Yes, we ship to over 220 countries. Please use our shipping calculator to see if we ship to your country.

The differences are simply a matter of the amount or concentration of oils in the fragrance. The highest concentration is in pure perfume (or parfum). Next would be Eau de Parfum, then Eau de Toilette, and finally Eau de Cologne. Some manufacturers make a solid perfume, solid perfume is as strong as a pure perfume however it is in a gel-like consistency.

Eau De Toilette and Eau De Cologne are generally interchangeable, especially in Men’s fragrances. After Shave has the least amount of oils. The higher the concentration the longer your fragrance will last, and the less you need to apply.

Testers are even more discounted than the fancy boxed versions and are great if you don’t have a need for the fancy box. Testers are 100% authentic, fresh and completely full just like the original fragrance, however they are meant for the counter in a department store. Testers often come in a plain white box but sometimes they do not have a cap or a box. The savings on the packaging means you save even more!

We stock thousands of fragrances, many of these have been discontinued. Our buyers travel the globe purchasing entire inventories of hard to find or discontinued fragrances to store in our temperature and humidity controlled warehouse.

There are several reasons why some fragrances last and others don’t. You can experiment to find out which one might be your issue and make changes:

Your skin. Believe it or not, your epidermis could be the culprit. If you have dry skin, you probably don’t have the necessary oils the perfume needs to absorb into your skin. Therefore, the fragrance will evaporate faster. Try applying unscented moisturizer before applying your fragrance. Or, you can try “layering” scents, if your favorite fragrance also comes in a shower wash or body lotion variety.

Concentration. Perfumes come in various concentrations. The higher the concentration, the more fragrance — and the longer the scent will last. For example, an eau de parfum will always be more concentrated than an eau de toilette. A body spray would be much less concentrated than an eau de toilette. Remember, though, that concentrations vary among product lines. Generally, the more alcohol in the scent, the faster it will lose its scent.

Notes. Notes are what make up a fragrance. Most fragrances have top, middle and base notes. These notes are scents with different molecular weights that develop at different rates when applied to the skin. Top notes are the first you smell in a perfume. They evaporate more quickly than the rest of the scents. The middle notes are the “body” of the perfume and take longer to develop on the skin than top notes. The base notes are the final scent to develop and last the longest. They’re also a fixative that slows down the evaporation of the top and middle notes, making the overall scent last longer. The stronger the base note, the longer the fragrance lasts. Some cheap fragrances don’t even bother with base notes — and, unsurprisingly, they don’t last long at all.

In general, the answer is up to your order Volume and Value. The detailed version is like that: It is depending to which country you are ordering and how much on Value is your order. In my experience orders with a certain small size and Value of not more than 50 – 80 EUR will mostly pass without any Costumes duty. Bigger shipments who exceed the specific Value may apply for costumes duty. Your courier service will do the handling of the costumes clearance process. As an example, an order contains three units of Perfume total Value 150 USD could cost you round about 10-18 EUR flat rate in the EU.

Our Goods are known as “grey” products or parallel imports. According to the International Trademark Association (INTA), these kind of goods are genuine in that they have been manufactured by, or for or under license from, the brand owner. The discount comes because they are not being sold through official channels, and are usually brought in from another country.

Is it legal to buy Grey market products?
You will not be breaking the law if you buy grey market goods, according to Jim McDonnell, a senior associate from lawyers DLA Piper. “From a brand perspective, as long as you’re genuinely importing as a consumer you are not doing anything illegal,” he says.
