    Are the Creed products from skins.nl original? I want to buy some creed and I have seen that the price is good. Comparing to essenza-nobile.de the price on skins.nl is 10% lower..

    So.. are the creed products from skins.nl original? Did anyone buy?
    thx,

    Skins is highly reliable. They have boutiques in several major warehouse chains.

    They appear competitive on the ones that I looked at.

    They seem to be very competive with their Frederic Malle's & Maison Francis Kurkdjian's also. I haven't shopped here yet but I intend too.

    Does this company ship to the US with no issues?

    From what I understand they ship free for over 250 euros. They are a quality outfit and they have a 21 per cent VAT. I noticed competitive prices and a 2 per cent discount from the norm(French and German online stores). The drawback could be their sample offerings but I'm not quite sure. I think LPP may have some history with them. Perhaps she could chime in and enlighten us. I do like to navigate on their website it looks very user friendly with a English translation option. I will know more first hand myself next month all being well.

    I will look into this further. What's most important to me are their offerings and what I can't get readily in the US. If it's on par with FIF or Jovoy then I can seriously see myself making purchases there. Thanks for the info.

    I hope it's another avenue we can explore further with great success. It doesn't hurt to have some options to play with if they are actually on par with Premier, EN, FIF, etc.

    The sampling service they have is good but quite strange. They offer 5 samples for 15 euros, once you receive them, you would also get a 15 euro voucher. Which they interpret that you can use towards purchasing a bottle hence you get the samples for free.

    However, I want to buy a bottle from them now, and i want to get the free 5 samples. I guess I can't do that. In order to get these free samples i have to go through the samples first even though i know what I am going to buy.

    I could have placed an order by now, it is just wasting my time. I will try and contact them via email.

    Please chime in if you have experience with them regarding free samples.

    I bought a bottle of Diptyque Vetyverio for my brother as a present. I personally liked it. The sales lady gave me a free sample(1,5ml) for my brother to try first. And i got a free sample of byredo oud immortel and accord oud. My brother did not fancy the scent (too sweet). So i returned the Diptyque and in stead bought a bottle of byredo oud immortel for myself and gave my brother another gift. And i got two more free samples (byredo seven veils and bullion). I bought it at their store in Rotterdam not Amsterdam though.

    I also bought a sample box online with the voucher. Be aware that the voucher is valid for three months, it does not say that online when you buy the sample box.
