Victoria's Secret...

Postby 2die4 » Tue, 20 Feb 2007 8:04 am

Since I came here in Singapore, I've been trying to find any Victoria's Secret store or even a stall that offers VS products, unfortunately I can't find any...

I'm running out of stocks for perfume, body wash and lotion and I can't find any VS here...

the closest i got into were some fruity colognes which i don't use...

Anyone knows of any VS shops? or even department stores that offer VS products other than the fruity colognes and stuff?

Particularly i'm looking for VS Pink line (body wash, lotion and perfume)

There aren't any. VS doesn't want to set up a shop here and they don't sell franchises I don't think. (I think it also has something to do with the rampant piracy/copying of ideas here). Can't say as I blame them.

Prada bag, got. $10 only. special. Only for you. :oops:

haha, no thanks sms... :wink:

maybe i'll just have to find something else...

i'd try body shop, however i tried one of their cosmetics and had allergies...

so now, i'm afraid to try their products in fear of getting allergies again...

Why not order online? Any shops you find selling VS products are obviously not authorised resellers as VS does not allows other distributors outside their own 900 or so stores.

According to their FAQ's they do ship overseas but you would have to pay any duty in order to clear customs (I think you can bring in up to $400 duty-free but please don't quote me on that.)

i'd probably give my cousins a call and ask them to ship for me... i think that would probably be cheaper... however i don't know if they can ship liquid... :-k

Check the papers, sometimes i see this VS factory sale going on somewhere in Shenton way/Raffles place area. I have no idea how VS it is but it comes and goes in the papers.

the lingerie and their other stuff... i'm not a big fan...

but this specific line, i fancy the most... because i don't wanna use any other perfume or line of lotions or bodywash that a lor of people are using...

i don't wanna have a scent like everyone else... so i keep to this line of VS...

2die4:

You might want to check out this Shopping Spree thing. They have groups of people pooling together to order stuff from various brands that are not available here, in that way the shipping costs are shared. Never tried it before tho, so not too sure how it is.

They have a spree for VS.
