Candle Whisperer

Scented-candle aficionados looking for more than pleasantly aromatic wax with a wick will fancy a tactile new collaboration between Joya Studios and the artist Oliver Ruuger. The limited-edition candle and engraved leather case are made by hand in New York and London, respectively, with the latter produced from British saddle hide branded with artwork, an ancient Latin palindrome. The candle, called is hand-poured at the Joya Studio using soy, vegetable oil, beeswax, and of course the fragrance, a combination of woodsmoke, fire and juniper oil.

$450 for 12.5 oz at Barneys New York (Madison Ave) and Joya Studios
