Most people are breaking Australian Laws by doing this and my PO lady said the other day they are starting to crack down on this and handing out hefty fines. Unless you have the appropriate licence you are committing an offence by using the postal service. Due to flamamble nature of the product. Also many would not be aware you are not supposed to post batteries either.
Wow, I never knew about the batteries. I recently sent a clock with AA battery inserted. I asked the woman at the PO if it would be ok because it was audibly ticking lol & I wondered if it would get me into trouble for that. But she just said if they had any queries they'd just unpack it & repack. But that it was unlikely to be a quiet enough environment for anyone along the way to hear. No mention of no batteries at all. It did get there fine too!
If you want to send perfume via courier you need to obtain a Data Sheet that explains the content of the perfume. I rang an official distributor for a French perfume to obtain one and she told me (probably illadvisedly) to just send it via AP but label it as Skincare and at a very low value. I did so and am now paranoid I'll get done for it!! But I think it is crazy!!!! How many people have perfume in their luggage when they travel?? How many poeple get duty free perfume and alcohol and take them on planes everyday??? All flammable, all containing alcohol.
The crazy thing is that I bought the perfume online from America, it was sent to me and I couldnt send it out of Australia to the person overseas that I bought it for!!
