D.S. & Durga, the Brooklyn based perfume house founded by David Seth Moltz and Kavi Moltz are launching their first candle collection. Perfumer David Seth Moltz (D.S.) lives up to his reputation as one of the most innovative young nose in the world with this edgy trio of home scents.
Designed to smell like the interior of a 1985 Mercedes Benz 300 Turbo Diesel with saffron tan vinyl ‘leather’ seats, walnut paneling, puffs of warm diesel smoke and Fleetwood Mac on the radio.
Dwarf pine wood, atlas cedar smoke and oak ash curl around birch, cedarwood and copaiba resin all sinking into birch-tar. As the name suggests; it’s a portable fireplace.
The spirit lamp is a mixture of hot metal and long shadows with peach water, white ginger and coconut milk with a hint of musk and smoky black bohea tea.
Priced £58 each at Liberty.
