    Default First in Fragrance - US Shipping

    May be placing my first order with them pretty soon.

    Just wanted to get an idea from US Basenoters, generally speaking, how long from order placement did it take to receive your order.

    First time it took 20 days or so, 2nd time it was maybe a little under 2 weeks, 3rd time..well I placed it a week ago so who knows.

    It really just depends on how long US wants to let it sit in customs. DHL usually gets it here in a few days.

    Expect 12-14 days usually for me.

    Thanks for the responses. I kind of figured about two weeks depending on how soon it clears through customs.

    Just curious about something, not sure if you guys check your tracking numbers as often as I do, but I'm visiting the US for a couple of months, and decided to order two bottles from FIF. In Japan FIF orders arrived quickly before, and the tracking notices kept me pretty updated along the way, but this time, having it shipped to the US, the tracking has told me that the package is "waiting to be shipped" for the last 10-11 days or so.

    Is this pretty common?

    I called DHL Germany and they claimed it left Germany 11 days ago. I called the USPS and they said they don't have it in customs or anything, and their tracking shows the same as mine, that it's still in Germany waiting to be shipped.

    Just curious if anyone else has experienced this before, or if this is normal?

    The order was shipped on the 28th, so I'm not thinking it's lost or something, but waiting 11 days to leave after being cleared seems a bit... long?

    Welcome to USPS. It is probably somewhere in the system in the US and not updated. They are terrible with overseas shipments and updating tracking information. The last 4 orders I placed with companies in Europe, the same happened to me. It will probably update once it hits the post office that will be delivering your package, and you'll get it that day or the next.

    Keep in mind, it is the Postal Services busiest time of year, so it may be a little slower than normal.

    Don't count on USPS tracking numbers as anything more than reassurance that your package still exists. Last time I had my package before the status changed on the tracking page. If it's in the US that's a good sign, it'll only be a week or so...hopefully

    Thanks for the info guys. It's a bit more reassuring now.
