otentic perfumes amsterdam is the new perfume expert in town!
There’s a new kid in town! A new perfumery, Otentic Perfumes Amsterdam, is now open in the Nine Streets. We noticed the store by its clean and bright interior. And as soon as we found out that they sell perfumes here, we of course had to drop by during our lunch breaks ;-) Our visit took a bit longer than a ‘lunchbreak’, because a visit to Otentic Perfumes is a whole new experience!
The experience brought to you by Otentic is all about a complete new concept. In the store you find eight specific perfume styles, all distracted from one ‘mother perfume’ Anno 1785. And every style is subdivide in eight different perfumes. The 8 styles vary from the delicious Fyori (floral an romantic) to the strong Grasslands (filled with dry, spicy and earth scents). In total you find 64 different fragrances here, all distracted from the original scent Anno 1785. How cool is that?
By trying all the different styles, you will eventually find your new favourite fragrance. All the different scents have their own special glass scent tubes, so you don’t have to spray with perfume. And did you find a nice fragrance? Just tap the screen in front of you and all the ingredients are shown. Super handy! The Otentic-system makes the choice of your new perfume not only clear and easy, but also super fun! The interactivity makes it feel like a game! And it’s affordable! For 50 ml you pay in between €69,- and €79,- and for 100 ml you pay €94 and €109,-.
