    I've used this site several times and have been happy with the service. Worth checking out to compare prices - the items I've bought have been about 60% the price compared to the UK. Use the promotional code SANTASHIP for free postage from the US.

    First Anniversary Combo Breaker
    I have ordered perfume oils from this company twice now, over a 3 year period:

    The website is a bit shoddy looking & the perfume comes in those plastic bottles which they display on their website but it is CHEAP and you get OIL, not eau de toilette.

    I got 5 bottles of 2 floz bottles (I think that's about 50ml?) and they last absolutely ages.

    Delivery is sent signed for so you can track it online & I paid about $40 including postage for 5x 2 fl oz bottles.

    I have been very impressed with a seller from the states on Ebay. They are called allshewants. I have purchased some Bond no 9 perfume which retails at Harrods for £145 for Approx £50 including the p&p charges.
    I know that the item is genuine. The smell is exactly the same and the box is far too elaborate to copy.
    I have also bought some Hermes - terre d'hermes for men which cost me £23 including delivery. About £40 here.
    QVC also has some very good offers and sets and if you buy now it has a money back guarantee until end of january. You can use all the product if you want so long as you send it back in original packaging. Great if someone does not like the perfume or you want to try something new.
    Everything you need is out there - you just need to ask..................:A

    I went to the local cash and carry. Got Lacoste Touch of Pink (15ml) for £8, YSL Jazz (25ml) for £7.60, Paul Smith Femme (25ml) for £10.60, and Hugo Boss Femme (25ml) for £7.60 + VAT. If you know anyone with a traders licence, it might be worth checking whether your local C&C has perfumes, because the prices were around £12-16 + VAT, for perfumes that are normally £45-50 in department stores. Ours says "No Personal Shopping" on the door, with everyone in there talking out loud about who certain gifts were for. :D
