دواء الميسيسبي من دار D.S. & Durga الأمريكية للرجال
Mississippi Medicine D.S. & Durga for men
كعادة هذه الدار التي تقدم عطورها بفلسفات بيئية أيدلوجية أصدرت هذا العطر المستوحى من منطقة الميسيسبي وهو أهم وأطول أنهار أمريكا الشمالية ومعناه بلغة قبيلة "أوجيبوا" من الهنود الحمر "النهر العظيم"
وأنا أرجح من رائحة العطر أنها ليست لدواء إقليمي ولكنها رائحة تصاحب طقوسا علاجية قديمة كانت تمارسها هذه القبيلة من الهنود الحمر.
البداية عنيفة قاتمة قد تبدو مبهمة تسيطر عليها أخشاب البتولا البلوطية المطلية بالقطران وهذه وحدها كفيلة لكي تشعرك بوجود لمحة جلدية عنيفة غامضة كرائحة الخيام الجلدية المخروطية للهنود الحمر.
هل سرت يوما داخل أحد الدهاليز الخشبية لأحد المعابد القديمة ورائحة بخورية قوية تنساب إليك من بهو المعبد الرئيسي مختلطة برائحة الأخشاب القوية المدخنة التي انطلقت بفعل لهيب المشاعل الزيتية المعلقة على جدران هذا الممر الطويل.
وخطوة تلو الأخرى ستكتشف ستشعر بشيء يتكسر تحت قدميك لتكتشف أنها شجيرات جافة من نبات السرو العشبي تنطلق منها رائحة نفاذة مدخنة كلما تكسرت وسحقتها الأقدام.
وتنطفيء المشاعل الجدارية ليزداد المشهد غموضا وإثارة.
وتشعر بأن شيئا رقيقا يلامس وجهك كلما تحركت
نعم إنها هي .. وليس عليك سوى أن تغلق عينيك للحظات لترى كل ما حولك قد اكتسى باللون البنفسجي البراق
إنها بتلات زهرة البنفسج التي ربما كانت رائحتها مختلطة أول الأمر مع رائحة الأخشاب لكنها أصبحت الآن أكثر تميزا ووضوحا.
العطر مثير وغامض وسيبدو غير مستساغ للبعض وشديد الإبهار لعدد أقل فحبكة التوليفة تثير الإعجاب.
لكنه بشكل عام وأكيد يحتاج لتجربة متأنية جدا من الجميع قبل الشراء
وأعتذر إن قلت أن الكثيرين لن يتفهموه أو يدركوا جماله "اختلاف أذواق " بكل تأكيد
العطر مكتوب أنه بتركيز أو دو كولون ولكن هذا لا يعني أنه ضعيف التركيز بل على العكس تماما فهو عطر قوي ولكن ربما لعنف وقوة مكوناته أصدرته الدار بهذا التركيز وهذا يحسب لها، لأن التركيز لو ازداد قليلا لأصبح العطر خانقا غير مستساغ.
العطر شرقي بخوري بلمسات حسية رائعة يستحق التجربة وربما الاقتناء.


I admire D.S. & Durga perfumes for embracing capital 'A' Americana instead of pretending to be continental. I ordered 5 samples to see if I could find a full-bottle-worthy match.

The listed notes are accurate. The opening is birch and tar, and the dry down is smoke and evergreen woods. Boyfriend liked it fine, but it wasn't a favorite.

I could see this being very sexy on a man, and I do *like* Mississippi Medicine, but it isn't really me.


An interesting mix of wood notes (cedar, birch) and incense, probably not the heaviest/strongest offering D.S. & Durga that I've smelled. Surely more on the cold weather side but also workable in warmer weather, Mississippi Medicine is doesn't lean so heavily on the incense as it does on the woody/resinous notes. Like other scents in the house, it smells very natural, never surprisingly sweet or sour, but almost a patchouli-esque earthiness. Probably not one that I'd buy but with decent projection and longevity, it might prove worthwhile. This makes me to go back and smell some of their other scents to compare.

6 out of 10


A wonderful and unique fragrance. Smells just like an old church or at least the old church in my mind. Heavy Incense/cypress and subtle smells of earth, wood and old books. Longevity was a few hours, 4-5 at best which is a shame, at first this hits hard and you think it would last all day. Sillage is strong at first but quickly subsides.

Worth sampling and deciding for yourself, this is an incredible fragrance.


عطر مميز من اجمل عطور هذه الدار اللبان مقدم فيه بطريقة فيها جانب روحاني شعرت به وعندما قرأت اكثر حول العطر وجدت انه مستوحى من طقوس معينه لممارسة غريبه...نفسي اكتب اكثر ولكن الحاله املزاجية لاتسمح لذلك ..
هذه الدار رائعه بحق في كل رسالة واسلوب مميز...ومع ذلك اسعار معقوله الى حد ما..


Love the name of this fragrance but love the smell even more. One sniff and all you can say is, "Momma, there goes that man!" Wanna question the integrity of this medicine? This has the toughness of an inmate in a orange jumpsuit. This opens with an unapologetic medicinal peppered cypress with plenty of smoke to confirm that Mississippi is indeed burning. Just picture fireplace soot on a bed of blackened tar. The developmental process isn't all doom and gloom because if you meditate on what's happening, you'll notice something faintly fruity which may come across like an olfactic illusion. It's important to note that M&M is a eau de cologne with toilette strength. I got about 5hrs out of this...Honorable mention.


I have to disagree with the folks who find this to be a 'very long lasting' scent. Apply at 8am gone by lunch is my experience. Perhaps on a younger body.

MM reminds me of growing up in the South. Of burning leaves on a fall day. That smell with the the leaves burn into a stand of pine licking up the leaves and just a hint of scorch on the trees.

A scent of pine tar, grass, leaves and and smoke. Even dry down. Just wished it lasted longer.

DS & Durga is my favorite perfumery. Their scents are unique, rarely comparable and take a bit getting used to. You won't be accused of smelling like someone else (not wearing DS and Durga) For the adventurous
