About Scotch & Soda
Scotch & Soda has been around since the ‘80s, but the Amsterdam-based fashion brand as we know it today originates in a brave new start in 2001, when three new owners joined forces and brought to the table their broad experience and shared love of making great apparel. After Scotch & Soda was re-launched for Spring Summer 2002, Scotch Shrunk was added for Spring Summer 2008. Literally shrinking men’s styles to little brother or son sizes was a completely new take on kids wear, and Shrunk made waves no-one at Scotch had dared dream of. This success was soon followed by the launch of a women’s collection: Maison Scotch entered the market with the Spring Summer 2010 collection, celebrating classic French style and adding a touch of tough street wear elements.
In late 2010, the first Scotch & Soda perfume was launched by the name of Barfly, making a dream of the brand come true. Little sister R’Belle launched soon after in Spring Summer 2011, exploring a unique and modern take on girl’s apparel. Scotch & Soda’s youngest and most ambitious project Amsterdams Blauw hit stores in December 2010; a compact, high profile denim collection that could only come from the Scotch kitchen.
Scotch & Soda currently boasts over 100 stores worldwide, more than 7000 other sales points and a fully up to date online presence with and integrated webstore, blog and social media. The brand is classic in many ways, but young and progressive when it comes to bringing great clothes to the market place.
Barfly is the signature fragrance of Scotch & Soda, a perfume that truly represents the brand's desire for individuality and love of free spirits. Much like the clothes, this scent has its own character and is full of details. Featuring fresh top notes of citrus-herb, middle notes of lavender and jasmine, and notes of sandalwood, musk and Madagascar.
