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 bands 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 that inspired the song. 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 shed the specificity of its figgy verisimilitude. That's when a perfect blend of base notes - iris, coconut, tonka and moss - leave cool, velvet-soft hint of wood on skin. Earthy and addictive.
Bergamot, green leaf, pear stem, fig, coconut milk, iris, blond woods, tonka bean and moss.
