    Question Help me! I want to buy samples!

    Hello fellows basenoters!

    I live in BRAZIL and I want to buy samples of DESIGNER fragrances, mostly, but this has proven to be a bit harder than I thought.

    I can't buy from eBay because I don't have and can't have a PayPal account, at the moment.

    Also, I tried ordering from LuckyScents but, if I'm not mistaken, they won't accept a credit card that's not from US. (And they don't take international orders that consist of samples only, which sucks :/)

    So what are my options to get samples? I have an international credit card, if that helps.
    Any help would be really appreciated

    I tried some website that a fellow basenoter recommended to me, and they charged 55 dollars to ship 5 1ml samples to Brazil. It's impossible.

    I must try Amouage Gold and Jubilation as soon as possible, but I simply don't know how.

    You are wrong. Surrender to Chance charged me 60 dollars to ship a bunch of samples to Brazil. Here is their message to me (I chose seven samples of 1ml):

    Ship by USPS International Priority Mail $59.95

    There is no more cheap shipments from USA to foreign countries.
    For me to ship anything, the minimum charge to Brazil is about $10.

    I get a lot of international sample purchases, and I am currently not charging for shipping, so I don't think that I'm making any money selling international samples... I certainly understand charging for shipping, the cost is quite high.
