    There is no problems lpp. Just got a package from Omonde Jayne for $27. Got my package in 3 days. Some businesses take care of their overseas clients some choose not to do so.

    People here should have read enough to know about the problems of international shipping in UK/US - and the number of destroyed falsely described goods, but agree that websites should have correct info. so that customers are not inconvenienced.

    Thank you for your understanding of the situation.

    I am sure you can appreciate that for legal reasons we cannot deliberate place false information on our packaging as to try to avoid such charges. It would not be good practice.

    As for the scent itself, you can read more about Ex Idolo and purchase the fragrance here:

    Shipping costs do not increase by the number of perfumes you order. So it is more worthwhile to order a number of fragrances at the same time to spread the shipping costs.

    Royal Mail are currently reviewing their stance on this but until we hear something new, we have to continue to pass on the costs that we incur.

    We know it is not ideal but we would prefer to still give the customer the option to proceed if they so wish.
    Why don't you just ship as cosmetic sample like all the other companie's do? I buy many perfumes from other UK comanies, and it doesn't seem to be a problem.

    Ya gotta love it. Roullier White is asking $140.00 for a bottle. I wanted one until I found out shipping to the U.S. is $188.00. Shipping is $48.00 more than the bottle cost. The real story is I actually bought a bottle and paid over $50 shipping until I got a reply from Roullier White that their website was programed with the wrong shipping rate, and sent me a refund informing of the new insane rate. Which actually took 4 days to be deposited into my paypal account because paypal put a hold on it.

    When a mistake is made in my business. We eat the mistake, and then fix it for the next customer. It shouldn't be my problem their website isn't up to date . I agreed on the terms, and they should have been honored.

    Can't help feeling a launch date after summer would be better. Looks like a cool weather scent.

    Outline, you DO make a strong point! And I'm rather inclined to agree. But this bottle looks absolutely tempting! When I first glanced it on the front page of Basenotes, I immediately thought VINTAGE, due to the color of the perfume and the bottle. And also, I love the Heliotrope, like what is in old L'Heure Bleue forumulas before they changed them. Wonder if the Heliotropin in this is anything like that.
