A voluminous statement, Durga is a floral, green and full-bodied scent, the rarest thing that D.S. & Durga has ever produced.
Bold tuberose with strong doses of orange blossom, jasmine and ylang ylang form a neon superstructure that is incandescent, hypnotic. Green tuberose conveys the unripe mouthwatering glory of verdant fruit, lactic and barely sweet.
Tuberose blossoms into the solid gold of ylang ylang, an incredibly vivacious, floral that affords a sleek, comforting core from which the brightest elements of this scent explode. Melon is a coiled, if cool energy, both honeydew-sweet and pickled-watermelon puckering.
Orris butter is evasive yet indisputable, a slickening powder that hydrates in this mouthwatering climate. Jasmine sambac moves: imagine Yo-Yo Ma on the cello and you’re approximating the emotional depth of this note in Durga.
As jasmine grounds, chrysanthemum winds outward, as refreshing and delicately musical as the sound of a trickling spring water. Orange blossom and a fine musc co-author a balanced calm that balances the searing, visionary intelligence of this fragrance.
Incomparably narcotic, Durga triggers full swoon. Be prepared for a serious haul of fainting, ardent admirers to fall in your wake.
