We believe in perfume's ability to conjure unseen worlds.
The power of scent is equal to that of sight and sound. 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 our universe–all that we love in music, art, nature, and design told aromatically. Our 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. We create authentic studies of real world objects, plants, and places. We weave them into narratives that transport you to far off places, material and imaginary.
All of our creative comes from within. That means 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.
Our package is a piece. The opening establishes the relationship between user and perfume. Our boxes have been engineered to be foam-free, recyclable paper, and our shipping materials are biodegradable. The formulas are 100% vegan.
