A24 Joya candle
A24

A24 has just restocked its candle collection made in collaboration with Brooklyn-based fragrance studio, Joya. The re-release sees six scents returning, while two new ones have been added to the mix.

The A24 x Joya collection consists of eight candles each inspired by a different classic movie genre. Returning are the Horror, Western, Thriller, Noir, Adventure, and Musical candles, as Sci-Fi and Rom-Com now round out the assortment. Each candle is made from a soy wax blend and has a burn time of 50 to 60 hours, or, approximately 33 movies, A24 cheekily points out.

"Aromatically speaking, the movies have historically been limited to wafts of hot butter, worn velour, and failed experiments with Smell-O-Vision," A24 said in the product description, then going on to insist it is hoping to change that.

You can read about the scent of each candle below and purchase them today for $48 a piece.
