DS & Durga; Italian Citrus
When the whole world feels like the sultriest of saunas, it makes intuitive sense to spritz yourself with light and bright scents that will cut through the heaviness of the heat. This scent from DS & Durga is a "bracing cologne of coastal Italian citrus rinds—chinotto, blood orange, cold-pressed lemon and green mandarin with ambrette seed & clean musk." Clean musk? Yes, please. Plus, I would advise everyone to wear a scent which is in part inspired by Melville's Billy Budd. Nobody reads Melville anymore, and they really should, especially Billy Budd. I mean, I'm overly partial to stories with no proper ending, but still. It's worth reading.
DS & Durga; Italian Citrus, $96
Also available at Woodley & Bunny, 196 N 10th Street, Williamsburg
