My brothers, I am one sad puppy. I had scored the deal of the decade. I had won an almost full bottle of Floid Amber on the bay for $11.00 !! and I like it better than the Blue even....maybe....for sure at that price, I was like a kid waiting for Santa as I tracked my package, one city closer each day...then it was here! ....and broken. Not even a drop  left in the bottom. Packed as good as could be asked for but the cap broke in two. I just can't bring myself to pay full pop for one.

Sad day my condolences. Sad I am sure you can grab another if you keep your eyes peeled.

That's terrible news. It sounds to me as if the owner had overtightened the cap in the belief he was playing safe for the transit. Those caps easily split doing that. I've done it to one of my own bottles after use.

(quickly runs to the shave den to loosen the caps on his Floid bottles)

That's exactly what it had done. The cap was split.

The best way to ship Floïd bottles is to tighten the cap without resistance, then use tape to seal it.

No need to cry about anything in shaving these days. The dollar is back to its WWII strength and shopping overseas is as easy as funding the Marshall Plan. lol

I've picked up some great deals with the dollar from overseas vendors.

I would just buy a bottle of the 400ml overseas load up the shopping cart with some other items you have desired to justify the additional shipping cost and enjoy.
