When it comes to online shopping, do you prefer to purchase directly from a brand’s website, or from stores like Sephora and Ulta, which stock a wide variety of brands? Usually, I prefer the latter. It gives me the chance to try lots of products from different brands and, often, at a discount too. But there’s an exception: niche perfume brands.
Their websites often offer discovery kits or samples that allow you to try fragrances that are difficult to find in your area at a very cheap price. One of the best deal is offered by Juliette Has A Gun, founded by Romano Ricci. Its discovery kit features 9 scents, and costs only €10,00! But of course you can purchase full size bottles and scented candles too.
Making an order is easy. You just visit the eboutique and place whatever you want in your cart. Then, hit checkout. Here, you can get an estimation of P&P. Several options are available, so you can choose the one that best fits your needs. Keep in mind that the faster the delivery, the more it’s going to cost. But if you don’t care for next day delivery, you can get your package shipped to your door within 3 to 6 days for free.
But let’s take a step back. Before anything can be delivered, it must be paid for. At checkout, you have two options. You can create an account or shop as a guest. I prefer the latter method. It’s true that, that way, you won’t be able to track your order, but at least you won’t have to remember another login/password combination, and your credit card details won’t be stored on the website. But if you plan to purchase from the website often, or you feel more at ease if you’re able to keep track of your order, then it’s worth it to create an account.
Next, you need to fill in a form with your address and payment information. As always, I opted to pay with paypal, but I believe you can use credit cards too. As mentioned above, delivery is quick. I received my sample set, carefully packaged and intact, within five days. I just wish they offered individual samples too so that, as the delivery kit is updated with new releases, you won’t have to repurchase all the scents just to try the new one.
Shopping at Juliette Has A Gun eboutique is easy. You can choose to create an account or shop as a guest, pay with paypal or credit cards, and have your order delivered for free within a few days. Everything is carefully packaged too.
