D.S. & Durga Perfume Giveaway for Scentuous Souls


If I could bathe myself in a scent it would be D.S. & Durga’s Grapefruit.

The simplicity of citrus may not sound exotic but the marriage of floral fruit with Jamaican Pirate Seeds from the high seas yields an intoxicating blend.

Created by an architect and a musician, the natural perfume line began as an experiment to make after-shaves and toners with tinctures of flowers, herbs and seeds. Blending these gifts of nature in their Brooklyn apartment, the couple produced small batches of perfumes and colognes for men and women. The line is now sold in high-end boutiques and even select Anthropologie shops.

The Grapefruit, which D.S. and I both wear and love, is a fairly light scent but not too light for night, or restricted to the summer months. But you might need protection when you dab some on for an evening out. Make sure the bodyguards stand at attention the moment you open the door to the bar and the breeze blows in a waft of your floral essence.

Heads will turn. Noses will inhale. Dreamy smiles will spread from ear to ear. There will be peace across the land.

Other personal favorites to sample: Orris Root, Cowgirl Grass and Cedar.

  10. Sounds awesome, Amy! I have been searching for a new scent, and I adore citrus! I’d also LOVE to find something a little pine-y… Any recommendations for a someone who wants to smell slightly like a Christmas tree?

  11. I am always on the search for lovely, organic perfumes and D.S. and Durga seem like the kind of scents I would fall for. I will look for them in the newly opened Anthropologie store in my city of Toronto.

  12. they all look intriguing – i’d like to try Rosa Americana, My Indian Childhood and Silent Grove— Linden Blossom is one of my new favs:)

  13. I could use a new fragrance. My bottle of Sunflower should be thrown in the compost pile with the rest of the garden.
    I need some WOW juice. At 65 you need all the help you can get.

  14. These products sound amazing! I’d love to try them.

  15. I couldn’t peruse the site, maybe I have an older versionof firefox, i was hoping to find something with bamboo. I love fresh perfumes, so the desciption of the grapefruit one attracted my nose. :P It sounds just the right degree of freshness, maybe i’ll get to smell one.

  16. Oh all of these sound lovely. I really like the Silent Grove just the kind of scent I like to wear and I like the My Indian Childhood as I just came from my bosses wedding who happen to be Indian. A great time I had so that scent stood out for me.

  17. Yay! Just found this page from Burda Style… I love eco friendly stuff (and make all of my own clothes etc from rescued things) so will totally check back!

  18. Sounds (and smells…) like heavenly fragrances, minus the toxins.

  19. I’ve been getting rid of my old, chemical-laden perfumes and am looking for something wonderful and natural to use!

  20. Ooooh “amber” sounds right up my tree-lined alley!

  21. These sound awesome. I would love to try them out.

  22. The Grapefruit sounds awesome. Even though I am a guy I like to wear unexpected scents. I also like to mix certain perfumes with men’s cologne to make more acceptable fragrances for myself.

  23. I love the Goddess Durga, she and Kali are certainly the two I embody the most…or at least wish to embody, most of the time.

    I like delicious scents too!

  24. I would love to try these scents. I used to be in love with FRESH scents, but as their company name suggests fresh ingredients, they fall short. So a replacement fragrance company would be terrific!
