    Default Shipping perfumes to Greece?

    Has anyone from Can/USA shipped perfumes to Greece. How was the experience? and I wonder if it is as risky as shipping to the UK.

    I have shipped samples from the US to Greece (declaring them face creams or the like) and so far have had no problem. I have never shipped bottles, though.

    Same here. I've sent samples/bottles to Greece without issues.
    But the last time was about a year ago.

    for swap/sale:

    I thought the problem was shipping out of the UK, not into it?

    I believe so, but in order to ship *in* to the UK, I thought I read that you had to be a registered business or something like that.

    Clearly, a registered business shipping 150ml of perfume is going to do it much safer than a private individual shipping the same...

    It may also be easier for registered businesses within the E.U. to ship safely & economically into the U.K.
    Shipping out safely needs the use of a Hazmat carrier these days.

    Ah - that's been worrying me. I've been wanting to order some decants from Surrender to Chance but this whole shipping thing has put me off. If it's from an actual business, it should be OK, then?

    (Sorry for the derail, rum )

    From the USA is possibly expensive these days.

    l have received orders from STC in the recent past with no problems at all.
