Aromatically speaking, the movies have historically been limited to wafts of hot butter, worn velour, and failed experiments with Smell-O-Vision.

Hoping to change that, we collaborated with Brooklyn-based fragrance studio Joya on a line of six scented candles inspired by classic film genres: Horror, Western, Thriller, Noir, Adventure, and Musical.

7oz 200g / Soy wax blend.

Burn time is 50-60 hours, or approximately 33 movies.
