"Handmade in New York City" is the motto Joya proudly stands by. Whether it's their candles or perfumes, Joya welcomes and embraces the curious nose or candle fanatic. Introduced to the world by founder, Frederick Bouchardy, Joya has participated in the Elements showcase since its inception a couple of years ago. Not one to have an entire line of fragrances, Joya has just enough options to accommodate their established and loyal followers while catering to new perfume seekers.
What I like about Joya is its friendly price point, quality, options, and use of essential oils. A convenient travel size roll on perfume of Joya FvsS Composition No.1 cost $28.00! It's not large, but it carries enough perfume power to keep you smelling and feeling yourself all day;) Apply the roll-on to your skin and notice how the essentials oils leave a scented residue that last throughout the day! No.1 is my favorite Joya scent; however, the recent release, Ames Soeurs or soul mates, is a top contender as well. The roll-on is travel friendly and can be thrown in a purse but if you're a fragrance enthusiast the porcelain perfume bottle (shown below) will make a great addition to your collection. No.1 is safe for work (will not over power colleagues) and excellent for socializing with a fun crowd!
Top notes: sparkling Italian mandarin, Brazilian orange and fresh quince.
Heart notes: heliotrope petals, tuberose, jasmine, camellia and Damask rose.
Dry down notes: creamy sandalwood, pale musk and a hint of tonka bean
If you like your house or apartment to smell as good as you, Joya's candles or diffusers are worth considering. Seeking a simple but quality candle? Or one that adds design presence to your space? Joya is ideal. Their candles have been created by celebrated ceramic artist, Sarah Cihat, and most recently Joya added a new candle line by Hervé L. Leroux, formally known as Hervé Leger, and it's pretty darn mesmerizing I might add!
