Editions de Parfums (Frederic Malle) wrote and told me they would not send samples as I live in london where there is one outlet; les senteurs. This makes no sense as les senteurs ship worldwide, so why does it make any difference where I live? They could just as well send samples to Australia. Though I live in london, it is very difficult for me to get to the shop.
Also les senteurs offer a very poor service in my experience. They have charged me twice for an order of £150 then failed to appologise. They have also "lost" one sample order I made after charging me and got two others wrong. Thats four errors out of four orders, so I do not want to use them.
So malle has lost a customer.
