Fragrances and perfumes are products that we indulge ourselves into because they make us feel good, attractive and ….. pleasant to be with.
Everyone of us has his favorite fragrance, be it Chanel Nr. 5, Dior J’adore, La vie est Belle by Lancôme, Opium, or Paco Rabanne’s best selling 1 Million. These belong to the most popular names of perfumes sold in the world today.
Buying perfumes is a pleasure. We all enjoy visiting the stores, being captured by the magic of the numerous brands competing for our attention. Some of the most famous and successful stores in Paris and especially on the Champs Elysées are Sephora and Marionnaud. Thanks to their central location, they attract a lot of shoppers looking for the latest fragrance or simply their favorite perfume.
It is also possible to compare prices of duty free fragrances at several airports on this duty free price page.
These stores enable non EU residents to buy without taxes (or tax free). When you buy a perfume and ask for a « détaxe », you get a voucher that you have to clear at a kiosk when leaving the French territory. The amount of discount is usually 12%, which is LESS than the full V.A.T. amount.
Another way to buy tax free perfumes is to buy online, from specialised websites.
Easy Duty Free is one of the websites specialised in Tax Free shopping in France. One of the advantages of Easy Duty Free is to enable shoppers to get a full VAT refund on their perfumes and fragrances, which amounts to roughly 17% of the amount.
