Smoke Gets In…

This candle makes us feel warm and cozy.


When I was growing up, my father had our fireplace roaring every day—no matter the weather. So it’s not hard to figure out why I love anything reminiscent of burning embers. The In Girum candle by Joya Studio is a limited-edition blend of wood smoke and cade—a type of evergreen shrub—that makes me feel warm and cozy. And the hand-made saddle-leather casing, created by the London-based accessories designer Oliver Ruuger, is as evocative as the candle itself; once the wax is gone, I’ll use it to hold fireplace matches.
