The opening does not tell the story of this frag. The opening is so bold and beautiful but after 30 minutes or so the sillage quickly turns subtle. Just about every niche/indie house has their reference smoky scent and I would assume that this is D.S & Durga's as it is sold out on Beautyhabit but it's totally lacking. Bunino said it best. Nice to sample but not FB worthy at $125 for 50ml.

This and Bowmakers have incredible openings but are both lacking something that makes them fb worthy.

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.

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
