Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today, I present a new store to shop for perfumes and cosmetics abroad, with very cheap prices: a FragranceX.com. This loja, U.S. based com us, sends with free shipping for Brazil, sufficing use or cupom “BRAZIL” na dating when buying. Payment can be made with major credit cards flags (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, etc.) and also with PayPal, with all its practicality and safety.
Prices FragranceX.com are very good, even smaller than the Duty Free Dufry, free shop at the airport of Guarulhos (among others), where products are sold without the numerous Brazilian taxes and, therefore, much cheaper than in stores in Brazil. Compared to the prices of online stores, a FragranceX.com takes further advantage. For example, at Armani EDT 100ml now costs £ absurd 431,00 Submarine no. In FragranceX.com the same perfume, Armani Cologne by Giorgio Armani, 3.4 oz Eau De Toilette Spray for Men, today costs just $67,51 USD (U.S. dollars two), equivalent to approximately U.S. $ 109,00 Quote for today, in other words, with the price of just one in Submarino, gives almost four lead to the FragranceX.com. All though the Submarino stores is not cheaper to buy perfumes and cosmetics, but even doing a Search by Armani EDT 100ml in Bondfaro, Today we can see that the prices range from $ 225,15 a R$ 455,90, in other words, even buying the cheapest shop will still be paying more than double the price of the same perfume FragranceX.com.
So prices FragranceX.com are unbeatable, but is that the store is reliable? Does the perfumes are original? Before writing this article I decided to make a purchase in order to answer these two questions. My purchase was the, já cited, Armani Cologne by Giorgio Armani, 3.4 oz Eau De Toilette Spray for Men. Just to leave no doubt, 3,4 oz (oz) equivalem to 100 mililítros (ml). I used the coupon “BRAZIL” to get the free shipping.
The purchase was made in 12/04/2011 and sent by the next day “Global Mail Priority”, that does not offer a tracking number. Whoever matter of having a tracking number should not use the coupon “BRAZIL” and will have to choose one of the paid freight. The box arrived in 26/05/2011 and was not taxed. Peel label, I see it was posted in Germany, which is probably a strategy to save the store and be able to offer better prices. As the perfume is manufactured in France, it is easier to post it directly from Europe to the client in Brazil, instead of taking it to the U.S. and then resubmit it to another country. Thus should save on taxes and also take advantage of lower prices offered by mail Europe when compared to the high prices charged by the USPS in the United States.
The declared value was $67,51, without specifying currency, What is the real value of the product in USD (U.S. dollars two). A description of the content comes as “BEAUTY SUPPLIES” and the content was noted as being present (“Gift”). The sender has filled in as “FRG Shipping”, with an address of Hauppauge, New York, USA. Remember that sending as this does not guarantee that the package will not be taxed, because in reality it is a buy. Furthermore, the sender is not an individual and the value of the product is higher than $50,00 USD. In other words, only here now missing 3 the requirements for exemption in accordance with the law. But, as the IRS receives more packets than can monitor and assess, just doing random checks. Thus, the chances of not having the package are taxed relatively good. And that's what happened with my package, which was not taxed.
Inside the box, In addition the product is a paper describing items, but no values indicate, and a discount coupon $5 USD for the next purchase. The perfume came in the original cardboard box, no original plastic sealed, and wrapped in bubble wrap. Both the container as the container passed in my visual inspection, presenting all the characteristics of original, what is already a good sign, because there are fakes that fail to copy small details of the bottle, that does not go unnoticed in a rigorous visual inspection, especially when we have an authentic copy to compare. No case, the comparison was made with a copy that I purchased in person at a store in a mall in Barcelona, Spain, acredito que ser genuíno, therefore already know the fragrance. We also compared the bottle of copy received from FragranceX.com with some empty bottles of copies purchased in stores reliable (Perfumes Summers and Duty Free Duffry), and they are all identical.
The next test is the fragrance, the choice of Armani Cologne by Giorgio Armani, 3.4 oz Eau De Toilette Spray for Men I was by now familiar with this fragrance and also have the authentic copy for comparison. A FragranceX.com also passed this test, The fragrance is the same as the exemplary compared, which is also a good sign, because some counterfeits are very distinctive fragrance of original.
Finally, The last test is the fixation. For both, Today around 16 hours I sprayed a little Armani Cologne by Giorgio Armani, 3.4 oz Eau De Toilette Spray for Men I have received gives FragranceX.com in one arm, and sprayed a bit of copy for comparison in other. At the time of writing these lines (23:00h), 7 hours, both still very noticeable and with the same fragrance.
Therefore, I can conclude that this is a genuine copy of Armani Cologne by Giorgio Armani, 3.4 oz Eau De Toilette Spray for Men or, no minimum, is a very good forgery, because I could not notice any difference. A fake I got from another store, This same perfume, fragrance was somewhat different from the original, In addition the flask with minor differences, I did identify it as non-genuine effortless. This only increases my confidence that I received this copy of FragranceX.comis really authentic.
