Yes you do get duty free in Europe but it is not cheaper - honest sad

I thought they just gave discounts but you still had to pay duty except in non EU countries like Switz

Duty Free
Some luxury or souvenir shops as well as some stores in airports might advertise with “Euro Free Tax” or similar terms. This can either be general publicity terms or it might refer to special rules that apply when you travel to a country outside the EU. You might then be allowed to pay lower VAT or duty on a limited number of goods, since you are not considered to be in any one country during your travel. Similar “duty free” shopping does not exist when you travel between EU-countries, because all of the EU is one single market.

The normal Chanel no 5 is available in the Flybe mag - not the travel spray though. You do save a bit on high street prices.
