    Default newbie - is there advice here re purchasing via internet etc

    Hi Im new and delighted with the site. Is there any advice here about purchasing via the internet? Ive seen testers offered in plain packaging and so on. Is this OK? Like everyone I want to find good prices but I dont want fakes or other rip-offs (or should that be rips-off?!!)

    Welcome annem!

    I really like to use scentiments.com. I don't know if they ship to Spain but you can always check it out anyway.

    Testers are wonderful because they are much less expensive. They are the exact same, in terms of the fragrance. The box is plain and some come with no cap. That doesn't matter because you will still smell the same as you would if you bought the fancy box. Paying less is always a great experience!!

    Rip-offs are the worst. I've never been caught in one yet but I'm still young. Just be careful. Ask around for advice on a site that you are not sure of. There is also a shopping guide in the discussion board with a list of sites. There are reviews on them if you want to check that out.

    Welcome, again!

    Testers are fine. They're even better when they come with a cap - half do and half don't. It's a nuisance carrying a bottle around on travel without a cap.

    Unfortunately, getting all the great deals available in the USA is only of any use if you live there.

    Many of us non-USA types regularly check the monthly specials at www.strawberrynet.com as their prices can be good, and they have excellent service.

    I'm a fan of testers. I haven't been disappointed yet. I don't mind the fact that half arrive capless as I tend to decant anything I wear on a regular basis.
