The Brooklyn Circus


We're pleased to announce the relaunch of one of our earliest collaborations! At Joya, we're the happiest when we get to explore and collaborate with other brands and creatives. This kind of ghostwriting, the process of transforming a friend's vision into a palpable, sensorial experience, enables us to understand ourselves and each other better. And we think our candle collaboration with our good friend Ouigi Theodore and The Brooklyn Circus is a perfect example.

The Brooklyn Circus candle has become such an integral part of their shop's ambiance, and we couldn't be more excited to commemorate over a decade of its existence with this relaunch! The raw materials and packaging have been updated with the times, but that warm, comforting feeling when you encounter the scent is the same as ever.

Top notes: grapefruit peel, cypress and coconut milk.
Heart: Damask rose, honeydew and jasmine petals.
Drydown: Bourbon vanilla, sandalwood, sugar and pale musk.

The Brooklyn Circus

Net Weight: 185 g / 6.5 oz.

Approximate Burn Time: 50 hours

Ingredients: soy wax blend, fine fragrance, essential oil, cotton wick. 

– Trim wicks to 1/4" before lighting

– Burn candle for no less than 1 hour and no more than 3 hours at a time. This prevents wax tunneling

– Discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remain

Once your candle is finished and the vessel is ready to be repurposed, 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. After this process—once the soot has been removed—a hand-wash in soapy water to remove last elements of excess 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. Metal wick stabilizers should also pop out without issue.
