Still Lives by Leta Sobierajski and Wade Jeffree

Setting the Mood for the Scent

Posted by Gestalten—06/2017

D.S. & Durga turn things they loved into scents. Starting their business in 2008, they handmade scented stories of cowboys, open terrain, Russian novel characters, folksongs, etc., and packed them into hand-stamped boxes in their Bushwick apartment, striving to do everything themselves, from design, to photography, to modeling. New York-based photographer Leta Sobierajski and graphic designer Wade Jeffree followed a similar path, when shooting the latest campaign for their signature scents, creating sets that would embody the mood and story of each fragrance.
