    Default The Different Company - UK sales?

    Looking at some older posts, it looks like they were once selling in the UK. Now, even the official web site doesn't deliver to the UK. I know that I can get it from First in Fragrance and there's an Austrian company selling it on Amazon as well.

    But where can I get a sample of say Sel de Vetiver, here in the UK? If I want to buy it blind, I know where to go, but otherwise I'd be stumped!

    Any ideas?

    There don't appear to be any stockists here at the moment - maybe Ebay or frags wanted here?

    Doesn't stock much, and not the one you want, but

    Might be worth approaching to see if they can get hold of others, maybe.

    (I've never bought from them so have no idea whether they're any good or not.)

    Thanks for the link uncle creepy shame they don't have UK representation as I'd really like to try some of their scents out. I'm a big Ellena fan!

    Bumping this thread (seen as I started it).

    It seems that The Different Company now delivers to the UK from its site; delivery is around 17 EUR to the UK. I had originally ordered some samples from First in Fragrance, but they no longer seem to have Roise Poivree listed.

    Why can't they get their fragrances back into the stores?

    They may well have ! - I could have sworn I saw the line in stock a couple of weeks back and their website appears to confirm it.

    Well I managed to try the Rose Poivre and have to say I am not impressed. It seems weaker than I remember it. Much weaker. To the point that even on paper it did not last. Oh well waiting for a sample and we shall see...

    Not necesarily related to TDC, but the sales staff at Harvey Nichs (and Selfridges mind you) are the least helpful that I have ever met... They haven't a clue about perfumes or notes in perfumes.

    If I were ordering a TDC scent, I'd go to their European online website or try Essenza Nobile in Germany who do free UK delivery for orders over €150.
