Vera Wang is one of the perfumes I personally use so I bought the item as a Christmas gift and had it shipped to another state. The fragrance set arrived timely and it was in perfect condition. However, I made the assumption that the perfume set would have been wrapped prior to being placed in the shipping box because I selected the radio button next to the statement, "the item is a gift". My mother-in-law was a bit surprised when she opened the shipping box early (to put the gift under her tree) and discovered the fragrance set unwrapped. She didn't have any complaints though - she loves the Vera Wang product. In the end it all worked out, although I would have paid a reasonable amount to have the package gift wrapped.
