Blaring Pixies music on a hot day – that’s the inspiration for D.S. and Duga’s woody fig scent, Debaser. For anyone who has heard Pixies’ front man Black Francis’ wail, the thought of a fig scent may seem an odd choice. But Debaser, named after the band’s 1989 hit, is not a typically creamy, lactic or fruity fig. It’s a bright, hot green scent that opens with a waft of fig tree broiling in the August sun. It’s an energetic, warm, bold and woody fig.
Debaser’s refrain, “I am un chien andalusia, ” is a nod to the title of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí’s classic surrealist film. Black Francis said of Buñuel, “I wish Buñuel were still alive. He made this film about nothing in particular. The title itself is a nonsense.” D.S. and Durga’s Debaser is therefor a tribute to a song about a film about “nothing in particular.” And fittingly, it’s a fragrance that becomes even more compelling in its drydown, when it sheds the specificity of its figgy verisimilitude. That’s when a perfect blend of base notes – iris, coconut, tonka and moss – leave a cool, velvet-soft hint of wood on skin. Earthy and addictive.
All products are produced to order. We typically specify two clear working days from the date of order for production and dispatch on the third day for ALL orders. This is intended as a guide and production can slip during busy times of the year. If your order is time sensitive, please contact us for an accurate production and dispatch time frame.
Occasionally we may not have sufficient volume from a single bottle to complete your order. To avoid mixing bottles, we will wait until we have sufficient stock to produce all your order from a single bottle. Again, you will be notified by email if this is the case, and a full refund will be made if this creates an unacceptable delay for you.
