    Is Amazon.com safe to buy from?

    Just found a ridiculously cheap price for Jaipur Homme EDP, and I'm wondering about other people's experiences in buying from Amazon.com. Never bought anything from it myself.

    If you are buying directly from Amazon, then absolutely.

    It's from a seller on Amazon called "Beauty Nails".

    I've read all the threads about EDT vs EDP, and even though I tried the EDP once on the card (not on the skin) I can't remember detecting much difference.


    But I'm reading that the EDP has better projection/sillage etc.

    I have to admit that I love the EDT, it's just beautiful.

    Bugger. Can't ship to Australia.

    Grrrrr, that annoys me!

    Is ebay any good?

    Useless question, I suppose, because it all depends on the seller on there.

    Got the Jaipur EDT on my wrists, and just can't stop sniffing it.

    Such a beautiful beautiful fragrance.

    Have you tried some Australia perfume sites? Feelingsexy.com.au have some and Strawberrynet.com usually have a good range of designer frangrances. I bought from both these sites and both have been great.

    Tried the Aussie sites, but they were selling Jaipur EDP at $130.

    So I figured, "oh stuff it, I'll just get it of where I usually buy my online stuff: Perfume Emporium".


    I've always had really good experiences with them.

    Feelingsexy.com.au has the 100ml parfum gift set for $69.95. From memory they ship from Melbourne. I did notice much of the other items in this line was out of stock but this still was still available.

    I only use Amazon for samples or if the bottle is at a standard discounted rate you can find anywhere. I prefer to use more reputable sources.

    These ^ ^ ^ ^ Personally, I've never had bad experience purchasing fragrances directly from Amazon. (Description should say:Ships from and sold by Amazon.com)

    Ah crap! Oh well, I've already purchased it from Perfume Emporium. Too late now.

    I've tended to eschew the Aussie sites because their prices have generally been quite high.

    Not to worry, you have a wonderful scent and new site to get your back up bottles 😉
