The world of fragrance is full of brands that have released signature scents inspired by libraries, jazz clubs, and all sorts of locations steeped in tradition and legend. I know the intention is not to be so literal but I’m usually a little disappointed when they don’t smell like the places in which they are named. I would love a scent that captures that all too familiar scent of old books. As for jazz clubs, I guess you wouldn’t want it to smell like cigarette smoke and gin. Everything, of course, is subjective and everyone’s interpretation is determined by their individual experience. However, in the case of Burning Barbershop, I do have very specific memories from childhood and what I believe to be an accurate memory of how they smell.

"D.S. & DURGA was founded by an architect and a musician. As pioneers in DIY Brooklyn, we started from scratch and did it our way (more Sid than Sinatra). We began by turning things we loved into scented stories of cowboys, open terrain, Russian novel characters, and folk songs.
(Their) boxes have been engineered to be foam-free, recyclable paper, and our shipping materials are biodegradable. The formulas are 100% vegan and made in NY."
