After my second successful purchase in Perfume Emporium, decided to make that their packages are coming fast and without import tax to make a new purchase and have let more scent in stock. I also wanted to take advantage of the coupon PD1915, giving 15% discount and also announced here in a while Skooter Blog. Furthermore, was already counting on the fact that the ignorant people that abounds in this country probably reelegeria Dilma and the dollar would soar as a result of corruption scandals and disastrous economic policy that the PT is starring. So I wanted to enjoy the last days of dollar slightly lower, while investors still had some hope of getting rid of the gang that was installed in power. I would love to be wrong in predicting, but as you see, she materialized.
Even with the dollar at new levels, a Perfume Emporium still has much lower prices than any national store and that much of the international stores. And the trend is that this advantage is growing, once the PT government will further increase the value of various taxes 2015, including cosmetics tax, what will endear perfumes and cosmetics sold in Brazil. After all, someone has to pay the bill for the profligacy and rampant corruption, and as is always the taxpayer.
The freight is still only $ 11,00, lower than that of many stores in Brazil, which also suffer from high transport costs, thanks also to the many fuel taxes (and now worsen Dilma will even bring back CIDE), lack of investment in rail transport, high insurance due to theft charge, etc.
In my second purchase in Perfume Emporium I mentioned that the package arrived with tracking code, but I was only knowing him after the package arrived. Now this problem has been remedied and the Perfume Emporium informs the tracking code package FreiPost, where the package can be tracked. And from the FreiPost is possible to obtain the Fiji mail tracking code, used by FreiPost to send the packages to Brazil. With Fiji mail code you can track the package by Post Office website, add in Muambator, etc.
My purchase was again a Armani de Giorgio Armani EDT de 100ml, the same as the first and second purchase. Came the new version again, with silver base and silver detail on the cover. Moreover, I did not notice difference between the new version and the last specimens I acquired the old version. Indeed, I'm very suspicious that the change in fragrance components occurred when changed some details on the package a few years ago: thinner straw, spray worst quality, etc, as already commented here on the Blog Skooter in article 2012. I even unjustly suspected of other good shops like FragranceNet.com and StrawberryNET.com when I received these different copies. I thought they could be fake, but after buying so exemplary in Duty Free Dufry I ended up concluding that changed the packaging and components of the same fragrance. My guess is that the manufacturer tried to make these changes go unnoticed, but after consumers began to notice the difference decided to make more radical changes to the packaging and announced the change in components, which in fact it had already occurred before. It's the old strategy of marketing sector come to save that which was actually a cut costs on behalf of the original formula components 1984 have become scarcer and more expensive over the years.
With discount coupon PD1915, my purchase went for $ 67,94 including freight, as can be seen in the following summary:
