bottle and 22k gold dipped wand.

“Joya has always valued the element of surprise—and incorporated this admiration
into its range of products,” said Bouchardy. “It’s only fitting that we would offer
something as unexpected and, in many ways, anachronistic as a dyad of mysterious
perfume oils with ‘magic wands.’ For the packaging, we were inspired by the classics:
Arpege and even Helmut Lang. For the fragrances, we were inspired by our own
personal experiences and desires. Rayda Vega is the ‘nose’ behind them.
We decided to use perfume oil because it has a sensuous and lasting quality. It
interacts with a person’s chemistry and persists and transforms throughout the day
Sarah Cihat designed the vessels for the collection and worked closely with
Bouchardy to create one-of-a-kind pieces for the parfums.
“Each piece is cast by hand and finished in New York. It’s a rather arduous process,
but every bottle truly is a work of art,” says Cihat. “Since they are all handmade—
cast, cleaned and fired—naturally, no two are exactly the same. And there are
imperfections. But this is what we love so much about this project and product—that,
while so many things are mass-produced and uniform, something as personal as
perfume is housed in a vessel that has been crafted by people. The gold-dipped wand
is especially decadent too.”
The design was inspired by the past: cut glass and round perfume bottles. Combining
these elements with a love for asymmetry found in nature results in a sheer
uniqueness of form. The bottle is small and precious like a soft stone in your hand.
There is this inherent warmth. It feels natural to hold.”
