Re: Cheap Aftershave (perfume)



  • I just posted something on another part of the site about - they sent me an email offerring a Free designer fragrance worth £35 with every fragrance or gift set - I ordered a £15.99 fragrance and got a £35 one free. I used UB/94 as a promotion code but I think it is open to all.

    I am going to order another 4 fragrances because my understanding of the offer is you get a free one with every product - so I should get 4 freebies!!

    Cheap Xmas for me this year. :D
  • I find The Perfume Shop in most high streets to be the cheapest most of the time. It always has great offers and is easy to find what you need, it is nice to see the items that you are buying and can get them gift wrapped for free!! :) They often do fragrances that are rarely available elsewhere, like Ralph Lauren Safari!
    No reliance should be placed on the above.
  • Can you clarify what the exact difference between a tester bootle and a 'normal' bottle of perfume is, please?

    Is it a visible difference or a smell difference?



    there is no difference in the smell, however, the packaging may say sample - tester - but SHOULD always be unopened. In some cases these items may not ship with a lid, but that is not really a problem.

    This advice is given thanks to "the Mrs" ;D

    Hope this helps
    If saving money is nice, sharing the knowledge is better :-)
  • Yes, I remembered ...though only after I posted my last mail <typical>! They frequently do generous offers giving out freebies with orders (there's often a minimum spend of approx £30, but not always) so it's worth subscribing to their e-mailshots to keep informed of any offers they're currently doing. They don't have a huge variety of perfumes though. T. J. Hughes also do great deals on perfumes and skin care (amongst others), but again have a more limited selected. I don't think you can buy from them online though but you can find your nearest store at

  • re Vera Wang.

    just to let you know the brand owners of Vera Wang Unilever (also own Calvin klein & Cerrutti ) currently do not authorise any online sale of the vera wang barnd in the UK

    the only place authoised to offer a mail order service is Harrods in london on 0207 730 1234

    vera wang distribution is currently very limited and closely guarded to avoid the problems that unilever have with their other brands such as calvin klein which are widely available outside of the authorised retailers network.

  • The prices seem to be ok wirth TJ hughes but those are small bottels 25ml and 35ml, plus i didnt seem to see an online shop, and i dont live near to a TJ Hughes.

    But i found a website which has very cheap prices on most of their products and have some very good deals on. I bought a whole bunch of stuff off them... they only charge £1 for shiping no matter what you order or where you are.
    It was a really good service.
  • I bought 50 ml of 'Epuption' eau de toilette from Lidl for the incredible (standard) price of £3.99 or thereabouts. It's very good too, at least for everyday use.

    Does anyone else have suggestions for 'everyday' aftershave at anywhere near that price?

    I will keep £20-£30++ branded products for 'special occasions' but, having found the Lidl product, would never waste branded products again, on everyday use. The Lidl aftershave is almost as good, anyway.
