Sending perfumes to Singapore can be a tricky task, as many courier services such as Fedex do not ship fragrances due to their flammable content. Even companies that do, such as TNT, require proper labeling, packaging and documentation in order to move these items safely and in compliance with dangerous goods regulations. Alcohol is one of the ingredients in perfumes and other beauty products, and many countries prohibit shipping. As a licensed Dangerous Goods shipper, OPAS can ship perfumes to many destinations, but there are additional costs and some limitations on the service that can be used, from one country to another.
Perfumes are usually a blend of perfume oils and alcohol, but many connoisseurs consider alcohol to be a “filler that dilutes the essential fragrance”. To ensure that your shipment is accepted, it is essential to know what to use and how to label packages containing perfume. Even if you use custom packaging, there will still be plenty of room for your perfume bottle to move inside your package.
I recently bought some fragrances using a freight forwarding service in the US. But it was noted that they cannot be shipped to Singapore. Obviously, renowned houses and brands such as Dior or Tom Ford are found internationally and are not formulated or bottled in those countries, so perfumes have to be able to be distributed in some way. This means that having a solid understanding of the ins and outs of how to send perfumes and how to send makeup, in general, is key.
FedEx Cross Border cannot ship prohibited and unapproved restricted items on behalf of its customers. To make sure your shipment is accepted, you must pack, mark and document your package in accordance with dangerous goods regulations. It is also important to check the list of products that the carrier does not accept: fireworks, weapons, controlled substances, etc.
In conclusion, sending perfumes to Singapore can be done with the help of a licensed Dangerous Goods shipper such as OPAS. However, it is important to take into account additional costs and limitations on the service that can be used from one country to another. It is also essential to know what to use and how to label packages containing perfume in order for your shipment to be accepted.
