A24 has just restocked its collection of candles made in collaboration with Brooklyn-based perfume studio Joya. The reissue sees the return of six scents, while two new ones have been added to the mix.
The A24 x Joya collection consists of eight candles each inspired by a different classic film genre. The Horror, Western, Thriller, Noir, Adventure and Musical candles are back, as Sci-Fi and Rom-Com now complete the assortment. Each candle is made from a mixture of soy wax and has a burn time of 50 to 60 hours, or about 33 films, A24 points out insolently.
“Aromatically speaking, movies have historically been limited to puffs of hot butter, worn velvet, and failed experiments with Smell-O-Vision,” A24 said in the product description, then insisted that he hopes to change that.
You can read the scent of each candle below and buy them today for $ 48 each.
