At DESIGNER DIRECT we have a commitment to quality products & authenticity. We don’t sell fakes. Never have. Never will. We guarantee it. New Zealand Customs also do a great job protecting us from fakes, by detecting & destroying fake products.
Perfume is a perishable product. Like wine, it’s damaged by light & extremes of temperature. As the vast majority of perfume trading takes place in New York, many perfume discounters take the cheapest option when importing to New Zealand, which is of course, sea-freight. It’s four weeks from New York to Auckland by sea & COVID related delays mean quite a bit of time on the docks. Even with no delays, they’re in metal containers, at sea for a month – they get hot.
At DESIGNER DIRECT we fly our fragrance. It comes directly from our suppliers’ climate controlled warehousing, to our climate controlled stores, ensuring that the product you buy is exactly as the designer intended. Heat damaged fragrance (we call it ‘Baked’) has its life shortened dramatically. Colour change is the first indicator – they’re darker. The second thing to change is the smell. It’s comparable to a ‘turned’ chardonnay – smelling more like sherry than wine.
Higher end Department Stores look after their product, as we do. But we do beat them up on price.
Discerning shoppers know the difference.
Shop with confidence at DESIGNER DIRECT. We stake our reputation on it, with every bottle we sell.
In addition to our 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE, at DESIGNER DIRECT – WE DO MORE.
We ensure your fragrance maintains its high quality, even after you buy it.
When you get your fragrance home, keep it in the cool & the dark. When they opened the pyramids they found perfume that was still good.
Bags & cars are notorious ‘hot-spots’. You might be all air-conditioned but your luggage in the trunk is not. So, to protect your perfume purchase, we give you a FREE Refillable Travel Atomizer, with every perfume purchased. If you bake it, you haven’t killed the whole bottle – you’ve got more, back in your pyramid.
