D.S. & DURGA - is David Seth Moltz (D.S.) and his wife Kavi (DURGA)
An unusual couple in every way.
David is self-taught, has no classical perfumer training, but has always had an incredible passion for everything that smells. His creations are all about creating and communicating art.
He draws his inspiration from music, literature, cowboy history, the landscape - simply from everything he encounters and what makes him contemplate.
Kavi is the designer of the brand. She gives the brand her unmistakable stamp in design, layout and packaging.
It all began in D.S.'s apartment in Brooklyn, N.Y. and craftsmanship, sustainability and artistic excellence still play the most important role at D.S. & DURGA today.
The fragrances are meant to stimulate reflection and communication - by using them one should venture into unknown inner dimensions, come to inner peace and contemplation and then talk about the experience with others. Because art always means communication!
All D.S. & DURGA products are 100% vegan and the packaging is made of recycled or recyclable materials.
Selected fragrances and scented candles from D.S. & DURGA are available at your Perfume Art Shop Holger Dubben - specialist shop for extraordinary fragrances and exclusive cosmetics - in Cologne.
Our highlight: "Vio-Volta" - the electrified violet, a greenish molecular fragrance. Exciting!
