Royal Mail won't carry liquids
Retail pack does not come in box
Am I missing something here or is there a reason you can't just put them in a box?

Send it by Hermes.
Dont tell the woman whats in there. Just say its something else. They wont ever know. They cant open it without your say so surely?

she has no right to open your parcel
if its going inside uk its not airmail, so tell them its a childs toy or something.
out of uk theres a tiny risk, teeny tiny, so they can be picky. tell em the same.
ive posted perfume, batteries, cigarettes etc etc etc.... they have to be mauled for anything bad to happen (or be high value for customs charges to kick in)

Yes they do.

. OK. Perhaps I was too vague. They won't carry just a bottle or jar of liquid. Its got to be well and originally packaged and labelled correctly. A full bottle wrapped in bubble and thrown in a jiffy won't get delivered.

well I can see their point now, I'm confused as to why the item can't be properly wrapped up ? it's asking for trouble sending something fragile unprotected.
its to do with air mail, it can still travel by air in the uk, hence why batteries and things have to have a label on the package now
Two choices.

Take it to another post office and lie, or use another courier.

parcelmonkey.co.uk/ can search a few at once.
just lie, the packages don't get xrayed so i doubt anyone cares.
Thanx guys ! Hotukdealers never let me down when I need help I have come to decision to give it another go with different box
Put it in a box, wrap it well and tell the post office assistant that it is in the original box. They will put a sticker on the parcel to say it contains a perfume. Don't tell tell them it is something that it isn't like one of the previous commenters said because then your parcel won't be marked as perfume and it could be destroyed.
