No ,perfume is cheaper at home.

The only thing cheaper in Tenerife are alcohol and Cigarettes.

You may get offers of perfume and body lotion or travel size exclusive to airports but otherwise it's better in the Uk .

Buy your perfume in Superdrug or Boots much much cheaper than duty free,

The days of cheap perfume in Tenerife have long gone. You're as well to order online or look for special offers in the shops in the UK.

There is no way that is real - certain to be counterfeit so no one should entertain it. No branded perfume manufacturer would sell their product in this way.

You mean this pint of Channel I bought for 10 euros is not real ??????????All joking aside most perfumes are cheaper in England,but did get some bargains in Porto Colon,big shop on front sells smellies/cloths/handbags etc., all branded at good prices.Can not remember name of shop,strange name,but great value.Wife got a lovely GUESS handbag,it was a third of price here in UK,SO THERE ARE BARGAINS TO BE HAD.Just remembered think shop was called FUND GRUBE,knew it was strange name.

Anything you buy in Fund Grube will be the real McCoy and not some knock off. www.costa-adeje.es/en/shopping/fund-grube

I purchased a couple of perfumes in Fund Grube whilst in Tenerife last October - Opium and Light Blue, both were the real deal and saved approximately 10% on UK prices. I also purchased several Pandora charms which again were about 8 Euros cheaper than the UK.
