Jazz-inspired scented candles offered at Jazz Loft

The Jazz Loft in Stony Brook has partnered with Old Field Apothecary to offer three original jazz-inspired scented candles.

The collaboration between small-business owner Renee Fondacaro, who owns Old Field Apothecary, and Jazz Loft founder Tom Manuel created the three original candles aimed to spark the same excitement as the music itself.

The Lady Day candle has notes of rose, green leaf, powder, musk, and white gardenia inspired by Billie Holiday’s signature flower that she wore in her hair. Mood Indigo, inspired by Duke Ellington, has notes of leather, smoke, tobacco, sandalwood, musk, and amber to bring the feeling of an elegant jazz club. The holiday-inspired Jingle Jazz candle spikes up the traditional Christmas tree scent with notes of gin, red currant, oak, juniper, and cypress.

Old Field Apothecary candles are both gluten- and paraben-free, and made with clean burning vegan coconut apricot creme wax. Each candle is hand-poured and contains a crackling wooden wick to create a cozy, by-the-fireside experience.

“I’m so excited to collaborate with the Jazz Loft,” said Fondacaro. “The scents we have created reflect the jazz artists and the beautiful Stony Brook Village community. Old Field Apothecary is proud to be able to offer our natural products that are toxin-free, phthalate-free and made from vegan waxes for this local and special venue. These new scents make great holiday gifts for your favorite music lover.”

The exclusive candles can only be purchased in person at the Jazz Loft for $28 each, two for $50, or all three for $75.

“It’s always wonderful when we can work with local businesses,” says Manuel. “I’m quite excited that we could create these unique signature candles that bring together the atmosphere of the Jazz Loft and a wonderful local business such as Old Field Apothecary. Renee’s creativity in designing the scents is inspirational.”
