Joya Studio is a New York City-based fragrance design studio founded in 2006. Joya designs and produces distinctive scented products with an ethos of balance and beauty using simple, locally-sourced raw materials, sustainable packaging and design, and ethical production practices. Their fragrances blend both essential oils and aromas that synthesize molecules found in nature. At their studio in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, Joya hand-pours candles for a select list of venerable clients, including JJJJound, Zaha Hadid, Malin+Goetz, and Thomas Keller.
Together with Joya, we’ve created a small collection of candles for the home. Produced in Brooklyn, the candles are made from soy wax and scented with two custom fragrances that we worked directly with Joya to create: Santalum Cedrus and Citrus Paradisi.
Santalum Cedrus features top notes of nutmeg and cinnamon, heart notes of clove bud oil, sandalwood and Virginia cedarwood, and base notes of amber, sweet balsam, dry vetiver grass and root. Citrus Paradisi features top notes of grapefruit and patchouli Leaf, heart notes of violet, ginger, cypress, and lavender, and base notes of sandalwood, cedar wood, and amber.
The Saturdays NYC Citrus Paradisi and Santalum Cedrus candles are now available online and in-store at all Saturdays NYC retail locations on both large and small sizes. They retail for $60 and $35 respectively.■
