Reiss Parfum Trio x 7ml
Disappointing box for a high end label.
Initially I was really pleased when this arrived - it is more impressive than the photo shows. Each vile is approximately 9cm long. However, this was to be given as a gift and what the photo's do not show is the lid of the box. It has a gold square with the Reiss design, but it was very scuffed and the underside of the box dirty in appearance. It has no cellophane wrapping. I ordered a replacement and received a similar in exchange. It truly looked as though it had been in the bottom of a wardrobe for a couple of years. in essence a lovely item but the box & lack of wrapping lets it down.

Presentation boxes not fit for sale
I read the previous reviewer's comments regarding the disappointing state of the box she'd bought. However, I liked the look of the item and thought she might have just been unlucky. I ordered three. Mistake. The product is fine but all three boxes were scuffed, dirty, dented; they looked as if they'd been knocking around the back of a warehouse for 12 months. Certainly not gift-worthy. I took them back to a store and they were refunded politely and apologetically. It would be better if Boots made clear the condition of the boxes and let the customer make his/her own choice, because whilst it might be ok for personal use, you certainly couldn't give one as a gift. If you're wondering why none of these are on display in store and are online only, now you know.
