A Perfume Emporium is another excellent option to purchase perfumes and cosmetics direct US. Moreover, after that second purchase is my new favorite. Prices are good, the freight is cheap, there are coupons and scoring system which can be exchanged for products in the store.
My purchase was my favorite perfume, the Armani de Giorgio Armani EDT de 100ml, the same as the first purchase. This time already received the new version, with silver base and silver detail on the cover. This perfume was created in 1984. Today, 30 years after, apparently some ingredients have become rare and, therefore, decided to launch a new version with current ingredients. The evaluations of experts vary, some preferred the old version, others prefer the new. What's left of the old stock in stores will end soon, then there seems to be little choice. Other changes have occurred without much fanfare over these 30 years, probably to cut costs and bring the price of US $ 200,00 from 1984 for about $ 60,00 current. This is something that tends to happen with all the perfumes.
In Perfume Emporium You can choose the currency. I chose real, but it's only reference, because the charge on the card turned out to be in dollars. So in future purchases will use the same dollar. The value of international shipping is US $ 11,00 for purchases of up to US $ 110,00 and 10% of the purchase price, for orders over US $ 110,00. It is quite reasonable, whereas in Brazil any Sedex or even national PAC ends up costing more than that.
In my case was so:
Informações de cartão de crédito:
Taxa De Manuseio: R$4.32
Cupom de Desconto: R$(21.78)
Você tem os seguintes produtos em seu pedido:
Núm. do Produto: 0453
DESCRIÇÃO: Armani 100 ml EDT Spray (M)
PREÇO UNIT.: R$145.19
I thought £ 145,19, including freight, a very reasonable value, because in Brazil, on a trusted store like Sephora the same perfume is costing £ 599,00, in other words, gives to buy 4 them in Perfume Emporium the same value.
Before buying the Perfume Emporium is good to sign up Rewards Program, thus generates each purchase points which can then be redeemed for products. Enough follow the link and fill your data. This purchase also received a coupon 10% next to use na. The coupon is FLYER10. I do not know if it works with anyone, but not hurt to try. If not work, use o SELL600, giving US $ 6,00 off.
Shipping is done by the Fiji mail, what should be a store strategy to circumvent the high prices of the USPS in USA. Although informed that there is no trace, in fact the package came registered. But I just went to see the code when it arrived, then these trace information below I've only seen after the parcel arrival:
|15/07/2014 18:15||CSD [Removed]||Delivery Effected|
|15/07/2014 09:53||[Removed]||Out for delivery to the recipient|
|23/06/2014 15:43||CTCI SAO PAULO / GMIMP – SAO PAULO / SP||Routed|
|In transit to SITC PARANA – CURITIBA/PR|
|23/06/2014 15:19||UNIT international traffic SAO PAULO – SAO PAULO / SP||Awarded|
|Received / Brazil|
From what you see in the trace, Fiji packages arrive in São Paulo and then are forwarded to Curitiba to pass by the IRS, then return to be delivered. The tours that packets do for Brazil, inefficiency of Posts, and the length of the IRS are the main reasons for delays in international packages. Few countries in the world hinder both international shopping and Brazil, is one of the most time consuming and certainly the most collects taxes. But as can be seen by tracking, the package was not dilmado by the IRS. I was immensely happy when the packet arrived without dilmada for she was counting on her to.
Here is the summary table:
|Product Name:||Armani by Giorgio Armani 3.4 oz EDT Spray|
