Poured Candle Bar Brings Bespoke Fragrance Experience to Ithaca

Poured Candle Bar, a unique candle-making and wine bar concept from Hudson, NY, is set to open its second location in mid-July at Press Bay Court in downtown Ithaca, NY. The new business will occupy the former site of The Haunt music club on Green Street, offering a personalized fragrance experience paired with a curated selection of local and international wines and spirits.

Owners Dennis Green and Ricky Tiscareno were drawn to Ithaca's vibrant culture and natural beauty, seeing an opportunity to bring their distinctive business to the area. "You can still see where the stage was, where the bar was," Green said of the historic space, which previously housed a hair salon. "It was a moment of fate," added Tiscareno, noting that the location was not on the market when they discovered it.

At Poured Candle Bar, customers can craft their own bespoke candles, choosing from a wide array of fragrances to create a one-of-a-kind scent. The experience is complemented by a carefully selected wine bar featuring local and international offerings, as well as light snacks. The business also showcases luxury home items, perfumes, colognes, and gifts, working with local artisans to create exclusive vessels for their candles.

The Hudson location, which opened in September 2020, has become a destination experience, attracting customers from across the state. Green and Tiscareno have conducted extensive research to ensure their concept remains unique. "We have done a lot of research to make sure that what we're doing is unique to us," Green emphasized. The Ithaca location may feature Finger Lakes and Ithaca-inspired scents, similar to their existing Hudson Collection.

With reservations already available, Poured Candle Bar is poised to bring a new, immersive experience to Ithaca's downtown scene. The combination of personalized candle-making and a curated wine bar promises to be a welcome addition to the city's vibrant culture, offering a unique destination for locals and visitors alike in the heart of the Finger Lakes region.
