The New Fragrance Frontier
Americans dream of open spaces. It's why we turn road trips into rituals and make pilgrimages to canyons. Even if we're accustomed to city life, the prospect of endless coastlines, piney clearings, and desert immensity tugs at us. This, in an unintended way, has complicated our relationship with fragrance. The purpose of a perfume, after all, is to draw others into our orbit. But that can feel intrusive. Pushy. Americans have never quite found a way to reconcile our desire for a broad wingspan with the close and encompassing nature of fragrance. Until now.

D.S. & Durga El Cosmico is a play between the desert's lunar landscape and a confusion of stars. With scruffy notes of pine, sumac, oak, and sand, it has a dusky quality that opens up and scatters wide.
