Mindful Monday: time to take a deep breath and stop. running. around.! Gigot is here with some Mindful inspiration. Introducing today: D.S. & Durga.
When practising being more mindful and ‘in the moment’ one of the things you can do is to focus on your senses. What do you hear? see? taste? A pleasant smell in particular, has the power to calm you down, bring you more at ease and can be a good focus point to calm down your thoughts and breathing.
Unfortunately there is no digital smelling technology yet, because I’d love to press a ctrl-alt-smell button when browsing the website of D.S. and Durga.
D.S. and Durga is the brand of a couple that make perfume and cologne in small batches. D.S. is the fragrance master, Durga the reason why their packaging design and branding is spot-on. Your eyes here will be just as pleased as your nose!
Their line of fragranced candles especially feed my curiosity. The ‘portable fireplace’ for an instant romantic vibe is so clever. Or take your Fiat Panda out for a spin with an ’85 Diesel fragranced candle lit on board. Would it work to make your Citroën C4 feel more like a classic car?
“On saffron tanned leather seats, in clothes that look like rugs,
singing “we must never break the chain”. Laquered chetsnut
paneling with puffs of burning fuel.”
With this fragrance subscription, I feel like you could lit this candle and feel relaxt anywhere. Enjoy your Mindful Monday!
