New York based Joya Candles have collaborated with London department store Harrods to create a limited edition, black porcelain candle.

The candle, named “Oud, Leather & Plume Cedar” – is described as a New York take on resinous oud oil (agar or heartwood). Enhanced by notes of suede, saddle leather, guiacwood, vetiver, santal and cedar – the candle has been formulated with maximum oil concentration.

Equally striking, is the procelain vessel in which the candle is housed. Designed by renonwned Brooklyn-based ceramic artist Sarah Cihat – each is mixed as a liquid slip with black stain in the Joya Studio, then cast and finished by hand. Weighing in at 21.5 ounces (610g) the black coloured, soy wax blend is on average four times the size of an average luxury candle.

The finishing touch – is a golden coloured, weighty brass lid which doubles as a base, designed by Michael Miller of emerging jewellery collective K/LLER COLLECTION. Again, made in New York City.
