UNIQUE BRANDS INTERNATIONAL GmbH, based in Essen, Germany offers a specialized service in the distribution of luxury goods and lifestyle concepts in the premium segment. With its focus in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands, the company is increasingly orientated toward the international market.
c.l.u.b. UNIQUE BRANDS INTERNATIONAL only sells brands that, through their innovation and exclusivity, prove their unique selling position on the market. From this starting point begins the best possible positioning of the brand within the business as well as the international structure of the distribution.
As a distributor to selected dealers we impose the highest standards upon ourselves. The management as well as the regularly trained and highly qualified team are always on a loyal and cooperative partnership with over 400 handpicked and privately owned perfumeries. With our own logistics in Essen, we distinguish ourselves through fast delivery in perfect quality and the best possible service.
