About D.S. & Durga

"We started from scratch and did it our way (more Sid than Sinatra). We were pioneers in DIY Brooklyn. We began by turning things we 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.

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."
