Based on the price comparison, it is still cheapest to buy Chanel from European countries. The tax refund when flying out from EU greatly affects the total price of the item. Despite the latest increase, the price from Europe is still almost a thousand cheaper compared to US, and few hundred dollars cheaper than United Kingdom. Shopping Chanel in Europe also gives you more variety, as more shops are located in different cities.
However, personal experiences may still vary. This comparison only serves as a guide and can be used as a reference for future shopping.
