Indie brand DS & Durga has launched Vio-Volta, a new fragrance that "comes from working with materials just for the fun of it".
“I was messing around with this chemical that [smells like] really weird candy rhubarb — super powerful — and this other new chemical that’s really strong, amber extreme. They say it’s the strongest woody amber. And those two things opened up this type of spaceship-like violet. I brought it more into a cedar-y incense and patchouli to make it not fully synthetic,” [David] Moltz said. “It just had a very vibratory effect.”
DS & Durga Vio-Volta is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum ($175 / $260).
