sandalwood incense, amber, bergamot, cantaloupe, jasmine, leather
CNTXT x Slow Jamz “Scents & Sounds” Collab
Inspired by the soulful imagery in Common’s music video for ‘The Light’ directed by Nzingha Stewart, CNTXT and Slow Jamz collaborated to create a scented candle reminiscent of the intimate atmosphere present throughout this iconic video.
To parallel the overall mood of the video and pay homage to the visual elements in each scene, we wanted to strike a balance of warmth and freshness. Notes of sandalwood incense, amber, and leather as the base and notes of cantaloupe, jasmine, and bergamot for a layered finish.
Each note comes together harmoniously for an earthy woody scent that is also sweet and bright.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Nostalgia is a state of being that takes shape in many ways, often finding its way to us through a combination of our senses. Scent and sound in particular are two of the most powerful senses that can transport us back to the past.
In our first collaboration, CNTXT and Slow Jamz curated two scented candles to capture the visual imagery, sound, and lyrics of iconic music videos from the early 2000's. Fusing two sensory experiences unique to each brand, this collection aims to take you on a transportive multi-sensory journey from an intimate bedroom to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. All you need to do is relax, press play, and light up.
We use a natural blend of coconut and apricot with a cotton wick.
Comes in a glossy black glass 8.5oz (240g) container & carefully packaged in an off-white textured paper box. The vellum labels used for this drop are 100% recycled with 100% post-consumer waste material.
Note: Each one of our candles is considered a medium-sized candle (usually between 7-10 oz.) with one wick are appropriate for a medium-sized room, such as a bedroom. If you'd like for the fragrance to fill a larger room like a kitchen or living room, we suggest placing 2-3 candles for a stronger scent throw.
