EAU D'AMSTERDAM

SCENT OF THE ELM TREES

A good perfume takes you to another time and place.
Eau d’Amsterdam will bring you to the canals of Amsterdam,
where the elm trees blossom in springtime,
spreading their seeds as natural confetti.

Our Story

since 2014

The making of Eau d’Amsterdam

E

very great city has its iconic buildings – 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 Elm Trees. It is the first ever green perfume from the historical centre of Amsterdam: World Heritage in a Bottle.
