    Beautycounter.com does appear to be the same company. But scentguru.com does.

    BTW, I have not had bad luck with perfumebay.com. But maybe it is a case of spotty quality.

    RE: BIGDISCOUNT.COM

    I just purchased 3 bottles of cologne from Bigdiscount.com this past week. *They had the cheapest prices I could find so I thought I would take a risk and order from them even though I couldn't find any reviews on them. *Glad I gave them a shot. *They shipped my product out on Monday( I ordered on Friday) and I had my juice by Thursday(they are in Florida and I'm in Massachusetts.) No problems at all. *In fact, *I'm putting together a new order so that I can use the $5 off coupon that they sent with my package. *They enclosed a couple of samples too. *

    Alright, I'm game. Hopefully you aren't just one of them plugging yourself though. I'll order a bottle and see what happens. Did you request samples? Or, did they just include them?

    LOL! *I wish I was in the fragrance business....kid in a *candy shop. *I did see that they are selling on ebay...so you could check that out. *I will say that their website could use some tweaking...and thier communication isnt the best I've encountered(a little impersonal.) *But they got my product to me fast and the best prices I could find. *Can't complain.

    And I did not request samples....they just threw them in.

    Big Discount is the online division of the company that wholesales to Perfumania. I have been to their warehouse and can vouch for their stock. I met the owner and he is a good guy etc. Since I work long hours I can't get there often and actually buy sometimes from the site. One of the workers did not know who I was and actually called me to tell me that one of the frags was out of stock. Going there I feel exactly like a kid in a candy shop just like dlux says. I believe they are suppliers to Scentiments as well since they are in the same building.

    WWW.PERFUMEDISTRIBUTOR.COM is the same company WWW.1STPERFUME.COM, just a warning... I checked the address for both companies- 1548 2nd ave. NY NY 10028

    Any problems with Perfumebay.com? I received an incorrect order the other day when I ordered Creed Vetiver ('48) They sent me Guerlain, and have not been prompt in solving the problem...I'm very unimpressed...I have e-mailed them asking how to solve this problem and they have been very lackluster in getting back to me....a 70 dollar difference usually gets noticed promptly especially when called attention to...but I've not heard back.

    I too had a problem with perfume-bay sending me the wrong merchandise. You have to call them. They sent me the correct item in about a weeks time with a return prepaid shipping label so that I could return the incorrect item. Other than that I haven't had any problems with them. I have found that it's always best to call these online merchants with problems like this as they seem to be slow to respond to emails.

    Good luck.

    Now I'm hesitant to buy from Perfumebay again. Does anyone know if parfum1 or scentiments is guilty of shady activites or selling old stock?

    Scentiments has an excellent reputation. I shop their kiosks at the local swap shop quite frequently. Imagination Perfumery is also great.

    To be fair to Perfumebay.com...I pestered them just a little, and they were very prompt to respond and get the situation remedied. I was very appreciative for their quick response and hope to get the right product....like I said I ordered Creed Vetiver (1948)...if I wind up getting original vetiver (which I already own), I may get quite cranky... =)

    I would also like to ditto that Scentiments is fantastic and so is Imagination Perfumery...luckyscent.com is also a favourite for harder to find stuff, they are quite generous with samples and send you some real quality juice...and never samples of what you ordered (but usually other juices from the same house and a few others which they seem to match to what you purchased, sort of a "you liked that, you may like this..." thing.)

    I can vouche for Parfum1.com, I've ordered 2 times in the past 2months, no problems and the frags are smell great. I love perfumebay, but I will never order their samples, they smell off and some gave me a rash. That never happens with their full bottles though.

    dcampen,

    I've received more old stock from this e-retailer than any other. I've order from them numerous times (at least 10 times) with some kind of problem almost every time I've ordered.

    I decided after the last order, in which they sent me a reformulated version of a fragrance I wanted after they had confirmed by phone that they had and were going to send me the vintage version of the fragrance, a bottle whose spray mechanism didn't work, and a bottle of really old stock in a tattered box.

    I have vowed never to buy from them again.

    Let me know what fragrance you're after if it's a hard-to-find fragrance, and I'll help you track down a more reliable source if I can. If it's not a hard-to-find fragrance, I'd suggest you buy it from a more reputable e-retailer.

    Question Anyone purchase off of FragranceNet?

    In particular any creeds of that site? The reason I ask is because I was recently given a bottle of GIT for my birthday and I think it is a fake. There is a topic on here about spotting fake creed's and mine sort of fit the bill. I sprayed it on today for the first time and was aware that it did not smell like the decant of GIT I purchased here from a fellow Basenoter. The scent kind of just faded away and didn't progress as much as I remebered it. I don't know if I have a fake or not so I need your guys help. Thanks.

    Fragrancenet.com is my main place; however, I'm a newbie so you probably should ask someone else. LOL

    I bought my Creed Taborome (the newer one) from them. I'm not familiar with Creed products but Taborome had no sillage. It lasted for 10-15 minutes max. I'm not sure if that's normal or not.

    Anyways, Fragrancenet has sent me old/bad product once or twice, but overall I would say I'm 90% happy with them.

    I ended up selling my Creed Taborome on ebay, and the guy who bought it was pleased.

    I've used Fragrancenet for about four years with few problems.

    I have purchased from them many times with no problems. I've bought a few Creeds from them too and they are real.
    Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!

    I recommend them as well. Look online for their discount codes too, they're always plenty. (I would have given you the 20% off code if it didn't expire 2 days ago.) The Creed Himalaya I bought was fine and the date on the box was pretty recent (2005.)

    I just have this fear that it is a fake. I dont know why. I guess after seeing that topic it really made me scared that mine was a fake because it matched up with some of the stuff that fake creeds have.

    I ordered a 1.7 oz of Armani Code and a 1.7 oz of Guess Man from FragranceNet. with the lucky coupon and free shipping, total price was 54 dollars (cheaper than buying them on ebay). They gave me a tracking number, big thumbs up in my book. Package arrived quickly, within a week, and the boxes of both bottles were still in shrink wrap. So far so good. To my surprise, they had sent me a 2.5 oz bottle of Guess Man. Whether it was a mistake or a Christmas present, I'll never know, but I highly recommend FragranceNet.

    Yeah, they did that to me too. When they are out of the size you order, they will automatically ship you the next biggest size if available. Atleast that has been my experience.

    It's a great business practice if you ask me.

    Thumbs up Re: Anyone purchase off of FragranceNet?

    I have purchased from FragranceNet several times with great results. I have been able to find scents I am not able to find anywhere online without paying ridiculous prices. I give them a thumbs up!

    I've had nothing but good experiences with them.
    When I smell good, I feel good! Sounds easy doesn't it? It is...a pleasant scent is great for good moods!!

    Question trusted places to order online

    I usually buy my cologne at Nordstrom or Macy's. Are there cheaper places to buy online that are selling the real product that anyone would recommend? Thanks

    fragrancenet.com I've had good luck with them in the past. Great deals and good service.

    I have tried fragrancex, fragrancenet, strawberrynet and I found them quite reliable and attentive. They are the only ones that have better discount, small postage and handling fee and willing to ship to Asia.
