    Default About Buying Ambre Narguile

    So I want to purchase the fragrance knowing that the Hermes website sells it. $240 is expensive but I'd go for it....but when you go to check out they slap you with at least $20 shipping (ground shipping mind you) and them $20 tax on top...what the f...thats $280.
    Does anyone know another place to purchase this? Honestly that's ridiculous.

    Bro, just buy the gift set. It comes with four 15ml travel atomizers of your choice. They look just like the Hermessence bottles but tiny. It's like $145 or so. You can get 4x 15ml Amber Narguilles or some of the other frags if you want. Still have to pay shipping though...

    If you like it I guess you're going to fork over that large amount. No way around it if that's all you want.

    I have looked everywhere else for lower prices on it and haven't found it yet. It's really that good though. Strong and lasts a good 12 hours on me

    Its the shipping that bugs me though, never seen seen such high prices for shipping. I will have to inspect and see if Hermes actually would carry these in store and try to buy from the store instead of online.

    You are only going to be able to purchase from a Hermes store.

    They do have one in Atlanta:

    273 Buckhead Avenue,
    Atlanta GA 30305

    You beat me to it I was about to tell him that. It's within the Buckhead brand library and Faldo Irish pub vicinity.

    I love Ambre Narguile, but the price is just too high for me and I never find it at discounters. It's one of the only fragrances I haven't bought specifically because of the price.

    Hope you find a cheaper bottle than at Hermes, but it seems unlikely. Good luck!

    I am a little surprised they don't have free shipping for orders > $X. Most places do. Well, if you are thinking of paying $240 for a bottle, don't let $20 stop you - heck, with gas prices what they are, you will almost spend that driving up to the mall. And the time savings makes up for it too.

    eBay is where I purchased my 15ml for like $45 free shipping...I sprayed once ended up not liking it and selling it for around $38. It came in a nice bottle, nice Hermes canvas sack and everything. I would think you can find some deals like the person that purchased my bottle. Otherwise, you may need to take a trip to the store.

    ------

    ALSO: You may want to try and give them a call. Let the rep know you're frustrated with the shipping charges. Often times, they will discount of waive the shipping.

    Bought my set of 4 15ml bottles at the store. Seemed a better bargain than one large bottle for $240.

    Absolutely. I got the same thing and the 15ml bottles came in nice canvas baggies like rynegne said, and a nice Hermes box. Best deal you can get on the Hermessence line. I have 2 of the Ambre Narguiles in 15ml.

    Call your local store and ask for all the samples you want. Really.
    I purchased Ambre Narguile from the King of Prussia store which is only
    20 miles from my house, but the traffic between here and there is ALWAYS
    a hassle.
    Got charged the outrageous shipping (signature required) but also received
    samples of ALL the Hermessences and samples of the parfum Terre d'Hermes.
    Large samples, just make sure you ask for each one by name. HTH
    I smell marshmallows!

    The only way you are able to get the full bottle without shipping costs is to get your self to a Hermes boutique. I feel kind of lucky, the Hermes store here in Sweden is only 10 minutes away from me!
