Doing it Their Way
D.S. & Durga is D.S, a writer and musician turned self-taught perfumer, and Durga is an architect and
branding guru. Together the duo create perfume as theatre, which they describe as more 'Sid than
Perfume as Narrative
Smell is one of the most evocative senses, and D.S harnesses its power to create invisible stories to
carry with you throughout the day. Be it Big Sur After Rain, evoking the smell of Highway One or
Rose Atlantic, described as summer in a bottle, all of their scents have a story to tell. People,
music and places inspire their products and each scent has an accompanying playlist to engage the
senses even further.
D.S sources ingredients from all over the world, cherry picking the best oils, florals, plants and
oils for their unique blends. Their formulas are 100% vegan, and their boxes are engineered to be
foam-free. They only use recyclable paper, and their shipping materials are biodegradable.
