Skins, a beauty and fragrance paradise in Amsterdam, Holland. Famous for the fine niche beauty labels they sell. Skins Cosmetics brought about a true revolution in the Dutch cosmetics retail in 2000. It was the very first store in the Netherlands where only niche brands were sold that were not previously available in the Netherlands.
The founders of Skins Cosmetics had a clear vision: only perfume, make-up and skin care brands that were not yet well known in the Netherlands, but had (and have) an iconic status abroad.
Skins Cosmetics is constantly looking for the most special, innovative and undiscovered beauty products. To the brands that have been developed with the greatest care and attention. By the makers who are pure and only strive for the best. They want to share these discoveries with anyone who likes to look further and who is looking for beauty brands that are slightly less known.
One of these brands is Vilhelm Perfumery. Founded in 2015 by Swedish New Yorker Jan Ahlgren, this luxurious contemporary perfume house is based in New York and has perfumes made in Paris. Vilhelm Perfumery currently has about 25 different scents. Vilhelm is a young perfume house, but has already built up a considerable fan base with original, luxury perfumes.
Now the American Vilhelm Parfumerie is joining forces with the Dutch Skins Cosmetics, resulting in an Eau de Parfum with delicious wood tones. A warm comfortable fragrance that smells very attractive to both men and women.

Skins x Vilhelm, an Eau de Parfum with top notes of fresh bergamot, juniper black tea. Furthermore, Skins x Vilhelm is a fusion of the heart notes lavender and leather in combination with creamy sandalwood, burning palo santo and blooming yellow flowers.
Vilhelm founder Jan Ahlgren always builds his fragrances around a story. Stories inspired by memories and important moments in Ahlgren’s life. Every scent is, as it were, part of his biography, on a feeling and emotional level. A story that this time takes place in Amsterdam. Imagine a scene straight from David Lynch’s imagination….
You are in front of a very special hotel…. Night falls behind you through the canals, whispering the promises of the city’s many pleasures. The doors open…. A touch of sandalwood lures you in…. Painted eyes and a soft voice greet you like smoke from burning Palo Santo curls in the air…. You could swear that the yellow flowers sprayed on the wall bloom before your very eyes. Your phone, usually a lifeline, is forgotten in your hand as you awaken to this new reality. Welcome to a world unlike any other, where the only currency is the adrenaline rush of opportunity and curiosity.
