D.S. & Durga
D.S. & Durga Vio Volta is an electric violet fragrance which came about (according to David Moltz) "from working with materials just for the fun of it. I was messing around with this chemical that smells like really weird candy rhubarb — super powerful — and this other new chemical that’s really strong, amber extreme. They say it’s the strongest woody amber. And those two things opened up this type of spaceship-like violet. I brought it more into a cedar-y incense and patchouli to make it not fully synthetic. It just had a very vibratory effect.”
Vio Volta is a unique interpretation of violet and is very carnal and sexy. It features notes of rhubarb, patchouli, cedar, amber, incense and violet. Vio Volto is an eau de parfum, edp.
Fragrantica: "It's so unusual, synthetic (but not in a bad way), so zingy and strange that the sum of its parts amount to an offbeat charm"
colognoisseur: "Vio-Volta is something that can only come from our independent perfume community. You might hate it. you might love it, you might appreciate it, you might admire it; but you should try it."
