• eau d’amsterdam
glass bottle with diffuser .50 ml
scent of leaves and wood of the elm tree.
every great city has its iconic building. and real great cities also have their own signature tree. In Berlin we walk ‘Unter den Linden’, Paris is full of Plane trees and Amsterdam’s signature tree is the Elm. Elm trees have defined Amsterdam’s cityscape for centuries, they are part of the Unesco World Heritage Site: the canal district of the historical city centre. We love the Elm trees: they bring nature to our city and tell us what season it is.
and every spring we are amazed by the way they spread their seeds all over Amsterdam – like spring snow. This magical natural phenomenon inspired us to create Eau d’Amsterdam, Scent of the Canal Trees. It is the first ever green perfume from the historical centre of Amsterdam: World Heritage in a Bottle.
