What is a tester?

Testers are original perfumes that are often offered in an outer carton without a label or cellophane. Testers are most often produced in the largest range of branded perfumes. The most commonly used packaging is 100 ml but maybe in embodiment 50, 75, 90, 125, or any other variant. The purpose of this type of product is to show and present the scent before being purchased in large perfumeries and shopping centers. Usually, the testers are not for sale, but very often they are sold and resold in the distribution and sales network. (That is us!) Each tester contains 100% original perfume liquid, identical in composition to the officially packaged perfume.

How to distinguish the official tester of perfume?

It’s easy. When you buying perfume online, make sure you’re buying exactly. Many of these products are described whether the tester (TESTER) or product having a color package (and cellophane). Testers are just as preferred as perfumes and you can find them at many online perfume stores. If you buy perfume without packaging, carton and packaging design without a brand, there is a chance for this to be a tester. The official perfumes are branded packaging and a different price. Normally higher than the tester. We go to great lengths to mark all our fragrances as exactly what they are so its clear.

What is the difference between a tester and a simpler?

Do you know what is simple? You may think of small miniature branded vials filled with perfume liquid of the respective brand perfume. These are promotional samples that are distributed free of charge or used to test the fragrance. Typically, small samplers contain about 1.2 ml of perfume fluid, unlike testers, usually in a large vial identical to the perfume itself. They are not sold or used for any purpose other than advertising. Their function is once feeling the smell, to get an idea about the essence of the product.

What is the difference between perfume and tester?

From a marketing perspective, the difference between perfume tester in their packaging. The perfume has an official one, and the tester doesn’t! Testers contain the same perfume liquid, but often sold without the luxury package, but only in such transport. It is possible sometimes to find them without caps and tags that perfumes with official packaging have.

Is the tester more durable than official perfumes?

Every tester is as long as perfume. The durability of the perfumes and testers is the same but strongly depends on how it is stored. If you do an experiment and leave an official perfume and tester in your purse without caps for more than a month, you will feel the difference in the durability of both. This is because liquid perfume effloresces when you do not keep well, so the aroma is losing its intensity. However, it is extremely important to clarify that both types of perfume products are manufactured in the same place with the same fragrance formulation of perfumers, even in identical vials. The difference between them is that the perfume is available in the official advertising package and the tester comes without one.

Why should I buy a tester?

One of the great benefits of buying a tester is the LOW PRICE it offers. Who doesn't love a bargain, right? It's also a great way to experience different fragrances which you might not usually try because of the hefty price tag!
