Saint Honoré - Beauty Products
Saint Honoré commenced as a distribution company selling duty-free cosmetics and perfumes from the Colón Free Zone, Panama and then exporting these brands to various countries in Latin America. The first retail beauty outlet was opened in Fort Amador at the mouth of the Panama Canal, which is now a resort complex. Since then they have expanded their markets to Bolivia, Chile, Uruguay, Colombia and Costa Rica and some of the luxury fragrance brands represented by The Group include, Cartier, Chanel, Gucci and D&G.
The in-flight duty-free magazine and site for LAN Airlines (LATAM) is operated by the Firm and now they run tax free shops in the border regions between Brazil and Uruguay. Branded partnership boutiques include Hermès and L’Occitane en Provence, whilst their own perfumery brand, Amphóra Beauty Shop, functions in the domestic markets of Costa Rica and Bolivia. Prices found in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and Santa Cruz can be much cheaper than the surrounding countries, especially Brazil.
Tourists and business travellers all seek a bargain on their travels, hence the many questions related to tax-free and duty-free shopping.
'Where are the best duty free prices, buying a TV duty-free, list of shops, store hours, carrying liquids thru, can you shop at?', these are just some of the questions we receive on the subject.
Our suggestion is to search your travel shopping requirements by destination or carrier, rather than by brand or product. The reason being that duty-free prices and rules vary by country or even your mode of transport. So, check your destination first, by using the search facility provided above.
