    I have to give kudos to LilyDirect.com. I had never used them before and they had a great price on 3.4 oz Montales ($109.00) I wanted Black Musk and Moon Aoud but since I had no experience with them - I only purchased one and would see how the transaction went. Well I received my Black Musk and went back to purchase the Moon Aoud and noticed the price had jumped to $140.00 (apparently Montale controls the minimum price that vendors can sell at). I called LilyDirect and they were so helpful and agreed to honor the $109.00 price tag that I had purchased the Black Musk at. Great people to work with. A rarity these days.

    I have still not used them yet - but glad to hear you had a very positive experience. I will certainly consider using them in the future. Congrats on the good price!

    Yeah, they were great to deal with and even if the prices don't stay this low - it's good to know they're honest, attentive and reliable.

    They honored the price for me also. Did you speak to John there. I bought 6 Montales on Friday of last week and they arrived on Monday of this week..

    ^^ Ugh... Losing respect for theperfumshoppe right now... had them in my bookmarks and was planning on eventually getting something from them. But I would pay the same price at lilydirect just because of this.

     

    Was thinking about buying some Amouage form lilydirect, but when I went back and saw the prices, I didn't :(

    That's great to hear that my customer service was not an isolated event. Kudos to LilyDirect and shame on theperfumshoppe.

    +1. I was very close to ordering MKK from theperfumeshoppe. That ain't happening now. I'd rather go without.

     

    On the other hand, I wish lilydirect sold MKK. And Knize Ten for that matter.

     

    [Edit: I just noticed now from JiveHippo's post that even if it did, LD does not ship north of the border. Damn.]

    Yeah LD is great place to buy fragrances.

    I wondered why the Amouage went up so much in price. Guess I won't be buying another as I had hoped. Sad...

    Very appreciative of this thread. I have purchased from Lily Direct before and I plan to do so again. However, The Perfume Shoppe was just removed from my bookmarks.

    If this is the truth about the perfume shoppe then I'm through with that place. And I'll def check lily direct in the future!

    I stopped shopping at ThePerfumeshoppe a while ago, they are shady.  I remember on the facebook page, it said Naz grew up in Zanzibar (which is an island of the coast of Africa) and they put random google photos of the Serengeti LOL , which are poles apart. Zanzibar is nothing like that even lol. 

     

    As for Lilydirect, I have purchased a vintage TDH, 3 montales. Their customer service is amazing. They are a new company and Im sure they will do really well in the future.

    To all of basenotes community,

    We would like to clarify all the rumors that has been going on with the price increase. We did honor the old pricing one last time because we felt that we did increase all of our prices within a day.

    Regards,
    Lily direct

    Lets just say LilyDirect is a great company, with a great owner that's doing his best to bring us great prices.

    All other allegations are of a sensitive nature and shouldn't be spread around carelessly.

    John is a stand up guy, and went out of his way for his customers.

    Like I said in another thread, even at it's current price, you save some money. And that's much better than not having saved anything at all!
