Let price of perfume bottle = Rs 100
for picking 3 bottles =Rs 300
then u will be given 1 bottle free worth Rs 100 for 2 bottles and no offer for 1 bottles let
thus 300 spend for product worth Rs 400
discount =100/300=33.33%

Each price X ,
For 3 actual price 3X
But we are paying only 2X as the third is free
so the discount is
(3X-2X)/3X * 100 = 33.33%
