Studio Visit: DS & Durga

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

We have loved everything about David and Kavi since we met them-- and the charming couple behind the fragrance line DS & Durga has evolved quite a bit since our owner, Shana, first met them over a decade ago. This power couple has expanded their small perfume line into a fragrance empire, all while having and raising two beautiful children. By staying true to their passion and love for what they do and each other, David and Kavi are absolutely an inspiration, and we are so happy to call them friends. With the launch of their new branding, packaging, and website, we thought we should pay a (long overdue) visit to David’s studio to see what the two have been up to and play catch up.
