D.S. & Durga Eau De Parfum | D.S.

By D.S. & Durga


A pure vision of India—Kashmiri saffron, frangipani, gardenia, yellow lotus attar, and damask rose with fine Sri Lankan sandalwood and vetiver.

A visit to a traditional perfume shop in India is a step back in time. Ornate cut crystal bottles hold jeweled colored liquids, attars, ambers, choyas, and ruhs. You are invited to sit while a salesperson brings them out one after the other, swiping oils onto your skin right from the glass stopper. More often than not, they are crammed into busy markets of crowded cities. The contrast is a reminder that beauty is all around us and can be found anywhere.

Traditional Indian perfume making should be considered a whole genre. Unique methods of extraction and indigenous plants are its hallmarks. Flowers, ambers, sandalwood, Himalayan herbs, southern spices - the diversity of plant life in India is staggering. To name a few of the most fragrant – tuberose, saffron, frangipani, kewda, ylang, gardenia, rose, cardamom, deodar, khus, mogra, motia.
