Answers to your Questions


Why should I buy a bottle of air?
Air. It is so essential, yet so underrated. Have you ever experienced catching a whiff of air, and suddenly being immersed in a flurry of vivid memories? More than anything, a bottle of air will help you revive those precious memories of your visit to Amsterdam. Besides, in a world of carbon emissions and greenhouse gasses, it’s always a good idea to have a unit of pure air in stock. As we say in Amsterdam: It’s better to have 1 bottle of air on the shelf, than 10 souvenir magnets on the refrigerator.

Why is there a number stamped on my bottle?
The number indicates the chronological sequence of bottling. The higher the number, the fresher the air.

Why is air from Amsterdam of such a great quality?
Because we use little coal power and many bicycles.

Where has the air been captured?
All our air is farmed locally. Our DJI Mavic drone has been taking off at ‘Westerkerk’, cruising over a confidential circuit, covering the following areas:

  • Jordaan & The West
  • The Red Light District & Amsterdam Central Station
  • Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & The Eastern islands
  • Vondelpark & The Old South

How much air can I consume daily?
The average adult inhales and exhales approximately 7.5 litre of air per minute. That adds up to a total average consumption of 11,000 litre a day. Our bottles contain only 0.5 litre of air and we suggest to consume that quantity in one go. If you need larger bottles, just send us your requirements.

Will I get high from inhaling Distinct City Smell?

But what about this CBD oil and terpenes?
Distinct City Smell’s corks have been hand-infused with a Indica terpenoid profile. This does not sound very healthy, but don’t panic, it’s organic.

What is the best way to store a bottle of air?
Our product is best kept unopened, in a bright place, full in sight.

Is there an ultimate consumption date?
No. As far as we know, air remains inhalable for infinity.
