The purely leptonic decays Ds→τν and Ds→μν are studied in a sample of four million hadronic Z decays collected with the ALEPH detector at the LEP e+e− collider from 1991 to 1995. The branching fractions are extracted from a combination of two analyses, one optimized to select Ds→τν decays with or , and the other optimized for Ds→μν decays. The results are used to evaluate the Ds decay constant, within the Standard Model: fDs=[285±19(stat)±40(syst)] MeV.
