D.S. & DURGA

D.S. & Durga believes that the power of scent is equal to that of sight and sound. Perfumes are fragments of half-remembered myths and imaginary landscapes that invite exploration. Every single fragrance is a triumph of details: from ingredients to packaging nothing is missing to give you an incredible experience through fragrances as if the art of perfumery could bring to you fragments of our magical world.

A great scent is a world you can return to over and over–a keyhole into another realm. You can travel via the mind-nose connection to larger collective spaces. D.S. & DURGA is all that we love in music, art, nature, and design told aromatically. The scents are fragments of half-remembered myths and imaginary landscapes that invite exploration. They are an invisible soundtrack that you can carry on your body throughout the day. Authentic Studies of real world objects, plants, and places turn into unique fragrances and stories. The stories and ramblings of D.S. are inside each box. The more you know, the deeper you explore the world in the bottle. Art is enriched by discussion and engagement. The brand’s history began by turning things the creators loved into scented stories of cowboys, open terrain, Russian novel characters, folk songs and packing them into stamped boxes in D.S.’s Bushwick apartment. These roots of detail and human hands are still strong today. D.S. is really the perfumer: he taught himself how to make perfume by immersing himself in all things fragrant. He is passionate about translating musical and literary spaces into scent. Each fragrance is conceived and constructed by D.S. with no middleman or interpretation from an outside perfumer. KAVI (A.K.A. DURGA) designs everything. She approaches her work like an architect–her trade by training. Thinking in angles, light, shadow, and texture, Kavi seeks clarity in form and function. She builds buildings for our scents, cities for our universe. Packaging is important: The opening establishes the relationship between user and perfume. All the boxes have been engineered to be foam-free, recyclable paper, and all shipping materials are biodegradable. The formulas are 100% vegan. D.S. sources ingredients from all over, cherry picking the best of this and the most useful of that. The art of perfume is more about how you use your items, not just their quality. Off-notes, unexpected combinations, and novel constructions are the core of our aromatic vision. Everything is made in the belly of the beast: NY has shaped lives and visions of the brand sicne day one.
