Where it all started…So many people ask us how we decided to take the leap into Vert Mont Perfumery. Our stories are listed, but how Jasna and I met at The Valley Players in Waitsfield, Vermont is a sweet story. We were in rehearsal for a dynamic play “12 Angry Jurors” and had one brief scene together. Over the rehearsal period we began discussing our scents. ”Oooh you smell so good! What is that?” Comments like that began our initial connection.
One dress rehearsal I recall choosing a scent for my character, a heady Annick Goutal type chypre. Jasna, totally in character doing a preshow improvisation, almost under her breath exclaimed “You smell rich!” And there you have it. I was playing an affluent matronally woman and she totally got my added dimension of scent. It wasn’t a room deodorizing amount. It was literally for me and yet she got it. That so intrigued me that the moment is forever imprinted in my memory.
