MILLS - 50ML Eau de Parfum
50ML of what may just be the best thing you will ever smell; MILLS Eau de Parfum, by Van De Zotte. Packed in a handcrafted wooden box.
When you think about Holland, you think about windmills. Which is quite obvious since most of the Dutch landscape was created using windmills. Our soil nor our wealth would not have been as prosperous had we not once had over 10.000 of those beautiful mills working our land. Unfortunately currently only 1200 windmills remain.
We cherish the craft of the Dutch miller and so we’ve created a fragrance of the beautiful mix of scents from spices which used to be ground by our windmills.
The main ingredients are clove, cinnamon and pepper. And even we did not think these would bond together so well. You will also experience notes of bergamot, vetiver, saffron, tobacco and leather, which results in this dashing and spicy fragrance.
Our perfumes are not specifically made for men or women. Marketing helps create the concept of 'male' or 'female' fragrances. But the fact is they act differently on anyone's skin. So all of our perfumes are unisex.
Eau de Parfum is a very strong form of perfume, containing about 20% of pure perfume essence. Just one to two sprays on each wrist in the morning will keep you smelling amazing for the entire day.
Windmills are many tourists' main reason to visit the Netherlands. Its majestic appearance and stories obviously make people want to visit them, and to take part of it home. Which up 'till now was impossible. That is why we developed our MILLS perfume. We wanted people to be able to bring home part of the windmills: Their scent.
Old, Dutch windmills have a wonderful smell.
Imagine old wood like oak, douglas and cedar. Combined with the smell of jute bags filled with whole and ground spices like clove, nutmeg, pepper, pimento and cinnamon, which used to be ground in these mills. Topped off with some tobacco from the millers' smoking pipe.
And there you go: MILLS.
