    Dear Remik,

    I'm completely new to the forum, but would be happy to provide crossreferences with my ebay username, which has a few dozen feedback.

    I'd love to have 50ml of the Creed Spice and Wood split (bottle 5?).

    Warmest,

    Ben

    Hi Remik, any update on the Ambre Précieux? It has been marked as being in US customs for quite some time now. Hopefully with the holiday period being over, any US customs backlog will be cleared. Thanks for all the work you've put in on these splits.

    Update on Ambre Précieux Ultime and Fortis splits:

    At the time the splits were run, Ambre Précieux Ultime was not available in the US, I ordered it from First in Fragrance (Germany) as they were one of the few places around the world that received the initial shipment (remember, only 1000 bottles were made). The first two bottles arrived without problems and were decanted and shipped to split participants. The Fortis split closed at around the same time as Ambre Précieux bottles #3 & #4 split, and coincidentally - everyone in the US was out of stock on it at that time, so when I ordered more bottles of Ambre Précieux Ultime, I also ordered Fortis from the same place, First in Fragrance. The package has been shipped in October, and it has cleared US Customs on Oct.28, according to the tracking info (which I shared with split participants so that everyone could track the package delivery). Unfortunately it appears that's where the problem is - the package "cleared US Customs" - but has not been released to USPS for final delivery. According to USPS, the package is somewhere at the San Francisco US Customs office. Both myself and First in Fragrance opened an inquiry as to the whereabouts of this package, which took a few days to get paperwork mailed to me to be signed, then returned back to USPS, to start the inquiry. Now USPS has eight weeks to locate the package and have it delivered. First in Fragrance will not issue refund for the package before the 8-week time period, as the investigation is under way, and they were informed that when USPS finds the package, they will forward it to the recipient (me) and not to FiF. FiF and myself were both informed that if USPS cannot locate the package within 8 weeks, however, that's when they will officially "close the case" and somehow work out the details with FiF, I'm assuming by issuing whatever refund they might be owed for losing the package (assuming they did lose it), and at that time FiF may be willing to extend a refund to me, and in return I may extend a refund to you - OR purchase these bottles domestically, now that they are available here (I haven't checked the availability recently, but I have seen Ambre Précieux Ultime offered by Lucky Scent in December, and I believe Barneys has Fortis in stock now, too).

    It's a lengthy and annoying process, and I apologize to everyone involved in these two splits. I wish there was an easier solution, alas, FiF won't budge until the case is closed, and either the package is located and delivered, or USPS agrees they have lost the package. And USPS has eight weeks to figure this out. Until then, there's not much more I can do, just sit and wait... and wait... and wait...

    This is the first time I've had any international package held this long by US Customs (or possibly "lost"), so there is no precedence to this, and I don't know if there is hope in USPS locating the package at this point. All I can say is I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and am hoping for a quick resolution.

    Typically customs will be semi-efficient in communicating if the contents were somehow not above-board entirely, because they can charge tax/fine/etc. the recipient if they want the package. In this case, since it was cleared by customs, and no flags were put on the package, then I would say it's likely that the package has been lost or stolen by an employee.

    That's unfortunate, but you will probably have to wait 8 weeks to find out you get a refund.

    Thanks very much for the update, Remik.

    I would expect that the US Customs department has some kind of reconciliation process, whereby a package missing would end up accountable to someone (thus, an incentive not to lose a package). Given how several packages having the same kind of contents to be received by remik passed through customs to USPS without incident, I would take it as a low risk that someone would decide that another one of these packages was worth taking. Let's hope that it's just a matter of someone having overlooked the status and the package is just sitting there, waiting to be sent on its way.

    If US customs has any similarity to USPS in terms of package handling, it is possible that the package was accidentally put in the wrong package queue. This has happened to me on a couple of occasions with my local USPS. In one case, the package was waiting to be picked up but I did not receive a notice. On-line tracking showed it as "delivery status not updated" after a false "out for delivery". On-line inquiries didn't help (USPS has a case management system). I had to go to a specific USPS branch and the person who picked it up for me from the back took a good 10 minutes to locate it. The person looked a bit annoyed, shaking their head, and put a filled out delivery notice slip onto a ticket pile of some kind. When I inquired as to what had happened, I couldn't get a straight answer (didn't want to push it, as I did get my package). Looked like they'd had some issues with notices being sent out properly.

    I don't mind that - if they simply let me know there's duty or taxes on the package, that's one thing, I'd gladly pay it, it's not the end of the world... But in this case - nothing. The package has "cleared the Customs" but that's the last update they have.

    When customs seized packages of bourbon and beer, they sent letters nearly immediately letting us know we needed to pay excise and alcohol import taxes, and then pay fines on-top of that in order to get our contents. It's thankfully still cheaper to eat the fines + taxes than it is to get an importers license, for whatever reason, but I really don't know how customs deals with fragrances.

    Hold on to your chairs, I may have an answer and a resolution to this issue!! Just waiting for confirmation from FiF on their last email. I'm hoping to see the actual response within the next 2-3 days (fingers crossed), and then I will contact the affected split participants accordingly.

    Hi Milla,

    Yes, I do ship internationally, and have shipped many packages to Europe without any problems. Please PM me your mailing address, or at least the country you are in, and I'll be happy to look up the shipping rates. For RD Neroli Extrait - yes, 30ml share of the split would give you the bottle and box. And Thank You for your kind words!! :-)

    Thank you for letting us in on the update! The 8 week process will be long and arduious--but it's a necessary evil for us all to have a resolution.

    Since then, I've seen it being sold in the city...plus I'm sure you're sick of my PMs about it. Hah.

    Now, any chance of another run at Bogue Maai? I'd take 15ml out of the 30ml bottle and to get the bottle.

    ^^^ We should have the final response in the next 2-3 days, I'm hoping. Based on the email exchange with FiF, I think we are on the right track to resolve the issue and move on. I don't want to say more online as this is still being worked on, and even though it's been a sloooooooow process (I don't fault FiF for US Customs screwup), I believe we will have a happy resolution very very soon.

    MAAI - I'll PM you.
