  • From niche perfumery, D.S & Durga’s fragrant homage to India through their perfume D.S. to an art deco rocking chair from Calcutta that will help you kick back and relax
  • Dior’s Rose De Vents bib necklace with designer Christian Dior’s lucky charm - the star - might bring you as much luck as it did to him

A-SCENT TO HEAVEN | D.S. by D.S. & Durga

As the niche New York-origin perfumery enters the country, take a whiff of one of their signature perfumes, an olfactory ode to India. The notes of Kashmiri frangipani, yellow lotus, saffron and Sri Lankan sandalwood evoke a sense of nostalgia.

Available at Scentido, Mumbai; 24,500
