Testers come in various sizes and forms of packing – some come with a simple white or brown box with or without a cap and may be labeled “Tester”. The quality of the perfumes themselves is not affected at all and is the same as the one in the retail fancy box. But the price is much lower. All our testers are sold unused, with the entire original quantity in the container. A great way to buy quality at a discounted price!

– Is it the same product?

Yes absolutely, without the testers the fragrance houses cannot promote the products; therefore it is 100% guaranteed the same product.
