DS & DURGA

D.S. & Durga founders believe in perfume's ability to conjure unseen worlds. The power of scent is equal to that of sight and sound. Artistry is their first priority. This collection is their Universe: all that they love in music, art, nature. and design told aromatically. Artistry is their first priority. Their scents are fragments of haft-remembered myths and imaginary landscapes that invites one to explore. D.S. and Durga were pioneers in the DIY Brooklyn movement around the turn of the century. They began by turning things they loved into scents. At first they handmade scents stories of cowboys, open terrain, Russian novel character, folksongs, etc., and packed them into hand-stamped boxes in their Bushwick apartment. They stared from scratch, taught themselves as they went along, and did it their own way (more Sid than Sinatra).
