Joya x Baxter Of California x Reed Space – LAPSANG NOIR Candles

New York’s Reed Space decided to get together with fragrance makers Joya and men’s cosmectics brand Baxter Of California to develop a custom scent. The outcome is LAPSANG NOIR.

“LAPSANG NOIR is a smoky, steaming black Lapsang Souchong Tea with inflections of exotic Indonesian herbal tones over a warm and radiant white floral mix of Tuberose, Pikaki, Ylang Ylang and Jacaranda blossoms.
We were burning the Baxter “Noir” Candle Series at the Staple Design HQ as well as Reed Space on a regular basis. It’s a unanimous favorite for everyone. This inspired us to create a custom scent that was uniquely ours, but still, shared the spirit of Baxter of California and Joya. The result is something that took 15 months to create and we are supremely proud of this collaboration: LAPSANG NOIR.

The Lapsang Noir candle will be available in two sizes: HALF KILO ($84) and FULL KILO ($151). The large
black wax candles have impressive burn times of 100 hours and 200 hours respectively. You can find the candles at Reed Space in NYC and at Baxter Finley (Baxter’s Barber Shop) in Los Angeles. Additionally the candles will be available online at select retail partners.”

Not only do these smell great, but the candles packaging is also simple and beautiful, inspired by the packaging of tea.
