Indie brand DS & Durga has launched two new limited edition fragrances, The Greatest Cologne of All Time and Roman Fruit Sellers.
The Greatest Cologne of All Time ~ "Cologne is a timeless balancing act of citrus, flowers, & Mediterranean herbs. Since 2009, I've been making and remaking my version of the original cologne formula we all know and love. This is it. A must have for any complete fragrance collection. — D.S." With neroli, bergamot, mandarin, lavender, orange blossom, rosemary, cedrat, petitgrain and copal. $190.
Roman Fruit Sellers (not shown) ~ "I visited Rome in the oppressive July heat with all the other American tourists. One day I was walking through winding ancient streets and came upon the fiore de campo. For 150 years, it has been filled with vendors selling lucious Italian fruits all arranged in beautiful boxes. Color, fragrance, and sweet flavor are everywhere. This fume is that experience. I've never made something so fruity gourmand. I use strawberry, mandarin, and black currant extracts for a wonderful realness. A touch of poplar like the crates that hold the fruits give the base a nice structure too.— D.S." Additional notes include apricot, bergamot, black cherry, violet and "far off incense". $400.
DS & Durga The Greatest Cologne of All Time and Roman Fruit Sellers are available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
