    Default Confused by Amazon price on Burberry

    On AMazon the burberry classic for men is listed ar around $33 for 3.3 ounce, whereas the same 3.3 ounce at sephor ais for $68 why?

    The one sold by amaozn is actually sold by fragracenet, so it this a knock off?

    It's just heavily discounted. Nothing to worry about.

    I just don't want to pay $36 and get a fake, I won't even know if its a fake.

    It's simply wholesale discounting - move larger volumes slightly above cost vs. the retail approach of higher retail pricing for higher margins while possibly sacrificing some volume. Brick & mortars generally have much higher overhead as well, so they need to sell at regular retail prices. Plus, you also get that peace of mind and immediate product-in-hand satisfaction when purchasing at a retail location. For many people, that's worth the extra money. There's always certain risks that are higher by ordering online, but from my experiences and many other BN'ers, Amazon direct and Fragrancenet are legit and people rarely have major issues with them. Plus, Amazon's customer service is pretty good in my experience and you can return items and their cost if there's an issue with it that wasn't your fault.

    Its legit. Go to www.fragrancenet.com and you should almost always be able to get 20% off right off the bat. Here is the link for the Burberry for men.

    http://www.fragrancenet.com/burberry...mf/en_US/05747

    The tester is $33 plus you get the 20% off but you have to pay shipping and that sometimes is the 20% off discount. So its pretty much "free" shipping. I have only had one problem with fragrancenet but it wasn't their fault. I got a Givenchy Play Intense bottle and it had little to no smell other than alcohol. Other then that they are legit and 9 times out of 0 they are better then any Sephora. I use to shop at Sephora since they had a great return policy, but their prices are inflated.

    Thank you all for the info.

    As I am learning more I have cme to understand perfumes more and what my expectation should be, I have realized that I have a dry skin so perfumes wont last as long as it would wih an oily skin.

    Currently I am using Citaphil body moisuturizer, should I chnag eit to a fragranceee mousturizer, although citiphil has arely any smell.

    Also, where can I buy good quality but cheap atmozers.

    Any links would be great.
