DS & Durga hand craft perfume and cologne in small batches using premium-sourced ingredients.
They take inspiration from antiquated herbal wisdom, native ritual medicine, Americana, outdated lore, geography, history, and gastronomy. While referencing the classics, DS&D strive to make scents appropriate for modern ladies and gentlemen of discerning tastes.
The company harkens back to the pre-industrial cottage industries of North America. DS&D literally craft, bottle, box, and label everything with their four hands. The processes are time consuming and low in yield - both factors place high quality above quantity - a rarity today in the world of fine fragrance.
Beaver trappers were the cowboys of early America. Renegade mountaineers of the Jacksonian era who cut trails through the wild in search of beaver pelts – prized by hatters, doctors, & perfumers. Dark cedar, snake root, synthetic beaver castor, & wild bergamot.
