Inner Minion Special Edition Candle - Kevin
Joya has partnered with Illumination and Universal Brand Development to create a limited-edition collection of sculptural scented candles with matching cast porcelain holders.
The range transforms Bob, Stuart and Kevin (3 of the iconic Minions from the most successful animated franchise of all time) into objects that serve as both decorative, collectible art pieces and functional candles.
Thoughtfully designed and uniquely detailed, the Minions are captured as raw wax pillars in tranquil, zen-like poses—evoking a theme of mindfulness and remaining present—that sit in ceramic vessels shaped like their signature overalls.
In celebration of Minions: The Rise of Gru, in theaters Summer 2022, the collection released on HBX / Hypebeast in December 2021 and launches at Joya’s Brooklyn boutique and on joyastudio.com in January 2022.
True mindfulness takes patience, awareness, courage, maybe a little mischief.
Light a Joya x Minions candle and start your spiritual journey.
Jasmine petals, cedar leaf and sweetwater stimulate reflection, introspection.
Next, an encounter with patchouli, amber and velvet musk illuminate your calling.
Finally, a hint of banana essence and the road home: What you had been seeking was under your nose this entire time.

This object is designed primarily for decorative and collectible purposes. It will burn, and it will drip—so care is required. Place candle inside porcelain base on temperature-safe / non-flammable surface, ideally one that can collect a pool of liquid wax.
Burn no more than 2 hours at a time. Trim wicks to ¼ inch prior to each relighting.
Do not allow wick trimmings to accumulate in wax pool. Container may be hot when candle is lit and shortly thereafter. Allow candle to cool completely before moving. Keep candle away from drafts. Discontinue use when ½ inch of wax remains.
Once your wax Minion is no more and the vessel is ready to fulfill its new purpose, we recommend using a dry tissue, towel or rag by hand to wipe off any soot (carbon) that may have accumulated on the inside of the container. You should discard this tissue or rag, so using a dish brush is not advisable. Once the soot has been removed, a hand-wash in soapy water to remove any last elements should do the trick. For any stubborn pieces of wax remaining, leaving the container in a freezer overnight usually encourages the wax to shrink and ultimately pop out—the metal wick tab too.
