The name translates to jewel, but JOYA isn’t thinking about carats and clarity. Instead, the innovative line is referring to the way its natural wax candles have a crystalline, not smooth, character. Founder Frederick Bouchardy takes an haute approach to scent, developing distinctive candles and uncommon fragrances that are meant to be displayed — like jewels. A favorite among fashion elites, the brand places as much emphasis on its artistic bottles and packaging as on the modern, entrancing scents. It’s no wonder that they’ve been tapped to create special editions for Rodarte, Opening Ceremony, and Barneys New York.
Modern fragrance meets artisanal craftsmanship. From their covetable candles to their beguiling perfumes, all of JOYA's products are intelligently conceived and thoughtfully designed. They use responsibly sourced ingredients in all their formulas, and the bottles themselves are works of art.
Talk about chic: All of Joya’s perfume oils come in hand-crafted porcelain bottles with gold-dipped wands applicators.
The JOYA Original Collection includes 18 candles, all made from tropical palm wax and essential oils. FvsS Parfums have a sophisticated and subtly mysterious scent — pick Composition No. 1 for a fresh floral, or go for Composition No. 6 if you want something darker.
