: Firmly rooted in the belief that we should actively resist the use of public outdoor spaces as tools for gentrification, this collaboration between Bright Black, Project Backboard and Adia Millett represents the power of partnership in service of community. 25% of sales go to Project Backboard to support public basketball court renovations
Scent Notes: Sandalwood, black musk and leather.
The Scent Story: Comforting sandalwood, grounding black musk and a subtle hint of leather capture the spirited respite of outdoor basketball at dusk. This scent blend showcases the role of outdoor basketball in the lives of those who play it and highlights the importance of outdoor space for decompression and healing.
The Artwork: Taking Flight by Adia Millett is inspired by the idea of communal levitation, lifting each other up, like a child lifts a kite, paper airplane, or a basketball. Traces of those objects, and an ancestral mask lay across the court’s surface. The colors and shapes were chosen to evoke expansion, joy and strength.
Candle Details: Each 10oz Black, matte vessel contains 7.5 ounces of wax and custom-blended fragrance, along with all natural cotton wicks. 70-80 hours of burn time each.
