D.S. & Durga was founded in 2009 by autodidactic perfumer David Seth Moltz and architect Kavi Moltz. They believe in pefume's ability to conjure unseen worlds. The power of scent is equal to that of sight and sound. Artistry is their first priority.
All that they love in music, art, nature, and design is told aromatically.The scents are fragments of half-remembered myths and imaginary landscapes that invite one to explore.
All of their creative comes from within. They are passionate about translating musical and literary spaces into scent. This 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.
