I just wanted to share that I have received a package ordered from this store on AliExpress, delivered to Toronto:
It was ordered about a month ago which is pretty normal shipping time from AE.
I haven't opened these yet because it's noon and I am not in the right situation to use them. So will update on that later.
But I did want to say that they arrived exactly as pictured, extremely well packaged. In the past, every poppers I have ordered (from European vendors) have always arrived with a couple of them leaking, fucked up and useless. Like you can smell by just holding the package what's in it. (I can only imagine what the various postal workers think about this..) The smell covers all the poppers so they have to be kept in a jar otherwise the entire area smells like chemicals.
One of the items is packaged in a tin box with foam inserts to keep everything in place; the bottles are perfectly sealed (exactly as pictured on the website). The other is packaged in an extremely sturdy well built cardboard box, actually much better than pictured. NO leaking. NO smell.
Then, each of these is in a plastic bag, then they are each carefully covered in bubble wrap by someone who took care to do a good job taping the sides and such. THEN they are in an appropriately sized bubble wrap shipping bag that kept everything securely in place.
In general I don't really like the over packaging that is ubiquitous with many sorts of products. I don't like this weird "unboxing" fetish people have because it's quite wasteful and usually pointless. However in this case, due to the nature of the product I think it is warranted. I hypothosize that getting a package that smells so strong probably increases the chances of having it stopped at the border. (If Health Canada stopped persecuting gay people and allowed us to purchase retail this problem of course would be much helped because bulk packaging could be used.. But I am not able to do anything about that.)
The label on the package states the contents are "slime charms". I have no idea what kind of mistranslation that is. Or is it just random words? Any mandarin speakers here have an idea what this was originally meant to indicate?
I expect these to be at least OK because the reviews on the product page are all positive. There is no indication anywhere as to what the actual contents are. Which is... unideal. But I never know if I could believe what's printed on those bottles anyway, so idk. I have no way of verifying.
These are by far the cheapest poppers I've ever bought, anywhere.
There's some smaller mandarin writing on the side of the tin so maybe I'll see if I can use a translation algorithm to see if there is additional info, though I expect it probably says similar things to what's in English. (Don't put it in your eyes, not for human consumption, flammable.. etc.)
Will update when I try them out.

Would this be it? Wording is difficult to interpret

slime charms maybe like some form of novelty band-wrist, something to do with goths.
It is often better to travel than arrive, yo.

Ugh, I have a hard time buying poppers online from unknown sources, I personally, would not even try some of their poppers. Who knows what impurities or chem differences are there. Not to come off racist or anything, but those guys overseas don't really give af about quality or genuine authentic materials. I've had so many issues with things from AliExpress, a seller advertising stainless and I receive low grade zinc, or I expected silicone and got a type of PVC, or the best one yet diatome mud and they send me literal cardboard, ffs. You just can't trust overseas sellers that have practically 0 regulation (I k how ironic that sounds considering we are using a substance recreationally).

Health Canada is the one creation the zero regulation situation.
Just like all the people who have died and been kidnapped/locked up for "war on drugs".
Some sort of testing strip or something would be great but I have no idea if that would be possible, or what it would test for.

Yes that's it.
