From the artisanal visual guide The Maker’s Project comes a unique photographic insight into the world of esteemed fragrance collective Joya. The photography captures the care and patient dexterity that goes into creating Joya’s fragrant masterpieces.

Currently enjoying a surge in popularity for their hand produced candles, Joya was founded in 2004 by Frederick Bouchardy.  Using artisanal techniques, enhanced with environmentally friendly refinement, Joya soon set the standard with bold, original fragrances for the home.  Now their fragrant reach has further progressed, branching out into fine fragrance, personal care and unusual accessories.


Joya (“jewel” in Spanish) is so named for the unique, crystalline natural wax blend used for the brand’s premier candle collection.


Joya’s technical and ethical innovation has seen them collaborate with established lifestyle and grooming brands as well as avant-garde labels (such as Opening Ceremony and Rodarte)to create exquisitely balanced fragrance compositions – be it liquid or candle in form.


The Joya house brand is available in the finest apothecaries, boutiques, spas, resorts, and department stores worldwide, including Barneys New York (United States), Selfridges London (United Kingdom), Lane Crawford (Hong Kong/China), Tomorrowland (Japan), and Carouzos (Greece).
