D.S. & Durga
D.S. & Durga believe in perfume’s ability to conjure unseen worlds. The power of scent is equal to that of sight and sound. Artistry is the first priority for this duo. The scents are fragments of half-remembered myths and imaginary landscapes that invite one to explore. All of their creativity 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. His distinct process involves creating accords of lifelike objects, places, characters and weaving them into rich narratives. The sniffer reading the description should be clearly able to sense the ideas within the perfume. Kavi (aka Durga) designs everything. She approaches her work like an architect. Thinking in angles, light, shadow, and texture, Kavi seeks to create clarity in form and function for the houses of the perfumes. With great intention she honours the subtle messages of product design.
