The background: Colorado Aromatics founder Dr. Cindy Jones met songwriter Sharon Glassman at the Longmont Farmer’s Market in 2013. Jones was there to sell her Colorado Aromatics line of organic skincare products. Glassman, who writes charmingly original tunes, was the entertainment.
Flash forward one year: Jones was opening her new Colorado Aromatics store on 3rd and Lashley Street in Longmont. Glassman was released a CD of songs called Blame It On Hoboken, featuring a dream team of Colorado musicians.
In a creative Aha! moment, the two Longmont women thought: Let’s combine them!
The result: an ongoing series of aromatic concerts that pairs Glassman’s live performance of the songs on her new CD, Blame It On Hoboken, with Colorado Aromatics Aromatic Waters and Skin Care.
November 5th’s concert location is at Mary’s Market & Deli in Hygiene, CO. Mary Magdalena, the owner, knows Sharon well – Sharon, a loyal customer, did her photo shoot for her CD at Mary’s Market – and recorded part of her CD in the building next door. And she’s been in love with the Colorado Aromatics skincare line, which she’ll be stocking during the concert – and after.
“Songs tap our emotions through sound,” Dr. Jones says. “And scents are powerful emotional enhancing agents, too. I’ll be acting a scent sommelier as Sharon plays. The audience will detect a faint trace of pure lavender during her slower songs, rose during her love songs and peppermint during her more upbeat songs. It’s like sound-sound for your nose!”
“I fell in love with Colorado Aromatics products at first sight – and first sniff,” Glassman says. “The organic lavender line is one of my favorites. But I’m a huge fan of all of their Aromatic Waters or HydroSols. I bring them with me to social events. I spray a little bit on my sleeve to boost my mood, or calm my nerves before a show.”
Glassman’s songs, which range from jazz to folk, will be paired with Colorado Aromatics Aromatic Waters in lavender, peppermint scents and more.

BENEFIT FOR KENNY BRENT & FAMILY – SUNDAY, NOV. 16th
From Kenny: Julie and I have just been through weeks of hell since Black Mold appeared (airborne) and I try to heal up health wise with my lungs and voice really suffering, and a horrible rash. Julie has had serious stomach problems as well as the skin rash, and the mental stress is beyond belief. Thank God we have each other and we appreciate all who have been so supportive. We now have lost most of our household furniture and some personal belongings. We are so thankful for our pictures and clothing being saved early, but it was very hard on us mentally when the landlord ignored the problem. If you have a good used bed or other furniture, let us know and maybe we can rebuild soon. We have moved and must start over. Hopefully our health will improve after moving to safer surroundings.
When: Sunday, November 16th
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Where: “The Office on Colfax”, Tap House, 7800 East Colfax Avenue, Denver
Cost: $10 at the door
Also performing will be Kurt Lee doing an Elvis Tribute!
Now here’s a new way to PAY TO PLAY (All proceeds go to the Brent Family)…
To all bands, pickers, singers, and artists:
First of all, thank you for your wonderful participation in this much needed event for Kenny & Julie Brent. Here are the open stage guidelines:
We will open the stage to a single artist for $5 per 2 song a set; Bands are asked $10 per 20 minute set.

[Editor’s note: Not sure we agree with this strategy since bands/artists are usually the only people NOT to make money, especially at benefits. Then again, it is a benefit for a needy family. Your choice.]
