Siberian Snow Fragrance Reviews


Lovely mix of wood amber floral but no longevity or silliage. Sadly the journey ends with my sample.


Siberian Snow is mainly a woody all-season fragrance with some floral elements. Testing it out in the summer definitely leads me to believe that this could be comfortably worn in the summer but still be truer to a winter selection.

The mint and patchouli come off to me like pine and resin, but the prominence of these notes suggests a cold weather fragrance to me, especially the mint, which I do not associate with summer.

Decent on projection and longevity, Siberian Snow marks the last of a sample pack of D.S. & Durga from Luckyscent, and I'm left with a similar impression to most---namely, that it's another scent that's intriguing and smells very natural but simply may not be worth the price tag (they're all $125 or $145 for 50ml). The best in the line was one of the strongest, Bowmakers, so I may go back and try that, but like most, Siberian Snow is good but probably not good enough to consider buying.

For a while, the only place that carried DS & Durga in my town was in a store that cared little for presentation. Each time I visited, the place looked like closing time at WalMart with merchandise strewn all over haphazardly. This line was no exception, and you’d be hard pressed to find a bottle with a working sprayer to actually try them out. Needless to say, that store went under and I swore I’d return to DS & Durga at a later date, but my initial exposure to them was that they were a bit on the harsh side with some general balance issues. Anyhow, they’re now within reach again at a much better spot so I’m finally giving them the spin they deserve.

Unfortunately, Siberian Snow — a scent that got my interest from the description — was not the best choice to begin with. It’s ambroxan, patchouli, civet, something vaguely citric . . . and it’s terrible. It sits somewhere between the white musk powder of cashmeran and a fistful of civet replacer. It doesn’t change much and smells utterly sophomoric. There’s just not much more I can say about this one, but if you’re exploring the line for the first time, don’t make the mistake I made and sit this one out. Very bad.


DS & Durga scents are never safe; niche fragrances aim to suggest(sometime gently, sometimes strongly) to take a risk on an unforgettable olfactory journey, and with DS & D the results always pay off and shatter expectations.

This brilliant genderless composition guides one from the hard chilly crispness of a boreal forest wherein life's energy is all potential and stored-up, to subtle whispers of eros and warmth, wherein life is already dancing, so in this way it is very much a winter/spring scent, rather than a fall/winter scent.

The opening is exquisitely crisp and dry, a small fire of fallen leaves, roots, and twigs, oozing with amber, and this smoky haze is delicately coupled with the slightly sweet musk of a man who worked all day. And this man stands within this haze, chewing his favorite mint gum to help quell his anxiety of being in such a forbidding place. Incense and patchouli come into play as he begins to bed down for the evening and load his pipe.

The heart of the fragrance comes like a gossamer memory of the man's long-gone beloved, hinted at by soft rhythmic waves of fresh jasmine, which crest and break upon him, challenging the omnipotence of this incense haze of self-obsessed sadness that he's created in light of her absence.

The dry-down is EXTREMELY dry, and leads in with the ever-present amber but adds mild sandlewood and other woody accords, which instead of hit you head-on, envelop you in a peaceful darkness. memory and reality blend, and the man can rest easier now.


This perfume was rather disappointing. All I smelled here was strong amber, a bit of incense and potentially some wood. I was really hoping for something more multi-faceted, with mint in there and all, but it remained a balmy ambery scent for the 1-2 hours that it lasted on my skin. I liked the other perfumes by DS & Durga that I sampled at Anthropologie...but this wasn't as good.
