David Moltz and Kavi Ahuja are D.S. and Durga, respectively. His olfactory prowess comes from an early age, after winning a bottle of Pierre Cardin cologne in a summer camp raffle, while her background in architecture and design informs the look of their fragrances and packaging. Together they create small batches of hand-crafted colognes and perfumes from exotic, premium-sourced ingredients. Unlike that bottle of mass-produced man musk D.S. won at camp, he and Durga have brought a sophisticated artisanal approach already popular in clothing and accessories to the niche of fine fragrance.
