Last year, Brooklyn-based indie perfumers D.S. & Durga launched Longshoreman’s Cologne Water, a new fragrance in collaboration with clothing retailer J. Crew. Longshoreman’s Cologne follows 2013's Homesteader's Cologne, also for J. Crew.
This exclusive-to-J.Crew cologne hails from D.S. & Durga, a Brooklyn-based company that creates colognes using small-batch production methods, premium raw materials and inspiration that runs the gamut from herbal medicine tomes to pre-industrial workshops in New England. The result? Distinctive, nuanced scents in bottles too handsome to hide in the medicine cabinet. This fragrance is inspired by the 1930s docks of New York: oiled ropes, seawater and barrels of liquor being loaded off the gangplanks of iron ships. It has top notes of cedar and cardamom, a floral heart of iris and magnolia and base notes of tobacco, pine and pomegranate.
D.S. & Durga + J. Crew Longshoreman’s Cologne Water is 50 ml for $106 at J. Crew.
