    Doesn't seem to work. I tried the checkout process all the way to charging the card and it did not give me the discount on the discovery set

    Considering that the post with the link is almost two years old, not surprising that it doesn't work.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Maybe the Flash series isn't available for the promo because it's not working for me, even though the terms just state that all you need to do is add a FB with the discovery set and then the discount will be taken out of S&H.

    Thanks for pointing out. I need to start looking at the date posted instead of just looking at the thread that pops to the top.

    When you guys got it to work, when did you see the discount? I'm about to hit "Confirm Payment" after entering CC info but still do not see the discount.

    I'm in the process of making a purchase and the free discovery set works for me. I just selected the five selections and added it to the cart.

    What did you choose for your five?

    We offer 5 samples for free with your purchase of one or several full bottles. The 5 samples come in a tin box, in glass spray vials, 1.5 ml each.
    How you get this deal: Put a full bottle into the chart, add a discovery set with your choice of 5 samples into the chart, got to check-out and get a discount on your order in the value of the set. The discount will be subtracted from handling and shipping fees.
    How we ship them: The complimentary discovery set ships from Switzerland, and might reach you separately from your full bottle order (USA) or together with your full bottle order (CH, FR, Austria).
    Limitations: This offer is is for full bottle orders with shipment to: USA, Switzerland, France and Austria

    It really bugs me that Andy is unable to ship to the UK. UK import regs are killing us.

    It's nothing to do with import regulations. It's a choice.

    I messaged Andy about this. It is a choice, correct, but there is so much red tape that it is a choice not worth making for him.

    I'm sure a lot of us import perfume all the time with no trouble either at our end or the sender's. I certainly do.

    My guess is that Tauer's reluctance has more to do with Les Senteurs' UK exclusivity.

    You may be right, but all I know is that getting perfume in and out of this little island of ours is no simple task.

    Andy Tauer is based in Switzerland which is not part of the EU or EEA. This complicates the matter of shipping even more.

    The only relevant complication is the agreement not to undercut Les Sentries.

    They would not be undercutting them, if we look at LDDM, it is €89 on Tauer's website, Les Senteurs sell it for £99, buy the time you add import tax and shipping costs, it will be more expensive or at least a similar price.

    I've never paid duty on a perfume, and if he was sending me a sample pack I'd buy direct from Tauer. In fact I'm visiting the US in August and doing exactly that (bottle of Au Coeur to compliment my LDDM) .

    Getting perfume into the UK is not an issue at all. Getting it out is the issue which is odd as both into and out of use the same shipping equipment, carriers, etc.

    Switzerland is part of the (EU's) single market, so duty would not be due when buying from there and shipping to another EU country. I've had samples arrive from Tauer (direct) and they have never been caught up in customs.

    I've been stung with VAT or duty charges when buying from the US however. Plenty of times.

    The thought had occurred to me, but Les Senteurs are the exclusive UK retailer for Andy Tauer, so they are not technically undercutting him. Premier Avenue would be an alternative place to buy as they have free shipping to the UK, but I wouldn't buy there now. Their price of €119 for the 50ml LADDM comes at around £105 in today's exchange rate. With today's £ vs € volatility I wouldn't bother for the sake of £5-6. You do get some samples from them though.

    Looks like Andy Tauer can no longer ship perfume samples out of Switzerland...

    Thanks for the update. I was ordering an FB and picked my 5 sample pack. Once I added it, the option to ship to the US disappeared. Took me a while to figure out what's happening.
