DS & Durga

Popular niche fragrance brand DS & Durga launched in the DIY Brooklyn of 2007, led by husband-and-wife team David and Kavi Moltz. Together they've built this pioneering and intriguing perfume brand with David (D.S.) as the Perfumer and Kavi (Durga) the visual Creative Director and CEO. 

That means D.S. is really the perfumer. He taught himself how to make perfume by immersing himself in all things fragrant. He is passionate about translating musical and literary spaces into scent. Each fragrance is conceived and constructed by D.S. with no middleman or interpretation from an outside perfumer.

Kavi approaches her work like an architect – her trade by training. Thinking in angles, light, shadow, and texture, she seeks clarity in form and function. She builds buildings for the scents, cities for the DS & Durga universe.
