Buying fragrances online from Target?

    Buying fragrances online from Target?

    post #1 of 7
    Thread Starter 

    I recently ordered Gendarme by Gendarme from the official website in a 1 oz bottle for $30

    Searched to see if I could find the body wash and oddly enough Target has a 4 oz bottle for sale for $40 dollars.

    Should I order from Target and send back the one I purchased from the official Gendarme website?

    Does Target sale oldstock?

    I've ordered a Sean John Fragrance in the past from Target, and had no problems.

    I have ordered from fragrancenet many times and no issue. I have heard that Gendarme does not age that well. So a fresh batch is best. Are the Target batches old stock?

    what would you do in this situation or any other basenoters. keep the 1 mil for $30 from gendarme com or pay 10 bucks more and the 4 ounce from target.com for $40?.

    I personally have never ordered online from Target for fragrance but I would imagine that there would be no worries.They back what they sell.

    I have purchased from target before. They sell junk.

    My bottle of Guerlain Habit Rouge was counterfeit. I took a photo of the bottle they sold me next to an original and sent them the photo. My money was refunded to me immediately.

    I am very surprised they sold you a counterfeit, but not surprised at all that they refunded your money immediately.
