Brooklyn-based husband-and-wife team David and Kavi Moltz of D.S. & DURGA create perfume that gives the nose and its wearer access to unseen worlds. Their evocative offerings reference half-remembered myths and imaginary landscapes in the form of perfumes and candles like Breakfast in Leipzig, Mississippi Medicine, and Radio Bombay.
The lovely folks at El Cosmico have a way to describe the timeless coming together of nomadic friends in the high plains desert of West Texas—“Sweet Do Nothing.” It's a feeling that can be coaxed, but not forced. Things slow down, landscapes loom large, the far is near. This scent captures that hang—the tuning in among orange blossom, flowering cacti, Texas cedars, fig, and creosote.
