    Default Any German Members on here? Looking to purchase H.H. Tobacco Aftershave

    Shipping may be the biggest obstacle. Have been unable to find a U.S. source for this product. Amazon Germany has it but does not ship it to the states.

    If any of my fellow members here have a source or solution to getting some. I am very curious to try it. Thanks in advance, Ken.

    I live in Germany and get it for you and get it shipped to you. I don't use nor plan to use it myself so can't send you a sample to try.

    You know that it's not allowed to send alcoholic liquids abroad? That's why Amazon.de doesn't ship Aftershave to the US and we here in Germany cannot buy stuff like Fine or Stirling AS because they are not allowed to ship it to Europe. We Germans can't even buy alcoholic Aftershaves in the UK (Taylor for example does not ship to Germany)

    Alcoholic liquids like Perfumes and Aftershaves are "hazardous goods" and as such must not be transported by air mail.

    This is an excerpt from DHL's transport regulations:

    Bitte beachten Sie, dass viele Produkte des täglichen Bedarfs im Transportrecht als Gefahrgut gelten, bei denen wir es nicht für möglich halten, weil wir ihre gefährlichen Eigenschaften häufig völlig falsch einschätzen. Zu diesen Gefahrgütern zählen zum Beispiel entzündbare Produkte wie Haarsprays, Deosprays, Parfüms, Nagellacke, Streichhölzer, Tischtennisbälle, Erfrischungstücher und Lithiumbatterien usw.

    Der Versand von Gefahrgut mit dem Paketprodukt DHL Paket International ins Ausland ist gem. den DHL-AGB Paket International nicht zugelassen. (...) Bei Zielländern mit Flugzeugbeförderung kommt zusätzlich hinzu, dass gem. den Gefahrgutvorschriften der International Air Transport Association (IATA-DGR) der Luftpostversand von Gefahrgut verboten ist.

    Hey Marverel. Yes I was aware of shipping regulations. I am still in the process of researching options to get it shipped, by a carrier that will put it on a boat/ship.
    It may be an exercise in futility. But I like a challenge.
    Kees, If I can come up with a legal and easy way for you to send me some bottles of it. I will PM you. I appreciate your offer. If there is something that is difficult to source locally for you. And I can get it for you. I would gladly return the favor. Ken

    It just came to me: My wife and I will be on vacation in Florida in February. And since the airlines do allow Aftershaves in checked baggage (which is strange if you think about it) I could bring 1 or 2 bottles and then send it to you from a Florida Post office.

    Wunderbar!
    Thank you for making such a generous offer. I would love that.
    Wish you were coming to someplace closer to me. I would be happy to take you and your wife on a tour of my home town of Baltimore. Even Washington DC, Philadelphia or New York are day trips for me from where I live.

    It does seem after some considerable time researching online. And with a few phone calls that shipping any small amount of aftershave , cologne or perfume. Is extremely cost prohibitive.

    I'll PM you my personal E-mail address and we can work out the specifics. Hope your day is going well. Your note has certainly brightened my day. Ken

    That would have been fun! We have visited DC and New York a few years ago, but we've never been to Baltimore or Philadelphia - and nothing beats a guided tour by a local

    And I'm glad I can help.
