Johnson, Teri

Teri Johnson is an entrepreneur and adventurer who brings her experience to life through storytelling and luxury products. A life-long traveler, Teri has visited 67 countries learning about the rich cultures of the world while working as a travel and lifestyle expert for various television and digital platforms. During her travels, Teri experienced an array of different scents and developed a passion and obsession for beautiful and evocative fragrances that have the power to transport you to a different time and place. This sparked an idea to create a luxury home fragrance company inspired by her neighborhood of Harlem, specifically during the Harlem Renaissance period. Teri launched the Harlem Candle Company in 2015 to foster her love of fragrance and to continue the legacy of cultural icons such as Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes, and Josephine Baker and to celebrate iconic places like the Savoy Ballroom and Lenox Avenue. Teri's luxury candle line layers the area's rich culture with unique fragrances from around the world to create an unmatched sensorial experience for all.

Teri is dedicated to inspiring today's youth to realize their dreams through the use of visualization and meditation techniques that she teaches when she speaks at local high schools. She talks about her journey of becoming a travel and lifestyle expert and how her intuition led her to the path of entrepreneurship and to build brands around things she loved, travel (Travelista Teri ®) and fragrance (Harlem Candle Co.) Teri also provides summer internships at the Harlem Candle Company where she teaches students how to make candles, build a brand, and run a business.
