    Default Avoid Shipment from Germany, Specially First in Fragrance www.ausliebezumduft.de

    Hi,
    Just wanted to share my experience with fellow Basenotes members.
    I ordered fragrance in excess of 300 USD from www.ausliebezumduft.de, Package was shipped on May 13, I am still chasing DHL and www.ausliebezumduft.de about the status of the package.
    ausliebezumduft keeps on telling me that it will arrive or there is a postal strike in Germany , So they have no clue, DHL is giving me the same answer and saying that it might be stuck in Customs, Result is an agonizing endless wait.
    Did anyone of you guys experience this?

    My experiences with FiF have usually been about 2 to 3 weeks (shipped to the East coast) and I ordered from them many times.

    For Essenza Nobile, it's about a month.

    Edit - Hopefully there might be some info here that might be useful.

    This ought to be in the correct forum, not here.

    Please look at my thread in the Germany section, as i also had problems with FIF at around the same time. They were moving premises.

    Customs may be the real culprit. The German DHL Paket isn't the fastest deliverer either. The French outlets are your best bet for quicker delivery for special occasions like birthdays, etc. Especially,when trying to play the exchange rates. NYC customs are very slow if you get a break and it moves through Miami you will make good time. But overall the cost savings with both German outlets are very enticing.

    There is a postal strike going on for many days now in Germany.
    I also had to wait pretty long for inland DHL deliveries.
    About DHL now, permit me to disagree with you about the speed of delivery, you can barely find another company that works as quick as DHL.
    French outlets have been in my own experience much slower than DHL.

    I've ordered from them a few times, took them a week to prepare the package, but once it was in DHL's hands the package was smooth sailing and got me (Canada) in a week and half.

    Thanks for the heads up on the ongoing German postal strike! No more orders from me until that matter is resolved!

    Just my take, but FIF is the best retailer that I have ever dealt with.

    I ordered from them (first time) yesterday night around 10:30, got an email this morning at 6 am saying the order was processed and already shipped.
    Will see how long it takes and report back.

    I'll give Deutsche Post a week to clear their backlog and a week to let the Euro slide further before I resume ordering.

    Good news received Carnel Flower within 13 days from Essenza Nobile. Fastest ever for me from a German outlet. I did order on a Sunday night per Hednic's instructions. It seemed to speed things up. The main fact is the goods are flowing with a exceptional exchange rate. I saved big bucks on the 100ml Malle.

    Glad to hear that things are resuming to normal with delivery, and a weak Euro is an added bonus for sure.

    Have finally resumed purchases from FIF hoping I have given them enough time after the resolution of the mail strike and their company move to smoothly receive packages from them once again. I have never had a problem with them and hope it continues that way. Fingers crossed.
