@dsanddurga is a New York-based indie house that began in 2007, their immersive fragrances incorporating inspirations from music, nature, myth, culture and travel. Founded by the married partnership of David Seth Molton (who was a musician before becoming a self-trained perfumer) and Kavi Ahuja (who was an architect), both @fragrantmaven and @outspokenbeautynicola have long loved wearing their fragrances, and we’re delighted to have both David and Kavi on the show this week! In this wide-ranging and revealing interview, David and Kavi talk us through how they began (making scented potions from a Victorian manual) their diverse inspirations, David self-training as a perfumer and Kavi’s design skills, through to opening the flagship store and their fragrant plans for the future…PS: Extraordinary stories about meeting @brianeno and Black Francis from @pixiesofficial (who wears - and loves - the fragrance inspired by him)!Burning Barbershop Cowboy GrassDebaserRadio BombayI Don’t Know What El CosmicoBistro WatersLeatherizeChanel Les Exclusifs

Wonderful , always such a joy to listen to both of you. I spent hours in Frau Tonis and fell in love with several of the scents. Wusterwind is my favourite, this is the first time I've seen the brand mentioned in the UK. Any perfume nerds heading to Berlin should make time for a long visit. Thank you , I love your podcast
