With my feet firmly back on English soil and the sound of bicycle bells still ringing in my ears, I thought I would share a
few far too many snaps from my trip to Amsterdam with the DKNY fragrance team. With the release of their new perfume, Be Delicious Skin – a fragrance with benefits, we headed to the Dutch capital for a global press event to celebrate this exciting launch and have the chance to interview the brains and creativity behind the new product as well as their gorgeous new brand ambassador – Marloes Horst.
I was lucky enough to be joined by a fabulous group of bloggers – Zoe, Lily, Ree and Jen, who mutually appreciated the beautiful surroundings of our hotel, The Conservatorium, and cooed just as much as me at the sight of that bath! The first day was very much business with a few interviews lined up followed by cocktails in Moooi art gallery and a sumptuous, never-ending dinner with the team and the perfume’s developer. The second day started slightly more leisurely with everyone taking time to prise themselves out of the most cushiony of beds and amble down for a fine spread of fruit and pancakes for breakfast. With caffeine and croissants fully digested we headed out in to the city and were treated to a canal boat tour which was a wonderful way to see the sights of Amsterdam from the comfort of a glass-topped boat, followed by yes, more food! The afternoon saw a spot of shopping on De 9 Straatjes whilst hot-stepping bicycles left, right and centre and taking countless photos of bridges and canals. It really was an amazing, whirlwind trip to a beautiful city with a great group of girls. I felt extremely fortunate to be there with the DKNY team and I will definitely be returning again even to just visit the Cat Boat – a floating sanctuary for stray and abandoned cats.
Have you visited this vibrant city?
