    DW always does her annual selection at Duty Free when we leave. We figure we won't get something outta date.

    If you find one that is obscure or 'rare' there's a good chance it could be outta date.... and from personal experience, a cologne can change scent over time!

    To be honest I used to buy perfumes in Aruba years ago at Maggie’s. I find prices are much better in the US through certain websites. For example if you want a certain Burberry fragrance type the exact name in google and add - best price. Fragrance.net will probably come up and they are great. Some items are 50% off. The discount varies but that is the way my husband and I get our fragrances.

    good point Colette thanks I agree - just like doing certain shopping there since I have been doing so long - Amazon and others have my attention the other 364 days of the year when I am not in Aruba. LOL - But I will compare.

    DUFRY on Main Street has been pretty good for some of the more obscure brands/releases.
