It is my steadfast belief that even people on an embargo should be well aware of their options. 😉
Also in the interest of public service I took it upon myself to investigate a new online-store located in Antwerp, Belgium. Parfuma.com carries many niche and hard-to-find perfumes brands as well as many cosmetics and skincare lines.
Among many interesting perfume houses like Armani Privé, Tom Ford, Amouage and Serge Lutens, they carry harder to find lines like Byredo, Odin, Juliette has a Gun, Donna Karan Collection, Van Cleef& Arpels Collection and even Atelier Cologne. Most interestingly for me at the moment is that they also carry the entire Parfum d’Empire line.
For my birthday I ordered Equistrius (yes, and Ambre Russe, but don’t shoot me, okay?) from them and mentioned my interest in the entire line. When my box arrived safely a few days later I was extremely happy to find samples of the entire line in there, including travels sprays of the three most recent perfumes (Wazamba, Aziyadé and Fougére Bengale).
I was very happy with the customer service and the choice of products is not huge, but very good, one can hope that they will expand their line-up over time.
