    Default Shipping fragrance from Italy to USA? Anyone?

    Hey guys,
    I was wondering if anyone has any experience with shipping fragrance from Italy to the USA? A family member in south Italy wants to send me a present (fragrance) and I am not sure how they should do it.. Any experiences?
    Thanks..

    I have shipped only three packages of fragrances over the last decade from Italy. I used DHL Express in each case - once from Milano, once from Sorrento and once from Firenze. All arrived in 3-4 days door to door to the East Coast with customs clearance. That's the only experience I have.

    Yep DHL is the way to go, even the firm I work at receives all kinds of packages and all different weights from all over Italia and it's always DHL.

    Absolutely. My packages were also heavy. Not cheap but the easiest and safest way. Make sure you use DHL Express International and not just DHL package service.

    Good luck with that, last couple of times I tried to use DHL/UPS to ship fragrances to US/Canada I received the packet back to my door. A cheaper and still fairly safe option is "Posta Raccomandata" by Italian Posts (that works, although it takes longer).
    My current top five:

    Etro - Vetiver
    Slumberhouse - Ore
    Parfum d'Empire - Cuir Ottoman
    Hermès - Equipage (vtg)
    Geo F Trumper - Curzon
