In March of 2020, Kelly Jones packed her bags and was headed to the Yucatán for her next olfactive inspiration. A time in our lives where a pandemic stopped all travel, Kelly had to step into her own backyard to imagine what this fragrance should smell like. She wandered deep into the Catskill Mountains and discovered secret waterfalls and fauna that mirrored a parallel universe to the Mexican jungle. As the waterfall mist touched her skin, she 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. A blend of Mayan leaves and Catskill waterfalls, she envisioned Mezcal Verde right then and there, went back to her lab, and translated that into a cascade perfume filled with an enrapturing spirit. *A portion of every bottle sold goes to Programa Vaca, a Mexico-based organization that is helping to rebuild in the country's earthquake-affected rural areas with sustainable architecture and natural materials, for long term, positive human impact.
Notes include limón, fern, white sage, violet leaf, and birch incense.
Kelly Jones designs vineyard and spirit-inspired fragrances at her scent studio in Michigan. She moved to New York in 2010 from the West Coast, where she trained her nose in the vineyards of California, and then moved back to her Michigan roots in 2022.
