Brooklyn-based independent cologne maker D.S. & Durga produces top-quality scents in limited handmade batches.
Perfumers D.S. & Durga describe the origins of the burning barbershop fragrance: "A fire broke out in the Curling bros. barbershop in Westlake, NY in 1891. All the shaving tonics with their spearmint, lime, vanilla, and lavender burned. A charred bottle was found half full, it smelled like this."
