As everyone is bouncing back to normal, it’s even more thrilling to see examples of amazing creativity and entrepreneurship rising up from ashes of the pandemic. New York City and the State have been hit the hardest and the exhaustion shows on faces of many when they are pulling their masks off. But yeah, it’s a great day if you get to witness the other side of the pandemic and everything that comes next will be amazing!
I was so fortunate to collab on some amazing fashion photography project with perfume designer Kelly Jones who has been featured in the Hudson Valley Style Magazine just a couple months ago. And what was back then just an idea in the works, has become a reality and I’ve got to smell (without the mask LOL) Kelly’s new fragrance Mezcal Verde.
My verdict is in the headline, but I’ll say it again: The most authentic and stylish scent of summer 2021 is here and below is Kelly’s story about how it came to life.
Kelly Jones: Last March, my bags were packed for the Yucatán. A bottle of mezcal awaited along a perfumed trail, lush with ripened fruits and ancient Mayan medicinal leaves.
Then – the scent trek, and the world, went on hold. All of our senses were suddenly put to the test.
Nature was still open, so I wandered deep into the Catskill Mountains here at home. I discovered secret waterfalls and fauna that mirrored a parallel universe to the Mexican jungle.
As the waterfall mist touched my skin, I poured a glass of mezcal and listened to cascades hitting mossy rocks in an endless hymn. It was an incense of smoky agave spirits blended with Wet Stone, Violet Leaf, Fern and Birch.
It was Mezcal Verde.
This new fragrance celebrates the nature in your own backyard, wherever you are. A deep breath of green leaves and a drop of mystery, it lifts the spirit and lets us know that new beginnings are the most adventurous chapters of all.
