A Whiff of a Taste of the Lower East Side

The joy of Joya candles is their endless repertoire of unconventional scents. Their newest, a very advance preview of a holiday scent in the works, is a collaboration with Katz’s Deli. The candle, made in New York City, is hand-poured into souvenir drinking glasses from the Lower East Side institution bearing an illustration of the 126-year-old Jewish delicatessen. The noses at Joya like to joke that the candle smells like salami, or perhaps pastrami, but in fact its notes include chocolate syrup, whole milk, and cold seltzer — for a more palatable chocolate egg-cream aroma.
