D.S. & Durga Eau de Parfum
Bowmakers:: Amongst the transcendental woods of the 1800s, craftsmen from the Massachusetts Bay Colony built violins & bows in the tiny towns of the Pioneer Valley. The shops were riddled with old growth mahogany, burled maple shavings, amber pine rosin, aged walnut & their unique secret varnishes.
Burning Barbershop :: A fire broke out in the Curling Bros. barbershop in Westlake, N.Y. in 1891. All the shaving tonics with their spearmint, lime, vanilla & lavender burned. A charred bottle was found half-full. It smelled like this.
Debaser :: The wild shrill of Black Francis coming through the radio in the August heat. Ripe fig, iris, coconut milk, tonka and dry blond woods.
Freetrapper :: Beaver trappers were the cowboys of early America. Renegade mountaineers of the Jacksonian era who cut trails through the wild in search of beaver pelts – prized by hatters, doctors, & perfumers. Dark cedar, snake root, synthetic beaver castor, & wild bergamot.
Radio Bombay :: Transistor radio hewn of sandalwood radiates ragas in the Bandra heat. Hot copper tubes warm the soft wood releasing blooms of musk, cream, peach, ambrette, coco, cedar distillates.
Mississippi Medicine :: Based on the rituals of the porto-mississippian death cult of the 1200s. Native birch tar, viola, & white spruce grounded in incense & cypress root.
Cowboy Grass :: American sagebrush, flowering white thyme, &
prairie switchgrass from the wild western territories. Perfect for robbing banks on horseback.
White Peacock :: A lone peacock floats over cream lilies, oleander, and a sea of alabaster violet. Orchestral pads of harps and horns drone. Pale blue fog hangs in the far woodlands.
Rose Atlantic :: Spritzers aboard the famous Salt Spray Rose. Sinatra’s summer wind, dunegrass in the distance, rosehip, the white lighthouse.
Coriander :: Sparkling leaf, cubeb, green pepper, and cracked Ukrainian coriander seed. Cool spices & Black Sea breeze - like the hills above Odessa.
