That will save you another 11-12%. If you are looking for any designer stuff, duty free at CDG is probably your best bet. They also have amazing prices on Lutens export sprays - 72/82 €.
When I pay I need to ask for tax refund form, right?
By the way, I just compared Beauty Brands at Printemps & Galleries Lafayette.
I am going to have heart attack just by reading the brands at Printemps, there are a myriad of niche house available there.- - - Updated - - -
I just convinced my family to go to Printemps instead.
They make been there before so they know Printemps is really better.
A few years ago, other family members had wonderful vacation in Europe including Paris, but they left me alone in the middle of our political uprising to take care of our house, so I am going to be angry if they do not let me go to wherever I want this time.
