The intriguing fragrance house that is D.S. Durga was founded in 2007 by David Moltz and his wife Kavi. Inspired by historical events, herbal remedies, and the alluring power of personal memories, the couple handcrafts small batch, unisex scents in their Brooklyn workshop. Every fragrance is created using raw materials such as plant extracts and natural oils.
